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.
