Zodiac Wildlife Adventure Oct 3 1pm

October 3, 2010

With Skipper James at the controls, the 1pm Zodiac this Sunday afternoon decided to go for the long haul and headed east and then north up Haro Strait where reports of Southern Resident Orca were in bound from East Point at Saturna Island. It was a beautifully calm trip with sightings of Dall’s Porpoise along our route. A pretty spinnaker sailboat caught our attention as we passed the picturesque scenery of the Gulf Islands.We were thrilled to find members of J and K Pods traveling the choppy waters of Boundary Pass. They were frolicking together with many tactile behaviours. We were able to identify, J 27 and J 26 as well as K 25, K21 and K 40. One even breached for us. Although we didn’t see the sunshine until once back in the harbour, our trip was full of exciting looks at these magical creatures as well as the Ferry, ‘COHO’ that travels to Port Angeles, across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and the Norwegian Pearl, cruise ship,moored at the harbour for the last time this season. It was another awesome trip in these rich, cold waters of the west coast .
