August 11-13th

Another superb weekend here for Discovery Marine Safaris and our guests! Humpbacks could be seen on every trip the past few days, all through the Discovery Islands. Bald Eagles and Pacific Harbour Seals could be spotted at our stops a little closer to shore. And a Steller Sea Lion was seen smashing a salmon against the rocks and defending it from hungry Seagulls until he could eat it himself!

August 7-8th

High numbers of Humpback Whales have been seen all through the Discovery Islands, with tours getting to see breaching, pectoral fin slapping, and tail flukes! Pacific White Sided Dolphins were spotted leaping through the waves at the bow of our boat. And a group of Biggs or Transient (mammal-eating) Killer Whales were observed in Okisollo Channel and Hole In The Wall.

Humpback Whale sightings have been high in numbers still with lots of surface activity for our guests to witness! Multiple groups of Transient (mammal-eating) Killer Whales have been spotted over the weekend, hunting and travelling in the Salish Sea. Another Sea Otter has also been spotted in our area and is making our naturalists jump with excitement over this furry creature!

Humpbacks Abound

August has brought more warm weather to our area. Our guests have been eager to get out on the water to beat the heat.  Once out on the water we forget about the heat and bask in the amazement of watching the amazing Humpback Whales. The sightings have been wonderful and the surface activity we have been witnessing has been like nothing we have seen in previous years. There are still some Steller Sea Lions hanging out on Mittlenatch along with many Pacific Harbour Seals. Each day we are excited to see what the day will bring.

Summer of Sunshine and Whales

The past weekend was nothing less that spectacular on the water. We had encounters with Transient (Mammal Eating) Killer Whales as well as daily viewing of the local humpbacks. The Humpback activity has been beyond anything we have seen before. Record numbers of whales with lots of surface activity. We also fit in a historic tour to Lund and Desolation Sound. The sunshine keeps coming and the whales and guests are here to enjoy it.

It’s like Humpback City here in the Discovery Islands! Dozens of whales have been seen over the last few days, giving our guests amazing views of their powerful flukes.
