Outside Barrow Island Sunday June 26 2011 @ 0830
Noted wave going against swell, seas and current.(tide)
No vessel passed by to cause the wave
To our starboard (your right) there is a breakwater just out of the picture so no vessel can travel past us from port to starboard.
This is inside the barrow harbour limits which is inside an A class marine reserve, all travel is restricted to 4kn only !
Vessel movement is strictly controlled by the Barrow Island Port Control
As stated before no vessel did or was allowed to pass before us.
No ground movement noted but we would not feel ground movement in a vessel.
Barrow Island ahead of us prevents any wave from having a long fetch
Wave continued off in a SE flow toward mainland
Appears to be a natural phenomenon of unknown cause
Any Ideas?

BTW I have been working at sea for 11yrs
