On July 4th we took a wonderful 2-hour boat trip at Elkhorn Slough in Moss Landing on the Central Coast of California. We took this trip with Whisper Charters and Captain Brian Ackerman was the skipper. His boat was named the Selkie II. It holds six people plus the Captain very comfortably. He is very knowledgeable about the history of the Slough and the wildlife and plants that inhabit it. It was a very interesting and fun experience aboard his boat. Oh, about the boat, the slough is very calm and the deck of the boat is low to the water. There was plenty of room to move around to get the best “shot” for photography. We brought our lunch and there was complimentary water, tea and coffee on board.

He will also rent out the boat specifically for photo trips for a reasonable hourly rate and I’m looking forward to doing that later this year with one of my good friends also interested in photography. With fewer people, it will be easy to bring a tripod and set it up without being in anyone’s way or being a hazard. I recommend Captain Brian and Whisper Charters very highly and you can find out more by clicking on the link above.
