Vern came for another visit in Mid June. After watching his beloved Mets gets crushed by the Mariners, we took a relaxing trip up to Campbell River, BC.

Vancouver Island is an outdoors paradise. Just look at the pictures of the bald eagles. Never have I seen so many in one spot. Like the guide said, all the cool bald eagles in the area know about this magical fishing spot. A combination of the currents produce a pool of water where the fish are plenty and so are the eagles. We also saw a black bear and some Pacific Dolphins, which swam repeatedly under our boat Just playing with us! These guys were so damn fast. According to our guide, these dolphins are second only to the Blue Tuna in speed.

It was a pretty cool nature boat trip. The pictures pretty much speak for themselves.

Campbell River is a cozy little town filled with fishing vessels and surrounded by Pacific Northwest's typical natural beauty. The ferry ride is about two hours from mainland BC followed by a two hour drive north.

Eagle Eye Adventures did an excellent job on the four-hour trip. Besides the animals we also cruised through rapids and even over large whirpools - which is pretty cool to see in person.
