Description The plan is to launch our kayaks at the April Point Marina and go around Gowlland Island.  The exact details will depend on the weather and other conditions.  The weather forecast is good and we are hoping the spring flower will be in bloom.  We will check out the interesting islands, such as Doe, Stag, Fawn, Crow, Wren, Mouse, Vigilant.  This trip is planned around the currents in Discovery Passage.  We will go north on the end of the ebb and return south on the beginning of the flood. About 8 km; 4-5 hours.
