The water is beautiful and calm today. The weather has been perfect with only a very slight breeze and warm sunny temperatures. It has felt like August all day and we expect it to continue again tomorrow. Tim and the group set out on WASCO today to take advantage of the incredible conditions. After a nice leisurely cruise, Tim found five or six Grey Whales, several Sea Otters and some Stellar Sea Lions out on the Plover reefs. As we leave Halloween behind and move towards the Pacific Rim Oyster Festival, we are getting excited for the chance to take in all of the activities and of coarse slurp back as many oysters as possible. There will be many great packages with some of the local hotels and there is absolutely no better way to recover from the gala or a belly full of oysters than a soak in the Hot Springs. We will still be having daily departures so make your plans and book early as it is sure to be a busy weekend.
