I LOVED IT. I really recomend it if you love the ocean, sea life, and Santa Cruz. It is a great location for family fun. I took my two children that are 10 & 12, I do not recommend for children younger then 8.

Captain Forest was both friendly and knowledgeable. The charter was to celebrate a friends birthday, and he was interested in learning to sail, so Captain Forest gave him the rudder and allowed him to steer us out of the harbor. During the sail, Forest shared...More
