Join us today for an unforgettable boating experience on the pristine waters of San Luis Bay the hidden gem of the Central Coast. On all of our boat tours you will see an abundance of wildlife and learn a bit about each animal from our Captains that are also well trained as naturalists. Whales are here most of the year and we offer powerboat excursions to go and see them and when feasible our sailing tours will also visit them. Our boats have comfortable seating with plenty of room to stretch out and walk about as we are underway and a front row position for everyone as we visit with the animals.
