Dolphins were great!

Even though we didn't see any whales the two pods of dolphins we saw were great. We've never seen so many dolphins and the crew seemed very knowledgeable about them. We enjoyed our time on the boat.

Somewhat Disappointing
Thu, Jul 3  2:00 PM Steve7 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We didn't see any whales, which isn't the sole reason for the disappointment (I understand that there has to be luck involved). What I was really disappointed about was the the crew provided no commentary throughout the two hour cruise, except for some comments regarding the sighting of several dolphins towards the end of the excursion. It would have been nice if the crew provided some information on whales in general and perhaps some stories on prior sightings, etc. They all looked bored with their jobs.

FUN...but disappointing

It was a great two hours for the price however we didn't get to see any whales. We did get to see dolphins. Since it's not guaranteed to see whales I don't think i'd pay again to chance not seeing whales again. Still had a good time on the boat.

We had an amazing time. We were not expecting to see whales due to the season but a Minske whale surfaced several times, and he came close to the boat even though tour guide warned us they are kind of shy. We then had tons of dolphins sightings, they were speeding along beside and in front of our boat. So much fun! Clean, on time, knowledgeable guide. Recommended!

We had the best time. My son and I did this same trip last year and it did not disappoint this year.
