Giving Back: Meal Packing Events

When you purchase a whale watching ticket, we feed a hungry child through Kids Around the World and our meal packing events.

Doing our best to do our part

Since 2008 Captain Dave’s has sponsored the purchase and packing of well over one million meals with Kids Around the World, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping children and families who have been affected by war, poverty, illness, and natural disasters. Kids Around the World have provided much needed nourishing food to children in 18 different countries, including the U.S. and developing countries across the globe.

Ongoing Contributions: DVD and Book Sales

Half the sales from Captain Dave’s award winning documentary film “Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California” and his award winning book “Lily, A Gray Whale’s Odyssey” continue to support children in need and help protect dolphins and whales.

Partnering with World Vision

Prior to our partnership with Kids Around the World, we partnered with World Vision where half the proceeds from Capt. Dave’s documentary film were used to help a small village called Gangawako located in Malawi (Central Africa). The village has about 1,100 people, many of them orphaned by AIDS. Some of the money was used to help build a better irrigation system to increase their harvests and some of it was used for health care, school supplies and education.
