Great cruise on the boat! Saw Dolphins and Sea Lions, but no whales, as it was a bit early. Can't wait to come back to see them!

Even though we didn't see any whales and less dolphins than we usually do, we had a great time.

While your odds of seeing a whale greatly depend on luck, just being out on the ocean makes the whole trip worthwhile. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. We were lucky enough to see an incredible pod of dolphin on our trip and watched them for about an hour.

Fantastic Experience

My family had the most wonderful time on this cruise. The boat is spacious, clean, and beautiful. It has ample seating with large tables to relax both inside and outside. There are three levels to it, making it interesting to move about the boat and experience the cruise from different perspectives. They have a very nice food service on board at reasonable prices in case you didn't bring your own. The three men in the crew are friendly, informative, and delightful. We saw sea lions and a huge pod of dolphins which were thrilling to watch as they swam and jumped all around us. We didn't see any whales but honestly it didn't matter because the whole experience was marvelous with the dolphins and everything else I mentioned. Apparently dolphins are part of the whale family, so technically we got what we paid for. The best money we spent on our California vacation!!!!

We took our 6 year old and 9 year old out on the 8:00 boat ride having just arrived from Texas the night before (experiencing a 2 hour time differential and the morning daylight savings took effect)... obviously we did not take that into account when booking! However, despite the very early rise, we loved every second of it. We live on the coast of Texas, but have never had the opportunity to see whales. It was fantastic! The kids loved it and so did we. The boat was spacious, and the staff was great. I would strongly recommend dressing in layers and taking a high speed camera.
