Just watching the replay of the sunset at CP and saw a nice tight group cutting the corner into Blackney from Johnstone Strait...time was about 5pm. Gentle pink sunset...Corky on my mind and in my heart.

I am missing all these guys right now. They are all heavily in my thoughts. Glad to hear the 42's appear healthy, missing my little dude Surf even tho he's not exactly little. Lol. Always good to know my other boys Surge & Fife are around. Sigh... I miss them:)Obviously I'm having a very sentimental moment. My magical orca family, so much love to them all. Big hugs!

Ahhh, the 42's along with A 5's,you are very lucky folks. :) I have to ask even tho I have a hunch about the answer. BUT was Kaikash seen with the 42's??

@JB hi there was a HB spotted off the waters of Campbell River on New Years Day-there is an article about it in the CR Mirror paper :)

We are certain that we saw a humpback in Pearse Passage this morning. Is this possible at this time of year?

I used to listen to the audio feed on my iphone using FStream. In the last month or so this has not been working. Is the link to the audio feed changed? Or is there an alternate way to listen through my mobile device? Hate to be missing out on the wonderful sounds! Thanks folks.

30th Dec 0930. Small group of orca slowly travelling east down mid Johnstone Strait. Two adult males, and perhaps 6-8 smaller members. Followed respectfully by a water taxi !

Thanks very much, Jan, and hi everyone! We can see that it's snowing on Hanson Island, perfect for a white Christmas scene to wake up to in the morning! Here's hoping all of you are enjoying this season of hope wherever you are, and like us, looking forward to a new year in which the world makes progress towards that ultimate goal, peace at last. Please take good care of yourselves and each other, and thank you so much for caring about whales and the world they (and we) inhabit. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

j@colorado, I'm not sure if this helps, but I am on a mac, and can no longer listen to the audio because the plug-in called Flip4mac is no longer free. Does your computer have the plug in? What happens when you try to turn the audio on?
07 Dec 2017 14:52:03 PST

I am sure I'm just not finding the info but how can I access just the mics? From explore.org the underwater cams/mics are all on highlights so just trying to figure out how to access and listen to the mics here. Thanks!
06 Dec 2017 10:56:12 PST

Hi everyone, our 2018 calendar is now ready to be mailed. If you would like one (or more) send us an email to orcalab@island.net and give us your postal address. We'll let you know how much to send us ($20 + postage). The printer did a great job and we think you'll love it!

I am listening now and hear in-air from mic. Is the hydrophone mixed in with the mic? Also live audio is for the screen to left ((orcalab)? The feed to right is not live, right?

wonderful sounds!

Hi all. I have been having difficulty getting on the hydrophones in the last few days. Anyone else? Is it the Orca-Live site or on my end? Thanks in advance! Jen

is the orcalive audio synchronous with the orcalab cams? There are humpbacks breaching at orcalab right now but I can't hear them on underwater audio.

04 Nov 2017 20:28:40 PST

Java Jen, are you saying when you click on the "Orca Live" small window...there is no sound? When I go to the Home page and click on "Orca Live"...I have sound and it brings me back to the community page. Does that make any sense to you? Not meaning to be rude...but do you have your audio open at the bottom of your screen and not with an "X?"
MaryEllen Simmons@@Fruit Heights, UT
04 Nov 2017 11:19:17 PST

Hi Maryellen! Thanks for the info. Windows 10 does have WMP. I thought I looked this up. Oh well... So, I guess my problem is, I don't know how to get this site's hydrophone audio to work. I have audio on on the community page and then I go to the home page and click the Orca sound tab. It opens a smaller box and that is all. Any idea what I am doing incorrectly now?
Java Jen@CH, USA
04 Nov 2017 11:10:06 PST

Java Jen, in response to your audio question. I have a laptop with Windows 10. Just did a "Search" on my machine and found that it came with Windows Media Player. Perhaps you have WMP and it's somehow not playing correctly...not properly activated. Perhaps check your settings. Best info I can offer. MaryEllen aka HumpbacksAreMyFave ;)
MaryEllen Simmons@1128 S. Lloyd Rd., #37
04 Nov 2017 09:01:25 PST

Question about the audio. I see it requires Windows Media Player. Windows10 doesn't do WMP. Anyone with Windows 10 able to get the audio? How are you doing it? Thanks in advance! Jen

Sorry about that, Lori! Things are more complicated here now, tried to figure out how to do the spooky sea lions Halloween pumpkin show but didn't succeed. Next time maybe, meanwhile hope you had a great spooky Halloween!

Hi Paul and Helena. Update from the East. Still running tours in Campbell River as the weather and whale action has been incredible. Went through some id's from the past 2 days encounters. On Oct 26th at 9 am or so a large pod of Northern Residents went south past CR to the Gulf. We caught up wioth them off salmon Point a couple hours later. Looks like we had G17's (saw G50 G59) G2 matriline and G17 matriline animals again. Yesterday the 27th they passed CR in the am and were seen at 1600 at Chatham point Westing hard. Yesterday at 4pm we spent time with the Biggs orca T101's and T102 and also found Sam T046C2 with this Gang! Then at 1800 hrs as the sun went behind the mountains and the sky went red we ran smack dab into all of J POD Southern Resident Orcas off of Cape Mudge foraging ! We were able to ID some of the key members and assume all of J Pod on scene. over 60 Orcas in the local area today just incredible!!
