Sea Life at Starvation Bay – Pender Island, BC, Canada

Starvation Bay is one of our favorite morning spots. We always watch the tide time tables for low tide as low tide exposes the star fish, sea cucumbers and many other interesting things left stranded in tidal pools or clinging to the rocks. It is always fun to see what is left behind. It makes for great photography, and I can’t help but shoot the star fish and sea cucumbers even though I must have a hundred pictures of these sea dwellers.

Below is a gallery of what we found one sunny morning at Starvation Bay, Pender Island. Please click on the images to view them in full size.

  1. thanks for sharing Deb, I know exactly what you mean about already having lots of photos of startfish etc. yet taking more, when I visited it was long before digital photos yet I still took loads of photos as I was sooo facinated by all this ‘life’ that is normally hidden by the sea, Frances

      I think we also keep taking pictures because we are always looking for the “perfect shot”….whatever that really is. I used to have the same problem taking elk pictures in Banff National Park until one day I realized I had hundreds of pictures of elk standing there eating (and elk eating is not exactly a thrilling image! LOL!)

  2. Great photos Deb. Wonderful colour and variety of textures. Starvation Bay is an intriguing name. Any idea of the history behind it? Doesn’t sound good.

      I should really look into the history behind it. I might have to spend a rainy day at the Pender Library or museum, which will absolutely thrill my oldest as he loves libraries and museums.
