What you'll do

Come and experience the difference!! Perfect for small or private groups and we love having families on board! Experiences for private groups now available! Sail the coastline on a private boat and learn about the behaviors of migratory whales, great white sharks, dolphins and other marine life. Watch up close on the bow to see these majestic marine mammals and animals in their natural habitat. California sea lions are a guaranteed sighting! We consistently see pods of dolphins almost on a daily basis (90% chance). Whales will depend on season and migratory patterns, possibility of a great white sighting is rare unless during breeding season. Ask about a combo trip and I'll accommodate to allow some basic fishing in as well! (Will require guests to purchase a one day California fishing license for anyone over the age of 16). Our excursions create many opportunities for close encounters while always adhering to MMPA and NOAA guidelines. If you don't see a date or time open, please message me to check for additional availability. I am often flexible on time and willing to add more trips for your convenience! Read my reviews!

Where you'll be

We'll head out of Dana Point Harbor to observe marine mammals from a sea worthy motor-powered vessel. The region is home to some of the country's greatest dolphin and whale populations, so our direction will depend on them, but we'll be sailing along California's majestic coastline.
