Excellent Boat Ride, lots to see

Loved watching the dolphins, didn't mind not seeing the whale. They may want to rename the boat ride. Dolphin watching. It was amazing. Enjoyed every minute of it, so did my family. Thank you. Loved the half price Tuesday deal, that is why we went!

Really enjoyed the boat ride. We didn't get to see any whales, but we did see lots of dolphins, sea lions and interesting ocean birds. Captain Jack provided lots of information about the dolphins and sea lions we saw. A very enjoyable 2-hour trip!

Fun activity!

Great organization, great boat, great crew- this was a really great trip and the captains were very knowledgeable. This was nothing like my previous whale watching trip with another company on a rickety, smelly fishing boat. There was a range of people from small children to senior citizens and everyone enjoyed the trip.

Everything about this experience was wonderful. The crew on the boat were so helpful and informative. Never did we expect to see the dolphins and whales like we did. It definately far-exceeded our expectations and we can't wait until we can do it again.

Whale watching successful!

My daughter and I went out on the 2pm boat. We got really lucky because there were a couple of minke whales that seemed to really like our boat; they circled it, went under and around it, and kept coming back; one of them was only 10-15 feet away. The captain said that minke whales are rare and usually very shy, and that this was a "real treat"; he had never seen one so social before. My daughter was thrilled and it was pretty cool to see. The minke whales are, unfortunately, still hunted by some countries such as Japan, so I hope it stays local!

Not much of a trip.

Having gone on many such excursions, I was disappointed in the fact that the boat went out from the harbor a couple of miles then just sort of circled for about an hour, then went south towards San Clemente for a short distance, then turned back to the harbor. No whales was not the problem, I just did not think that they made a very good effort to find any. Did see a few dolphins.

More Dolphin Watching than Whale Watching

Since Whales are a bit hard to come by, at least that is what we heard, it may be best to play up the dolphins and play down the whales. Perhaps that's what whale watching is, but we simply look for and searched for whales, with no luck. Kids did not care, the dolphins were way cooler anyway. We loved it and will go again, but this time, we will call it "Dolphin Watching"

Nice trip

Didn't see any whales but saw plenty of dolphins, sea lions and pelicans. My older son did not enjoy so much as he got seasick but the rest of the family enjoyed the trip.

wonderful, professional

I would highly recommend it. We were lucky enough to see three different types of whales, it is almost unheard of...we were extremely lucky, and the staff was very knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend this to anyone who doesn't get sea sick!

Because of the half price Tuesdays, a friend and I got a group together to enjoy a couole hours on the water. The crew was great! Very interactive with the passengers. If you want to go whale watching, do it! Don't put it off. Have fun!
