Mom and pup!

It has been a great day with no rain today here in Tofino. West Coast Aquatic Safaris has been busy with lots of wildlife sightings today. Our two morning bear watches were successful with the early morning trip finding three black bears and the 9:30 trip getting a good long look at one black bear who didn't mind WASCO and guests stopping by.

The whale watches have been eventful today with gray whales and humpback whales being spotted. A special treat for our driver Jeff and our guests today was our first sighting of a mom sea otter and her pup. This is the first one Jeff has seen this season! Mom had her pup on her belly as she swam around on her back. It was great to see and our guests were very excited when they got back in. We are hoping for the clouds to part for our evening whale watch. It is a great way to see the sunset and whales all in one great trip!
