Gray whales in the harbor!

We got a very special visit today! Just as Keith was preparing WASCO to go out on a whale watch trip we saw two gray whales blow! It is very rare for these whales to pass through the harbor and everyone was very excited to see this. West Coast Aquatic Safaris staff Ellie and Eva waited at the end of the dock in the hopes of another sighting but no luck. The gray whales had continued on their journey.

West Coast Aquatic Safaris had a successful bear watch this morning as well. The black bears were out looking for crab this morning turning over all the rocks during low tide.

It has been a busy Easter weekend with lots of whales, bears and other wildlife here in Tofino. Everyone at West Coast Aquatic Safaris is looking forward to the summer season and more whales, bears, hot springs and wildlife!
