Summit 2 Trip to The Gulf Islands

The final expedition for Summit 2 saw the group heading to Gabriola Island for our now famous Blackberry Point to Pirate’s Cove island loop. The trip was a great opportunity for the students to put into practice all of the expedition skills that they have learned over the year, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned, it is that the weather is unpredictable! Strong winds greeted us at Gabriola island, after we had broken through the fog, and the forecast was enough to ensure that we spent longer than expected exploring Pirate’s Cove by foot, with the exception of a short foray into the maelstrom on the second day- “just to see what it’s like”. Once the weather had calmed, the students were treated to the awe inspiring display of marine life that we have come to expect from the area. Every year, I think that this trip helps to inspire at least one student to become a marine biologist! Enjoy the photos!
