Still open ….

We are still open and running our Broken Group Islands Wildlife Cruise. Recent trips have been great as there is still lots of wildlife (& islands!!) around. October 15th will be their last day of the season.

Great Week on the Water

Last week was a good one for us in terms of wildlife sightings. We saw a Gray whale one day, a Humpback the next, then a group of Orcas and we also saw a healthy Black Bear sow with her TRIPLETS a couple of time. Most days we saw sea otters, all this along with the “usual” sightings of sea lions, seals, a multitude of eagles and other sea birds.

Our Lucky Day

This week we were lucky enough to experience a great wolf sighting in the Broken Group Islands! We saw a splash, then saw a wolf swimming across a small channel & get out on the next island, shake himself, stare at us for a moment, then disappear into the bushes!

Thanks to Dane McArthur for letting us share his photo.

Bedraggled Creatures

A rather bedraggled looking Bald eagle ….. we had a great tour yesterday, despite the rainy conditions.

The only one missing is you!!

 

Calm despite strong winds

Luckily we were unperturbed by yesterday’s strong winds. We chose a sheltered route that kept us mostly out of the wind, found an incredibly beautiful place to anchor for lunch and had some good animal sightings along the way!

Spring in the Broken Group Islands

Spring is a beautiful time of year in the Broken Group Islands when the colours are vibrant, the water so clear that it gets hard to tell where the water and air meet.
