The first on April 15 might be a little hard to find some open water but the one Oct 8 should be good as long as the weather co-operates.
I got the week off in Oct. because of the full moon, this is just a bonus.

So here is an update so you can plan where you want to be.
It is actually going to give you lots of chances to get good full moon shots.
The total eclipse begins at 06:25 on the 8th.

So you can get full moon rising on the evening of the 7th.

Cool so now where do you park your assets.....

Edit if you click on the Date (left column ) to shows a very easy to follow graph that will help you make your plans.

It's practice time for the super moon and lunar eclipse of October.
So here are some more tips to help as you practice with Sept. moon.

How to read degrees from the horizon
http://oneminuteastronomer.com/860/measuring-sky/

And if you click on the left column of the date it will give you an easy to follow graph.
You can move the moon with your cursor along the graph to match the time you looked and to where the moon is.
It is all so simple..... :roll:
( I'm a rookie at this too! :oops: )

Now for me and this link I am able to check the date I have had the full moon in past years and will be able to (hopefully) choose "the right spot" in the Canyon.
Weather dependant.... :doh:

I must admit that these links and graphs really helped me understand how and where to look when I went out to practice to night. No camera just the compass the moon and me.

EDit warning! If you take your I Pad out with you, keep it away from your compass, It will affect whcih way the needle is pointing.
