Welcome Aboard! I am Captain, Jori Mauntel, a Licensed Captain with The U.S. Coast Guard.

Growing up loving and respecting animals and wildlife, I discovered I had a particular affinity for marine mammals. For several years, I have taken friends and family out on my boat to enjoy the amazingly abundant sea life off Dana Point.  I turned my love and passion for luxury boating and sea life into my dream profession! Working hard to achieve my captain’s license, I opened Top Tier Luxury Excursions. Over the past years, I have had the pleasure of introducing my guests to whales, dolphins, sea lions and the beauty of Dana Point and its surrounding waters.

I would love to welcome you aboard for an exciting and memorable excursion!
