Large gang of Biggs headed west past CR last night at approx 1800 hrs. Consisted of T086Aís T100ís T101s T102 T124Aís T124C and a group of 5 the T085ís. From the new ID guide the T085s seem to be more Alaska Ts then south. Two large males in that gang, photos are posted on my social feeds. 22 animals I think it was total. Was thinking some may have passed your way this evening perhaps? Cheers Nick

@Mehgan yes the link is on this very page-top right hand corner-turn the Audio button to "on" you may have to clear your computer's cache first before it will work. :)

We have a new system for streaming audio. You will need to clear the cash on your browser. It's so much better than what we were streaming! Enjoy! Huge thanks to JStream, Seiji Inagaki and Jeremie Collado!

Hi everyone at Orcalab! I was wondering if there was a problem with the hydrophone broadcast? Iíve been Lucky enough to be able to listen for the past two seasons and the season as well, and occasionally thereís a day or so when Iím not able to connect but it always comes back up, but I havenít been able to connect for almost 2 days since Friday I believe, is it something on your end? Or mine? Thank you for your help as I am desperate to listen once again, and thank you for all of your wonderful work.

Hi Orca live, I was whale watching on Sept 10, 2019 and watched the orcas rubbing on the beach at Robson Blight from the distance. The young guide said we could see on line so I wonder if I could see that date on your cameras. He had it on line while we were watching from afar. Can I see them as there was many rubbing which we could'nt see. Thanks

Sitting on my balcony in Campbell River watching 1 large, possibly 2 female and 1 active baby orca going by on Quadra side. Whale watching boats impeccable but other small boats need lessons (or fines). Beautiful sight!

Hello! I don't have any kayaks but I have a canoe, and I am simply trying to inform myself if the waters right along the coast of the Johnstone straight where there are often whales are nice enough to paddle with a canoe when calm. I am a wildlife biology student at the university of McGill and want to make it clear that I am an experienced paddler and that I am not trying to paddle where I am not allowed or break any regulations. Just want an honest opinion about if canoeing with the wildlife there is doable. Any info would be helpful. Thank you!

For anyone with an iPhone: Download an app called FStream. In the app go to Favorites > Add favorite. Name the stream whatever you like, and in the URL field input this URL: ďhttp://www.orca-live.net/orca2007.asx?. You will then be able to listen to this stream in the app. I often have difficulty listening to these streams on desktop as well, but this works a charm. Will work for streams from other hydrophones as well, ie Lime Kiln, you just need the URL of the stream. Cheers & happy listening! ~Megan M
