The whale watching safaris from Grizzly Bear Lodge has a good chance of finding resident orca or killer whales. The resident orca is the fish eaters while the transient orca are the male eaters and are less common in the summer. This photo demonstrates the difference in size of the dorsal fins between a male and female orca. The males fin can be up to two meters (six feet) while the females are often less than half the height.
Humpback Trying to Shake Off Dolphins
This is a picture of the Humpback Whale known as Guardian breeching in Queen Charlotte Strait. What you can’t tell from the picture is that there is a group of Pacific White Sided Dolphins harassing her. Both dolphins and Sea Lions have been know to pester Humpbacks and Resident (fish eating) Orca. Why they do this is still up for debate. She did several breeches and tail slaps in an effort to shake the annoying dolphins.Visit our Blog
