Special Guest Narrator
Considered the voice of youth in aviation, Matt Stumpf is one of the leading experts in aviation history and aerobatics.
Since 2016 “Shorty” has had the opportunity to be the voice of aviation throughout Southern California and the west coast at events such as the Riverside Airshow, March Field Air and Space Expo, The Planes of Fame Air Show, Apple Valley Airshow, and many more. Recently he was invited to narrate the National Championship Air Races and Air Show in Reno, Nevada, for the Jet and Unlimited classes, for NBC Sports.
Matt takes a unique approach to narrating the amazing aerobatics on display at the Pacific Airshow. You’ll learn insider stories about the pilots and planes and enjoy the history of the airshow told through Matt’s high energy, often comedic, commentary.
About the Boat
Lily is 65 feet of comfort and luxury. She is a fast and stable power catamaran with a maximum capacity of 49 passengers, although it’s limited to just 36 guests for this unique excursion to and from the Pacific Airshow.
Lily’s first floor features a heated and air-conditioned main cabin and a fully equipped galley. You’ll feel at home relaxing on cushioned bar stools, the sofa, or at the dinette. Panoramic windows on both sides of the cabin offer breathtaking views of the ocean, coastline, and animals. Thanks to our underwater bow camera, a large TV provides underwater views of bow-riding dolphins next to our boat. Also located on the first floor is the guest bathroom.
You’ll also want to head upstairs to the second floor to enjoy fresh air on the covered upper sundeck that offers protection from the elements. Place your refreshments on the cocktail tables and relax on cushioned benches while marveling at the aerobatics on display at Pacific Airshow!
Be sure to visit the fully enclosed pilothouse, where you can relax at a table with cushioned seating and chat with the Captain. The climate-controlled pilothouse features wrap-around windows, so you won’t miss a minute of the action!
After leaving the pilothouse, spend some time relaxing on our specially designed bow. This area offers wrap-around cushioned seating, cushioned backrests, cup holders, and rails enclosed with Lexan® glass for wind protection. Supreme comfort and convenience are readily available wherever you turn during our unique Pacific Airshow excursion!
And don’t forget to stop by our micro-museum featuring whale and dolphin artifacts! You’ll be amazed by our realistic life-size, common dolphin, and stunning photographic art that immerses you in our undersea world. And last (but not least), Mrs. Capt. Dave’s famous triple fudge brownies are served as a special treat when you return to the dock!
Please note Lily is not equipped with Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods.
