Our Boats

Our Boats

We are excited to announce that in July, 2020 – and possibly even sooner- we are replacing the Kohola with a newly constructed custom designed 40′ catamaran which will be captained by Casey. The new vessel will allows us to offer our unique and personalized tours for up to thirteen guests. So when booking with Captain Casey, you may have just six guests on your tour OR there may be up to 13 if the new boat is ready. We will be adding capacity when it is available. Please call us or email if there are any questions about this and we will be glad to update you.

We will continue offering our tours for up to six passengers aboard Catabatic, our custom built 33′ catamaran captained by Shawn.

Our new vessel is 40′ long and 14′ wide and provides a very roomy, stable platform from which our guests can enjoy the whales and other wildlife we encounter on our tours. It has a single level, full walk-around deck in addition to a spacious bow and after deck area which will allow our guests easy access to the wildlife no matter where in relation to the boat it appears. The side and aft decks are covered to provide shelter from the rain. Our new boat will also be staffed with an additional crew member to provide assistance and information for our guests.

Aboard our boats you will have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the sights. With plenty of deck space around the full perimeter of the boat, you never have to look over someone’s shoulder or miss a good photo opportunity.

Both of our boats have been specifically designed by Captain Shawn to maximize your experience. Our heated and enclosed cabins provide individual, cushioned seating for each guest and a warm and dry place to enjoy the travel out and back to the whale viewing areas. The catamaran hull is exceptionally stable and provides the smoothest and most comfortable ride while we travel in search of the whales and other wildlife.

Our boats are equipped with a full complement of safety equipment and navigation electronics to ensure your safety while aboard. Both boats have a fully functional and extremely clean restroom and sink.
