Swimmer and a Kayak Flotilla in Active Pass

On July 25, Karl and Stephanie were on a BC Ferry going from Tsawassen to Swartz Bay. While the ferry was in Active Pass (as in, a narrow passage between Gabriola and Mayne Islands with fast, swirling currents, where the traffic protocol is Stay The F*$% Out Of The Way Of The Ferries) they saw a swimmer with a group of kayakers for escort.

Here's the video Karl took:

While taking the 1:00PM ferry from Swartz Bay (Vancouver Island) to Tsawwassen (Vancouver BC) on July 25, 2015, they told us that a person was swimming through Active Pass (Between Galiano Island and Mayne Island) with a group of kayakers. They said something about his route, but I didn't hear it. Swimming around Mayne Island perhaps? If anyone knows the name of the swimmer and their route, please post it in the comments. The ferry was the Spirit of British Columbia. Filmed with a Canon HD CMOS digital camera.

  1. Wonder who is the swimmer here too?... sorry can't help you with that... quite right quite a lot of kayaks over there for sure.
