Always amazing to witness - playing dolphins. We have seen some large pods this season, the biggest was estimated around 500 - 700 dolphins. The energy around it is simply breathtaking, seemed like the whole ocean is boiling.

You know that moment when you’re in the middle of dense fog over water, and it suddenly lifts up giving way to epic scenery. Some believe Herons do that. . #blueheron #outdoors

Golden Autumn! I love this time of the year, mid-October, especially when the weather is like it is right now: warm during the day, cold at night, no wind and not a ripple on the water, no boats beside some First Nations fishing boats, pure magic. Yup, this is what I do when I have time, even after being out there every single day during the summer season. I love what I do. What a peaceful day in Blackfish Sound, we (a friend from Switzerland and myself), turned the engine off for hours and just drifted with super relaxed humpback whales, dolphins and sea lions. We even heard the humpback whales signing via the hydrophone on board. I can't wait to find the time to get into my archive/portfolio and share some of those magic days with you we had this year. Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) tail fluke splashing during a late autumn afternoon in Blackfish Sound, Hanson Island, off Vancouver Island, First Nations Territory, British Columbia, Canada. ------------ #humpbackwhale #humpbackwhales #whales #baleenwhale #whalewatchingtour #whalewatching #whaleseason #whalefluke #phototour #phototours #whalesinthewild #whalefluke #explorebc #ecotours #broughtonarchipelago #viphototours #vancouverislandbc #vancouverislandphotographer #wildlifewatching #whalelover #wildlifephotos #britishcolumbia #animalkindom #natureshotz #firstnationsterritory #marvelouz_animals #animalelite #featured_wildlife @rolfhickerphototours⠀ @rolfhickerphotography⠀ @theartistspoint

Sea lions are totally awesome right now. They are super playful and curious. Loving it. Did a video today, hopefully, I can post it tomorrow.

It was our last official day of whale watching today; and it was gorgeous out there. We saw SO many humpbacks that we just don't know where to look. (Our favourite problem aboard the Naiad Explorer!) Our sighted humpbacks today included Argonaut, Inukshuk, Freckles, and Pulteney, and many many more. Lunge feeding, trap feeding, breaching... And so many birds out there! It was a spectacular way to officially end our season. As Captain Bill says... We've now reached the time of year when there are more whales than people in our back yard. Stay tuned everyone, and hope to see you out on the water soon. . . . All photos taken with a telephoto lens and cropped for spacing; taken from 200+ m from all wildlife.

The A42s have moved back north with their new baby! Repost from @mackaywhalewatching . "Today was our first look at the new addition to the family. And they're all looking wonderful! A79 is doing a really wonderful job as a first time mum - she is constantly close by and watching her little one. The babies had a great time playing while the two families fished for chum; and we're hoping that all their playful behaviour is an indication that they are healthy and eating well." . 📸 by @mlknierim . #mackaywhalewatching #whales #whalewatching #killerwhale #orca #blackfish #northernresidents #broughtonarchipelago #wild #nature #naturephotography #thisisportmcneill #explorenorthisland #explorebc #beautifulBC #vancouverislandnorth #vancouverislandguide #westcoast #northisland #natgeo #natgeowild #nationalgeographic #britishcolumbia

What a special day out there on the big ocean... We were able to hang out with tons of humpbacks (lunge feeding everywhere!) and northern sea lions... But it was the A42s and A34s that really stole hearts today. Especially the tiny and very new baby in the A42s! This new baby has been documented since late this summer; but as the A42s were down near Campbell River following the calf's birth... Today was our first look at the new addition to the family. And they're all looking wonderful! A79 is doing a really wonderful job as a first time mum - she is constantly close by and watching her little one. The babies had a great time playing while the two families fished for chum; and we're hoping that all their playful behaviour is an indication that they are healthy and eating well. It's always a wonderful sight; watching fishing whales and busy birds everywhere you look. . . . All photos taken with a telephoto lens and cropped for spacing; taken from 200+ m from all wildlife.

