seal can be spotted too.

Henderson Bay. It's a popular spot due to its easy beach access, just
steps away from the parking spots along SR 302. During warmer weather
The Spit area can get quite busy with activity from beach-comber
families, pets and their owners, swimmers, boat launchers and the
occasional sail boarders.
