Boats and Orca's

Boats and Orca’s

I have lived above Departure Bay for about 20 years. This is the first time I have seen Orca’s in the Bay. I know that they have been here a couple of times before – but never have I seen them. I was so stoked! Amazing!

There were four of them. One was much larger than the other three.  They were very laid back – spent a lot of time under water – just came up for air as necessary.

There were quite a few boats rushing out to see and track them. Harbour Patrol came out as well – to make sure that the boats wouldn’t get too close!

A few ducks were around as well.

A few Barrow’s Goldeneye ducks were around as well.

I took a great many pictures, but mostly got fins.  I just had to share the experience.

Happy Viewing
