Captain’s Log: October 10th 2017

Hi, my name is Sam Plumley. I’ve been working with Tofino Whale Watching for 9 years. I love my job. Everyday on the water brings a new experience, of which I try to photo and capture it as best I can. This year was a great year for grey whales. We also saw killer whales and humpback whales. We saw many sea otters, seals, sea lions, and various sea birds like eagles, oyster catchers, tufted puffins, and acculets. We had lots of great days on the water and many visitors from all over the world. My favourite trip this year we saw a sea otter eating an urchin. For many years now I’ve wanted to see an otter eating urchin. Almost every trip there is at least one animal that puts on a great show and shows us how beautiful mother nature can be.
