The humpback whales were swimming around Galiano Island, while a lone male orca was solo swimming around Active Pass.

Take a look for yourself:


“WHALES!!! Humpbacks around Galiano Island and a lone male Orca solo swimming around Active Pass” reads the Instagram caption.

“Can’t believe we’ve been in Vancouver for almost 7 years and had never done a whale watch”.

Just last month, a pod of orcas were spotted swimming near the waters of Stanley Park.
