The entire town turns into a crime scene for the weekend - shop keepers hand out clues, and colorful characters and sleuths roam the town trying to solve the mystery. This is really a fun weekend activity for groups of friends and families. Our 13 and 9 year olds do it each year with their grandparents and LOVE IT!

The Gray Whales will soon be returning to Langley. Each year, approximately 20,000 Gray Whales migrate between feeding and breeding grounds in Baja and Alaska. Some come in from the Pacific Ocean into the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Saratoga Passage and actually stay for a few months before heading North. We are extraordinarily lucky in Langley...these amazing creatures feed on the ghost shrimp right at our sea wall. They come up so close that at Prima we are unable to see them as the buildings across block our view! So when we hear the whale bell ringing we know it's time to run across the street for a look. Welcome the Whales day is April 8th - replete with a parade and seaside celebration in honor of this annual migration. Whale watching tours aboard the Mystic Sea run from the Langley marina now through the beginning of May. You are guaranteed (literally) to see a whale. And this year the Victoria Clipper is running whale watching tours with a stop over in Langley for lunch in March and April - check out their website for details and come have lunch with us on the stop over! http://www.clippervacations.
