Spy Hop Beach
I spent a wonderous 5 days camping and sea kayaking in Johnstone Strait between July 16th and July 20th. I made Spy Hop Beach my basecamp. It’s located just west of the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve.
On the afternoon of the 17th, a pod of Northern Resident Orca passed right by my beach and later than evening, also a Humpback Whale. On the afternoon of July 19th I was visited by another pod, including “Springer” and her two calves, “Spirit” and “Storm.” Springer is one of the most famous Orca in the World and it was an honor to meet her and her offspring. One of the calves actually breached in front of my kayak.
