We visited South Pender Island and stayed on Drummond Bay at the south end of the island, only 1.5 km from the U.S. border in Boundary Pass. A crescent gravel beach fronted a rocky bay. Several rocky islets were popular with birds and seals. Rocky headlands book-ended the bay. Observing wildlife was an all-day experience.Bald eagles fished on the waters and watched from the trees.
Boats cruised through the passage, past the bay. Mount Baker is in the background.
Seals stayed in the bay all, day, taking turns fishing and then basking in the sun.
Porpoises could be spotted along the waters off the coast.
Blue herons fished the shallows at low tide.
At this bay it was Wildlife TV all day as we watched the wildlife interact with the ocean at high tide then at low tide each day.
Sunrise was best greeted with a coffee on a log on the beach.
We found South Pender Island to be a wonderful place to explore on beaches, headlands, trails, and in our kayaks on the water.
