Here are just a few images from this evenings encounter with Jpod and Dalls Porpoise, it was another amazing evening on the water. JPod was spread out over a large area tonight but we managed to encounter at least 12 members of Jpod.

There was also a large amount of Dalls Porpoise in Haro Strait that came to investigate our two vessels, Fastcat and Supercat, much to the delight of our passengers.

At Great Chain we also saw a Bald Eagle land on the Cormorant nest, much to the constanation of the many Cormorants and Seagulls nesting on the island. One brave Crow made numerous high speed passes of the Eagle trying to distract the Eagle!

We took our passengers for a tour of Victoria Inner Harbour at the end of our trip and many agreed that it is a most beautiful harbour.
