Most likely your skipper will be Ken Stagnaro. A Santa Cruz native, Ken was skipper of a U.S. Coast Guard search and rescue vessel in the San Francisco bay area in the early 1980’s. Later, Ken returned home to Santa Cruz to run the family boats. Ken has been running whale and sea life excursions, scenic cruises and private charters for over 20 years. His knowledge of the Monterey Bay is matched by few. Ken also has performed our trips narrative for many years; his insights are both fascinating and educational.

Your friendly crew people are all experienced hands. Most are native to the Monterey Bay area, and have first hand working knowledge of our local marine environment. They are dedicated to making your trip fun and memorable.
