Pruth Bay off of Calvert Island and the private Hakai Institute, an

Port Hardy to Allison Harbor, Really
Distance traveled:  27.5 miles So Monday at 11am we pulled out of Port Hardy, too late to round CapeCaution as winds come up in the afternoons, but early enough to make good progress toward the Cape. It was a pleasant and uneventful trip, and we got the anc...

Well . . . we hope not! One of the blogs we follow (svcambria.com) is a few weeks ahead of us on this journey north, and when they left Port McNeill 4 weeks ago, where we are now, hoping to round Cape Caution the next day, the wind came up, and they spent 8...

Distance traveled: 46.6 miles Awake at 5:45, we listened to the weather forecast on the VHF radio, calling for Gale Force Winds on Johnstone Strait just outside the harbour where we spent the night. The current and wind were moving in the harbour, but our v...

Secret Cove, Sechelt Peninsula, to Lund, "End of the Road"
Distance traveled:  48.8 miles After three loooooong days of travel, we finally had a short one that allowed for play time. It's not common to see a tugboat hauling THREE barges loaded to the gills as below! Another sunny, hot (90s) day found us in Lund on ...
