we didn't see any whales or dolphins and therefore got two free tickets for a future ride with no expiration date. That was worth it

The boat was comfortable. The crew was excellent. But, not a whale in site and only two dolphins. Nice boat ride though.

Our guide went out of his way to make sure we saw the grey whales. He was an expert who shared info in such a way that we learned while waiting to see the whales. His commentary didn't interfere with the sightings and enhanced our experience with these magnificent creatures.

Not My Cup of Tea

If you enjoy being herded onto a boat and taken to a point out along the coast to stare into dark, dismal water then this is the trip for you. The day I participated it was very cold, overcast and dreary. We rode out along the coast, which took about thirty minutes and watched for a whale to appear. We did see one, although very briefly. Everyone flocked to one side of the boat to see the elusive whale and I felt as though I were in a can of sardines. We headed back to shore afterward and I must say, I was happy to get off the boat. I vowed if I ever go whale watching again, it will be in Hawaii!

Nice boat ride but no whales visible.

Nice boat ride on a nice day. No whales. Boat company gives you a complimentary ticket if no whales are seen. This ticket has no expiration date on it! Good marketing!

Captain was very negative in his talk.

I have taken this trip many times before with great pleasure. However, this captain was preoccupied talking with other ships and would tell us where the whales had come up but it was not until the very end that anyone believed that there were whales to be seen. He talked about sea lice and the killing of whales and the people on the boat were just shaking their heads. There are so many beautiful things that can be said about the whales and the dolphins and these things have been shared iin the past by other captains. We did not see one dolphin which was very unusual.
