The Hurricane Island dive featured a wide variety of rockfish; the Walker Group featured a wild profusion of colourful invertebrates. There were sponges, tunicates, different sorts of crabs, nudibranchs and sea stars a meter and a half across and the ever-present beautiful plumose anemone. It brought back fond memories of our dives many years ago in nearby God's Pocket and Nakwatko Rapids.

50 years! Of course a shared anchorage and dinner together was arranged!
A bit south of that rendezvous, some careful calculations were required with departure times to avoid fighting massive currents along Jonstone Strait. Further along, the timing is even more critical at the Dent, Gillard and Yuculta Rapids where the wrong timing makes the channels either impassable or quite dangerous with eddies and overfalls.
