Luckily, we stumbled upon the coolest campsite of our trip. It was a little hidden as you can see in the picture below. In fact, at high tide, you could paddle between the island and not see the fire pit or flat tent area.We were surrounded on 3 sides by water. This allowed us to sit and watch the wildlife.There were Stellar sea lions, harbor seals, birds galore, orcas, and humpbacks everywhere.
In the middle of the night we were woken up because the whales were so close. We could hear them breathing and talking to each other. The full moon made it easy to see them as they swam through Blackney Passage singing to each other.
We were alone with just as and the animals when we were startled by a small boat that came cruising by. It had a few people on it, but they were watching the big screen and didn’t see us or the whales.
