Had a great time out on the Monterey Bay. Awesome view of Santa Cruz mountains and seascape. A different way to show visitors our town.

Beautiful day but little wind so did a lot of motoring but we saw sea otters, sealions and dolphins. The pizza and chardonnay were good and the staff were friendly and accommodating.
