Rare orca sightings photographed in Metro Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet

As much of the world hits pause during the coronavirus, those practicing social distancing on the shores of Metro Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet were treated to a rare sighting on the weekend.

Multiple people posted to Twitter reporting orca sightings, with one user reporting he hadn’t witnessed whales traveling that far up the Inlet’s Indian Arm in over 59 years.

A similar post reported orca activity nearby downtown Vancouver's floatplane terminal on Saturday.

The area is generally populated water and air traffic, however, society's sudden pause likely led to the killer whales swimming so close to shore.

On Sunday, yet another sighting was reported off the shores of Stanley Park, where video shows at least four whales surfacing.

Never a dull moment on BC's west coast!
