Summer Sightings on the Coast
Captain Neil Shearar reports some great highlights from the just completed 7-day North Coast / Khutzeymateen trip aboard the Island Roamer. With the early spring salmon runs now coming in, various pods of orcas from the "A" clan were in the area providing some excellent whale watching. The Khutzeymateen Conservancy lived up to its reputation with some incredible grizzly bear viewing with local guide Greg Palmer. The finale was coming upon a howling wolf pack and a lone wolf out along the shore; followed on the last morning by a visit to one of the most famous petroglyphs (rock carvings) on the coast, "Man who fell from Heaven", accompanied by a Tsimshian native guide. If you haven't visited this area book now for 2011 and find out why everyone is talking about the Khutze!
