Due to the Covid-19 outbreak we do a lot of paddling ourselves; yesterday we decided to head for Pirate's Cove on DeCourcy Island. Later in the afternoon a lot of animals are getting more active especially during a low tide. We spotted River Otters, Sea Lions and also this Raccoon....I have never had one of those so close to my kayak.
We just had an unusual herring spawn in Nanaimo. Usually, this happens earlier in the year and a bit more up north. The herring creates this milky-green water and suddenly the ocean is teemed with life; California sea lions are gorging on herring and gulls and Bald Eagles try to catch the scraps. A true delight to paddle through this marvel of nature. Enjoy the video.
We love paddling in winter; this is the time the sea-lions are out!! Today they were really close and even swam underneath our boat leaving a bubble trail. Lots of splashing and oinking around us. Would you like to experience this as well?
Today, two managers from Western Financial Group Nanaimo attempted the Neck Point Roaming Game and almost made it!! They had a blast on this cold, windy but beautiful day. It is a great team building experience and they are coming back with their team for a next try. Way to go, ladies!!
We are excited to announce we added a new adventure to our selection: the Neck Point Roaming Game. This outdoor adventure game is set up for you to have fun and enjoy Neck Point Park with its beautiful beaches and awesome views on the Sunshine Coast and Coastal Mountains. You have to find clues, solve puzzles and maybe learn some new skills along the way to save the citizens of Nanaimo from a looming disaster. Do you have what it takes to save Nanaimo????
Today we checked out some trails on Mount Benson, the mountain dominating the Nanaimo skyline. The day started with hail but fortunately once the storm passed it was a beautiful day. Some non-existing trails and bushwhacking and we made it halfway the mountains and discovered bluffs with exceptional views and even pieces of a plane crash.
