Isn't that a little later (at least a week) than normal?

p.s. I hardly recognized you with the new avatar. :)

I don't know the average or normal first date for the Ranger III (it's always at the mercy of weather and maintenance issues) but Island operations began this year on April 21st with the NPS LCM Angelique.

Still, the NPS did announce that the park was open on April 16th. (see further below on the Facebook link above). I've wondered from time to time if any private boaters make use of the April dates. I'd be up for it.
