My significant other and I wanted to experience the ocean. During whale weekend, we didn't see any whales but sure enjoyed the dolphins and the show they put on. It was great, the service down below for drinks and food was amazing. The captain informed us of many pieces of information we never ever would've know about! LOVED IT! ps my s.o. is a smart bumm, with the name of poophead... lol

Best deal in Southern OC. 2 hour boat ride with numerous dolphins (don't expect to see a whale).

We didn't see any whales, but the views, dolphins, and crew were great!! We will go again in hopes of a whale of a good time. I don't know why we waited so many years to go. Remember, it is about 10% cooler on the ocean.

Great 89th birthday gift

It was my father's 89th birthday, he had never been on the ocean and eager to see Whales and Dolphins. While we did not see a whale, we had the adventure of our lifetime as the captain spotted a large group of dolphin of all ages. They stayed close to our boat for what seemed like and hour. It was an incredible experience for my father as well as my 19th year old son. We had an amazing time!

My wife and I took this trip during our vacation from the UK on January 24th . We saw 2 grey whales on their migration, but this was not the highlight for us as we have seen whales up much closer in Newfoundland, Canada. The best part for us was the large pod of, according to our guide 1000+ common dolphins. They were all around the boat, in front, behind, to the sides. This was fantastic. If you want to see dolphins and whales don't go to Sea World, take this tour! Brilliant, and with very knowledgeable guides!

It was just OK

We were out there for around 2 hours. It was a nice and pleasant day. We only saw one grey whale going by. Seeing a grey whale surface and then dive down showing off its beautiful fluke, was spectacular. But somehow I expected more out of this short trip, I was hoping to see more whales, maybe some species of dolphins but for me , personally, after the 15 minutes of watching the beautiful whale, the trip was kinda flat. Not much else to see but the ocean. I guess its all luck, one day you see everything, the other not so much.

Outstanding whale watching trip

There's never a guarantee of seeing whales but we saw a pod of 4 whales plus an individual whale. Then we saw hundreds of dolphins - 3 different species. Crew was informative and very friendly. Because it was the last trip of the day (the 2pm boat) we stayed out an extra half hour or so because there was so much to see.
