One of the many great things about kayaking in Sechelt Inlet is the up close encounters with the wildlife that live there. We had the opportunity to paddle with these Pacific White-sided Dolphins a couple of times and it was an incredible experience. They spent quite some time with us, diving around and under the kayaks and seemingly having as good a time as we were. For many years seeing dolphins in the Inlet was a rarity but in the last three or four years they have become a regular occurrence with large pods spending a good part of the Summer in the Inlet. Hopefully a sign of increasing fish stocks and healthier water conditions.
