We went out on a Tuesday and it was wonderful. Not only did we get to see 3 whales but the captain was great about explaing everything we were seeing. I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting but also to those who live here.

I finally saw a Grey Whale....

I've been on many whale watching trips since I has in junior high and I finally saw one. It didn't come out of the water very much, just breathing. I was able to catch with my digital camera. This definitely made my weekend, being the Festival of Whales and all!

A great whale watching trip
Wed, Feb 25, 09   2:00 PM DICKCHAPMAN Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The weather was great, warm and sunny, but it was late in the season for the southerly migration and not really ready for the return north, so expectation was not high. After only 10 minutes at sea the skipper spotted a grey whale heading south and got us close by, without spooking the whale. It was wonderful to see it close up. We will certainly go again and now we are better informed as to times etc. we will choose a better time to view and probably take a longer trip. Thanks to the operators

Fun but should be called Dolphin Watching

We took this trip in February during grey whale season. I like that the boat wasn't overcrowded (we could see a different company's boat leaving at the same time and they were far more crowded than we were), and I enjoyed the information from the captain over the speaker. He was very knowledgable. We saw a large pod of dolphins and it was great fun watching them play around the boat for a while. Then we headed over to a rock off of San Clemente with seals and sea lions on it, and that was fun too. But we didn't see any whales and it felt like that captain knew fairly early that we weren't going to see any so he just showed us the dolphins and seals, and he didn't bother going out where there may be whales.

Afternoon on the Ocean
Thu, Feb 19, 09   12:00 PM DANMUELLER Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
It was a beautiful sunny day, although chilly. Warm clothing is recommended. We unfortunately did not see any whales, but did see a huge pod of dolphins that swam with the boat for quite a while. This made it all worthwhile. We would definately go out again!

Loved the Ocean!
Wed, Feb 18, 09   10:00 AM Lylekayhart Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We loved the ocean, watching the dolphins playing! Seeing a little bit of the whale was awesome! We booked the trip and went 3 times! It was SO much fun! The first trip we saw tons of dolphins and sea lions and 1 whale! 2nd trip we didn't see anything, but still enjoyed the boat tour! - And since we didn't see dolphins or whales we received our ticket back stamped for a free trip, so we took our 3rd trip & we again saw tons of dolphins and sea lions! We would definitely recommend this tour! The staff was GREAT! :)

Each member in my party thoroughly enjoyed themselves on our trip, even though the weather was very cold outside. We were able to see a grey whale, a pod of dolphins, and some sea lions - it was great! We would definitely take this trip again in the future!
