Learn about the three Hawaiian princes that started it all when they rode the waves on redwood surfboards and more! Your team will love the surfing memorabilia and front row seats to watch the locals shred at Steamer Lane.   

Host your meeting at The Cove!

Dream Inn Santa Cruz’s Jack O’Neill Restaurant and Lounge offers, “The Cove,” a private dining and meeting space for up to twelve. If you didn’t already catch the surfing significance, the restaurant is named after Jack O’Neill, the late inventor of the wetsuit and founder of the O’Neill brand. O’Neill called Santa Cruz County home, and as his namesake restaurant and lounge, they focus on coastal cuisine done right, the way Jack would have liked. Enjoy the surf inspired ambiance with surfboard ceiling and sweeping views of Cowell’s surf spot.
