Want to see otters? This is your chance! While we can’t guarantee what the otters will be doing because this is an active bunch of sea otters in the Elkhorn Slough. We are also very proud to be certified Wildlife Stewards with Sea Otter Savvy. What does that mean? It means that we take great care in making sure we have the least amount of impact on these amazing creatures as possible. The otters of the Elkhorn Slough have pups all year long, so you have an excellent chance to see a mom feeding or playing with her pup.
We have a naturalist on board to assist in wildlife spotting, providing insight into the natural wonders of the Slough, and to answer any questions. Our naturalists are experienced and always informed about the happenings in the Slough and will be narrated during the tour to educate you with the nature of the wetland, its habitants and more fun facts about the area. There is also a bathroom on board our electric catamaran.
Know before you go
It is always best to dress in layers as the weather can change drastically on our beautiful California Coast. No need to worry about seasickness as the Slough is flat calm and our boat is an extremely stable platform. Bring a camera and binoculars if possible! Our boat departs on schedule so make sure to arrive 20 minutes ahead of time.
