Depending on currents, we will either circumnavigate sparsely populated and cliffy Ketron Island or head north towards Fox Island, seeking out Harbor Porpoises and other cetaceans (whales) that frequent the area, as well as iconic Pigeon Guillemots and other sea birds. Some groups may also visit the Sequalitchew area.
