The boat

The Original Ultimate and Unmatched Whale and Dolphin Watching experience of the coastal waters of Newport Beach, Orange County, CA with Captain Nick! Other boats attempt to provide similar services, do not settle for less when you can have the best!

Never crowded, we limit all of our trips to 6 passengers for your comfort and attention! Our Super Duty Commercial OVER built 26' fiberglass (non inflatable) boats perform better than any other in their class.

Fast, comfortable, safe and fun - our speed allows us access to whales and dolphins that other's don't have, closer encounters with the wildlife, and we get more time to spend with them!

Year Round Whale and Dolphin Watching

Connective, Interactive and Intimate.

Faster boats = more dolphins and whales

Capt. Nicholas
Captain Nicholas Nagel has over 20 years of experience on the water to share with you. Having grown up on the East Coast, his offshore adventures have charted thousands of miles navigating the depths of the Mid Atlantic to the bountiful waters of the Pacific. His love for the ocean and fascination of boats, motivated him to earn his USCG Master Captain’s credentials at the youngest possible age of 19. Despite a promising Ivy league education at Dartmouth, Captain Nick always returned to a life on the water. With saltwater pumping through his veins, his resume of operating, managing, and outfitting boats of all sizes, has given him the knowledge, passion, and ambition to found East Meets West Excursions, located on beautiful Balboa Island – we are Newport Beach’s premier Dolphin and Whale Watching tour / Happy Hour Sunset cruise charter boat! We specialize in charters of 6 person(s) or less so we can provide you with the comfort and attention you deserve. Our 5 star reputation is mandatory, not an exception.
