Comments This year we visited God's Pocket both in September (as we do every year) and also in May. What a treat!

Previous trip reports from 2004 and 2005 give details, so I won't repeat them here. On this trip, we saw hundreds of dolphins, dozens of orcas, several humpbacked whales, and even a lone sea otter.

If you own a dry suit (or are comfortable in cold water in your wetsuit) and have not been here yet, you really should go. You won't find better diving or hosts anywhere.

Some new guest cottages are under construction and will probably be ready for the 2008 season.
