Dolphin & Whale Watching

Dolphin & Whale Watching

Captained by experienced USCG licensed personnel, our ex-Secret Service Zodiac Hurricane has been retrofitted specifically for coastal tours and sightseeing use. Zodiac rigid hull inflatable boats are known for their low center of gravity and handling in rough seas. The Hurricane model was designed specifically for military use, with a deep V to handle larger swells and heavier waters and a rubber collar which not only provides stability and protects passengers and cargo from spray but also supplies reserve buoyancy and acts as an energy sink to soften the ride. The low profile of the boat not only decreases the chance of sea-sickness, it also allows you to get much closer to the dolphins and whales, creating a more intimate and interactive experience.

Private Surf Lesson in North San Diego

Special Offer

Private Surf Lesson in North San Diego

Surfing can be the most incredible experiences. Surfing takes practice, patience, and will leave you with a better appreciation for the ocean. You will meet me down at the beach where I will have the surfboard, leash, and a wetsuit to keep you nice and warm! After going over safety precautions and etiquette about being a beginner surfer, we will begin teaching you proper paddling technique, the pop-up, as well as how to reach the lineup. Once we have gone over the basics on the beach and we practice a couple times on the sand, we are ready to hit the water! I will be with you the entire time, not surfing like so many other instructors do these days. I want your time to be spent truly learning how to surf and not just struggling while I get paid to have fun! I begin my lessons helping new students get into waves to practice their pop-up, giving critique when needed. After a few good practice waves, I usually start "helping" less and less, not pushing you into waves as hard.
