This catamaran sailboat provides an intimate dolphin and whale watching experience and comfortably carries about 20 passengers. Perfect for small groups of family and friends looking to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoy each other's company while getting up-close and personal with whales, dolphins, sea lions, pelagic birds, and much more.
Cushioned seating and panoramic views are available in the enclosed cockpit but returning guests know the best place to be is on the bow!
Her specially designed bow with Eye-Spy Dolphin Nets is so close to the water that you feel as though you can touch the animals! You’re also close enough to hear the dolphins vocalize as they swim right under your feet. It’s almost like being in a kayak! There is a restroom available on the boat.
This boat is a crew and passenger favorite. She was the first vessel in Southern California to offer year-round dolphin watching. And it was aboard this catamaran sailboat that Captain Dave filmed his award-winning documentary, “Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California“.
