We knew where the whales were this afternoon, they were feeding and forging on the west side of San Juan Island, flat water conditions with a little bit of overcast skies and some drizzle for us this afternoon. The whale show was relatively challenging at the beginning because they were so spread out and very close to shore, but we made all kinds of cool additional stops at the beginning of the trip. We had tons of harbour seals hauled up on the rocks and playing in the water in Oak Bay, a great bald eagle show, we were able to get to within 30 yards of a fully grown female bald eagle, it was a spectacular vision on Todd Rock, the Starboard Day Beacon. We also had Harlequin Ducks, Pigeon Guillemots, Rhinoceros Auklet, Common Muir a couple of feeding frenzies with the birds actively feeding on what appeared to be little bait fish. That was all before we went to the whales where again we had feeding whales, and by the end they had all grouped up together and were socializing on the surface very slowly, excellent visuals, perfect photo opportunities. It really was quite a special moment at the end just before we had to head home and before the rain started. We did get a bit wet coming home but we had piping hot chocolate waiting for us at the dock. Everybody was pretty happy.
