Dolphins, Sea Lions ... and waves today!

When we took off for the 11:30 AM tour with Mark $ Ann, Eddie & Amber (Happy First Anniversary tomorrow!), Penny & Baldwin, Jim & Chris, Michelle & Elsie, and Sam, we had to go through a few waves, it was fun, and wet, and we made it! At the horizon we saw a bunch of sea gulls and pelicans on the water, surrounded by a lot of splashes, meaning school of fishes ... and DOLPHINS. So we went straight to them, and we saw them. Perfect timing. Then we had a few visitors around us, 3 sea lions hanging there and checking us out. That was cool. We went to the caves, but the swell didn't allow us to get inside the cave safely, so we looked at the sea lions on the rocks and came back before landing with a wave (some of us dry, some of us not so dry (they loved it!)). A great tour with great and fun people!

Dozens of sharls today!

I went out for the 11:30 and 2:00 tours today, and we saw dozens of leopard sharks at the Marine Room. So now we know, the sharks are back in town!
Abigail, 9 years old kept saying "it is so cool" on the 11:30 tour, she loved the cave and the sharks!
This afternoon, we even saw dolphins, that made Michaela's day! Mark, Colleen and Gabriel were happy with the sharks and loved going in the cave!
Plenty of Sea Lions on the rocks too.
Great day today.

We saw our FIRST SHARK !

we saw for the first time this season a Leopard shark! Not for long, but that is a good sign! It was about 3 feet. The water was warm, the sky a bit overcast ... okay, not a bit, a lot! But we went in the cave and saw plenty of Sea Lions and DOLPHINS!
