View Full Version : Goodbye to Whale Watching

As many of you know, for the past 5 summers I worked for a whale watching company as a guide. I absolutely loved this job and it didn't feel like work at all... taking people out whale watching 5 days a week... awesome job! The only downside to this job was that I had to work long days (10-12 hour shifts) and it was very difficult for me to take time weekends and holidays off to go camping and stuff. So this year, I made the decision not to go back, giving me the freedom this summer to go away more and enjoy myself. :fire

I thought I would share some pictures I have taken over the years of my time on the boat with the whales, seals, sea lions, and eagle. Enjoy!!!

Wow sue! I've only seen whales surfing and at remote fishing lodge trips but you were lucky to see them near daily!

You should come up here and help me with c.t.o.a.t.h.t.a.w.

It's an organization seeking the ogopogo!

I tried organizing a trip a couple of years ago but there wasn't enough interest. If there is enough interest this time I can try setting up one again... :dontknow:
