    Duffy Electric Boat Bay Cruise

    Climb aboard the Duffy of San Diego, a luxurious 22' Bay Island Duffy Electric Boat! Silent and eco-friendly, this boat will take you through the calm Mission Bay waters towards Sail Bay, Santa Barbara Cove, and Mariners Basin. You'll also cruise by the luxurious Paradise Point and Catamaran Resorts, as well as the Mission Bay Yacht Club and Bahia Resort -- which is further than where any other local charters will take you. As you enjoy your cruise, you'll encounter sea lions, local and migratory birds, and -- if you're lucky -- dolphins! You'll also be able to head to the spacious cabin of the boat, where there's a great sound system and a Surrey top with clear 360-degree views. The top can be open or closed depending on the weather. Plus, all captains are US Coast Guard licensed!

    Dolphin & Whale Signature Safari (2.5 Hr)

    Feel like you need a little more porpoise in your life? If you answered "No, I want to see whales and dolphins," then this is the sea-faring safari for you! You'll set sail on high-tech catamarans, in search of some of the year-round dolphins and whales famous for populating the waters off of Dana Point. What could you see? December through May the annual migration of Gray Whales between the waters off Alaska and the lagoons of Baja, CA takes place. In the months between May and November Blue Whales, the largest animal on earth, can be seen. And throughout the year Fin Whales, Minke Whales, Humpback Whales, and occasionally Orcas visit. Rare whales that could be seen at any time include Bryde's Whales, Sei Whales, Sperm Whales, Pilot Whales, and False Killer Whales. And playful dolphins, some in mega-pods of up to 10,000, are seen off Dana Point all year round too! Only aboard the catamaran Manute'a can you see dolphins underwater, without getting wet, in our Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods. Capt. Dave's original catamaran DolphinSafari is so close to the water that it's like viewing dolphins and whales from a kayak. Both boats feature our Eye-Spy Dolphin Nets to give you a really up close encounter! Lily, our luxury power catamaran, features cushioned bow seating, upper deck with wind and sun protection, and a beautifully appointed interior. Mrs. Captain Dave's yummy triple fudge brownies are served as a special treat on all trips. Along the way, naturalists will treat you with insights about how these amazing creatures live and play. It's going to be a whale of a good time!
