    Protecting The Whales That We Love

    You won’t find a group of people who appreciate and respect Vancouver Island’s marine wildlife more than the crew at Orca Sprit Adventures, which is why we are a proud proponent of the Pacific Whale Watch Association guidelines for responsible whale watching. And a portion of all whale watching adventure proceeds goes to support local marine research initiatives.

Super Pod!

Super Pod!
Working in the marine industry on the west coast of Vancouver Island is filled with so much beauty and daily excitement.   Most days we have absolutely gorgeous weather, we see wildlife in abundance and have an amazing backdrop that is the Salish Sea.  As naturalists out there every day, we are so fortunate to see this backdrop, wildlife and whales all the time!  Some say we may get sick of it after a while... Not a chance! There is nothing like the feeling of coming on scene with Southern Resident Killer Whales: An endangered species, Apex Predator and a Keystone Species to our ecosystem. So majestic and magnificent, it takes our breath away every time.  
 
IMG 6020But what is it that tops it all?  What really gets our hearts pumping and toes tapping? One word that all Naturalists on the water live for:  SUPERPOD!  This is the term for when all three pods of the Southern Resident Killer Whale Community come together to play, mate and forage.  Just imagine witnessing this behavior with 80 Orcas all together!  Some breaching, some tail slapping, it's like a synchronized "Orca-stra" out there.  July 2nd marked the return of all three pods to the Salish Sea and you better believe we were there to witness!
