My favorite way to watch wildlife is from a boat. Perhaps I’m a bit lazy but I like letting the boat do the work while I do the viewing. Whisper Charters in Moss Landing, California has reinvented the nature touring experience with its electric boat. Ordered specifically for wildlife touring of California’s Elkhorn Slough, the Selkie II can motor ten hours on a single charge. As the company name implies, motoring is done as quietly as a whisper, letting you move among the wildlife with little disturbance. The smooth operation makes the boat a perfect platform for photography and video.
The boat has comfy seating for six and windows that roll up and down to keep you snug in cool winds and allow unobstructed viewing in nice weather. With a small number of passengers, customer service is excellent. Founder Brian Ackerman meets guests at the parking lot with a pass and escorts them to the launch where soft music plays and coffee or wine are waiting. I felt like a movie star as I embarked on some world-class wildlife viewing!
