About Me

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

My name is Giancarlo Thomae and I drive freigthers for a living. I am a Captain, photographer and drone pilot for Sanctuary Cruises Whale Watching out of Moss Landing, California for fun while I am in town. A few years back, I was Captain of the Elkhornslough Safari for a year. I graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in Biology in 2015.

I am a guest lecturer at local elementary schools, high schools, and universities, sharing my knowledge, passion and inspire others to conserve our changing ecosystems. 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 local scenery & wildlife.
