I have been out on this trip many times, and I will go again many more. On August 25th, we were entertained by a Blue Whale for more than half an hour. I would take this cruise every day if I could...

We had some friends with their families out for a visit. We went whale watching with Catamaran Adventure Cruises and had a great time. I would highly recommend it.

One of the Best Experiences

We got so much more than we expected. The crew was outstanding. The catamaran was comfortable and the trip was awesome. We saw about 6 blue whales at close range and it was one of the best experiences ever. We've been talking about it to our friends and family for days. We would definately recommend this activity to everyone we know.

A very nice clean boat, with friendly people working. Best part they tried and succeeded to find whales and we were able to get close to 2 blue whales! Great deal for the price.

Well worth an afternoon

We enjoyed our 2 1/2-hour trip. We hoped to see a whale but couldn't find one--it apparently is not the prime season for that. However, we saw hundreds of dolphins, which was a new and exciting experience. There was plenty of room on the boat, and on weekends there is a marine biologist on board to assist in identification of species, to provide useful information and to answer questions. You should note that it's not a particularly smooth trip, though the back of the boat is a little smoother. My wife and I have been on a number of catamarans of this size when snorkeling in the Caribbean and have never gotten seasick. My wife was fairly seasick, as were some other passengers, and I was a bit queazy. Nothing a little Dramamine won't cure, so if you're not a veteran on the seas, take it before you go. It will make the trip more enjoyable and will ensure that you won't miss out on anything. Overall, well worth the time and a good value.

While we were not lucky enough to actually see a whale on our tour, we did happen upon an amazingly large pod of dolphin and were able to photograph them as they played along side the boat. The Captain and crew were knowledgeable and entertaining, making the trip even more enjoyable.

Disapointed participant

The day was very nice with a medium breeze that made it very comfortable. When we departed the seas were a bit choppy and as we went further out it became stronger. One of the children of a larger group was on the bow and threw up his breakfast. Bad enough but the crew after some time came forward briefly looked at it and then proceeded to throw a small bar towel over it . This did not cover the mess and for the next hour and a half everyone was forced to observe this and worse yet smell it. This ruined the entire cruise for many and made many of the passengers get very queezy. I would suggest that perhaps your company should invest in a bucket to clean up such accidents or at least inform your customers what they should do if they start to feel badly. This was absolutely the worst sailing experience I have had and I would not recommend your trip to anyone Ron and Doris Cormack

Couldn't Have Asked For a Better Time

My wife and I went on a three day mini vacation to Laguna for our ten year anniversary. We scheduled the Whale watching for our last day. This two hour trip ended our vacation as it started {Completely Awesome}. We were fortunate to have a great Captain and extremely fortunate to see 4 blues and 2 Fin whales, not to mention the huge school of common Dolphin that were very playful. We spoke with others on board and found out that some had ventured out numerous times but never saw any whales, which is why we considered ourselves extremely fortunate to witness these gigantic mammals. It was the perfect whale watching trip to end a perfect 3 day vacation. Thank you Dana Wharf.
