Good, if pricey whale/dolphin watching excursion

Decent enough experience - clean boat, good overall service. The boat confidently steams out and finds a group of dolphins just off the coast, stays there for a while (dolphins are fun to watch but very common!) and then goes off for an hour or so searching for whales or anything else interesting. It's nature and of course hit and miss. Going from the observation log on their website they're pretty honest about something like one in four boats seeing any larger mammals than the dolphins. Then at some point they give up and swing about and return to port. You got to see whales - the dolphins - so what's your complaint? At the price paid I would have liked a slightly longer excursion, or some kind of organized spotting effort to increase chance of exotic encounters. But I guess for most passengers the duration is fine.

Although my niece & I did not see any whales or dolphins (which is unusual), we did see sea lions, have a great boat ride, & witness stunning views of our local coastline. And in the end, because our excursion did not see whales or dolphins, we did receive free whale-watching tickets that don't expire & can be used anytime.

We had a great time. We saw many dolphins, including some babies, and we did breifly spot one fin whale. The captain and the naturalist on the boat were very helpful and friendly and did everything to help us see a whale, even though we were a few minutes late back to the dock. I would definitely go again!

Sea lions, dolphins & a whale

Whale watching is of course dependent on whales being in the area to begin with, so in that regard we were lucky. That said, Captain Tom and Larry(?) did an amazing job of getting us where the action was, tracking a large pack of sea lions, a huge pod of dolphins and keeping us just astern of a gray whale and predicting with remarkable accuracy when and where it would surface. I got sea sick and Larry's good advice got me through the worst of it and had me feeling human before we got back to shore. Recommended. Dress warmly.

The whale watching excursion was nice. We saw several dolphins but were disappointed we did not see any actual whales. The crew was nice and the overall trip was relaxing and enjoyable. If you really want to see whales though you may be disappointed.

Each member in my party thoroughly enjoyed themselves on our trip, even though the weather was very cold outside. We were able to see a grey whale, a pod of dolphins, and some sea lions - it was great! We would definitely take this trip again in the future!
