The Madaket bay tour boat passes other boats between Samoa and Eureka on Friday afternoon. The boat, built in 1909 in Fairhaven, is the last remaining vessel of a seven vessel fleet that once transported families and workers around Humboldt Bay. The ferries (known then as launches) would operate 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, each carrying about 1,500 people a day around the shore.
