About Us

 We are a family business that is passionate about sharing the natural beauty of the central coast with our guests. We moved here in 2007, arriving in our sailboat / home after 6 months of traveling from the US Virgin Islands via the Panama Canal and along the coast of Central America. We fell in love with the beauty of  San Luis Obispo County and for the first time in our lives put down some roots to stay. Jennifer is a professor at Cal Poly State University teaching chemistry and helps in more ways than I could list here, she is the behind the scenes problem solver. Sierra is my daughter and the head of the I.T. department. She is a big inspiration as to why it is important to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Then myself, Mark, I will be your naturalist / captain on what we hope will be a wonderful boating experience. I am USCG licenced master of ships both sail and steam to 100 gross tons. In my lifetime I have taken over 17,000 guests on one type of maritime voyage or another. My experience with boating ranges from white water rafting / kayaking on some the worlds wildest and most remote rivers to sailing and powered vessel research expeditions. We pride ourselves on running safe and educational boating tours that we are sure you and your family will enjoy.

The Pacific Flyer

Our boat the "Pacific Flyer" is a 28 FT power catamaran that offers a much smoother rider than conventional boats and is more stable when we stop to observe wildlife. Everyone that has stepped aboard has mentioned the fantastic ride that these boats are famous for as we slice through the waves which gives one the feeling of flying over the water. This smooth ride allows us to travel fast and have more quality time with the whales! She is well maintained, has comfortable custom seating for 6 and sports a pair of new 150 hp motors. She is built to the highest standards and with foam filled compartments she is considered to be unsinkable.

The Spirit

"Spirit" is a well founded 43 ft Beneteau sailboat that was designed and built to safely travel the world. She is stable and powerful before the wind and a real joy to sail. With our 6 passenger maximum there is enough room for everyone to stretch out and relax while we enjoy our sailing adventure about the bay.
