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.
