    Anybody got a link to a map showing this bay? A buddy has a cabin up there and I can't locate an area map that shows the bay. Thanks a bunch.

    Dave, Thunder Bay is located approximately 7 kilometres west of Saltery Bay (and near the north side at the opening of the inlet). I paddled there about 4 years ago. It's an amazing place that I want to go back to -- all the sealife there is huge. It's like they're all on steroids. We saw sunstars that were 3 feet across and watched crabs 15 feet below us in crystal clear water.

    Dave, I couldn't find anything online but I've sent you a Private Message with a digital file of the area.

    Hope this helps.
