Encounter Summary:

I received a call from my friend Gord Rowles who spotted killer whales slightly east of Race Rocks through his Big Eyes from his 23rd-floor apartment. I was just finishing up breakfast with Ken who came over on the morning Coho for a meeting with me.
Ken and I left Victoria Harbour at 1139 and at 1202 came across T087 with the T124A2's and T124C traveling north east west of Constance Bank. At 1215 they got a seal which they divided up for several minutes before they proceeded to travel east when we left them at 1232.
