August 18th - Orcas for everyone!
On August 18th, we headed North in search of orca. Our boats located the T46’s and the T46B’s just off of Lantzville. The T46B pod is very special, being the pod of T46B1B - “Tl’uk” the WHITE orca! These two pods are also closely related, with the matriarchs (T46 - “Wake” and T46B - “Raksha”) being mother and daughter respectively. T46B split off from her mother’s pod to start her own pod, which now consists of eight individuals including herself! It seems like Raksha is doing great as a matriarch!
In the afternoon we spent some time with the T49’s. We travelled Southbound towards Active Pass where they were spotted travelling along. We travelled with them back North before heading out to find some more wildlife!
Here are the best pictures from the day by Naturalists Ryan and Rebeka:
