Whale watching is available with us most of the year here on the Central Coast.  Humpback whales which are very playful come to our bay from April through November to feed on the abundant small fish that thrive in the pristine waters of San Luis Bay. California Grey Whales that are migrating from the Arctic to Baja California, a journey of over 5 thousand miles each way are here for us to see from January through May.  Two hour trips to go see the whales are departing daily at 9:00 am and 11:30 in the spring, summer and fall. Winter departure times very by the day.  Other times are also available by request for private tours. We only take out 6 people at a time to make sure everyone has the best possible view and this leads to our tours selling out on most weekends year round. So please make your reservations early to avoid being disappointed.

Two hour whale watching tours aboard our amazing powerboat the "PACIFIC FLYER" a 28 ft power catamaran offer a unique opportunity to experience whale watching as it should be. Unlike other boats we only take 6 passengers out at a time to insure everyone has enough space at the rail for an unobstructed, front row position when we stop to observe the whales. Our boat is a 28 FT power catamaran that offers a much smoother rider than conventional boats and is more stable when we stop to observe the whales. 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! Catamarans being exceptionally stable make this a photographers dream charter boat. Your captain Mark Kocina is a USCG licenced master and an excellent naturalist that has been leading outdoor educational adventures throughout the world for 39 years. If you are interested in learning about the whales and the marine environment then you are sure to enjoy the many fascinating insights about the their lives and migrations that we will share with you during the journey. 

 

For the past 2 years we have found that our powerboat, the amazing "Pacific Flyer" has enabled us to find whales more easily than we did on our sailboat "SPIRIT". Here are the percentages month by month of tours that saw at least one whale while on a tour aboard the "Pacific Flyer" from 2018 to the present.  January 88%  February 93%  March 95%  April 79%  May 95%  June 98%  July 97%  August 99%  September 99%!!  October 97%  November 95% and we close for December.  

 

Please note there is no restroom aboard this boat.
