Conference and Group Facilities
Mix in a bit of play with your work by planning your next corporate retreat at Shearwater Resort and Marina.

What that includes is up to you: hiking or eco-adventure excursions, sport fishing or island cruising, maybe a trip to a secluded natural hot spring with wildlife viewing and photography opportunities or a private dinner for the whole group on our outdoor deck overlooking the mountains of the Central Coast at sunset. The possibilities are limitless.
