Directions for Sanctuary Cruises Whale Watching

Moss Landing, California


Moss Landing is halfway around the Monterey Bay between Santa Cruz and Monterey. It is a fantastic little community of antique shops, eclectic restaurants and galleries.

Get on Highway One southbound from Santa Cruz or northbound from Monterey and go until you are just about a block south of the natural gas powered power plant at Moss Landing. It has two tall smokestacks that are visible for miles from every direction.

The Whole Enchilada Restaurant is on the water side of the highway.

Turn toward the water just north of the restaurant onto Moss Landing Road and go 1 block. Take a right onto Sandholdt Road. KOA Express RV Park is to the right. Pass it and take the next right, into the harbor. (You'll see a single lane bridge ahead but won't cross it.)

We are located at "A" Dock, which is the first dock on the left. We meet you at this gate 15 minutes before the cruise. Please don't block the gate.

Parking: You may park in the harbor lot close to the boats. Handicapped parking is the closest. All-day parking permits are $3. They're available from the box on the laundromat building across the parking lot form the gate for A Dock.
ATM: Located in the Moss Landing Harbor office.

From 101: Take 156 West from 101. Go through the town of Castroville ("Artichoke Capital of the World") to reach Highway One northbound. Signs clearly mark the way. Then follow the directions above.
