February 1st - Discovery Island (#8)
Dan and I went for an afternoon paddle around the islands. Conditions were nice with not much wind or current and a relatively low tide (there were rocks in places we did not expect them!). As we neared Commodore point on Discovery, Dan spied an Orca fin and we stopped and watch as a group of 4 orcas (Biggs?) swam by about 500m to the south of us. They were "on a mission" as it was not long before they were well to the east of us past Seabird point. Shortly after this we spotted Cheryl in her boat anchored off the north side of Discovery. She was watching the wolf with her family and we stayed and watched him with them for some time. A great afternoon on the water with some big wildlife highlights.
