From aboard our intimate catamaran “DolphinSafari”, you’ll enjoy watching a mock cannon battle between the historic tall ships as the sun sinks below the horizon. This limited-edition cruise will have just 16 guests on board!
While this cruise does not include whale watching, since we will be out in the open ocean and wildlife is inherently unpredictable, there is a possibility of viewing animals that might be in the area.
The annual Maritime Festival, hosted by the Ocean Institute, celebrates California’s rich maritime history with a fleet of beautiful tall ships visiting Dana Point Harbor.
About the Boat
DolphinSafari is our original 35-foot catamaran sailboat. She is Coast Guard certified to carry up to 26 passengers, however, for this special cruise we have reduced capacity to 16 guests.
DolphinSafari provides an intimate Tall Ships Mock Cannon Battle experience. Cushioned seating and panoramic views are available in the enclosed cockpit. Two eye-spy tram nets on the wide bow give you plenty of elbow room to view the tall ships and, if we’re lucky, maybe a pod coastal dolphins swimming inches below your feet. There is one restroom onboard the boat.
DolphinSafari is not equipped with Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods.
