The bodies of a man and woman were found aboard a commercial fishing boat moored in Santa Barbara Harbor. Police said the woman, in her 20s, and man, in his 30s, bore no signs of violence, but the deaths were being investigated as possible homicides, pending a report from the coroner on the cause of death. The bodies were discovered by a friend of the deceased, police said. Santa Barbara Harbor Master Steve Lewis, who called police, said the boat worked regularly out of Santa Barbara and Avalon.

Small tsunami waves and other unusual "water movements" arrived on the California coast Wednesday following an 8.2 earthquake that struck Chile's northern coast. Although officials stressed that no tsunami warning had been issued for California or the West Coast, the abnormal wave heights, tide fluctuations and current changes may have surprised boaters, they said. The first waves to strike California that were connected to Tuesday night's South American earthquake may have hit La Jolla about 4 a.m., said Bill Knight, an oceanographer with the National Tsunami Warning Center based in Alaska.

More than $2 million for annual dredging of Santa Barbara Harbor was restored to the proposed federal budget. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers told the city that dredging costs were restored in President Bush's proposed fiscal 2005 budget and that the agency would again perform the dredging to keep the harbor operating.

The National Weather Service ended a tsunami advisory for the state of Hawaii around 7:25 a.m. But the first waves connected to the South American earthquake to strike California may have hit La Jolla hours earlier, said Bill Knight, an oceanographer with the National Tsunami Warning Center based in Alaska.

Migrating Pacific gray whales are on the move along the coast of California. Naturalists from Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History will be on board to kick off a season of whale-watching trips to explain behavior and migration habits. Two- to three-hour trips scheduled today depart Redondo Sportfishing in Redondo Beach at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.; Catalina Cruises in Long Beach at 10 a.m.; and an all-day excursion leaves Sea Landing in Santa Barbara at 8 a.m.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday in Santa Barbara on a body found floating in the ocean off Santa Cruz Island near the Scorpion Ranch. A fisherman discovered the body about 8 a.m. Saturday near the Scorpion Anchorage at the southeast end of the island. The area had been closed for the past few weeks after an overnight storm dumped 11 inches of rain, flooding the Scorpion Ranch campground.

The boats shuttling Wednesday between Santa Barbara and Ventura carried stranded commuters, medical supplies and food -- and tears. A hastily organized ocean ferry service transported nearly 1,500 travelers around a 30-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 101 that has been closed by mud and landslides since Monday. Two excursion-boat operators jettisoned whale-watching and island-sightseeing schedules to launch the water-taxi service.

If you think finding affordable housing is tough in this increasingly exclusive coastal retreat, just try to find a place to tie up your boat in the harbor. The marina is booked so tight they've stopped adding names to the 20-year waiting list. Slip permits are so valuable they can add tens of thousands of dollars to a boat's sale price. "It's difficult to sell a boat in Santa Barbara if you don't have a [slip] permit," said John Bridley, the waterfront director.

In a state where older buildings are often treated as if they were disposable stage sets, Santa Barbara is different. Over the last decade, more than 50 historic structures--ranging from the world-famous mission to a pair of bandstands, fig trees and watering troughs--have been declared official municipal landmarks, making it illegal to alter or demolish them. These days, however, a proposal to add the seaside Los Banos del Mar Pool to the roster is making waves.

The Harbor College football team's hopes of an unbeaten season were dashed Saturday night by Santa Barbara, as the visiting Vaqueros used two big fourth quarter plays to help score a 34-14 Western State Conference victory at Harbor. Harbor, which rallied for 17 points in the fourth quarter last week to defeat Compton, 24-21, trailed 17-7 going into the final quarter on Saturday.
