The Best Way To Spend Your Day!

I can't wait to go again! Reasonable prices, tons of surrounding shops and eateries on the water, the captain and crew were not only incredibly knowledgeable but so much fun as well! Did YOU know baby dolphins look like footballs with fins? I do, thanks to the Captain of the Clemente. :) Highly recommend to anyone of any age. I went with a friend, but lots of couples and children as well. Fun for everyone! And they passed out discount vouchers for next time to all of the passengers when we exited the vessel after our tour!

Day of Fun!

Went on excursion in hopes of seeing whales - there were absolutely NO whales in sight. We did stumble upon a pod of dolphins which were pretty amazing and quite playful.

One whale, lots of dolphins!

We only saw one whale, but there were dozens upon dozens of dolphins. Some were even jumping out of the water. I recommend the 2 hour tour; we were getting hungry by the end and I don't think we would have made it through 4 hours!

WHALE SEARCHING - NO WATCHING
Sun, Mar 6, 11   2:00 PM BRUCEBLINN Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
TRIP WAS FUN CREW WAS GREAT, SAW NO WHALES, GUESS WE WERE LATE NO DOLPHINS EITHER BUT IT WASN'T A WASTE, THEY GAVE US FREE TICKETS FOR SOME OTHER DATE. THE PREVIOUS TOUR (12PM TO 2PM) REPORTED SEEING 1000'S OF DOLPHINS BUT NO WHALES OUR TOUR (2PM TO 4PM) SAW NO WHALES OR DOLPHINS SO THEY GAVE EVERYONE FOREVER RAIN CHECKS THAT CAN BE USED WHENEVER. THE TRIP WAS STILL WORTHWHILE JUST GETTING OUT ON THE OCEAN AND SEEING THE COASTLINE FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. SEEING NO WHALES WASN'T THE CREWS FAULT, THEY HAD BINOCCULARS AIMED IN ALL DIRECTIONS. WASN'T THE WHALES FAULT EITHER, THEY JUST WERN'T AROUND AT THAT TIME. REMEMBER THE OCEAN IS HUGE, AND COMPARED TO IT THE WHALES AREN'T THAT BIG, NEEDLE IN A HAYSTACK KIND OF THING. OVERALL IT WAS A FUN WAY TO SPEND MY BIRTHDAY, BESIDES- THEY HAD A FULL BAR ONBOARD AND WITH THE ROCKING OF THE BOAT NO ONE KNEW WHO HAD TO MUCH TO DRINK AS EVERYONE INCLUDING THE KIDS WERE FAILING THE "WALKING A STRAIGHT LINE TEST" - HILIARIOUS! I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO REDEEMING OUR "SEE NO WHALE OR DOLPHIN GET A FREE TRIP" TICKET. (WHICH IS A MORE THAN A FAIR POLICY CONSIDERING GAS PRICES THESE DAYS AND THE COST TO RUN THAT BOAT - THE (" DANA PRIDE"). ALSO DANA WHARF IS A GREAT PLACE TO SPEND A FEW HOURS ON EITHER END OF THE TRIP. SO I SAY GO FOR IT.

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!

Great Birthday Party!

We went on a morning Whale Watch for my son's birthday party and it was GREAT! All the kids had so much fun! We didn't see any whales, but it didn't matter at all to the kids because we saw LOTS of dolphins and sea lions and they enjoyed just being on the boat! We will definitely be doing this trip again!
