May 14th 2010

Good morning from the Float House at Discovery Harbour Marina

Yesterday flet like summer and the Whales arrived on cue.

Some of the Southern Resident Orca spend the winter on the north coast and each spring we look forward to seeing them on their journey back down the Inside Passage to the Victoria area. Yesterday the K and L pods arrived in Campbell River about 12 noon about 2 weeks earlier than expected and about 1 month earlier than last year.

The picture attached shows the group moving quickly through Seymour Narrows just north of Campbell River. When the Orca passed the southern tip of Quadra Island they began to breech and vocalize as if they could sense their final destination, some 200 km to the south.

The Orca arrival was also a day early for us as we celebrate our Grand Opening this weekend, Saturday May 15th and Sunday the 16th. Bring the family and friends as the adjacent Mall celebrates "Pirate Days". Hot Dogs, refreshments and free Zodiac rides from 11 am to 3 pm.

The summer is closing in quickly. Come and enjoy the beauty of the Islands and coastal shoreline.

Looking forward to a great sunny weekend
