Problems with our computer network

Just thought I should let everyone know that we are having major I.T. problems today. A repair technician is on the way, and we hope to be back up-and-running at full speed by tomorrow. Apologies if you are waiting for any quotations or responses to emails. We are currently unable to access our emails. Thanks for your patience!

What's under the water?

Ever stop to think what's under the water when you're out sailing round the Gulf Islands? It's so easy to get caught up in the beauty above sea level: the light breeze tickling your skin, the sun's warm, syrupy rays comforting you, and Mt. Baker looming in the distance... The water looks so cold and uninviting that it's easy to believe that what's under it is the same.

I stopped by the Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre this afternoon and my eyes popped at all the colours and the creatures inhabiting our local waters. I'm going to make it a priority to go scuba diving sometime soon! Island Cruising offers diving as an add-on to your yacht charter, so if you're interested in seeing the creatures in the pics below for yourself, ask us how to book a dive as part of your next charter!
