This is so easy to do! We have tried kayaking out of the Santa Cruz Harbor, but it is a stretch getting out and then your time is limited. Access from the Wharf allows you to head right toward the kelp areas with otters, seals and more. Venture Quest makes it easy!
We had an experience we will never forget! We signed up for the whales at moss landing and otters at Elkhorn Slough tour, but spent so much time with the whales we didn't get to the Slough. Barb headed out first to scout the area for whales and found us 4! Our guides, Dave and Bill were very patient with... 更多
We went on a 2.5 hour guiding nature kayak from Santa Cruz wharf. Our guide, Arthur, was really knowledgeable, with a degree in oceanology, and clearly loved all the nature in the bay. He took time to show us everything in the bay, from the sea lions and sea otters, to egrets that could walk on the kelp, to the... 更多
My daughters and I went kayak whale watching this morning with Venture Quest and our guides Dave and Stewart. It was a cold, rainy morning but that didn't stop us from having a great paddle out around the coast near Davenport. The views of that part of the coast are spectacular. We didn't see any whales, but we will be... 更多
Dave, the owner is Professional, safe and just daring enough to keep trips interesting. Try going on a trip with him out of Moss Landing. Awesome wildlife and wonderful staff. I Love kayaking with Venture Quest.
We saw many kinds of sea life and Dave told us about each animal. You can tell that he's been doing these tours for a couple decades because he is very knowledgeable and professional. We had so much fun out there and he made sure we all stayed safe. I want to bring my parents and take this tour again... 更多
This was one of my top sight seeing adventures of my life. We kayaked among giant humpback whales breaching, surfacing, and tail-slapping. Hundreds of dolphins jumped around us as seals and sea otters played. I have never been to a place so alive. We left with an unforgettable day we are recommending to all of our friends. Dave and crew... 更多
My husband, myself and our 3 kids booked a guided tour in double kayaks. Our 11-year old was able to ride in a double with our guide, Bill. Bill was extremely knowledgable in all aspects of marine life that we encountered. He knew every species of bird, fish and mammal that we saw. We had amazing views of sea otters,... 更多
