Mugu w WhalesPooches on pause. Whales!

After we published a picture of a cute doggie in a life jacket we got some great dog-onboard photos and published a couple in our last issue. We have now received even more, but I am going to switch mammals this time to give you some extraordinary boat and whale shots.

This great shot came from Laurette and Frank Mogridge in British Columbia. “MV Mugu Maru waiting for killer whales to pass Sidney, BC”

Trip to VictoriaMore Humbacks in the Straits

Our photo-prolific reader Mike Johnson writes “ I'd just retired and took a trip with a fellow retiree from the TTC.

We were touring the Strait of Juan De Fuca and had the opportunity to see this humpback surface.”

Trip to Victoria 2Got a whale of a shot? Send it our way. The photos must be taken from or near a boat. They don’t have to be mammals – although an onboard cat might be interesting - any great shot is a winner! They must be your shots and free from copyright. Most importantly, they must be wonderful. Send the to us via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and put Photo in the subject line.

Dignified, unruffled, his impassioned gaze noted and then dismissed us, as uninteresting and perhaps unworthy. I was tired. We’d pulled up anchor at Portland Island that morning, and the grind of the diesel engine had worn me down.
