Wallace and De Courcy Island

  • Aboard the National Geographic Venture
  • Pacific Northwest

Our final day of exploring the inland waters of the Pacific Northwest! It has been an incredible journey and we took a final chance to fill our memories and camera cards to capacity. An exploratory day, we began by arriving to Wallace Island. An islet not far from Nanaimo, British Columbia and a Canadian provincial park we landed ashore at the dock and took walks along the trails to discover some of the old resort history there. Some were fortunate enough to see mink and otter, while others were quite happy to find sea stars in the intertidal area. The afternoon saw National Geographic Venture reposition to De Courcy Island where a final opportunity to kayak was offered, as well as walks ashore. It has been a beautiful adventure and the Pacific Northwest has certainly worked its way into everyone’s heart.
