However in this case you can see the wash from the boat so we were moving when the pacific white sided dolphins came to play. There were a number of pods is our area this summer. Confusing is the definition of a pod: “A group of dolphins is called a pod. A pod usually is formed of around 12 dolphins and it is the usual social group of dolphins. However, when a group of pods join in places with abundance of food, they can reach up to one thousand individuals forming a large group which is called a super pod.” The confusion it that our pods normally contain between fifty to one hundred dolphins which may be a result of the “abundance” of food in our viewing area.
“Mom I’ve got a secret. There is somebody over there in a boat watching us.” The spring grizzly bear tours from our lodge on BC’s Knight Inlet are viewing bears on the beach. The salmon do not arrive until mid-august so the grizzly mothers and cubs spend their days eating sedge grass or in this case turning rocks on the beach looking for protein. This is the “cub time of the year” born in the winter they are only a few months old and stay close to mom.
