Saying “I Do”

Bald eagles mate for life. Here is a couple saying “I Do”..

Breakfast on the Beach

Some days our tour just starts off perfectly …… with a black bear rolling over rocks along the shore to look for crabs underneath.

Dine “With The Birds”

We love the time of year in the spring when we are visited by hummingbirds while anchored in the Broken Group Islands at lunch time. Our guests literally get to “dine with the birds”.

No Lazy Off Season For Us

So … do we get to just sit around and relax all winter long? No, not exactly.

Right now the salon of the Raincoast Maiden has been transformed into a work zone as we’re oiling, wetsanding, painting, cleaning, polishing ….oh, and I see Alan is replacing a light in the hall. 

It is not all work though as we always do manage to escape for a while.  

End of our 2017 Season

Our 2017 season is now well behind us. It is with some sadness that we left beautiful Barkley Sound about 2 weeks ago to take the Raincoast Maiden down the coast to Sidney where she is now safely tucked into a boat house. We will be working on her here, getting her ship shape for next year!

A Comfortable Bed

This California Sea Lion has it made – not only did he find himself a nice bed but a comfy pillow too!

Surviving a Heat Wave

Today was warm, very warm. In fact it was so warm that this Black bear decided to take a swim! He came towards us, marched right into the water, wallowed around for a bit. Then he walked out, shook himself off and carried on with his day!

Ucluelet Residents

Ucluelet’s “residents” come in all shapes and sizes.  Here a great picture of a rather proud Ucluelet “resident” taken by one of our guests, Patrick LaMontagne

Now open for the 2017 season!

 

Our 2017 season has officially begun!  We have run a few cruises this past week and as always, it feels great to be out on the water again.
