this story from the Victoria Times-Colonist, a kayaker was rescued last Friday evening by the crew of the BC Ferry, the MV Quinitsa. While docked at Denman Island, crew responded quickly to a rescue call. A woman on shore had heard someone calling for help from out on the water, and due to the swift action of the ferry crew, the kayaker was rescued about a mile from the terminal. The paddler and her kayak were taken to the terminal.
While no details were released about the kayaker or the nature of her emegency, she was fine and she picked up her kayak the next day.
