Always enjoy the whale-watching trip

We usually try to take a whale-watching trip whenever we visit the area, usually once or twice a year. We don't always see whales, but are never disappointed. We saw gray whales this trip. The dolphins are always around and very entertaining. Also, if the weather is good (and it usually is) the trip on the water and the fabulous view of the coastline make the trip worthwhile. The crew is always friendly and very informative.

The captain and staff were excellent. They knew where the whales were and followed them with great precision. It was unbelivealbe to my wife and myself how they could predict where and when they would surface. My wife got a great picture of the whales tail. A unusual and unique experience.

Great Show Put on by Hundreds of Dolphins

Although there were no whales in sight, the show that the hundreds of dolphins provided was great. The weather couldn't have been better and the information provided by the crew was most interesting. They were very patient with all of our questions. I never would have known that so many dolphins would be in a pod. Also the interesting way the birds gave the signal to the dolphins as to where the fish were was something I wouldn't have imagined. Great trip and I will be back hopefully to see a blue whale!

This was a fun ocean trip.

HI, We made this a family outing. Grandpa, grandma, three mommies, two daddies, nine kids from 3 to 15. It was the first time for many of the kids and they were excited to ride on the big boat. We saw lots of dolphins -- no whales this time -- and the weather was perfect. The crew members were courteous and helpful and friendly. The boat was neat and clean and in good repair. All in all, a fun experience for everyone. Thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip

We didn't see any whales on this trip, but did see over a hundred dolphins feeding and surfing very near the boat. The weather was good, and the ocean was beautiful. We enjoyed the marvelous South Orange County coastline. The narrator was very interesting and informative. A whale sighting would have been even better, but not necessary for a great trip. Will definitely do it again.

It was a delightful experience for all six of us..
Tue, Mar 15, 11   2:00 PM MLBurgoyne Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Six of us, three generations -- ranging in age from 79 to 22 took the tour, and everyone of us enjoyed it very much. This is the third time we have taken this tour, and each one seems to be more fun than the last. The weather was perfect, the tour guides very knowledgeable and helpful, and we saw lots of activity in the water. I didn't see a whale myself, but we saw several the last two years we were here. More fun than the whales are the hundreds of dolphin that we saw this time. They chase the wake, and surround the boat. We also saw hundreds of pelican feeding and diving for fish. It was just a very enjoyable, fun and delightful experience for all six of us.

Great experience
Tue, Jan 11, 11   2:00 PM mzbadger Female 70+ Local Group of Friends
I've been on the boat many times. People who run it are knowledgeable, good communicators, know where to go to play with our whale and dolsphine friends. They love their work and I never tire of the joy of being out on the water, experiencing the peace and connection with all the elements and the sentient Beings of the sea. Last trip was a rare day when we didn't see any, and it was a great day anyway......and we get a rain check. How good is that!. MzB.
