See them all here; Breaching Humpbacks by Clint

On Oct 27, guest Clint captured one of the most spectacular images of a humpback I have ever seen! Not only have I missed out on a breaching humpback whale but 2 of them, jumping out of the air like an orchestra! BLESSED!

More beautiful captures by our Guest Marie. As you can see from the photos, humpback whales are quite active lately. What a blessing to witness such a spectacle. Thank you for sharing as I am land locked in concrete jungle - TORONTO!

Ocean Magic Saturday Trip on Oct 13, 2007.

"Lucky Saturday. We headed out into the fog and turned east to San Juan Island, looking for J Pod. Shamus and Brad found the whales going south in small groups. The fog dissipated and the sun warmed us all as we enjoyed several nice passes. Just a beautiful day on the water; the sun, whales and the wonderful scenery !!"

Here are a couple of the last whale encountered on a magical trip late Sat afternoon Oct 13th. It was a gloriously calm, peaceful and sunny afternoon. Flat calm seas and no wind made the ride in a zodiac all the more appealing. Beemer was at the helm and gave us great opportunities to see the wildlife along the way. Two Minke whales and J Pod were observed along with fleeting appearances from Harbour and Dall's Porpoises, during the ride to San Juan Island. The big boys , the Steller Sea Lions were hauled out on Whale Rock. The variety of sea and bird life in the late afternoon sun, was pure enjoyment.
