Victor T61 in Oak Bay

victor close

Today we departed in light rain. We had set out to find Jpod. On the way over to San Juan Island we found many Harbour Porpoise milling about. We pressed on however did not find Jpod but got word that there was a transient killer whale making a kill (harbour seal) in Oak Bay, so around we turned. When we arrived, we found Victor - T61 milling about. He seemed rather relaxed. He showed us his pectoral fins and tail flukes a few times before milling around the Chain Islands. When we left him, he seemed to be travelling out into the Juan De Fuca Strait, just infront of Trial Island. It was an exciting trip to say the least. It's not very often we get to see individuals like T61, and this was my first time.
