Vancouver Is. Youth Expedition - update 1

A few pics from the Expdition so far...
This first pic is the team at Port Hardy, in the North of Vancouver Island, at 5am!
Beautiful beginning to our adventure. Close encounters with many Grey Whales from the kayaks, as well as seeing two Humpback whales Breaching (from our camp at Cape Scott) and so much wild life and marine life everywhere, really blew the guys away from day one. Les and Diane are with us too, providing additional support, great value entertainment and generally making the trip even better! Many thanks. We're heading into the mountains now, so hoping to get some more spectacular pics to you by the weekend, before we head out to Body Boat Blade on Orcas Isle to complete the final part of the expedition, the residential!
All the best

ps, Joe tells me its all go home on the Isle of Man, so hoping to shortly get some more pics of the trips and Basking Shark encounters, online.

Sunny Sunday - Basking Sharks!

I'm just back from the Island Games in Greece, and Joe and Neil have just finished the last trip of a day's cracking paddling from Peel, with groups, and the Evening Paddle having some excelllent encounters with Basking Sharks. This time Neil had his camera with him, and got a few pics...

Cheers for taking them.
