HIGH SPEED, LUXURY WHALE WATCHING

THE CONDOR EXPRESS was constructed and delivered to us in 2002. She has showed tens of thousands of passengers the beauty of the Santa Barbara Channel. The CX stands at 71feet in length, with an overall dry weight of ~56 tons. In 2020, it was re-powered with four brand new 700 horsepower Scania Diesel engines, making us faster and more efficient! Specifically designed with wildlife in mind, we are propelled by 4 large Hamilton jets. There are no propellers or sharp rudders underneath our vessel, making us completely whale and dolphin safe!
