Whale Tales – In Pursuit of Orcas and Minkes

By Captain Ken Rea

A challenging day to see ORCA WHALES. I left the dock and started searching for the T60s that were ween off Lime Kiln State Park but they continued southwest (away from the island). By the time I reached the US/Canadian border, a report came in that they were in Oak Bay (near Victoria BC).

Later, on my second tour while viewing a MINKE WHALE, I learned they had come back into USAA waters. We made our way to them and spent the rest of the tour watching them.

Once I heard they had re-entered the San Juan Channel, I called my morning guests and invited them to go see the ORCAs that were now close by the harbor.
