After up to 49 passengers board the eco-friendly catamaran, the Kitty Kat, the captain zips off into the water for a 90-minute wildlife tour. As noses tingle in the salty ocean air, naturalists fortify brains with knowledge. Harbor seals and sea lions may be seen gossiping out on rocky outcroppings as dolphins demonstrate their aquatic gymnastics. As eyes absorb views of Alcatraz, gulls swoop down and snatch lunch from the ocean. Tours helpfully provide an online checklist for spectators to print out and bring to record their wildlife sightings. See the schedule here.
- $699 for a private 90-minute boat charter with a guide for up to 47 people (a $1,500 value)
During a private charter, up to 47 revelers can engage in aquatic merrymaking aboard the aforementioned Kitty Kat. The 90-minute excursion includes a guide to interpret area wildlife, and guests are welcome to bring their own food and libations.
