May 3rd, Minke Whale and Porpoise.

Today we watched a Minke Whale and a large number of Harbor Porpoise. Our vessel headed East after recieving reports of a large number of Harbor Porpoise being seen in Haro Strait.

As our vessel neared Discovery Island not only did they find the Harbor Porpoise but also a Minke Whale. These intriguing Baleen Whales are attracted to the area by small fish and plankton that they then filter feed through their Baleen plates.
