Great seeing the dolphins they were very social and fun loving. Wonderful 2 hr boat ride in the clear blue ocean; well maintained boat. Guide did a great job getting us a view of the 1 gray whale that surfaced a few times.

Wonderful day on the ocean, we could see Palos Verdes Penninsula to the north and Catalina was crystal clear! Beautiful scenic trip up to Laguna Beach, spotted one gray whale and pods of "rare" white sided dolphins. The boat was clean, the staff very helpful and the scenic cruise up the coast was wonderful. It was fun to see my childhood beach in Laguna from the "ocean" view. GREAT time had by all and look forward to doing it again ASAP. Thank you all so much!!

The Best!

This was my 3rd excursion with these guys and we saw a whale!! Even if we hadn't, it would have been a great day just to be out on the water. The captain stayed with the whale for about an hour of the excursion so there was plenty of opportunity for all to take photos or videos. We've had the same captain every time and he's great! The crew is nice and the boat is clean. We won't go out with any other excursion company. These guys are the best.

Whales must have been at lunch as we saw just small parts of 5 far off and no dolphins. Boat before us got treated to a pod of orcas!

This excursion was WONDERFUL! The captain of the boat worked hard to find us Whales and was very knowledgeable and educational. He maintained a respectable, yet close, distance to the animals. The trip was 2 hours and we were all really sorry to see it end. This is an inexpensive and wonderful way to spend an afternoon and is definitely something I will do again.

Whale Watching

Although we didn't see any whales I was not disappointed. I saw dolphins playing and jumping in the water. I had never seen them other than Sea World before. They were very close to the boat and I could see the different types of dolphins. It was very exciting. I also saw many sea lions floating in the ocean with their flippers pointed towards the sun. The two hours was the perfect amount of time. It was a wonderful experience I plan on enjoying again.

Excellent trip!

We really enjoyed this activity. While we didn't see any whales, we were thrilled to see a huge pod of dolphins- some of which swam in the wake of the boat. We also saw some sea lions. The crew was very knowledgeable about marine animals and provided very helpful information. It was a beautiful trip and just the right length. Since we didn't see any whales they also provided a 50% off coupon for our next trip if we were able to return. While we were perfectly happy with our trip, this coupon was a nice bonus!

Two great experiences!

We recently brought friends visiting from Pittsburgh on a whale watching trip. The adults and kids enjoyed it completely. We were lucky enough to follow a mother whale with her baby for a long time, and to top it off, they were joined by several bottle nose dolphin! I could not have been happier to share the experience with my good friends! A once in a lifetime experience for many!
