Photography Safari

These friends just took a private charter on our Elkhorn Slough Safari in search of the perfect photo.
Photo Buds Comment: "We've been on ES Safari 4 or 5 times now, and Captain Yohn always gets us in position for some GREAT wildlife shots, but that is not the reason we go. The main reason is it is so peaceful up Elkhorn Slough, nobody hassles us, and we are around the people we want to be with. It is a great adventure experience with your buddies!"

Sea Otters Galore

I used visit the Monterey Bay all the time in search of my favorite
furry friends, sea otters. I used to get ecstatic if I saw maybe one or two otters in the wild. But now that I work for the Elkhorn Slough Safari I look forward to seeing rafts of otters nearly everyday in their natural habitat. Today we actually saw 66 otters up close and personal, but that’s not all we also saw 159 harbor seals and over 47
species of birds. These tours are more than just tours, they’re an experience of a lifetime.
