Named after Darby Channel on the central coast of British Columbia, Darby (I98) is a male killer whale born in 2002. Darby is the fifth calf of Hecate (I16) who unfortunately passed away in 2018. He has two surviving siblings: Magee (I51) and Rivers (I128). Darby is now a "sprouter", meaning that his dorsal fin will grow taller over the next few years as he reaches sexual maturity.
