Corporate Whale Watching at its best!

On Saturday, January 17 the yacht America plus 60 Ft Catamarans Aolani & Adventuress entertained 134 international guests for a very majestic whale watch and sunset sail experience. The letter received from our meeting planner client at 11:40 pm that same evening, was filled with excitement at the incredible response she had received from her guests.

This was an incredible late afternoon adventure for this German company and their guests. Arriving from the beautiful Omni La Costa Resort & Spa at 3:00 pm, the guests boarded the 3 large yachts for a quick departure to the ocean. The Gray Whales are migrating and the yachts didn’t have to go too far past the bay entrance to encounter their first whales. With only 1 hour available for the whales once the yachts reached the ocean, the intention was to stay with them until sunset and then return home to downtown San Diego under the lights of the city.  It was magical and the most perfect timing. A group of 8 whales entertained all 3 vessels, the sun set in a magnificent display of golden color and the yachts motored down the bay into the beautiful city lights. Whether this had been a winter gray Whale experience or our amazing summer Blue Whale excursion, the ‘end of day’ atmosphere is truely unbeatable.

For corporate groups looking for some additional ‘wow’ factor, this is truely a special experience. While our ‘America’ can accommodate 76 guests, the inclusion of other larger vessels allows us to coordinate much larger groups to the ocean for this spectacle.

Let Next Level Sailing and the yacht ‘America’ entertain your next group.

Historical Gray Whale Migration off our Coast!

Whales are Here!

 

 

 

 

Gray whales have arrived!

DSC08199 psGray whales are in numbers off our coast already! Our first whale watching trip of the season was on December 9th, and we were greeted to a cow/calf pair of gray whales. What a way to start the season! Last year was a record season for gray whale watching off the California coast, and we expect this year to be just as spectacular.

Daily whale watching on America begins next weekend, December 20th. We couldn’t be more excited to start the season!

Corporate entertaining at its best

2 America's Cup yachts battle close during a San Diego corporate event

2 America’s Cup yachts battle close during a San Diego corporate event

On Saturday we entertained 80+ members of an international bank + their VIP invited guests. Using all 3 of our magnificent yachts we provided all 80+ guests with a hands-on authentic America’s Cup ‘match race’. A ‘match race’ is a one-on-one, boat-to-boat race with just 2 vessels shadowing each other up and down a race course….as is the true theme of the America’s Cup racing. While the 2 x 80 Ft race yachts conducted their first event, those waiting and anticipating their turn were on the much larger ‘America’, in this case acting as the mother-ship. After each race the 80 Ft yachts tied beside the 139 Ft ‘America’ where guests swapped teams. On this occasion we conducted 2 ‘heats’, and then the two winning teams had a 3rd race for the ultimate winner.
