“God truly showed his work on this day; from the extraordinary beautiful weather, amazing volunteers, and truly special families. It was a day I will certainly never forget.” – Shore Volunteer, Yaquina Bay


“We had amazing Capt. and First Mate. They did such a great job of teaching our son about the ocean, charts, GPS, fish and crab identification, how to best release a starfish that we caught…. so many things, they were patient and kind. Over the top experience!” – Parent of Participant, Yaquina Bay
