Folkerts and his crew on Jet Skis and the Noreen Kay, captained by Bob and Marie Mattson, skirted the town and tucked up behind adjacent Killisnoo Island, the site of a once-bustling fishing town. The plan was to camp on the bear-infested Admiralty side of the pass, a prospect most of the crew found sobering at least. But they spotted Whalers Cove, a sport-fishing camp specializing in salmon and halibut fishing, and the owners lured them in with unbeatable room rates, hot showers and a meal plan. A white-coated chef waved from the deck behind the kitchen. Folkerts' crew would eat well that night. The bears would not.
