We were entertaining out of town guests. Our whale watching tour was lots of fun with a friendly and informative crew. We saw dolphins and grey whales.

Fun but not thrilling

Though I know you can not control if we see whales, it is the whales (not dolphins or sea lions) we pay to see. Otherwise, everyone was friendly and informative.

Love the whale watching boat. Staff is awesome and very informative. Great thing to do with a group of friends or on a date. Last time we went we saw whales this time was only dolphins. But even if you don't see the whales it is still a great experience.

No whales seen on our trip

We did not see any whales on our trip, but we were given vouchers to use on any return trip. We are from Indiana, but plan on going out to California again in the next couple of years. They said that the vouchers were good forever, so we plan to use them later. Seas were pretty choppy that day. Crew seemed helpful. would recommend this to friends

Nice to have tickets in advance

It was nice to have the tickets in advance. The website was easy and fast to use. When we arrived at our location we still had to wait in a long line to turn our tickets in to the person at the counter in order to get the Whale Watching tickets. I would like to see that step eliminated.

Whales, Dolphins, and Seals...Oh My!

Went out on the water and not 15 minutes later were already on the tail of two California Gray Whales. The captain and the man on deck giving information were extremely helpful. We wee always on top of the whales. We managed to find seals and dolphins along the way as well. Drinks were reasonably priced too. All in all, a great experience. Well worth the time and money.

Nice trip but no whales - did get a "whalecheck"

We had a great time and they tried to find the whales. They even offered a longer trip when they found out where some whales were, but there were people on board that had to be back at 5:00. They gave us all rainchecks to come back for another trip.

Too crowded on boat and no whales or dolphins
Sun, Mar 14, 10   3:00 PM DesireeGreen Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
There were too many people on the boat and several families brought on large strollers which took up even more room. Occasionally the captain would get on the microphone but it was so staticy, we could not understand him and to top it off not only did we not see any whales, we did not see any dolphins either. We did however see a group of seals and in the end they returned our tickets to us but the problem was I had gone with a friend from out of town so she will never be able to use that returned ticket.
