Humpback Whales

Today, we spent the day with Humpback whales. We saw multiple whales on both our afternoon and evening trips. There were visible rake marks on one of the whales from the evening trip. Rake marks(as seen above) are a typical indication of orca predation.

After spending some time with the Humpbacks, we went to Race Rocks Ecological Reserve to see Harbour seals, sea lions, a sea otter, and Northern elephant seals.
