Today I awoke to hear the sad news of people losing their lives while out Whale Watching in British Columbia. How tragic and unfortunate.
A few months ago I got the opportunity while visiting Victoria BC to go Whale Watching. It was an exhilarating experience, and I remember thinking that even if we didn’t see any whales I still would have enjoyed the experience. I loved the speed of the boat and the freshness of the wind on my face. It was an absolutely wonderful day spent in nature.
On that particular day we would see four different types of Whales, so the Naturalist on board our boat deemed it to be a very successful outing, and it was.
Not only did we see Whales, but we saw Eagles, Seals and other wildlife.
So again so sad to hear of the boat sinking in Tofino BC with 5 dead and 1 missing.
This is the boat that we traveled on. We saw four types of whales that day the Minky Whale, Humpback Whale the Killer Whale and I forget the name of the fourth one.
