What sets this excursion apart from other boat tours you may ask? First, we only take out 6 passengers at a time so that everyone has a front row seat as we engage with the whales and other wildlife. I have been a captain / naturalist / adventure travel guide for over 40 years and really like this intimate setting where we can converse about the animals as we find them. Second, We believe that we have chosen the perfect boat to for these whale watching adventures as our 28 ft power catamaran "PACIFIC FLYER" is the most stable boat in this size range and offers a much smoother ride than any other boat we have ever been on. This gets us to the whales faster and allows us to spend more quality time with them than larger, slower boats. Third, our bay is one of the best places on the coast of California to see whales as it is a prolific producer of anchovies. This brings the whales in to feed on them and in between feedings the Humpback Whales are famous the world over for their playful behaviours such as breaching, tail slapping and pectoral slapping. Forth, local experience matters when looking for whales and we are the only boat tour company in the area to have been in continuous, year round operation since 2012. In that time I have personally taken over 11,500 guests out onto the waters of San Luis Bay to see the whales and those guests have rated us as the best boat tour in the area on both Tripadvisor and Yelp every year. So if you are looking for a knowledgeable, friendly captain to escort your family out for a safe, educational and memorable whale watching experience please join us for a tour. You are welcome to bring your own drinks and snacks.
