Great Value, Life long memories!

Great value. crystal clean boat, friendly, competent, knowledgeable crew. Nice snack bar. Viewed several large great white sharks feet from the boat close to shore(50-100 ft).WoW! Check out the pics on facebook. 2.5 hours on boat was perfect amt of time on water. Five stars!

Not Just a Safari but an Adventure!!

I had an awesome time. I went on the morning Whale trip, loved it so much I also went on the afternoon Shark trip. The crew was very knowledgeable and I learned a lot about whales, sharks and many other sea creatures!

Great tour!!

We were fortunate to see tons of wildlife yesterday! Crew member, Kaelyn, commentary was best I have heard on a tour like this - informative, spread out so you could digest the facts, and enthusiastic. The crew was having fun and this is contagious. Brown pelicans, jellyfish, rare sun fish, harbor porpoise, see lions, otters, anchovies, many birds

Ash Scattering

We discovered Sea Spirit while searching Monterey and Santa Cruz for a charter to scatter my in laws' ashes. After speaking with a long list of possibilities I called Raina and was certain this was the crew for us. Raina and Captain Darci were professional, caring, respectful and absolutely perfect, gently guiding us through a process that was completely foreign to us. It was a beautiful experience and I can only imagine how wonderful it would be to do a more recreational trip with them.

An Amazing Adventure!

We have done many whale watching trips in the past and this is by far my favorite. The boat itself was very clean and the setup insures that you never miss anything going on. Our party ranged in age from 3 to 80 and everyone enjoyed the trip.
