Wonderful experience!

We took the 2-hour catamaran whale watching trip and had an amazing time! We saw multiple grey whales, including one that breached fully out of the water, and loads of dolphins (which were even more exciting to watch than the whales because they come so close to the boat). The catamaran is a little more expensive, but worth it due to a smaller passenger load and a marine biologist on board (Morgan). Morgan was a huge asset, as her knowledgeable commentary about what we were seeing was very helpful. One warning: the catamaran does move up and down significantly, even when idling in one place. It is very hard to get good pictures because of this and I actually missed 2 of the 3 breaches while I was messing around with my camara controls. Thank goodness I stopped, because I did witness the 3rd and final breach, which Morgan assured me was a most uncommon occurence. As one passenger said, " You'll always have the memory of what you saw and you can buy a postcard at the wharf taken with a better camara," Finally, while I wasn't seasick, the motion of this smaller boat is pretty noticeable...and it gets chilly on the water. Bring a sweater! Overall, a fantastic experience with a great company.

We didn't see any whales but lots of dolfins playing with the boat. The crew was great lots of information given and spent their time really looking for the whales and made sure we got to see the dolfins up close. We also saw sealions. My daughters really enjoyed it even though it was a bit cool (weather).

The boat captains were helpful, friendly, and focused on finding sea life for our entertainment. There was plenty of room on the boat and the experience was really fun for all of us.

Found Whales right out of the Harbor. We tired of Whales and spent most of the day cruising through a hugh pod of Dolphin. At least 250 in this pod. The Dolphin put on a great show. We next sited 3 whales in a group on our way back to port. What a memorable experience.

Wonderfully fun and educational!

I have had the pleasure to ride on the Cat boat three times, all with different groups of family and children. First time, we did not see whales, but saw three different kinds of dolphins, which was absolutely amazing, so I did not miss the whales. The next two times, we spotted whales - which was great! But, I think it is the dolphins that really make the trip! They are so fun and playful, the whole boat goes crazy when they swim by the boat. I highly recommend this adventure for the whole family!

Wonderful trip!

We had a really lovely trip! The captain and crew were very friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience fun for everyone. There was lots of excitement when we found a rare pod of Dahl's Porpoises. We also saw a resting grey whale, and around 50 bottlenose dolphins. The dolphins' antics even encouraged the seasick members of our group to get up and watch! All in all, we had a great time and will go again. =)
