June is the end of the whale watching season in Port Gardner Bay and the sailing route will take in the most likely places to encounter any migrating Gray Whales. Small Craft Advisory or adverse conditions may cancel the sail event, at the skipper’s discretion. Please bring non-marking sole shoes, your personal floatation device (PFD) if you have one, and appropriate outerwear based on the days weather forecast. Be prepared for both cool temps, wind and rain, and, moderately warm weather. April, May and June are transition months and it is possible we could have highly variable weather conditions during the sail. You may bring any food that is “day sail boating compatible” (does not require heating, will not make a mess on deck) if you wish.
