Spring has arrived, or has it! Mother nature is consistent in the return of abundant wildlife to our coast, the weather is another issue..rain, hail, sun, snow.

This is what happens when the herring spawn. Our sea’s, coastline and skies explode with life. On today’s tour we had sightings of at least 15 Gray whales within a 3 mile area off Salomon Beach, hundreds of Surf Scoters, Humpback whales, Eagles, Sea lions and more.

As we sat with our engine off near Salmon Beach this curious Gray Whale came right up to the Blackfish. Took a look at our passengers from Queensland Australia and the skipper then dove under the boat.
Andy was out for a paddel he also experienced this magical encounter.
