The seas have been quite dramatic lately and as a result WASCO has been getting out to some different areas. Part of venturing into different areas means seeing things that we don't see in our everyday trips. Today Jeff and our group passed around Meares Island they had the opportunity to see roughly 300 Stellar Sea Lions resting on the rocks and taking cover from the estimated 10m swell that we had today. A little further along Meares the group was treated to a Grey Wolf out on the beach having a look at passers by.

West Coast Aquatic Safaris has a photo of the week award, and the photo which I have added today was from our first trip this season. On February 26, this photo of an adult Orca and her calf was taken just out from Mackenzie Beach with one of the local hotels in the background. I like this photo because it was submitted by a mother and her son out for their first Whale watch, it was our first trip of the year and mostly, because it shows that you don't have to go far to see something many people will never see in their life. Sometimes you just need a different perspective. On this day in February WASCO's flying bridge which is 10' above sea level offered just that. Let the friendly staff and very knowledgeable guides help create a special moment for you or your family. Welcome aboard and don't forget your camera.
