June in the Discovery Islands is incomparable, it is alive with wildlife. The hake run coincides with the year’s most powerful tidal currents creating a feast that attracts bald eagles from far and wide. On a big flood tide, the sky turns black with hungry eagles. Below the surface, the humpback whales have returned in force to join the multitude of dolphins, porpoises, and orcas that inhabit these waters while the shorelines are still home to hungry black and grizzly bears. Between commercial water taxi charters and a busy tour schedule, our boats were out there with the wildlife and loving every minute of it. Tours just got a whole lot better with the latest addition to the fleet, the 28ft Mayne Lander is a comfortable 12 passenger landing craft complete with an onboard head, and it’s awesome.
Around the marina and resort, we opened lunch service for the season and, the big news, for the first time Blind Channel is officially open for breakfast! The store is now fully stocked with produce, dairy, and all sorts of treasures. The cinnamon buns and the muffins are hot out of the oven every morning and the fresh bread is irresistible. Here at Blind Channel, we look forward to welcoming you this summer season.
We’ll leave you now with a recap of June 2018
