Wow! What a week! Resident killer whales every day, doing the San Juan shuffle, and humpbacks and minke whales coming out of the woodwork left, right, and centre.
The days of multi-species trips are upon us! This is actually early in the season for such a high success rate involving multiple species. Usually we don’t start getting large numbers of humpbacks until August, but their early appearance this year is not bothering anyone.
June wrapped up with an official success rate of 96% and July is off to a whopping 100% success rate for whale sightings! Yes, I know, we’re only 4 days in to July, but it’s still exciting ok?
We are firmly in our peak season now with things picking up both on the water and in the city of Victoria. This week we celebrated Canada Day, and every weekend brings in cruise ships, exciting festivals, and events in the downtown core. We couldn’t be more excited to be right in the thick of it; we really work in the best place in the world!
As far as whales go, we’ve been seeing mostly J-pod in recent days,
