Becky and Rick flew into Terrace to join us in Kitamat and head for Gardner Canal which is so remote that there are no radio communications with Canadian Coast Guard. During our three days there we did not see another boat or human being.
After anchoring in Kildish Inlet we proceeded to Chief Matthews Bay where we examined hanging glaciers, kayaked and watched a grizzly bear onshore. The mainland is big country with towering mountains.
|One Big Prawn|
|A Record Breaker|
Between prawn pulls we watch the shore for wildlife and the water for birds. There are several types of loons in the area including the Common Loon and the Red Throated Loon. Their mournful cries can be haunting.

|A Quiet Anchorage|
A peaceful night was spent in this cozy, calm anchorage. As you move to the Outside Passage on the western portion of British Columbia, the islands become less towering. The glaciers must have ground harder there.
|Nice Catch, Rick!|
|Another Big One|
We hope you have enjoyed the tour. We have all enjoyed your company!
