Ocean Magic Wildlife Adventure March 26 2011

March 29, 2011

Captain Anthony slipped the Ocean Magic from its berth in Victoria’s inner harbour and took us out into the Salish Sea. Our trip took us east to Chatham and Discovery islands. Here the marine life was everywhere, harbour seals, blue herons, eagles and cormorants. We then crossed Haro Strait and headed to Whale Rock, this small island was home today to many Stellar Sea Lions and a pair of Bald Eagles. We also caught sight of Harbour Porpoise near the island. Our sharp eyed crew then spotted a huge group of Bald Eagles on a small nearby island, we slowly approached and observed over 20 Bald Eagles resting, flying and playing in the wind. Truly amazing. This was great wildlife viewing experience, our talented crew of Mika, Mark and Dan kept us informed of all we saw and answered all the questions posed by our passengers. Yet another wonderful time of the water with Prince of Whales!
