have two vessels available for these trips:
- The Point Sur Clipper is
the boat we use for most of our charters. She is a 55' vessel
equipped with two brand new engines by John Deere, and is
fully Coast Guard inspected and insured. She has a capacity
of 48 passengers, inside and outside seating, two restrooms
and all required life saving equipment.
The Pt. Sur Clipper was designed for handling extreme weather
in Washington and Alaska. Although we don't have such extreme
weather in Monterey, the design of the boat makes it less
likely for passengers to be seasick when they're on the
Pt. Sur Clipper than when they're on other boats in the
The Pt. Sur Clipper has been featured on National Geographic
and BBC documentaries.
- The 70' twin diesel Sea Wolf
II, with a capacity of 70 passengers and equipment similar
to the Pt. Sur Clipper.
