  • Ever been hot but can't jump in the water? Come cool off at Carlyn's new Boat Salon! Our red buckets provide that great 51 degree, seawater for a great cooling sensation on those hot, windless days! .
Are you as brave as these students from Villa Academy? .

  • What a morning! We have warm beautiful weather and started off seeing some Harbor Seals basking in the sun and Bald Eagles flying around as we left Sucia Island. Now we are doing deployments, learning knots, and soon we will look at plankton through the microscopes! #STEMadventures #salishseaexpeditions #sanjuanislands #suciaisland #villaacademy #scienceundersail
  • Starting our first day with Villa Academy! We decided to test if there is more plankton the deeper you go, we raised sails and are about to do our deployments to collect our data! #STEMadventures #salishseaexpeditions #villaacademy #scienceundersail
