About Us

Protecting and Respecting Santa Barbara Channel's Cetaceans and Marine Life

We are a group of whale enthusiasts: whale watching tour operators; naturalists; biologists; fishers; educators; resource managers; artists; NGO’s all working together to heighten the awareness of the abundance and diversity of whales in the Santa Barbara Channel.


Learn About & Appreciate Whales for their Crucial Role in the Environment

Our hope is to not only learn how you can go watch and learn about our local whales but to also appreciate the ecological role whales play in enhancing the overall health and productivity of our local marine environment.
