There are so many sights to Visit here. It is all so breath taking. The wharf is a nice walk, I recommend the Dolphin Restaurant at the end of the pier. The food is amazing, and reasonable.

Almost 2 hours late. Apparently they only have one driver, and when they ran into timing issues with an earlier pickup, we got the shaft. When we arrived at the pickup location at SFO, the driver hadn't even left Santa Cruz. Unacceptable. BEWARE!!!
