I have organized several group outings on the Uchuck III from Gold River with Get West Adventures. We opted for a Saturday tour to Friendly Cove to maximize our time at Friendly Cove. We hired Historical Interpreter - Chuck Syme to accompany our group and provide interesting historical information that helped make the trip special for our 41 guests. On arrival at Friendly Cove (Yuquot) Margarita James, representing the Mowachaht / Muchalaht First Nations provided a warm welcome at the "big white church" and provided wonderful commentary on the history of this important location. Chuck Syme then led us on a walking tour past the cemetery and as far as the cabins at the far end of the beach. Of course we also visited the historical lighthouse. Wonderful. The weather was good and overall it made for a great outing. To top off a great day we enjoyed our organized dinner at Clayworks Café in Gold River hosted by Anita and Neil Lawrence. It is always a pleasure doing this trip on the Uchuck III that we arrange through Alberto and Glenda Girotto and the staff at Get West Adventure Cruises.
