About your host

My name is Captain Brian, I own and operate Nomad Charters in Santa Cruz, CA. I have been sailing for 40 years starting in Kansas.

What we’ll do

We'll set sail from the Santa Cruz Harbor aboard the classic Westsail 42' Nomad, and head out into the Monterey Bay in search or good wind and wildlife.

Where you'll be

We'll be sailing on the scenic and wildlife filled Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. We often hear, "It's amazing how different everything looks from out here!" To me it's amazing that we have the Monterey Canyon, Bay, and surrounding mountains all in one setting. It provides bountiful wildlife, natural beauty, and we are privileged to be able to access this aboard our sailing vessel Nomad.
