Whale watching tours or fishing excursions, hosted by one of Santa Cruz’s founders, The Stagnaro family.  The Stagnaro family has been serving the Santa Cruz area for over a century, ever since Italian patriarch Cottardo Stagnaro settled in Santa Cruz in 1879.  Finish with a bite at Stagnaro Bros Seafood restaurant on the Santa Cruz Wharf, or our own Hotel Paradox culinary team can craft a menu for your group inspired by the Monterey Bay and the freshest seasonal local catch.

Santa Cruz Bee Company

Meet the resident Beekeeper at Hotel Paradox! Taste various local honeys with food pairings, learn about the amazing things bees do and see them live in action (safely confined to a secure beehive observation box).
