Captain Rich is excellent. We will definitely be back !! Although it was a bit chilly, it was well worth it.

Loved Rich's authenticity and felt safe with him as our captain. He ensured we got to see sea lions, and I just loved the entire time on the water. Thanks Rich for a memory we will always have from our 18th anniversary.
