Our day started bright and early with a beautiful view out our door.
We stepped out on the deck for some early morning pictures:
The TV in our room had useful information throughout the day.
Today will be deja vu for us. We’re headed for Deception Pass and the Sucia Island. This was the same area we were in a few weeks back aboard the Glacier Spirit on our 3 day trip to the San Juan Islands.
After safely making our way through the pass it was time for our kayak orientation.
While spending the morning on Sucia Island, we had a choice of kayaking, hiking or taking a skiff tour. Since we had hiked the island on our previous trip, we opted for kayaking.
Our orientation was interrupted when the bridge announced “Orcas, port side off the bow.”
After watching the Orca’s play for quite a while we set off again to the Sucia Island and our kayak orientation resumed.
The ship carries a bunch of kayaks on two decks, and they are placed into the water when trips are planned.

We got back on the boat for lunch and pulled up anchor. The afternoon was spent relaxing on the sun deck while we set sail into Canada’s Inside Passage.
Along the way we had plenty of time to view sights. The captain was happy to slow down for any interesting sightings.
Our first full day quickly came to an end:
