Whale Watching

December has been a historically low month for whale sightings around San Luis Bay so we do not offer whale watching for December. Once the whales return in January we hope you will join us for a unique two hour whale watching adventure with a knowledgeable naturalist / captain aboard our very comfortable, stable and fast 28 ft power catamaran the "Pacific Flyer". Reservations are available online for $95 per person or private trips for $550. We have a 6 passengers maximum limit on our trips so it is never crowded and always fun.

I would personally like to invite you join me for a very unique whale watching adventure upon the pristine waters of San Luis Bay. What sets this adventure apart from other boat tours? First is that I only take out 6 passengers at a time aboard a 28 ft power catamaran 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. I believe we have chosen the perfect  boat to for these whale watching adventures as our 28 ft power catamaran is the most stable boat in this size range and offers a much smoother ride than any other boat I have ever been on. This lets us get to the whales faster and spend more quality time with them than larger, slower boats. Then our bay is just 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. 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 11,000 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.
