Riding on Mayne Island, Looking for Whales

On Friday we cycle around Mayne, a small, more rural island with only 900 residents.  We have lunch at a scenic park containing a lighthouse where you can sit on a shoreline beach watching ferries pass through narrow Active Pass, seals, birds, and, if we are lucky, orca (killer) whales.  An afternoon ferry takes us east back to the mainland and the Vancouver airport where the trip ends.  A complimentary shuttle in our van is available from a Vancouver airport hotel to Seattle Saturday morning.  Some guests may prefer to take a ferry from Mayne Island west to Victoria for a few extra days on their own.
