It is that time of year again when the Humpback whales have left our bay to head south and the Grey Whales are not yet here so we are cancelling all of our whale watching tours until January 15, 2020. We are still offering our fun and educational 1 hour coastal explorer tours daily for $45 per person and of course private tours are available anytime we can fit your group in to the schedule.

Whale watching is available most of the year on the Central Coast with Humpbacks here from March through November and the California Grey Whales are here from January through May.  Two hour trips are departing daily at various times which are usually at 10:00 am and again at 12:30 in winter and 9:00 am and 11:30 in the spring and summer.  Other times are also available by request. We only take out 6 people at a time to make sure everyone has the best possible view. The price is $89 per person except holidays which are $99. All ages 4 and up are welcome on this tour.

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.
