Shark Safari

A Seasonal Shark-Watching Experience

Quick Details


  • 1 ½ Hours

Enjoy a seasonally-available shark-watching tour aboard Fast Cat

Captain Dave’s Shark Safaris are aboard our high-speed, rigid hull inflatable catamaran, Fast Cat.

This zodiac-style boat offers you the closest opportunity of any Dana Point tour vessel to view the apex predators in their natural environment. With a capacity of up to 12 passengers, Fast Cat offers a more intimate shark watching experience. Passengers may also use their own GoPro on a stick (at their own risk) to film close-ups of the sharks.

Fast Cat has passed a series of rigorous U.S. Coast Guard safety inspections to become Dana Point’s only Coast Guard inspected and certified rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB). Shark watchers enjoy great white sharks and other wildlife while comfortably seated under a large custom sunshade. And Fast Cat’s high speed engines will take you to the sharks quickly!

Shark Safari Availability/Schedule

Shark Safaris are on hiatus.*

*These trips were available for a limited time due to the high number of sharks in the area and good quality of sightings. Trips will resume in the future, based on sightings.

As of November 2017, most of the great white sharks in the area have resumed migrating.
