Whale Report: September 3, 2019 PM: Surprise sightings! Bigg’s Killer whales and a Humpback Whale!

We had a pretty amazing day on the Western Prince on 9/3. We ended up having 3 encounters that day with two of them unexpected. We encountered T60’s, T59 & T2B up by Salt Spring Island. They were breaching when we first got there, then tail slapped their way along the shoreline to the delight of many campers. On the way home another boat let us know about a humpback nearby – it was Frankenstein! And, all of a sudden the T37A’s popped up right by the Humpback. Add to that amazing lighting and cloudscapes in every direction! This was one beautiful day!
