ALASKA: 2015 LEG 1 – BAMFIELD TO JOSE BAY | NW Explorations



We passed the morning in Bamfield.  A late morning walk to Breaker Beach on the other side of the peninsula.  Alan with Aquila contributed to some ‘mushroom planting’ – helping one of the community members install hand painted wooden mushrooms along the board walk where it dips into forest (Rick and Pat aboard Eldean were later cajoled into a photo op) .   Retuned in time for lunch and pulled off from the dock at 1300 for Joe’s Bay just 12 miles west of Bamfield in the Broken Islands.

The fleet kept tight to Deceptions course through Robbers passage from Bamfield into Imperial Eagle Channel and through some of the narrower island passage ways inside the Broken Islands.  After the fleet set anchors in Joe’s Bay, Deception’s mate Rowan along with the crew aboard Eldean, Navigator and Aquila took the dinghys out for an exploration.  They found some seals in the channels outside from the anchorage.  Vanessa from Deception and Dave from Ajax opted for the kayaks exploring along the shoreline of the half dozen islands surrounding the bay.  A quiet night.  5_21_15_1
