Every summer, like some of the migrating species we love to observe, we head up to Alaska and do some fishing, exploring, diving, and guiding. It's been a wonderful summer filled with fish tales and fun times had with clients and friends. With the changing of the seasons and the welcoming of fall, it's time we said thanks and see you next time. Pretty soon we head south to Baja, where the warmer waters of the Sea of Cortez confluence with the cooler waters of the Pacific and are home to a diversity of thriving sea life. September brings the abundance of Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Dorado, Snapper/Grouper, & Roosterfish. The weather is comfortably hot and the water is nice and warm. The unique scape of Baja's mountains, desserts, and oceans are like no other place on earth. The Baja peninsula was formed by the San Andreas fault in a process that took an estimated ten million years with volcanic activity and earthquakes of incredible magnitude. The Sea of Cortez was born, and it was once said that it is "The aquarium of the world." -Jacques Cousteau. We are looking forward to a great fall & hope to see you there!
What better place to be than out on the middle of the sea or camping on a desolate beach, gazing up at the starry sky, all while listening to the waves crash?
Well tonight, Tuesday, June 30th would be a fantastic evening for it. Venus and Jupiter are, Nasa says, "a jaw-dropping one third of a degree apart." That's less than the width of our full moon. Our sources say it is the closest they'll come to one another in the current 24-year cycle.
These are the kind of events that could add to making your trip with us extra special. There's nothing like laying under the stars on deck of a gently rocking boat, or stretched out on the sand. Eclipses, meteor showers, comets, and once in a lifetime sightings in the sky can make an evening outdoors a memorable one.
