Joonya and Shaun (owner and captain respectively) were superb hosts! Whisper Charters is exactly that -- quiet, calm, serene and wonderful. The electric motor was exactly what is needed in this wildlife wonderland.

Saw so many otters and various birds. Super smooth and quiet sailing. Joonya is a great captain who is personable and very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. Highly recommend the experience - very personal, quality experience.

A few months ago we were able to book our Private Elkhorn Slough Boat Tour with ease. The day before our scheduled tour (July 2021) we received a confirmation email with parking instructions. We were able to find the location with no problems and parking was not very clear due to signs not saying "Whisper Charter" but we parked in the gravel parking lot beside hwy 1, next to a blue kiosk. Turns out that was the perfect place to park. Joonya met us at the parking lot and we followed him to the boat. The boat was smaller than I envisioned from pictures but very comfortable and plenty of room for our small group of 3. The decor on the boat was colorful and very clean. Jooyna was very friendly and was informative with facts about Elkhorn Slough. You can tell this is his passion, not just a business. On our tour we saw many otters, pelicans, harbor seals and sea lions. The boat was amazingly quiet which made the trip very calm, peaceful and relaxing. Worth every penny! Thank you Jooyna, we really enjoyed this experience and learning about Elkhorn Slough.

We had a wonderful sunset cruise with Joonya in Moss Landing. The waterway there is beautiful section of protected water that is home to Otters, Seals, Terns, Pelicans, Geese, and a variety of other wildlife. The boat he pilots is one of a kind and makes almost no noise so the wildlife swims right up to the boat. If your looking for relaxing evening with great views there isn’t much better. Thank you!

Our family went on the "Mid Morning Glide" tour on May 11, 2021. (Two seniors, 2 younger 30s, one active 3 year old, and one baby.) It was fabulous! The electric boat was so quiet and Captain Joonya was so knowledgeable and friendly. The Elkhorn Slough is a magical place in terms of beauty and wildlife. We saw so many otters (some with babies) and harbor seals (more babies and youngsters) up close in their natural environment. Lots of cool birds: snowy egrets, pelicans, cormorants, herons, gulls, etc. The animals obviously knew the boat and that it was not a danger to them so we were able to keep the animals safe but close enough to see the slough and the animals really well. It was a magical tour I will always remember! When I am back in that area I will definitely take the tour again.
