Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) Today we saw everything! We started our trip with sighting Argonaut (humpback)! Later in the day we IDd Hunter. We saw a total of 6, yes, 6 humpbacks sprinkled throughout the day. We saw roughly 26 orca from the A23s, A24s, A42s and A34s. We were lucky enough to see breaching, fishing and even some rubbing! Fife came to say hello and we got to hear him talking (to himself). We ended off with an eagle and a baby eagle, a sea lion, a pod of surfing dolphins and a bunch of napping seals. Today was a blessing from Mother Nature. Additional Comments: Bill, Marieke and Sophie made the trip so special. It was great to learn about the history and culture of the wildlife in this area. Thank you!

Trip Highlights: (where we went, what we saw, etc.) Today we saw the A23s, A24s, A34s and T87 (pods of orcas). We also saw some humpbacks, Pacific white-sided dolphins and eagles. My favourite was the A23s at Cracroft Island. I now like humpbacks more than before (partly because they have an awesome ID guide). Additional Comments: The food was good and you should have an 8 hour tour.
