A tailor-made experience you won't find elsewhere
We designed our cruises to be more than just another whale watching San Diego 'cattle-boat' (where you feel herded along and swindled the whole time).
You won't be promised any specific species and we'll work with nature to give you the most personalized wildlife watching experience you've ever had.
Plus, our crew will care for you like family and we'll never nickel-and-dime you for blankets, seasickness medication, or a ride on captain's quarters.

LOCAL SCUBA CREW
Our crew is comprised of ocean savvy captains and scuba divers
Snacks & Bevs
