June 20th AM - Morning with Transient Orcas & a Humpback!

June 20th AM – Morning with Transient Orcas and a Humpback Whale!

Whale Watching in BC
TO63 “Chainsaw”
This morning we headed out west and had a wonderful morning encounter with a large group of Transient Orcas including an old friend, TO63 “Chainsaw”! TO63 was born in 1978 and earned the nickname “Chainsaw” due to his unique dorsal fin. Other Orcas identified in the group included TO49C, TO65, TO65B and several other Orcas! We also encountered a Humpback Whale west of Race Rocks, which was a real bonus for our passengers today. It was a great way to start the day, sun, calm seas and lots of Whales :) At Race Rocks we also saw a large amount of nervous looking Harbor Seals and who can blame them for looking nervous with so many Transient Orcas nearby!
