Trip departure times are often customizable, especially with groups of 4 or more. Send me a message if you don't see a time that works for you and we may be able to work something out! I would like to take you on a tour of our beautiful coastline in Port San Luis. As a marine biologist and kelp forest ecology expert you can expect to learn a thing or two while aboard my 36 ft sailboat "Dove IV". I will give you perspective from the ocean of the marine wildlife, including sea otters, sea lions, and sometimes dolphins, seals, whales, and sharks! I will tell you the story of sea urchins and why our kelp forests, which are among the most unique and ecologically diverse coastal ecosystems on the planet, are disappearing! Once aboard Dove IV I will offer you a complimentary beverage with a selection of local wines and beers or soft drinks, along with a tasty snack. We will tour out along the pier and then down towards Shell Beach. This tour is within the protection of Port San Luis and so we can almost always do it regardless of ocean conditions offshore.

Captain Doug is a marine biologist and natural resource interpreter with a passion for exploration and adventure. His life revolves around water - from working as a research diver along California's coast to guiding people down whitewater rapids on the Trinity River to researching the marine ecosystems of the most remote island on the planet with National Geographic. His dream is to be able to share the joy of sailing and hopefully depart some greater understanding of the marvels of nature on his guests.

We will visit the local sea otter community and then sail out along the pier towards the old whaling station on Smith Rock. Then we'll head down the breakwater and back down towards Avila and Shell Beach. The timing and exact style of every tour changes baed on environmental conditions.
There are no harbor slips in Port San Luis. To get to the boat we take a short dinghy ride on an inflatable boat out to the boat. It is a big step up to the boat from the dinghy.
