Keeping you guys informed on our whale sightings is definitely one of the best parts of my job, and today is no exception. (Although, who am I kidding, I whale watch for a living, every part of my job is awesome!) We had a fabulous winter wildlife tour out this week. Skipper Mark took 8… Read more »
EDUCATION. CONSERVATION. EXPLORATION. INNOVATION.
We’ve got quite a lot to report this week so I’m just gonna dive right in! While last week’s sightings were dominated by humpbacks, this week it was all about the killer whales! And not the transients, whom we normally spend more time looking for in the winter months, but our resident orca! On Thursday… Read more »
Happy 2015! This year has already started out with a bang. We’re sitting at a 100% success rate for 2015! Ok, I know, six days in, that’s not all that impressive, but we like to be optimistic. We’ve had two trips out and both of them were treated to a spectacular look at humpback whales!
So I got very excited last week (it happens a lot when it comes to whales and me, I think I’m in the right line of work). I just had to tell you guys about the SUPER POD! Last Wednesday, November 26th, Skipper Mark took a zodiac of excited passengers out into the middle of nowhere.… Read more »
Ok ok ok! I know I said there wouldn’t be daily reports anymore, but this one is barely a report. Just a little baby snippet, because I couldn’t resist. We found killer whales today! This fact, in and of itself, is not that spectacular. Exciting, wonderful, and awesome, yes. But crazy out of the ordinary? No.… Read more »
Wow, this year just won’t quit! Even as the quantity of our trips slows down for the season, the quality remains top notch. We’ve seenwhales on every trip we’ve taken out in November! That’s just bonkers. A little summary of the last week for you: Weekends tend to be our most popular time, and on… Read more »
It was with some quiet and serene passengers that Mark plunged into the unknown this morning. The sky was clear, but the waves were sizable, so Mark opted to stick to calmer water and man, did it pay off! We work very closely with other companies on the water in order to locate whales. No… Read more »
The weather was confused again today. We had rain in the morning and incredible sunshine in the afternoon. The water was super calm; we had no winds forecast over 5kts! Jeff, Matt and I took Ocean Magic II out at 12:30pm to grey skies and flat water. We left a little late to accommodate a couple… Read more »
Today Ocean Magic II had the pleasure of embarking on a special charter. We were out at 1pm and had an action packed trip! It was me and the boys today! The crew included Captain Jeff, me as First Mate, and Naturalists Matt and Rowan, as well as our Photographer Marie. As always, we work… Read more »
Ocean Magic II was all alone on the water today. We had the ocean all to ourselves! While we heard about some other companies going out later this afternoon, at 12:15pm we were literally the only whale watching boat on the water. But this time of year, that’s no problem. Jeff, Matt and I know… Read more »
