What a great cruise ................

My boyfriend and I took this trip for his b-day it was a surprise. It was great right from the start. We got in the boat and took a seat. The view was beautiful.... We were lucky to see to whales swimming rite next to each other. This experience is so much different than just seeing animals at Sea World. You get to see the whales in their natural habitat. It's also very relaxing.You have a choice of standing up in the deck looking out to the Ocean or seats in the shade that are very comfertable. We would to go again !!! And the people on the boat were very helpfull and nice as well. Thank You very much

We followed two blue whales for 2 hours and got closer than what I'd ever thought I'd be to one of those beautiful creatures! Love the fact that they limit the amount of people on the boat and it was a nice smooth ride. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. We loved having a marine biologist on board to tell us what we were seeing and to answer questions. The captain made every effort to get us to where we were able to see about 30 minutes of blue whale activity even though it meant we would be a little late getting back. It made the cruise that much more enjoyable. The crew was friendly and helpful and the catamaran was clean and comfortable. We had a great time.

We saw hundreds of dolphins. Man its hard to get pictures of them. They had a marine biologists on board to explain what we were seeing. A nice memorable trip. Dress warm. Its a lot colder once you get out. Really a nice group of folks.

Eventhough we didn't get to see any whale, but the experience was great! We saw lots of dolphines, and it was fun to see how the dolphines interacted with us (/the boat). Just out-there in the ocean, was relaxing and enjoyable.

Although we didn't see any whales, the dolphins made up for it. There were hundreds of them. What a great experience. The marine biologist provided indept information on the various types whales and dolphins, the sea lions and the birds. The rest of the crew was very professional, friendly and helpful. We are looking forward to another tour with you and will recommend you to our friends. Thanks for a grand time! Ute PS. It might not be a bad idea to remind your prospective clients of the possibility of sea sickness.

We saw several marine mammals (including several dolphins, sea lions and a grey whale). The marine biologist onboard gave us a lot of detailed information and really added to our experience. The boat ride was comfortable and fun and we were able to get really close to dolphins, which was very exciting... especially for the little ones! This was an AWESOME trip! I would like to go every year at migration season!!!

dolphins galore!!!!
Sun, Feb 15, 09   1:00 PM karyn1020 Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
we had a great time......everyone was friendly & the boat was very clean.................as far as wildlife.................dolphins scored big....they were fantastic......in fact the cruise should of been called the dolphin expedition with whales :):) we did see (kind of) 3 maybe 4 whales....we only saw their water spout up & a bit of their back side but if we werent looking we wouldnt of thought it was a whale.....but we understand whales can be elusive at times - this is not alaska, canada, or norway............we also saw some weird upside down stingray fish which was cool.....even though the whales were shy the dolphins totally made up for it................we had a blast & the catamaran was a nice choice for site seeing.................thank you!!!!!

We took the catamaran boat for our whate watching experience. It was awesome! Weather was cold but clear, water was calm, boat was comfortable and offered both indoor and outdoor seating and/or standing. We saw whales on 4 different occasions during the 2 hour trip, however, they were very elusive, and did not like the boats approaching, so they stayed very quiet and did not exhale in a way that would allow us to see the big spray from their blowhole. Instead, they would come up to the surface, quietly exhale, then go back down again -- so, you only got to see a small part of the top of them, and just for a quick second or two. It was still really neat to observe. The dolphins were incredible though! There were hundreds of them, and they loved to play in the wakes of the boat. They were so much fun to watch! We also got to check out the seals on our way back to the dock. All in all, it was a great experience, and I would definitly do it again! :)
