Charter services, including fishing, diving, photographic, whale watching and wildlife excursions are available as well as fresh seafood straight from the boat. Check with the Santa Cruz Harbor for more details. Aldo's restaurant is across the harbor just a short 5 minute drive. Aldo's is a local favorite for breakfast with a view. The Harbor Cafe is quite a special catch as well. The sea worthy ambiance, bottomless mimosas and brunch are surely a meal worth writing home about. Of course there are several sights to see at the Beach Boardwalk. There is a new ride this summer called the Undertow! A one of a kind spinning roller coaster. A must see. Downtown Santa Cruz has so many great shops from O'Neils, and Pacific Surf to our favorite Bookshop Santa Cruz. Don't miss Marini's famous salt water taffy and a cup of amazing Santa Cruz Roasting co. coffee.
