REPORT FROM THE SHIP

Here is an update we received via satellite from the ship. The crew and 8 guests are on a sailing cruise along the entire B.C. coast, from Prince Rupert to Comox, B.C.

This report was sent from Johnstone Strait, where the Maple Leaf and her passengers were one of the first ships to see the returning northern resident orcas this year. Not to mention a host of other cetaceans!

“We’re just now travelling west of Naka Creek with a group of 5-6.  No id’s yet though.  Nice spyhop and a drive-by from a big male!

Blackfish Sound was a treat this morning for breakfast: breaching humpbacks, Dall’s propoises, and harbour porpoises.”
