Whale & Nature Cruise
Welcome aboard! Our Whale watching and Summer Nature Cruises are both educational and fun for the whole family!
We will cruise the bait barges and meet the seals, and then proceed to the kelp beds just outside the harbor mouth. There we can see sea otters, all variations of sea birds, and who knows what else.
From there, we head strait out in search of whales!
Pricing is all inclusive and includes lunch, sodas, snacks.
PER PASSENGER BOOKING THRU AIRBNB $100 PER PERSON
PRIVATE GROUP BOOKING 1000 FOR 12 PASSENGERS FOR 3 HRS.
$200 per additional hour.
The whales are free to go wherever they like, paying no attention to the calendars we humans create. Varying ocean currents, an "El Nino" or "La Nina" year with atypical water temperatures and location and availability of food can bring them into areas at times other than the typical ones shown above.
In other words, there is no guarantee we will see whales every trip. But there are dolphins, seabirds, sunfish, kelp beds, sea lions, and seals to keep us company.
October through February: Grey whales southbound from Alaska to Mexico and can be seen along the entire coast, swimming offshore.
February through April: Grey whales are northbound from Mexico to Alaska. Mothers with calves travel last, staying closer to the shore and moving slowly, making this one...MORE of the best times to see them.

April to early November: Humpback whales along the central California coast.
July through October: Minke whales, mostly in southern California
