The RCMP have several boats here in Tofino. This type of boat is called a RIB,Ridged Inflatable Boat.The boat I use is also a RIB,just much smaller!
This boat is called the “Eagle”.It’s the boat used to by the RCMP for two native villages,Ahousaht & Opitsat.
It was coming to the dock in Tofino at sunset.
The Nadon pulled into Tofino this afternoon.I wished the light was better,but you get what you get?
This is one of their marine cruisers they use to get about on the water.
This thing can haul ass! I’ve seen the wake this boat leaves!
Not sure how long she is in town for?
They came back into the harbour from the north. I’m guessing on this one ,but I can almost guarantee that they were at Ahoushat.
A Native village north of Tofino.
Must of been important to be heading out of harbour at sunset!
A sliver of light came through at sunset and lite up only a small portion of the harbour.
You can see the Coast Guard Vessel “Cape Ann” at her berth and the RCMP Patrol boat as well.
The Chiboum is the fishing boat in the foreground. The Nadon is in the far background. The Nadon is a RCMP vessel and was just leaving the harbour. It looked like it may of been going up to Ahoushat way? A native village further up the coast.
The Chiboum may have been coming in with a load of Geoduck? I think(?) there is a opening on right now,but I’m guessing. I haven’t asked anybody if this is true or not?
At any rate,they were coming in,and the Nadon was heading out.
My camera was in my camera case and when I saw these guys coming into the harbour,I got it out quickly. The afterglow was great tonight and I hung around longer than normal waiting for subjects to come by. A fishing boat would of been great,but nobody showed up.
I caught the Nadon heading out of Tofino at sunset. This boat looks like it can move!
