Killer Queens

Our crossing on the BC Ferries service from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay this lunchtime had a naturalist on board and as if by magic just before she did her bit a pod of 15+ Killer Whale, including a big bull and a calf were spotted of the port side of the boat. Always a bit distant but plenty of breaching and tail-slapping action almost brought tears of joy to my eyes.

They were just off Mayne Island in the Gulf Islands group and heading out of Active Straight near Lighthouse Point.

Fantastic animals…
