Course: Johnstone Strait > Discovery Passage > Seymour Narrows > Gowland Harbour
We have the current in our favour for the time being so we are heading out. Lots of other traffic this morning. We saw some orcas, about 6 or so, close to Chatham Point, but not close enough to get any pictures. We stopped in Plumper Bay for a couple hours to wait for slack water in Seymour Narrows. Going through the narrows, we had a cruise ship breathing down our necks. We wanted to put up the sails and start doing some tacking!
