West Coast Whale Watching

Time for a second trip to the West Coast, previously with students, this time with family.  We started our trip in Victoria and took a whale watching tour with "Prince of Whales" on Canada Day.  We had great luck with our trip - Orcas ("Killer Whales") were right outside the Victoria Harbour.  There was a second group near San Juan Island and, on our return trip, we found the first pod again, this time breaching right out of the water.

Oh yeah, and we saw some birds too, including Rhinoceros Auklet, Pigeon Guillemot, Pelagic Cormorant, Common Murre, and of course, Bald Eagle.
