A Large White Animal Under my Boat

North Vancouver

Below is one of 17 experiences reported to us by Brian Reinhardt. If you would like to read his other 16 reports, they are posted throughout the web site by year, or altogether on one page. We felt this is important since part of the puzzle is answering the question: why certain people have so many experiences while others never see anything peculiar in their entire lifetime?

1971 - I was by myself in a 13.5 ft. boat crossing from Deep Cove in N. Van. to Bedwell Bay located on the other side of Indian Arm. About mid channel I happened to look down into the water and there approx. 10 ft. below my boat was a large white animal swimming along. It appeared to be about the same width as my boat (5 feet) but about twice the length. The only thing I can think of it might have been is a Beluga Whale but they are not supposed to be in our area except in the Aquarium. My boat was also white so maybe it thought it had found a companion. I was just worried it might flip my boat over if it got to close but after about half a mile it disappeared. I never did see it again. It was not a Killer Whale.
