Breaching humpback whales may occur two or three times a week but pictures are much rarer maybe once or twice a summer. In the area of Bold Head in Blackfish Sound near Telegraph Cove on Vancouver Island there are quite a few humpback whales. It is common to see six to ten whales each safari as the area has an abundance of herring, which is one of the whale’s main foods. The humpback whales arrive in late May to early June and remain in the area through October.
Yes we did find the killer whales and spent an hour or so with them as they moved through Blackfish Sound. The guest photos from the day were much better than mine. I know this because it is part of the day that photographs are compared once all guest return to the lodge. In my defence I am more interested in getting photo that make for a good blog posting than the ideal photo to show friends (I have enough of those).Visit our Blog
