A green sea turtle has been seen today!

Twice today the tours were able  to spot a green sea turtle, they also saw the Leopards sharks and went into the cave. Though no one could get a clear picture at the turtle, most people saw it before it dove down.

Ziggy, our new mascot!

Meet Ziggy, our mascot.

Today I took Ziggy on a single kayak, we stayed in the shallows, all he wanted is jump and run in the waves. after 15 minutes of running around, I got him to jump in and out of the boat, still in the shallows, so hopefully next time he will be willing to stay in the boat so we can paddle out and he can join us on tours!

The water temp is rising!

Finally, the water temp is on the rise, 68 degrees today (surface temp of course). Small waves to go through at the take off, refreshing, and fun for all (yes, even for Daisy the Basset Hound)!

We are OPEN!

Fantastic month of April so far; we are happy to say that we opened for the 2014 season April 2nd, with 2 tours daily, and so far we were able to get into the Clam on most of the tours (note that the conditions can change anytime in April).  The afternoon is a little bit windier than the morning, and the water temp is on the cool side (around 60 degrees), but the Sea Lions are basking already around the caves; yesterday on the morning tour we spotted one Leopard shark (it is only one, but it means that they are coming in). Two days ago two juvenile Sea Lions were on the edge inside the Clam, that was a treat! The underwater visibility is pretty good at the caves, we could see the Garibaldi and even in some places the bottom.
