Ocean Magic Adventure Oct 17 12:15

October 17, 2010

Our Skipper Anna, slipped the Ocean Magic II out of Victoria’s inner harbour and out past the breakwater in search of marine wildlife. Our trip took us east along the waterfront past Trial Island and onto Discovery Island. Here just off the shoreline Jeff spotted a Grey Whale. This whale has been in our area all summer, working the shallow water along the shoreline for its food. Our trip then continued on out into Haro Strait. Here we took in the amazing sight of the largest grouping of Harbour Porpoise and Dall’s Porpoise I have ever seen. These sleek fast swimmers were working the water all around the Ocean Magic, and we shut down and drifted as we took in the sight of these feeding mammals. Then Mika spotted a Minkie Whale, and we were soon in perfect position to view this magnificent whale. It would raise its head free of the water for a breath, then slip back down below the water. This was yet another great Marine Wildlife Adventure with Prince Of Whales.
