Meet a whale

It was a great experience to see the whale. It was little far from the boat and I could not see them in big. But there is a rule to be in distance, so it is understandable. It is a disappointment that I did not see even one dolphin this time. I should come back again.

Two of us went on Jan 2nd at 10am. The fog had gone out to sea and it was cold but sunny. The captain was in touch with other boats so we headed to where a whale was reported. She was pretty far out but we could see the water sprout from her blowhole. That was exciting, but then we saw two on the land side of the boat spouting water. One had to catch up with the one further away, but then they were swimming in tandom and decided to go deep for food. THAT'S WHEN THE TAILS COME UP! It was spectacular to see both of them swimming and diving together. The captain gave us a history lesson and explained what the whales werie doing, where they were going & why, and when they would return. He was very good! My friend had gone out several times but only seen the spouts. Boy was she excited to see the tails! I came to CA for the Rose Bowl Parade & then we decided to go whale watching on the next day. I'm so glad we did! I will always remember the whales much more than the parade. A wonderful way to begin the new year.

We were able to see a gray whale for an extended period of time as he traveled south. Then we were able to experience a large pod of dolphins swimming close to the boat . It was such a special experience.

The boat was the perfect size, not to crowded. The captain was so knowledgable, we learned so much! We saw hundreds of dolphins, the 2nd largest whale in the world and sea lions! We had such an amazing tour!!

it was a nice boat ride

The boat was well maintained and clean and appeared to be a sturdy vessel. The captain was interactive and cordial with the group on the boat. However, he couldn't find much for us to look at. So I would not call my experience a whale watching tour but more a nice 2 hour boat ride.

2 Whales from 500 yards away

When I first arrived, I was told I could not board until I paid more money. Huh! We already have a contract/ticket for this price. They said the coupon used was not valid on this voyage. (How convenient!) Your website accepted the coupon and issued the ticket, right? Excuses!--none valid! The only thing to see on this trip was people vomiting(at least 12) And a lot of people pissed that they had to pay extra for no reason. I saw 2 whales(one from 500 yards away, and one from 1000 yards away.) I saw about 10 dolphins and half a dozen sea lions on a buoy. Not worth the price!
