Another amazing weekend of sightings here in the Discovery Islands! Nine Humpback Whales were spotted in total over the last three days, giving us the honour of seeing more breaching, fluking, and powerful fin slaps. One of the whales, Chinook, was first seen in the Campbell River area in 2015 and is frequently sighted on our trips. Steller Sea Lions and Pacific Harbour Seals could be seen hauled out on rocks and swimming with each other near the shores. Groups of Pacific White Sided Dolphins were enjoying the waves made by the boat. A special, and never before seen in Campbell River, treat this weekend was when one of our trips was lucky enough to see a Sea Otter! These furry creatures are typically found on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
