This cruise was the best!!!!

All three of us in my group had never been in a boat on the ocean before so we were concerned with getting motion sickness. I'm afraid of deep water and things popping up in the water. I'll tell you, we didn't even think about those things. The crew on the ship was pleasant and friendly, the trip itself was one of the most exciting things we'ver ever done as a family. We've talked about doing this for years, and years. It was absolutely wonderful!!! My 12 year old granddaughter was thrilled as was my son and I. We made some wonderful memories on this cruise. We saw several whales (2 different kinds) which was rare the Marine Biologist said. We were hoping to see dolphins but we were happy seeing so many whales. We'll be back on this ship in the future. I would highly recommend this organization and it's services.

I can't even say how amazing it was to see those beautiful creatures so close! From what I understand, we had a VERY good day... as we saw about 5 blue whales and a pod of dolphins... truly amazing! The guides/captains were really great and showed us all an unforgetable experience!

The cruise was everything we had hoped for, except someone forgot to tell the whales of our rondavue point., HA! Never the less, it was very enjoyable, & relaxing. We intend to book another cruise on our next trip.

WE HAD A GOOD TIME. WAS A SMALL GROUP ON BOARD SO WE WERE ABLE TO SOCIALIZE WITH ALL. HAD A GREAT TIME MEETING THOSE ON BOARD AND HOW FUNNY IT IS THAT WHO EVER YOU MEET YOU USUALLY HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON OR KNOW SOMETHING IN COMMON. AND BEST OF ALL WE DID SEE A WHALE.

Had a great time!

Overall, we were very pleased with the tour. The staff was very friendly, the catamaran very clean/neat, and the adventure very worth while. Luckily, we got to see whales, which was our objective. Nice to have the crew acknowledge my son's 18th birthday as well. I would have liked the marine biologist talk about whales more often, ie give a history of them, where they came from, what they eat, etc. She talked one on one with us, but had to repeat herself many times to other guests the same facts. Also, I think the tour could have been a bit longer. Otherwise, we had a great time... Thank you!

Excellent Catamaran Adventure Cruises trip
Sun, Sep 20, 09   1:00 PM tierramike Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our 3-generation group (Father, Mother, 2 Daughters and 1 granddaughter) had a terrific time on our whale watching trip on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2009. The weather was perfect, with warm, sunny sky, very light breeze and light, glassy seas. The boat was nice and roomy, and certainly didn't feel crowded with around 29 pasengers and crew of 4. All of the crew were very friendly and helpful. The marine biologist on board, Morgan Ritchie, and her assistant were very knowledgeable and added a lot to the trip. We even bought one of Morgan's excellent photos on the way in. We saw three different blue whales, which are awesome creatures. We also saw a mola mola (ocean sunfish) near the boat and a large marlin that jumped clear out of the water several times, though it was too far away to photograph. And, of course, we saw common dolphins - hundreds of them! Many of the dolphins were accompanied by their young ones, as they swam right next to the boat and jumped around in large areas near the boat. Almost everywhere we looked, there were dolphins. My old digital camera was way too slow on the shutter speed to get the really good shots of the whales venting upon surfacing or having their tails high in the air as they started deep dives, but my daughter got some really great photos. All-in-all, it was a wonderful trip, and I highly recommend it. We'll be back for grey whale season.

Everyone LOVED it!

My 65 year old dad said it was one of the coolest experiences of his life! His wife agreed. Warning: several of the people in our group who waited til they were on board to take motion sickness medicine were miserably queasy the whole time. The one lady who usually has motion sickness took her medicine an hour before boarding as the directions state & she was fine. So take some over-the-counter motion sickness medicine and you'll be in for the experience of a lifetime. Think you can do without it, and you are gonna ruin a great experience. Sighted: whales, dolphins, sea otters and everyone loved it!

Experience of a lifetime
Sat, Sep 5, 09   11:00 AM ToddThomas Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My 12 year old son and I went out at 11:00 a.m. on 9/5/09. We would have enjoyed our excursion even if we had not seen a single whale. The crew was friendly and did a great job explaining the marine life that is found in that area. The boat was perfect with plenty of room to move around. The sandwiches that we purchased from the galley were outstanding. To top it off, not only did we see 2 huge blue whales up close but the crew put us in the middle of a pod of 800 to 1000 dolphin. I want to thank everyone at the Dana Wharf for an experience of a lifetime.
