Breathtaking encounter with Humpback Whales, Lags & Orcas and the Gray Whale! Sept 9th, 2010
Here are some amazing pictures by Ron Bates of Marine Mammal Research Group (MMRG) from our breathtaking encounter with Humpback Whales, Lags (Pacific White Sided Dolphins) & Orcas and Gray Whale!
It is very rare to see Pacific White Sided Dolphins off Victoria and so we were thrilled when we found at least 12 a few miles south of Victoria! As if that was not enough we also saw 2 Humpback Whales south of Constance Bank and members of J & L-pod off Discovery Island in the morning and off San Juan in the afternoon! During our afternoon tour we also encountered the Gray Whale, just off Discovery Island.
