Once in a lifetime!
On September 24th, close to Lewis Channel, northeast of Campbell River I experienced something incredible, something unforgettable and something that I simply can’t put words to. The experience will resonate with me for the rest of my life. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was standing near the bow of the boat, with guide Nick Templeman from Campbell River Whale & Bear Excursions and his trusted companion, Yukon – #chiefwhalespotter.
The T090’s and T002C’s all surfaced directly in front of us and they stayed there watching. This biological phenomenon is known as “logging.” They stayed in position for what felt like an eternity but surely it lasted for at least 2 minutes. Time just seemed to stop. T002C1, the big male, commonly referred to as Rocky then swam directly in front of me with the rest of the pod in tow.
Afterwards, Nick explained to me that in all of his time on the water guiding, more than 25 years that he has never seen or heard of anything like this before.
