John Harrison's last week of work, we finally took him up on his offer of a complimentary whale watching tour. After work one night we headed to Auke bay for a cruise out to the Orca Point Lodge on Colt island for dinner, beach combing and touch tank viewing.
The salmon bake dinner was excellent. After dinner we headed out to do some whale watching. We saw a calf, cow, escort whale and Spot, the local non-migratory, non-reproducing whale.
After a bit of that, we stopped at hump island to see some seals reclining on the beach. We've seen plenty of sea lions hauled out in places, but never seals on a beach. It was a beautiful evening and totally worth the price. :)
