If the opportunity to spend two weeks looking for whales in the middle of the Pacific Ocean arose, would you take it? For most people it would an automatic yes. That’s where I found myself last month, aboard the CCGS John P. Tully. For two weeks I was invited to work with a team of scientists from Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Pacific Biological Station to document marine mammals in the North Pacific. Here I recount some of the memorable experiences I had during this summer’s marine mammal survey.
