Last Chance …

It is not too late yet to come out with us before we close for the season – we’d love to see you aboard!

A Meal & Setting to Remember

The lunch alone is worth taking our trip for! The food is delicious (prepared by Heartwood Kitchen restaurant in Ucluelet), delivered to you in a wicker basket on a luxury yacht while anchored amidst the gorgeous scenery of the Broken Group Islands – for most of our guests this is a unique experience.

The Cobb salad is shown here – other choices are salmon or chicken and all of the menu options are finger licking good!  See the full menu here:  Gourmet Lunch Menu

Sea Otter Soup

Seeing sea otters in the wild is always a delight! Some sea otters are quite shy but this particular group doesn’t seem to mind us coming over for a visit.

Bald Eagles aplenty!

 

Although there are lots of Bald Eagles in our area, we never tire of seeing these majestic birds.  Here are a couple of spectacular images taken from our boat by one of our guests, Danny McCreadie.  Thanks, Danny, for allowing us share these!

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.

The only one missing is you!!

 

The boys are leaving town

The “boys club” has thinned out considerably in recent days.  Only a few California sea lions remain as most have left the area and headed south to meet up with their ladies. Luckily they don’t stay away for long, so we eagerly await their return in late summer.

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.
