The ocean is the one place I I feel the most spiritually connected. I've explored waters around the globe, yet I'm always drawn back to the Southern California Pacific Coast. There's something special about these waters, and the marine life we find here.

For me, a perfect day is cruising on calm water, sharing a glimpse of the wildlife that makes this place so special.

Amazing hospitality and very friendly! Weren’t able to find any whales due to the off-season, but we saw a pod of about 200 dolphins swimming within feet of our boat! Amazing experience

We signed up for this as a fun way to get outside and enjoy the afternoon. We didn't realize we were actually going to find a huge pod of dolphins and get to watch them swim right along side the boat. Overall great experience.

This was a great 2+ hour boat ride out into the great North Pacific. We saw a grey whale and a large group (20+) of bottle nose dolphins. On the way back we saw a group of seals hanging out on a buoy, Nick was very informative and knew how to interact with all these beautiful mammals. Great educational adventure.

Had such a great time on this whale watching experience. The host Nick was very motivated to find whales and did an awesome job doing it. It was a comfortable, nice, and cozy boat . The views were beautiful. I would definitely recommend doing this. Had a really good time.
