What you'll do

Come and experience the difference!! Perfect for small or private groups and we love having families on board! Experiences for private groups now available!

Sail the coastline on a private boat and learn about the behaviors of migratory whales, great white sharks, dolphins and other marine life. Watch up close on the bow to see these majestic marine mammals and animals in their natural habitat. California sea lions are a guaranteed sighting! We consistently see pods of dolphins almost on a daily basis (90% chance). Whales will depend on season and migratory patterns, possibility of a great white sighting is rare unless during breeding season.

Ask about a combo trip and I'll accommodate to allow some basic fishing in as well! (Will require guests to purchase a one day California fishing license for anyone over the age of 16).

Our excursions create many opportunities for close encounters while always adhering to MMPA and NOAA guidelines.

If you don't see a date or time open, please message me to check for additional availability. I am often flexible on time and willing to add more trips for your convenience! Read my reviews!

Where you'll be

We'll head out of Dana Point Harbor to observe marine mammals from a sea worthy motor-powered vessel. The region is home to some of the country's greatest dolphin and whale populations, so our direction will depend on them, but we'll be sailing along California's majestic coastline.

Captain Will was a great host from the start to the finish. Loved the experience would do it again. Having your own personal guide where he asked what we wanted to do and go. Saw whales , sealions and caught some fish. Enjoyed the entire trip.

William “Will” was great. He was very flexible and accommodated my request for a different time slot that was more convenient for me. He took the time to communicate with other boats and find whales and dolphins to go observe. Kids loved the experience. Couldn’t have done it without him. On time and very professional. It was awesome.

William’s experience was absolutely wonderful! We had a fantastic time boating across the Pacific ocean to observe rare schools of dolphins swimming along the waves, and just feet away from our boat. It was magical! William also took great care to introduce me to fellow guests and educate me about the local marine life and everything we saw throughout our journey. It was truly a perfect day at sea, and our group felt as though we had the entire boat to ourselves - a VIP experience in every sense of the word. Though there are similar experiences in the area, none offer the level of exclusivity, connection, or expertise that William does. I can’t wait to book it again soon!

I had the pleasure of booking this tour with my brother in early August. First off, William was very prompt with his communication and despite a change in schedule the tour started without difficulty. William was cordial, professional, and friendly. As we left the marina, and out to the Pacific, he made sure to educate us about the area. About 30 min after embarking on our journey, we encountered a medium size pod of dolphins which playfully rode the waves at the bow of the boat for quite some time. Dolphin sightings were consistent from that point on which was fantastic. As a recreational drone pilot, William accommodated my desire to capture some aerial footage of the dolphins as well (which I enjoyed thoroughly). Overall what I loved most about this tour was that it is a very private/exclusive experience. William was able to find the dolphins fairly quickly and we were in their company for nearly the whole experience. I would absolutely book this tour again if I find myself near Dana Point, CA in the future. Thank you William!