My heart is on the islands ♥️ I would looove to go shoot pictures of mushrooms here in the city but I find more homeless encampments and needles than I do fungis and fungis are the only fun guys in the woods I'm looking for. I should go to Stanley Park I'm sure it's better than the inner city parks 🤔 Where's your fave Vancouver Park? . . . . #VancouverBC #vancouverisland #westcoast #PacificNorthWest #wonderlust #isolated #departedoutdoors #gotakeahike #mushrooms #fungi #mushroomseason #forest #wild #Woods #britishcolumbia #broughtonarchipelago #alertbay #alertbayecologicalpark #takemehome #vancity

"Sitting in the Morning Sun" (11x14 - Oil on Birch Panel) was painted this summer during our sailing trip in August. As you may remember, my husband and I spend a month on our sailboat cruising around the Broughtons and Desolation Sound. Many nights, we would drop anchor in quiet bays without any other boats in sight. These coves are usually small and protected with beautiful sights to paint. Many times, the views would be quite closed in, and in the end, I ended up focusing on small, intimate views of several points or islets which didn't include any part of the sky which was different form the landscapes I usually paint. Can you guess what we were listening to as I painted??? Love that song!!. Available in the landscapes page in my website, link in profile! . . Pinté "Sentados al Sol de la Mañana" (óleo, 28x36cm) este verano durante nuestro viaje en el velero en agosto. Como pueden recordar tal vez, mi esposo y yo pasamos un mes navegando por las Broughtons y Desolation Sound. Muchas noches tirábamos el ancla en bahías muy tranquilas en las que no había ningún otro velero. Éstas bahías son normalmente muy pequeñas y protegidas con vistas hermosas para pintar. Muchas veces estas vistas eran bastante cerradas y al final terminé enfocándome en vistas muy íntimas de islotes sin incluir nada de cielo. Pueden adivinar qué canción estaba escuchando mientras pintaba? Me encanta esa canción! Disponible en la página de Paisajes de mi sitio, link en perfil! . .

Humpback Whale "Pisa" A high tail fluke out of the water usually indicates a longer, deeper dive. In these pictures you can also see what seems like whale poo in the water just below the fluke and a number of barnacles growing just behind the whale's blow hole . . #Humpback #HumpbackWhale #Whale #Cetacean #Whalegram #WhaleTales #SaveTheWhales #SwimFree #WestCoast #VancouverIsland #ShareTheCoast #BroughtonArchipelago #SalishSea #JohnstoneStrait #MarineLife #OceanLife #Nature #Naturalist #OneOcean #Conservation #Ocean #OceanAdvocate #MarineBiology #PNW #Photography #WildLifePhotography #WhaleWatching #EcoTourism #WhaleWise #SeeABlowGoSlow

I was very happy to see a very playful I76 a couple weeks ago. Orca usually only take the time to be very social with other groups and play when they're getting enough to eat. This was a good day with many playful members of the I15 families and the A34s. I hope they all stay fat and healthy this winter 🐟🐬❤ . . #Orca #KillerWhale #Blackfish #Cetacean #Whale #Dolphin #Whalegram #WhaleTales #NRKW #ResidentOrca #SwimFree #WestCoast #VancouverIsland #ShareTheCoast #TurningTheTide #WildSalmon #BluePlanet #Animals #WildLife #MarineLife #OceanLife #Conservation #Nature #PNW #Vancouver #SalishSea #BroughtonArchipelago #Canada #BC #SaveTheWhales

