Lpod / Sooke

Today we ran out the west side of Vancouver Island past Otter Point (Sooke) to look for Lpod who was steadily traveling west. When we found them, we saw multiple breaches, tail lobbing, some milling about, and porpoising. The group was spread out a bit however was quite active. On our way home we stopped in at Race Rocks where we saw Stellar Sea Lions resting on the rocks. What an incredible journey today was. I'd asked researcher Ron Bates if all of Lpod had returned and he had said yes along with a new calf!
