We had a nice time with Captain Rich. He took us to see the sea lions and harbor seals and was very knowledgable about the local fauna. We enjoyed being out on the boat.

My wife and I booked a morning trip while on our honeymoon. The weather was perfect and the bay way like a sheet of glass. We plan to do the sunset tour when we return for our anniversary!
