Minke Whales and Humpback Whales! July 5th, 2008.

Tufted Puffin!

Above and below, a young Minke Whale.

Today we had more amazing encounters with Minke Whales and Humpback Whales. In the East near Hein Bank we encountered 2 possibly 3 Minke Whales. To the West we encountered 2 Humpback Whales in close proximity with another Humpback further to the south.

We had chance to visit Race Rocks on our way home in the evening and saw a Mother and Pup harbor Seal! I also managed to get a picture of a Tufted Puffin, a sight that is always a delight and one that Ron Bates, MMRG, will be very envious of;)

On our way home yet another stunning Sunset greeted our arrival back at Victoria, the perfect end to an unforgettable day!
