About your host

I am a Coast Guard licensed captain, and for over 20 years I've had the privilege of taking passengers out to see the magnificent whales and huge pods of dolphins that live year-round off the coast of Southern California. When I’m not on the water showing passengers amazing sea life, I’m actively involved with whale disentanglement. I'm also an award winning filmmaker and author.

Where you'll be

We depart from beautiful Dana Point Harbor, a small marina with quick access to the open ocean. Dana Point is conveniently located mid-way between Los Angeles and San Diego, just a few minutes from Laguna Beach, and only 33 miles from Disneyland. It's not uncommon to see playful dolphins or jumping whales right outside the harbor! The direction we go will depend upon the wildlife. Usually, we only need to go 3 to 5 miles offshore.
