Wow! Capt. Tavish Campbell sent us these photos he took last week while aboard the SV Maple Leaf on our spring Vancouver Island tour, up the Island’s inside passage and into the Great Bear Rainforest.

How’d he get these shots? He used a GoPro camera on a kite! He’s on the ship himself taking these photos.
