We were fortunate to be the only guests on board today, so we had plenty of opportunity to learn from and talk to Wendy and Helena. They were warm, friendly and great to spend an hour and a half with. We learned about the slough, efforts to protect it, and of course the birds and marine mammals that make the area so special. It’s such a beautiful and calm setting, and it was pretty much just us and some kayakers.
Wendy, as captain, skillfully maneuvered us, and was quick to turn off the motor (is that what electric boats have?) when we’d have an otter or sea lion sighting, to give us a better chance to have it come closer. Helena shared interesting information about the amazing variety of birds and other fun facts about the animals. I have a new appreciation for pelicans!
In addition to enjoying the physical space of the clean and simple catamaran, we were really glad to support a new tour company that uses an electric vessel. We’d happily go out again with this company when we’re back in the area.
