Great Torrington, United Kingdom3 contributions
A wonderful way to experience the beauty of the Broken Islands with Al and Toddy who are so knowledgeable about the history of the area and where to find the birds and critters. The boat is very comfortable with lots of room to spread out fore and aft. With our hosts very sharp eyes we saw bald eagles perched in trees, different colonies of sea lions and seals, a sea otter and three separate bear sightings. Our hosts were very respectful of the wildlife and gave them space, such as the shy otter but we were close and personal with the uncaring seals and sealions. With the binoculars provided we had a good view of the eagles and the bears. Only the whales were absent this day but no mind as the real pleasure is to see the beauty of the environment and enjoy a day on the water. The "extra" of a meal was well worth it served at little tables and chairs set up all over the boat as we anchored in a quiet spot, eating, sipping wine and chatting up fellow travellers. Great fun on Al and Toddy's last tour of the 2021 season.

The sail through Barkley Sound and the Broken Islands was beautiful and made so by Al and Toddy through extra efforts to heighten our experience and yet be safe.

We had a fantastic day out with Al and Toddy on their very comfortable boat - they live on it - and were so lucky with the weather late in the season (it was early October and their last tour of the year). We saw bears, eagles, seals, sea lions, kingfishers, plus the beautiful scenery of the offshore islands. The tour is not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
