Yesterday, September 2nd, was a day we will not soon forget.
First, your new vessel, the 'Whale Tale' is beautifully constructed, immaculately maintained, well appointed and very comfortable. In addition, it was seaworthy, powerful and very fast. We have had the pleasure of crossing Georgia Straight many times in the past, never have we done so as quickly and smoothly as yesterday.
Second, the 'discovery' tour around the south end of Saturna was beautiful, the etched sandstone rock formations, the countless sea lions and birdlife and the currents through Boiling Reef, outstanding! The only thing missing was the Orcas often found in that area, however, you did locate several pods making their way south near Sydney, on Vancouver Island. They were a majestic site and entertained us and others for quite some time, simply breathtaking - we knew we could count on you!
The trip back was so very scenic and interesting, loved the brief stop at Saturna Beach and the walk up the hill to the Saturna Island vineyards and winery, in particular, navigating the man made 'cut' separating North and South Pender Islands was beautiful, as was cruising past Port Browning and then Lyle Harbour and Winter Cove. Leaving Saturna by way of Boat Pass was very dramatic, the return crossing back to beautiful White Rock wrapped up a fabulous day.
Your warm hospitality and that of your assistant and 'naturalist', Nadia, provided an experience that we will remember and be talking about for some time to come!
