Photo: Whale Watching Ocean Sunset Northern Vancouver Island

A whale watching trip comes to an end as the sunset colors reflect off the surface of the ocean off Northern Vancouver Island, BC as a couple of Killer Whales pass by.

Calm ocean waters, a spectacular sunset and a pair of Killer Whales leisurely swimming by in the beautiful lighting, is more than anyone can ask for when coming close to the end of a whale watching trip.

The yellow coloring at sunset explodes above the ocean as some dark clouds creep in and block out the brightness of the sun. The light manages to filter through the clouds and shine across the rippling ocean water as a male and female Killer Whale are spotted.

The Killer Whales are moving extremely slow and find the last remaining rays of the day the ideal location to have a catnap. The mist from the blowholes sparkles in the sunset lighting while the Killer Whales soak up the sun and enjoy the peacefulness which surrounds them.

While whale watching off Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, passengers never know what to expect from the whales or the weather. Some days are calm, while on other days, the wind can whip through the area and turn the ocean into a rage. ... continue below the picture...

... The whales could be doing a variety of things such as resting, foraging, playing, swimming or breaching while in this massive ocean or they may simply disappear for a day or two.

The sunset hours are some of the best aboard a whale watching vessel as the ocean becomes a much quieter place, the whales can be heard when the water is calm and the sky is the prettiest. Nobody can promise any of this while on a whale watching trip, but to miss out on seeing the whales in their natural enviroment and the chances of a stunning sunset, is something which should never be turned down.

There are many whale watching excursions which depart from Northern Vancouver Island, BC from July through to October every year, so be sure to book one while travelling Vancouver Island.
