Repositioning to the Great Bear Rain Forest

Aug 16- 19 2006
We allow ourselves a week to move the boat up or down from the Bella Bella area. It doesn’t take that long, but the waters off Cape Caution are very exposed to the open Pacific. I always like the extra breathing space on the schedule to allow us to pick a good day for making it around the “Cape”. Last fall we came around in 4 meter seas with light winds. This summer the seas were down but the wind was up, so we spent a half day in the Deserter Group off Port Hardy waiting for the NW winds to ease off. The slow pace didn’t seem to bother the crew as we were more than happy to catch up on our SLEEP!

I think this must be “great boat” picture # 2,364,335.

We are always on the look out for new lunch spots and the trip up coast is great for snooping around…

Johnstone Strait regular kayaking tours

July 9- August 15 2006

It was a special honour to have Tony
and Judy bring their family all the way from South Africa to join us.

Travel writers Chris McBeath and Bill Vanderford joined us for a tour. You can check Bill’s testimonial article for his views on his tour.

Skipper Tony on the Tall Ship “Pacific Grace” swings by to catch up on the latest news.

Luke tries out his new submersible camera.

These folks have already booked 5 berths for 2007 in the Great Bear!

Skipper (me) makes sure Luke is doing everything right!
