excellent sitings and superb commentary

Very enjoyable and educational outing. The captains explanations and additional commentary were well worth it. I would like to point out for future customers that there are many discount deals available, including free trips on your birthday and 40% off if you use them to go to Catalina prevously.

Staff was friendly even if customers were not. We didn't see a whale, but they don't guarantee that you will. The dolphin's were cool.

Great Adventure

It was a great day at sea! We went on the 5pm trip and saw dolphins and sea lions. We didn't see any blue whales, but the trip was still awesome because it is well worth just the boat ride alone. You can move around the boat at your leisure (we were on the Sum Fun and it was not crowded) and if you stand at the bow you can get splashed with water. I would go back for a gray whale expedition in the winter. I would highly recommend this trip for vacationers and locals alike. We could see Saddleback Mountain. The only area for improvement might be for the Captain and Skipper to give more information on points of interest along the shoreline as the boat heads back to shore.

Good crew, great turnout of dolphins and whales

Combination of family from in state and Colorado, tour left on time and we were in the fishing boat. Partly due to the skill of the captain and partly due to the boat running on only one engine we were running slow and quiet enough to catch up with hundreds of dolphins and 6 grey whales. Skipper said it was the most amazing turnout he had ever seen. Everyone in our party agrees.

We had so much fun! The boat staff was so friendly and helpful. And we went straight to where the whales were that morning. The kids loved the whole trip! Thank you for a great day on the ocean!

We found whales within 15 minutes or so. The boat stayed with them for the entire trip with narration from the captain. The food was good. I would reccomend this service to friends and family & I found being able to scedule online great.

The crew and all staff were very friendly. The trip was delightful since we got to see plenty of dolphins and a few gray whales.

Thank god for the dolphins and sea lions! Not to mention the bloody marys! All in all it was worth getting up for! Haven't given up on seeing a whale up close and personal! Until that day, The discovery channel will have to do!

A Whale of a Time

My mother, best friend, and myself had a great time on this whale watching excursion. We saw two grey whales, a pod of dolphins, and some adorable seals. Thankfully the crew also handed out 50% off coupons for the next time and I can't wait to use them! Thanks for a great tiem!
