The Winter Whale Watching Rally is a great event to get together and venture into the Ocean and search for Whales! This is not only a whale watching excursion, but also a photo contest! Each participant can enter one picture from rally. The best photograph wins, which will be determined by the owner of Seaforth, and receives a great prize! The photo does not have to be specifically of a whale, but generally FANTASTIC photo!

-Members who would like to rent the boat longer or would like to overnight the boat can pay the regular member day rate and give advance notice when reserving their boat.
-Luxury Boats that currently live in our Coronado location, WILL NOT be moved for the event. That party will be responsible for getting themselves to the rally and to the after party.
-*Members are STRONGLY encouraged to reserve in advance!* Boats will be filled based on the number of reservations. All boats will be available to book for all renters during this time, so if members do not reserve ahead of time, they might lose their spot in the rally.
– Seaforth will distribute ticket participants throughout boats (Catalina 270’s and Catalina 320), unless a qualified skipper wants to reserve their own luxury boat. The most experienced members will be distributed to ensure safe boat handling; these members will be known as the “skippers” of the race. We will make every effort to accept and honor buddy requests.
The after party will start roughly around 4:30pm in the Sunroad Pavilion next to the pool. Hot Chili and drinks will be provided, BYOB. We will be presenting acknowledgements and raffles for crew and skippers.
Every participant is expected to have read the Notice of Rally, please refer to that below.
