June is off to a killer start (pun intended)!
As the unofficial start to our peak season, everyone has high expectations for the beginning of June, and 2016 did not disappoint.
The steady increase of transient orca over the past years has not abated; sightings that used to feel like a rare treat, or an unpredictable bonus, are rapidly becoming a staple in our shoulder seasons. Unsurprisingly, given their name, transient orca are constantly moving, rarely staying in one place for more than a few days, but as their numbers rise, when one family leaves an area, more often than not it seems, another one appears!
In addition to T’s, we have had to joy of hosting the first humpbacks of the season. While a rare and stunning sighting keeps us guessing in the winter months, the humpbacks don’t typically arrive in large numbers until summer is in full swing. This year however they are already making their presence known in the spring, and we’re not complaining. Big Mama,
