Friendly heads up: Give these ships a wide berth, they tend to turn for no apparent reason. Some of them tow crap on long cables. Channel 16 is your friend.

Navy Gearing Up for World’s Largest Exercise Off Southern California

Twenty-six nations, 45 ships, five submarines, more than 200 aircraft, and 25,000 personnel will participate in the biennial Rim of the Pacific exercise beginning next week in the Pacific.
RIMPAC, the world’s largest international maritime exercise, is scheduled for June 30 through Aug. 4 around the Hawaiian Islands and off Southern California.
The exercise will include amphibious operations in Southern California, and feature a Harpoon missile shoot from the USS Coronado on its maiden deployment.

Thanks for the heads up. Like its not going to be crowded enough out there this weekend. Seems a little strange that with this excercise, SCI is open for fishing all weekend according to the website so far. :2gunsfiring_v1:

Been out there a few times the last couple of weeks and you could se them prepping for this. Lots of choppers, carriers, smaller navy vessels and some crazy amphibious vessels.

Saw at least 5 Navy boats out last week along with a couple choppers. Saw some huge oil slicks too, not sure who is to blame for that but we called 'em in to the CG and they hadn't seen them yet.

Thanks. I was wondering why there were several Aircraft US carriers and 2 Chinese medical ships docked in Pearl Harbor when we were on O' Ahu last week.
