Myself, my brother Alex, and Willy with the binoculars. The Ferry ride is a 12 hour trip from Bella Coola to Port Hardy and as you can imagine stunning scenery along the way, with the occasional dolphin (or porpoise?), humpback whales and seals. Willy has done this trip many times for work and was an expert whale spotter. We met him in the line for the Ferry and over the trip we exchanged stories and talked quite a bit with him. If the boat was a pub and we didn't have to drive anywhere after, (you can get beer etc. on the Ferry) the three of us could very well have talked ourselves into a great day of drinking! I haven't any "sea legs" to speak of and know first hand what a rolling ocean can do combined with a few too many drinks...good we didn't.
