About Me

“Adopt the pace of nature:  her secret is patience.”  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

My name is Giancarlo Thomae and I am a Captain for  Elkhorn Slough Safaris, and am a photographer and Marine Biologist for Sanctuary Cruises Whale Watching at Moss Landing, California in the Monterey Bay. I recently graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in Biology.

I lead paddle board tours for SUP Shack Santa Cruz and guest lecture at local elementary, high schools, and universities. Being fortunate enough to grow up in Santa Cruz, California has helped me cultivate my passion for marine life and the ocean into a fulfilling career. I absolutely love photographing the beautiful scenery I get to work in and being able to share my passion.

Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you enjoy my work.
