Bears, Dolphins and Whales.. Oh My!

Friday, September 9, 2011

Over the weekend guests at Sonora were treated to some spectacular wildlife sightings. Seven transient Orca whales, 12 resident Orcas and an estimated 200+ dolphins and porpoises were spotted in the crystal clear waters surrounding Sonora Island. Check out this amazing video of Orca whales, shot on September 5th, 2011 by Wendy Hartley.

This time of year at Sonora is great for wildlife viewing. With the Homalco First Nation opening a brand new interpretive centre in the Orford River Valley, grizzly bear tours this year, will be more spectacular than ever before. Come to our luxury resort this fall season, and experience everything wild – from the majestic orca whale to the awe-inspiring grizzly bear.
