Encounter Summary:

We left the dock at Victoria's inner harbour at 1525 to follow up a report of members of Lpod coming in from the west.
We came across L22 and L89 a few miles south of Ogden Point traveling east at 6 knots. A mile to the south-west of them was the rest of the animals fairly grouped up also traveling east at 6 knots.
We got proof of presence shots of all that were present and headed back to the harbour ending the encounter at 1616.
