What is that whale?
Cetaceans and Sea Turtles Found in BC
Common Dorsal Fins
Sometimes small cetaceans will swim in the front bow wake of a boat. They can be seen criss-crossing back and forth in front of the ship’s bow. At other times they will swim alongside the boat. Dall’s porpoises and Pacific white-sided dolphins frequently bow ride, whereas harbour porpoisees are shy and tend to avoid boats.
