An Incredible Encounter with Bigg’s (Transient) Killer Whales in the Strait of Georgia – 26/8/15

One of the most incredible encounters of the season tonight! 16 animals in total including T100’s, T101’s, T137’s, T36B’s and T36 in the Strait of Georgia. Amazing social behaviour, insane vocals above and below the surface, aerial displays, crazy interactions……the whole nine!  They had a “motor boat” theme going and a bunch of them kept blowing bubbles at the surface…not enough words to describe the encounter.

Two of my favourite whales. T102 on the right, a full grown 31 year old bull and on his left is the quirky 13 year old, T137A. It really gives you an idea of the size difference between an adult male and sprouting male.
