An amazing day observing the sights and sounds of the surrounding marine life ~ seeing orcas and humpback whales with brilliant viewing while sailing!

Today was a day to enjoy the wind and some drops of rain! Not long into the trip, we spotted blows in the distance, it was the I35’s making their way from Weynton Passage across the top end of Johnstone Strait and as they  gracefully swam together, we sailed along with them as the SE winds today enabled us to do so. 311 more words

Awesome sailing with whales!

What a fabulous day it turned out to be after the gloomy weather that we began our tour with this morning! We headed across the top of Blackfish Sound in search of the I15 Orcas that had been reported travelling out of Blackfish Sound earlier and on our way we spotted numerous humpback whale blows in the distance. 438 more words
