... there is so much life and lots of plankton in the water. A dry suit is a must! One thing I would like to come back someday and do is a overnight kayak tour with Wild Coast Adventures on Quadra Island.

One other great big blue one wanted my bangle and refused to let go! Apparently some of the birds are given to the sanctuary on their owner's death and some are ...
... a huge group of Sea Lions sunbathing on rocks. Further on we passed several Sea Otters - these were probably our favourite as they just lay on their backs with their feet in the air, then almost wave at you as they dive down out of sight.
Wildlife spotting over, we moored at a small jetty after about 90 minutes or so on the boat. We then had a 40 minute walk along boardwalks through a temperate rainforest to get to Hot Springs ...
