Victoria Whale Watching Report: Minke Whale, Juvenile Bald Eagles & More
May 28, 2019
Captain Jordan had decided to shake things up and head on an adventure east out of the Harbour today.
While a fellow whale watching company headed along the shoreline northbound, we took a route more towards the middle of the Strait.
With all eyes onboard scanning for wildlife, we were surprised to find ….
a minke whale!
Usually, minke whales can be shy and take longer dives but today we were excited to see the minke whale feeding. While watching the lone minke, views of the full rostrum and peeks of baleen were seen as he/she surfaced every 5-6 minutes.
On our way back towards Victoria we toured through a passage west of Discovery island called Chain to view harbour seals, a couple of juvenile eagles, cormorants, pigeon guillemots, and many seagulls.
