The boat is extremely quiet (electric) and tranquil. Captain Brian is so knowledgeable of the Elkhorn Slough area and takes the time to really make the experience interesting and enjoyable. Great opportunities for photography. Since the boat only holds 6 passengers, he offers many special personal touches: binoculars to use, blankets and hot beverages to take away the chill, or...

Took the tour with my family, including my three-year-old daughter. I recommend it highly. Captain Brian is incredibly knowledgeable. Love how quiet the boat is! We saw harbor seals, sea lions, otters, and many species of birds! I like that they provided binoculars and hot tea :-) My daughter even took a nap on the boat! Before the trip Captain... More

After my wife and I enjoyed our tour of the Elkhorn Slough with Brian earlier this year, we brought along our family for a repeat visit during the holidays. All had a great time to be sure and especially enjoyed Brian's in-depth knowledge of the area, its history and marine life.

I sent two friends on the Slough excursion as a birthday present and they had a wonderful time. Brian always provides a great overview of the slough wildlife and makes the voyage so very comfortable. Don't miss your chance!

My wife and I had read many good reviews of the Whisper Charter tour through Elkhorn Slough, but it still managed to exceed our expectations. Captain Brian is not only very knowledgable, but is also an extremely likable guy. In addition to his enjoyable commentary about the many animals we saw and the ecosystem of the Slough, we had a...

The boat was very comfortable and super quiet due to the electric motor. The captain was very knowledgeable about both the wildlife and the history of the slough itself.

My husband and I have lived in the area for a long time. We finally took this tour over the weekend. It was fabulous. Captain Brian was very knowledgeable about the history and the wild life. We will do this again. It was tons of fun.

I expected to see the very cool sea otters and harbor seals and lots of birds. But it was a surprise to learn about the fascinating history of the Slough and how it became this eco-paradise, and continues to remain a welcome wildlife haven in spite of the many visitors. Highlights were seeing the sea otter with nursing pup attached... More
