Killer Whales, Humpback whales, stellar sea lion ..... you name it

May 21, 2015  •  1 Comment

May long weekend is usually the first weekend people get out of their house and are ready to start the summer activities. Well, we got out of our house, jumped into the boat and cruised the Johnstone Strait to get a glimpse of the wildlife after the winter. The strait is waking up slowly, the marine mammals are coming back up north to join their summer eating grounds. 

The weather was not the best but Eh !!! it doesn't really matter !!

We had the pleasure to see  a Humpback whale, 

 
 

 a stellar sea lion feeding on a salmon, and another one swallowing its lunch.

 


3 transient killer whales hunting for food,
 

 

A ball of bait came up the strait and here comes the "Eagle Explosion". Tens of bald eagle, seagulls and ducks feeding on this welcomed meal. They were screaming, fighting, eating, diving. What a treat for us. 

 


 

 


 

 

The beauty of living on Vancouver Island is : whatever the weather, nature always has surprises for whoever takes the time to open their eyes.
