West Coast Aquatic Safaris would like to thank Claire Crawley for her amazing photos of the black bears while out on WASCO. She submitted some amazing photos and of course you can see the winning photo on our home page or by clicking here. Our bear watches are a great way for our guests to get up close with the black bears in the area. We plan our bear watches for low tide. The reason for the low tide is that the bears usually come out to the shoreline to look for crabs under the rocks so it gives our guests a chance to see these bears from our boat WASCO.
The whales have been out quite a bit in the past few days. The grays are very active feeding lately. The humpbacks have been seen and yesterday quite a few were spotted! Orcas were rumoured to be in our waters early this morning. There was as many as 10 spotted however they had made their way further off shore by the time the first whale watches had gotten out and haven’t been seen since. Still lots of wildlife to see while out on our trips.
