Special subscribers...this coming Saturday September 30th - noon to 4 pm!
With every season comes changes to the wildlife in our area and as we enter fall, the weather can
be a little unstable. This fall we're going to be offering specials (weather permitting) for you to visit our beautiful area...with someone special onboard.
This coming Saturday - September 30th join us for a trip to Portland Island with nature
photographer Terry Venables. You may have seen Terry's photographs on the Weather Channel
or interviews with various news agencies when the baby hawk hatched among the eagles in Sidney this summer.
You'll depart from Canoe Cove Marina E Dock at noon and set out through lovely Gulf Island
passages to your Portland Island destination. Pack a little lunch with you, or maybe have breakfast at Canoe Cove Joe's before we leave. :)
We'll set you on Portland Island (aka Princess Margaret Marine Park) for a few hours to hike the
lovely trails and shoreline, take in photo opportunities and Tips with Terry or just enjoy the remote-ness of an island with no vehicles. The trails are rated moderate and there are 6.5 km of them
(3 hour loop; cross trails, 1 hour) from any of the three camping areas located on Princess Margaret (Portland Island). And yes, camping area mean outhouses! :)
We'll depart from Portland at about 3 pm for a meandering route back to Canoe Cove Marina.
There is no BC Ferry access to Portland Island, so this is a wonderful treat for those who do not
have their own boat. There is limited seating for the journey - only room for 11.
Cost per person is $30 return.
