It is a beautiful, calm, sunny day here in Shushartie Bay on Northern Vancouver Island. On days like this It is easy to get tricked into thinking that it’s always like this here in April ! In September, the beach at the head of this bay is an excellent place to spot black bears foraging in the seaweed and fishing for salmon in the mouth of the Shushartie river but at this time of year there is nothing stirring.
The divers are diving on Dillon rock right now – a famous spot for wolf eels and Octopi.
Later today we will be heading back to the Browning Pass area. We just can’t get enough of these spectacular walls!
I am hopeful that I will be able to join our guests on one of their adventures very soon. All the talk aboard is of the incredible colours of the anemones, sponges, corals etc and the sheer variety of creatures to be seen.
And not to mention the 50 foot visibility….Heres hoping that by the time of my next post I will be able to talk of things I’ve seen first hand.
