Coastal naturalists on board BC Ferries this summer


2010 marks the 50th anniversary of BC Ferries -- and it's also the 100th anniversary of Parks Canada.

All the more reason to ride the ferries this summer, as the two organizations have teamed up. Nine naturalists will be aboard the ferries that sail between Tsawwassen-Swartz Bay and Horseshoe Bay-Departure Bay. They'll be sharing stories about BC's marine transportation and national park history Fridays through Mondays until Labor Day.

Those early days of the BC Ferries meant there was only one route between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay; and the Pacific Rim was simply a dream for many Canadians. Today, it's one of Parks Canada's most treasured reserves.

This is the fifth season for the educational programs aboard BC Ferries. Highlights will include stories about wildlife, marine life, geography, culture, history and places to explore such as the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve. The 30-minute presentations are held on the outer decks of the vessels.

As a bonus, passengers who attend the presentations often see wildlife while on the upper deck, including seals, eagles and orca whales.

As a final note , permit me thank you for your patience with my English as (I am sure you have figured this at this moment ,), English is not my number one language as a result I am using Google Translate to build out what to compose what I truly have in mind to state.
