Strategic boat position to facilitate whale watchg

The crew members presented a very informative dialogue on whale history. The captain always had a good view of the whales as the boat was always pointed toward whale location. Guests gravitated to side where whales were sighted. It was not always possible for all guests to have a look at the whales. If the boat had been strategically positioned, everyone could have had a better view.

A very friendly group of guides. Very knowledgeable of all sea life and their habits and patterns. Went way out of the way to find a gray whale and found him and cruised with him for a while. Cruised for quite some time with the dolphin as well. They made you very comfortable and walked around making sure that all questions were answered and nobody was unsatisfied. This was for my daughters birthday and we did an early afternoon cruise, it was perfect and a perfect fun beginning to her day!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! They were too cool and it was way fun!!!

I decided to surprise my girlfriend by taking her here because her favorite animal are dolphins. Even though we didn't happen to see any whales on this specific trip there were dolphins galore! Personally I had never seen so many of them and they swim right up to the ship so they are easy to see! We definitely had a great time! Crew and everyone were very nice and knowledgable as well. Worth it.

It was a fun trip for all of us. We saw so many Dolphins and Sea Lions, but we weren't lucky to see any Whales. My kids were so excited to see the Dolphins in their natural environment. My little one was telling to everybody in school the next day about her trip and that she saw Dolphins coming under the boat. She was so happy. It is one in a lifetime opportunity to watch Dolphins and Whales in their natural habitat playing and swimming. We went their with my cousins who came to visit us. They also had a wonderful trip. I think it's a wonderful family outing. The boats are big and spacious and they have a small sitting area where you can sit and eat inside the boat. You can also see whales and dolphins from the top roof of the boat.

Whales but no whales?

As an advise, I really recommend if you don't like ocean, or you know you can have nausea, please don't go on board. Vomit is not something very cool, if you trow in the ocean, its ok, but inside the boat, not very cool. So, please, think about that and think there's other people with you in the boat. We were not able to see any whale, the weather conditions were not good, ocean very rough and many white waves. Basically it was a nice round trip in a boat for a couple of hours. They give us passes to go see the whales again sometime in the future. I love ocean, I didn't care much about not seeing whales, also because I live in the area, I can basically go anytime. It's just a matter of luck.

The crew were so friendly and really enjoy their job. The boat is comfortable with plenty of room. Only wish we could have stayed longer but didn't find the whale until about time to go in. But got a few really great pictures. Our visit was too short but there can not be a bad trip when you can see something as majestic as these beautiful creatures. I am already planning my next trip.

NOT AS ADVERTISED
Sun, Jan 10, 10   12:00 PM racellemanes Female 70+ Local Family With Children
The boat was not on time but we were. The boat was small, bare, the galley - ha ha. Advertised as a galley to buy food. There were soft drinks and chips. The crew (we only saw one crew member in the galley) was remote and far from interested in us. After all we were a family with two small children - 5 and 8, mom and dad and grandmother. There was virtually no education. Just a few small facts about porpoises from a crew that was unseen, sitting in a top cabin. Some scattered facts about gray whales. I would never take this boat again. It was a bare minimum trip. Racelle Manes Ticket buyer of about $130.00. I took a similar trip when my son was in middle school out of San Pedro that was so much better. Not comparable really.
