Porpoise Bay, Sechelt


Kunechin Islets, close by where the Chaudiere was sunk in 1992 as an artificial reef. Another dive site is very close to the Sechelt Rapids (aka Skookumchuk).

Saturday Sept 19, 2009 Porpoise Bay, Sechelt
This is not exactly the most peaceful anchorage we have encountered, but not the noisiest either. Float planes are landing and taking off about every 30 minutes here.... where is everyone going? The sun is out with a few clouds floating by, all in all it looks like it will be a nice day. We are waiting until afternoon to bring a guest passenger on board, as most of you will know GG will be joining us for three days of sailing. Then we will be off to spend the night in Storm Bay, about an hour south of the rapids, a popular anchorage in Sechelt Inlet.
Leave: Porpoise Bay 1600
Heading north up Sechelt Inlet towards Storm Bay. We will anchor overnight and then leave in the morning to catch the 9:44 am slack tide through Skookumchuk.
There she goes again! Always on the computer!
