Yesterday we ran our first tour of the season. We had sunny skies, good views and wildlife sightings, a delicious gourmet meal catered by Heartwood Kitchen while anchored in the Broken Group Islands and we even saw three Gray whales!
The last few days have been glorious, the kind of conditions we hope for all year:
Fabulous weather and great sightings over the last few days.
Cruising through breathtaking scenery on a fine day – what more could a person want! The good news is that it is not too late – we’re open until Oct. 14th.
This year we have been seeing sea otters almost every day. Sometimes we wonder whether it is them who entertain us or vice versa!
Everyone has to give their feet a good cleaning once in a while – especially when they are this big!
We always see a multitude of Bald eagles, especially in the early part of our season, and this year we have also been seeing sea otters almost daily. Here some superb images taken by one of our guests, Patrick Marshall, who came out with us on July 31st
Bald eagles mate for life. Here is a couple saying “I Do”..
The other day we were lucky enough to see an ocean sunfish (Mola mola), one of the more bizarre creatures we encounter.
Some days our tour just starts off perfectly …… with a black bear rolling over rocks along the shore to look for crabs underneath.
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”.
