A First Encounter with Pacific White-Sided Dolphins! – 26/10/18

We set out onto the Strait of Georgia on a beautiful October day, on the lookout for some humpback whales. Though there had been many nearby in recent weeks, that day they proved quite elusive that day. Then, we heard an unusual report: a pod of Pacific White-Sided Dolphins had been riding the wake of a ferry nearby!

When we found them, we couldn’t believe how lucky we were!

All alone, with a pod of maybe 100, playing in our wake!

It was amazing watching them surf and breach next to us. It truly seems like they were doing it just to have fun! In 4 years, it was my first encounter with these guys. Such a spectacular day, which I will never forget.
