The Blue Whales were amazing! Now I know why a Blue Whale got it's name. Also saw krill, the whales food.

Fantastic experiences. We saw a whale right off the dock and later we were surrounded by happy dolphins. Highly recommend, it's a very special experience that anybody should have.

About the time we should have turned back to return to the harbor a whale was spotted! Thank goodness the pilot let us watch the whale for a while. He moved the boat closer and even phoned a marine biologist to check on the whale's behavior. We had a great time.

What a great boat ride!

Our family enjoyed this boat ride very much. It gave us the opportunity to go out on the Pacific Ocean in a relaxing catamaran with someone else in charge at the helm. Although we did not see much of the two whales in the area and no dolphins at all on the day that we went, we still enjoyed the scenic ride even though the windy weather made for a little bumpy ride on the way out. Heading back to shore we got up close to sea lions hanging around on a buoy.

The great whale and dolphin adventure

Crew was great, the tour was also very educational. 7 blue whales and 100s of dolphins says it all. The crew know there jobs because it showed during the tour. Some above and beyound things that happen is a crew member came around and offer all the guest to take a picture of the guest with their own camera. Also, I lost my hat in the wind and another boat picked it up and the crew took the time to get the hat from them. I will be rating this tour very high review on Travel advisor. Thanks for the great experience. Jon and Anna

Must do!

We went out as a family our last full day in California to try and see the whales. It was my wife and my 8 year old daughter. We had been out there for 11 days and seeing the majestic blue whales was the highlight of our entire vacation. I cannot recommend highly enough taking the time and spending the money to see those animals. The boat itself was very stable, and the Captain and the crewman both were very helpful and knowledgable. We got the pleasure of seeing 3 blue whales, and a group of dolphins. It was a fantastic experience.

don't waste your money

We did not see one whale on this trip, and very little information or narration was given by the crew. Your money would be better spent buying tickets to Sea World.

Wonderful experience...amazing whale sightings!
Sun, Sep 18, 11   12:00 PM mjurasek Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
We decided to try out this trip based on the high number of recent whale sightings and the good reveiws. We had an AWESOME time! The captian was wonderful and even took us out looking for a pod of Orca's that had recently been sighted. We were able to find them and saw them blow their spouts but they never resurfaced. That was ok though because we headed back in and were able to see the most wonderful Blue Whales. We sat for a long time and watched a pair of them surface, dive down and surface again. They were so close to the boat you could almost touch them! My son is visually impaired and can't see things at a distance but was so excited that he could see the whales. It was a really neat experience and something I would definitely recommend! We plan to go again :)
