We decided at the last minute to look for a sunset cruise, and found Whisper Charters online. It was perfect--a peaceful ride, great chatting with the owner, and loads of animals and beautiful views. A must-do.

I have been on other boat tours of Elkhorn Slough but this one far surpassed the others by virtue of the owner’s hospitality and small number of passengers on the boat. This made for a very personal experience. The slough is a fantastic place to...More

We took the early morning trip, and although a little foggy we still were able to see many seals, sea otters, birds and wildlife. We enjoyed the 1 1/2 hours on the water and appreciate Junior's knowledge and hospitality.
