A kayaker in trouble was rescued from the waters south of Trial Island by a whale-watching boat on Monday. Although the unidentified male kayaker was descibed as being in "a very serious situation" at the time, he is rportedly doing well now. He was only in the water for 15 minutes, but was already showing signs of being hypothermic, a serious reminder of how cold the waters can be in these parts.
The whale-watching boat was from Five Star Whale Watching, a local whale watching company that Louise and I have gone out on tour with previously. Good job, Five Star!
