  • Mark was an excellent captain and gave us a great tour of Port San Luis and some of the sites around the area. You get a great look at the coastline, cliffs, caves, wildlife that you can only get by.....  more »

  • Excellent experience. Got to see whales and dolphins. Captain Mark was a great host. Would definitely recommend using. Thanks again.
  • We had the best time! Captain Dak was on time and an excellent tour guide. He knew how to get us to a place where we were surrounded by whales. We had whales coming within 10 feet of the motor boat. They were breaching, spouting and flipping up their tails. It was a trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend this company for whale watching excursions.
