End of our 2019 Season

We are now closed for the season but we already look forward to another year of adventures starting in May 2020!

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

Luckily this sow and her triplets like Ucluelet as much as we do. Recently we have seen her almost daily.

 

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.

 

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.

One Big Momma!

Recently we’ve been lucky enough to get the odd sighting of this sow and her two cubs

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.

Our Picturesque New Location

We love our new location at the Canadian Princess Lodge & Marina, located at 1943 Peninsula Rd.
