For those thinking of taking an exploratory trip on the M.V. Coho I can say
save your money. Despite "The Blob" there is little of interest in the
straits with only 5 Sooty and 1 Pink-footed Shearwater and 1 Pomarine
Jaeger seen on October 17. Gulls abound with the usual numbers of murres.
Info on Vancouver Island boobies below.
