Harold Bailey from the UK who was with us the first week of September, provided the comment and picture “I feel lucky tonight”. Whale watching safari trips from the lodge include more than humpback whales and orca. The water-ways between Vancouver Island and the BC mainland abound in marine based wildlife: eagles, large variety of ducks and water fowl, white-sided dolphins, dall’s porpoise, harbour porpoise, harbour seals and of course stellar sea lions. A safari trip without viewing a majority of these is not considered a good day.
Killer Whale Watching
The killer whales / orca along the west coast of North America are identified by the shape and size of their dorsal fin and the saddlepatch located by the fin. Other distinguishing marks are also a great help especially the notch located in A72’s fin. I have found over the years that our guests are less interested in “who” they are watching and more interested in “that” are watching killer whales.