Chris Guinchard - Salmon Coast Feild Station - Broughton Archipelago, BC. - Legacy Part 08. - Chris is one of two Station Coordinators of the facility he describes as a kind of hotel for research scientists – and occasionally artists – who come to the Broughton Archipelago to pursue their work. The hotel analogy isn’t quite accurate – you have to apply to get in. - The Station was founded by local scientist and conservationist Alexandra Morton but she has distanced her activist activities from it so that the work produced by the Station is independent and unbiased. According to Chris, the data produced by the Station points towards the veracity of Morton’s most controversial cause regardless – that the open-pen farming of Atlantic salmon in the area is doing significant damage to wild salmon stocks. - Learn more about Chris and the Salmon Coast Feild Station at www.sealives.org/legacy8 #oceans #photojournalism . . . . . #ocean #saveouroceans #saveourseas #marinelife #oceanlife #oceanhealth #oceanconservation #conservation #salmon #wildsalmon #bccoast #britishcolumbia #marine #marinebiology #research #turningthetide #portrait #portraits #coastal #coastalcommunity #oceanscience #pacific #pacificsalmon #conservationist #broughtonarchipelago #sealives #sealivesdotorg #sealivesinitiative

“People ask me often if I get to take time to enjoy this beautiful place. Sunset moments are where I always try and take a few moments to embrace the beauty around me here. I’ve travelled a lot around the world and I think the Broughton Archipelago is truly one of the most special places on the planet.” - Tim McGrady #farewellharbour 📷: @timjmcg

It was a beautiful day out there on the big ocean - full of humpbacks! We saw more than 20; lunge and trap feeding everywhere! The birds and humpbacks were very busy, feeding on herring everywhere we looked. Our sighted humpback today included Ripple and Obsidian, Freckles, Inukshuk, and Claw. We had awesome sightings of Steller (northern) sea lions, harbour seals, and even had our first sightings of our regular fall visitors... Sooty shearwaters! We know the season is really here when these ocean birds turn up. Stay tuned for our next adventures! . . .

What a stunning day! We headed out West with no reports of Orca. We were lucky enough to spot 7 humpbacks, including a mom and calf. We checked on the Northern Sea lions having a snooze as well. Thanks to our friends at Nimmo Bay Wilderness Resort they had found resident orca close by so we headed towards that way but came upon many before reaching the group Nimmo was with. Orca everywhere!! A 30's, 34's and I 15's. They were so spread out and very vocal. Hot on their tails were over 100 Pacific white sided dolphins. Lots of vocalizations and amazing sights today, all in a calm sea. . . . . . All photos taken with a telephoto lens and cropped for spacing; taken from 200+ m from all wildlife.

Our morning started off with the A34s fishing in the rip. They were full of awesome vocals today! Off we went for humpbacks (including Claw, Inukshuk, Guardian, Argonaut, and Pisa. Big thank you to the @mersociety for IDing Pisa!). They were lunge feeding everywhere we looked! After a look at Steller (northern) sea lions, we were off for a last look at the very social A34s before our trip home. What a busy day out there! . . . . .

In search of Grizzly Bears. A few years ago the largest recorded grizzly bear in BC was shot right here in this very estuary. Last year trophy hunting was banned and the bears now roam safe to feast on the salmon spawning in the rivers.

If a dutch guy offers you a glass of whiskey, do not accept it, the consequences can be terrible. And here is the result. A 7am swim in the 8-10° sea of the canadian waters. So if you don't follow my advise, at least make sure to have a hot chocolate ready ☕ (Luckily we also had pancakes waiting for us) #ourguideswerethebests

Wow; what a day we had! We began with a run down Johnstone Strait; looking for the Biggs killer whales that we saw yesterday. Instead, we found humpback whales Galaxy and Big Mama! Finding Big Mama was a huge surprise, as she is usually down near Victoria. Thank you to the @mersociety for IDing Galaxy on the fly! Off we went to see more humpbacks (and have lunch). We saw so many feeding whales, including Pulteney and Inukshuk! Captain Bill's orca senses were pinging, and he decided to take us home "up top". Sure enough... We barely travelled for five minutes... There they were, the A30s and the A34s! They were fishing and foraging, and we had the opportunity to listen to their vocals. As they grouped up, they were super playful and had a great time playing and spyhopping in the kelp patch. It was a gorgeous end to our day! And all thanks to Captain Bill and his spidey senses. . . . All photos taken with a telephoto lens and cropped for spacing; taken from 200+ m from all wildlife.
