As we rise to the crest of a new wave, we all witness it. First the spout of air, then the dorsal fin, finally the massive gleaming backs that arch above the water’s surface, over and over again. “Thar she blows,” I call out, and I chuckle to myself at how often those words have applied during our visit to Vancouver Island’s rugged West Coast.
