Description We will take the ferry to Campbell River and drive to Union Bay, where we will launch the kayaks into Baynes Sound.  The crossing to Tree Island/Sandy Island Marine Park is about 2.5 NM and the low tide is around noon.  We can explore the beaches, Seal Islets, and spits to the northwest and southeast.  The marine park is known for its bird and marine environment and fragile ecosystem.  Here is the link to the park information:

This is meant to be a relaxing trip and we will cancel or postpone if the weather is not reasonable.
