Bodega Bay Fisherman’s Festival

In addition to providing the children’s touch tidepool and offering shuttle tours of BML, faculty, staff and students manage and sell beverages with proceeds going to the community. Each year features a different theme, and a “Bathtub Race”, setting the aquatic stage for BML’s reggae-themed floating vessel called “BML & the Whalers,” which won trophies for fastest and best-decorated “bathtub”.
