A wonderful day with the Very Best Boat and Crew
Sat, Jun 18, 11   12:00 PM MikeSleek Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Ive been whale watching for years with my young children, in Dana Point and Monterey California and the Catamaran along with her Crew was the VERY BEST we have ever experienced.. Although the Whales did not show on our trip, weve never experienced a better day on the water. The boat is very stable ,quiet and truely low emmission in regards to her engines. It makes for a pleasent day regardless of the show. It was our first time on the Catamaran and I will choose no other Boat again for Whale Watching or Coastal Cruise, " Its simply the Best boat and crew " Thanks For A Great Day and Wonderful Memories with My 3 Children, Michael S,

New boat in great condition, very clean. Friendly, knowledgeable crew. Convenient snack bar and bathrooms onboard. Viewing area in the front of the boat is a little limited but, otherwise, very nice boat to go whale watching on.

Great way to start the day

Although other providers are a little less dollars, yours is a better value when it includes a pre-lecture of the events and a continental breakfast for the morning trip. Great way to start the day.

great dolphins...no whales

Pod of dolphins was fantastic. Unfortunately no whales which I know cannot be guaranteed. However to bill it as a whale watch leaves the customer a little disappointed when non are viewed. Suggest...maybe 25% refund if no whales. Some offer free ticket to see them on another trip but seeing the dolphins was generally worth the trip and 25% is a nice gesture.

Enjoyable outing worth doing at least once.

We had the continental breakfast/lecture first. Then, the time on the water was nice. We had pleasant weather which made it perfect. And, we actually saw a whale for a bit. There was a huge pod of dolphins and several sea lions. The boat was nice with some snacks and beverages. It was an experience worth doing at least one time in ones life.

We were much more than satisfied.

We have been on 5 cruise ships and a lot of adventures. This was by far the best one we have taken, We look forward to returning every year to enjoy this adventure. We were excited about the trip but seeing a whale within 15 minutes a large male and following it for an hour plus end up in the middle of over 100 dolphins all around us. We took plenty of great pictures. We also were up close to a number of sea lions. An unforgettable adventure!

Worth the extra $20.00

You can go cheaper but you wont find a better crew or boat. No diesel smell, quiet, smooth, not crowded, nice selection in the galley, grilled cheese smelled great! Crew was knowledgeable, pleasant, and worked hard to get us to see whales, dolphin, and even found us a rare sunfish! I will use them again. I gladly tipped them after the tour. Don't forget to ask for a parking pass at check-in - no parking ticket worries if your tour runs long.

Saw alot but was persuaded to go
Sun, Feb 20, 11   11:30 AM patpauls Male 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
The trip it self was awesome. Saw about 5-6 gray whales, bunch of dolphins and sea lions, even saw a huge sun fish outta no where! Bright sunny day fun boat ride my girlfriend was afraid to walk anywhere and that was perfect. But the descripition says a close encounter with the sea life as you watch swim below you in our special observation deck.... I thought that meant a glass floor like just a square... nope they mean front of the boat... WOo hoo lol any boat has a front. And the prices are insane for food and drinks but thats not a surprise.
