September 27th – 28th

So many whales the past few days! So many Orcas including a 4 day old calf! Humpbacks, Steller Sea Lions, Pacific White Sided Dolphins, Harbour Porpoise and Harbour Seals made spectacular appearances as well! There was no Grizzly Expedition on Sep 27th, however guests on the 28th were pleased as they saw some beautiful Grizzlies along with a mother and cub next to a Bald Eagle on the rivers edge! Not only did they see bears and Eagles on the Grizzly Expedition, they were super lucky and spotted Humpback whales, Transient Orcas (including the calf), Dalls Porpoise, Steller Sealions and Harbour Seals on the way up to the Bute Inlet! Wow!
