VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Five people died after a whale watching boat with 27 people on board sank off Vancouver Island, and one person remained missing, Canadian authorities said.

The vessel made a mayday call late Sunday afternoon on a calm, clear and sunny day off the tourist community of Tofino, a popular destination for whale watchers, the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre said. The cause of the sinking remained a mystery.
