    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.

    Protecting Whales' Future


An Abundant April!

An Abundant April!

sealionsWhat an amazing start to spring it has been!  With sightings reports every day, there has been so much excitement on the water!  All throughout the Salish Sea has shown an abundance of marine wildlife from Transient and even Resident Orcas to a humpback sighting and some Greys!  We've seen Staller and California Sea Lions, Harbour seals, Elephant Seals, Bald Eagles, Cormorants, and a plethora of other sea birds, not to mention the warm weather and sunshine didn’t hurt either!

Grey Whale April 10thWe’ve had sightings of some “lost” Grey Whales within the Southern Gulf islands and Puget Sound, likely finding food sources on their migration north.  Some Transient Orcas have also taken notice and have been caught taunting a few of their young.  So far no reports of any attacks.

This program was put on by some wonderful instructors and some very informative guest speakers. We’re excited to be using some new education material in our Marine Education Center this summer.
