Wildlife Zodiak Tour – the ultimate!

Happy people!

 

Cormorants near Chocolate BeachI knew I live in paradise, but even I didn’t realize how much breathtaking beauty is right at our doorstep!

Yesterday we went on a Wildlife Safari Tour with Ian from Gulf Islands Safari: http://www.gulfislandssafari.com/

Within minutes we were watching cormorants and eagles. Later on we observed oystercatchers, with their long red beaks and a juvenile eagle learning to hunt. Bald Eagle

Seals on Bell Chain

Juvenile Bald Eagle

Ian took us out to the Bell Chain, long narrow rocks full of humongous sea lions, and suntanning seals. Listening to their barks, with white Mt Baker shimmering in the back ground left us all is awe. If you visit Salt Spring, taking a whale watching or wildlife tour with Ian in his zodiak, is one of the best experiences you can hope for. Ian is very knowledgable and knows these waters like the back of his hand. He might even take you to a pub on Saturna!
