Q&A with Carol Jones, Owner
Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
We pride ourselves with a Captain and crew that are dedicated to your experience aboard the "Kahuna", courteous service and a clean well maintained vessel. Kahuna has been based out of Moss Landing for 26 years. The first charter boat to run out of Moss Landing.
I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
If you have never been on a boat in the ocean and not sure if motion sickness will get to you we would advise taking medication at least an hour before getting on the boat to help ensure you have a pleasant experience.
As the old adage says, "Stuff happens." What training do you and your staff have to stay ahead of the unexpected?
The Kahuna is U.S.Coast Guard certified which means we are inspected every year. Our professional crew holds periodic drills to stay fresh and know exactly what to do in case the unexpected happens.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Moss Landing is in the heart of the Monterey Bay. The Monterey Bay Submarine Canyon, the largest and deepest submarine canyon on the Pacific coast, extends to within 700 feet from the shoreline at Moss Landing. Upwelling occurs from the depths of the canyon bringing nutrients to draw the fishes for the whales and dolphin to feast on. We don't have to go far just right in our own backyard.
