The resort had a fleet of Boston Whaler dinghys available for the guests to use. Nearly every day we would take one of the dinghys out into the sound to either go snorkeling, or just enjoy motoring around seeing the sites. I really enjoyed this activity, and Emily started calling me 'Captain Bear'.

While out boating around we got close to the clipper ship that was achhored in the North Sound. We were told that there are only 2 of these particular ships in the world.
The Fat Virgin Cafe, located down near the dinghy dock, is actually not part of Biras Creek, however Biras will give you a voucher for $20 to eat dinner there if you get tired of the dinners at the restaurant. We talked about doing this, but just couldn't pass up the fine dining at the Biras Restaurant. We did take the dinghy over for a drink, though!
Included with our resort package was a sunset sail aboard the Mary Irene. We were joined by several other guests who were on the same package. They served us rum punch and we learned a lot about the area from the captain and his wife.
