Humpback Whale in Haro Strait! May 23rd, 2013

Here are a few images from today's encounter with a Humpback Whale in Haro Strait! This articular Humpback Whale BCY0324 is known as "Big Mama" and was the first Humpback Whale sighted back in the Salish Sea 14 years ago. Humpback Whales had been wiped out of the area by the Whaling Stations in the area. We are now seeing an increasing number of Humpback Whales returning to the Salish Sea:) We also saw Harbor Seals, Harbor Porpoise and several Bald Eagles, including one causing havoc at the Chain Islets!!!
