We had high expectations for our visit to Quirpon Island and they were exceeded. It was a real adventure. Because it was blustery we took the boat over to Grandmothers Cove and then hiked to the lighthouse. We were accompanied by Madonna who told us some of the history of the island and pointed out places of interest. Once we got settled in we went out to look around and right below us, in the cove, were two Orcas swimming around. Later we came upon a couple fox cubs and, I think, one of their parents. These guys were pretty tame and good friends with the staff. Next morning we went back, this time by boat, and so we got a completely different viewpoint.
All that with comfortable rooms and delicious, hearty meals.
