    Astronomy Tour
    If you are looking for something to do in the evening, The Astronomy Experience is definitely a must. Amateur astronomer Kathleen Hill Carlisle, featured in Westways and Sunset Magazine, will take you on a journey of the night sky. The Astronomy Experience is an educational adventure enjoying an unobstructed view of the night sky, and viewing the planets through her large telescope! Please visit our website for tour information and times, or call us to book a private charter tailored to your interests. Tickets sold at 114 Catalina Ave.

    We also offer Coastal Sightseeing, Dolphin/ Sea Lion Adventures, and private charters. We have the best rates in town and most of our tours are about an hour to one and a half hours.

    If you are a Novice or a seasoned angler we offer custom private fishing charters on any of our (2) sport fishing vessels.
