Orcas in the Harbour!!

West Coast Aquatic Safaris had the pleasure today of viewing three Orcas (killer whales) in the Tofino harbour!! They were spotted just outside our local marine fuel station. It's always super exciting to see Killer Whales in Tofino as they aren't resident, but do frequent our waters. We have been seeing Gray Whales really frequently lately also, and are getting really excited for Whale Fest. It's Tofino's way of welcoming the whales back to their feeding grounds after having spent the winter breeding in Baja, Mexico. We had a bit of crazy weather in Tofino, starting off with snow, and then hale, and now we are lucky enough to have a bit of sun poking through.
