• 7th July 2010 - By greg
    We departed from Ucluelet at 6:00 am this morning under sunny skies and calm air with our bows pointed toward the broken island chain. It was calm crossing the channel so I was happy. It took about 3 hours to reach Clark island – the first island in the Broken Island chain. As I approached Effingham island, I was greeted by a pod of hump backs in the distance – awesome! We toured around a bit until the winds started to pick up and found a great, quiet and peaceful moorage spot near Dodd.

    We will tour around the islands tomorrow – I think I would like to head back to Effingham to get some photos of the whales if they make a repeat performance.

    This “quasie (sp?) stationary ridge of high pressure”” is still causing lots of wind for the next few days, but it seems to be calm in the early morning, so that is when I’ll plan the return trip across the channel.
