On Wednesday , June 15 we took the 1:00 pm Stubbs Island Whale Watching Tour aboard the “Lukwa” which is a sleek 49 passenger aluminum tour boat geared for whale watching. It turns out that this company was B.C.'s first whale watching company and began operating in 1980. Since then they have been actively involved in promoting responsible wildlife viewing and helped create the Ecological Reserve in Robson Bight which is critical habitat for orcas also known as killer whales.

|We saw many seals hauled out on rocks|
|We saw humpbacks in scenic Blackfish Sound|
|The humpbacks would feed at the surface and then dive periodically|
|Jackie did a end of trip talk at the front of the boat|
