Bamfield on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada is a remote community that is home to a sophisticated marine science research centre, but also to a town that is spread out between a number of inlets. I loved this photo because we had the amazing experience of kayaking in amongst these inlets and remote areas that are untouched. Shortly after this photo was taken, I saw an elusive humpback whale emerge from the sea briefly and never saw it again.
We canoed 14km down Maligne Lake to Spirit Island in perfect conditions. On our way back up the lake the weather changed swiftly and the 14km back to the boat house against relentless headwinds and strong waves almost broke us. A true adventure we’ll never forget.
