The Charter vessel, ‘Pacific Explorer ‘ headed out of the harbour under sunny skies, and turned East to meet up with some of the Southern Resident Orca, that forage for fish, especially Salmon at this time of year. Today they were reported off the west coast of San Juan Island. We had glimpses of Harbour Porpoises, a very shy cetacean, on the way across Haro Strait. Near False Bay we were able to see some members of L Pod, L 88, ‘Wave Walker ‘ and L 41, ‘Mega ‘. One of the adult male Orca, delighted those of us on board with several beaches. These behavioural displays are always a big hit for our guests. We spent time with a few of L Pod whales while they foraged far apart from one another. On the return to the harbour we were pleased to see a Bald Eagle and some Harbour Seals on rocks at Chatham and Discovery Islands off Oak Bay. Although the clouds had moved in, we were able to see much of the incredible wildlife found in these waters. We were also privileged to share a happy moment with two of our guests, who celebrated their engagement on board. Just another fabulous trip with Prince of Whales.
