Getting on the way is a bit delayed today as a very large starfish has caught tight hold of our anchor chain and we need to kick it off with the boat hook.
It is a bright sunny day and we very much enjoy going through Tuxekan passage and then Tonowek narrows. Both are deep but we have not timed the narrows so we have 3 knots of flood against us. Slow going and sometimes hard to keep a straight line but no real difficulty.
We get a good view of Bald Mountain on Heceta Island and spot a whale in the distance. There are still many sea otters playing around the boat every day.
After anchoring in Nossuk Bay in complete wilderness, we have not seen a single other boat today, we paddle in the maze of rocks and islands in the bay. Very beautiful waters and we get entertained by a group of five female Merganser ducks hiding in a tiny cove. The double inflatable kayak has been a lot of fun.
No luck with the fishing, we caught a small shark that we released and that’s that.
