We specialize in marine education field trips for over 7,000 students, annually. Tour groups love our "stretch limo" vessel with a heated cabin for all, seating and complimentary coffee and tea! We're happy to offer exclusive charters for Special Events from reunions to Celebrations of Life/Ashes at Sea - take over the Discovery as your own!

Sea Life Cruise

Our welcoming staff and crew offer a true Oregon adventure for visitors from far and near. Join our seasoned captains and a team of friendly naturalist guides, as we provide a fun and exciting 2-hour sea life cruise that focuses on Oregon wildlife aboard the deluxe 65ft DISCOVERY.

Depending on the time of year, we look for gray whales, harbor porpoise, seals, sea lions, pelicans, bald eagles, and an abundance of marine birds. Enjoy the incredible scenery of our bay, river, and coastline featuring the largest fishing fleet on the Oregon Coast, our historic bridge, two lighthouses, and fun activities for all ages!
