It was an exciting trip this morning for Keith and West Coast Aquatic Safaris friends. Keith took WASCO out to see the orcas that had been spotted heading towards Tofino from Ucluelet. Keith caught up with the orcas just off of the lighthouse and was not disappointed. There were four in total including one calve.
A sea lion nearby realized that these killer whales were in the waters and decided it was time to get out of the water. It made numerous attempts to hop aboard WASCO in order to stay away from the orcas. Keith and guests were very surprised by this and Keith decided it was time to keep on moving. Having a sea lion on board is very dangerous and he did not look like he was going to give up on trying to get on. So Keith and guests headed back towards Tofino after getting a great show of orcas and a surprise drop in from a sea lion!
