|Momma and baby swimming along. in the Strait of Juan de Fuca|
A friend of ours who is a videographer was shooting a commercial gave us a call because he needed more people for the boat. Whale watching off the Coast of Vancouver Island in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. We had a magical afternoon and must have seen at least 80 Orca whales. I was thrilled! We were very fortunate when we went out because there was a 'super pod' in the area and it was comprised of several different Orca pods swimming in the strait. We were out there for at least 6 hours and I wished it would never end. The guide was amazing, he had a a background in marine biology and he could tell you anything and everything you could ever want to know about Orcas. He could name the whale by the shape of their fins and identify which pod they were from. He just seemed to know where they were going to pop up and he would cut the motor so they were not disturbed by us or the engine noise. It was a fabulous afternoon and I will treasure the memories always.
