We left at eight in the morning and were off in the search of a whale. just when i thought we were ready to head back, we got a report of a whale in the area nearby... sure enough we saw one.. and it BREACHED fully out of the water!!!!!!!! landing with a big splash... and it blew out of its blow hole a few times and did a few tale flips for us... it was happy to see us.. =) great, fun time if you get the chance to go.

Too cold and windy for whale watching

Two hours was 1 hr too long because it was cloudy, foggy and freezing cold, (even though I brought 2 blankets). My teenagers couldn't wait to go back because it was so cold & windy. We did see few dolphins and seals. I would recommend this trip to my friends only during the summer or spring. We got some coupons toward our next trip at the end of the tour which was nice.

Amazing whale watching experience

We got extremely lucky on the Valentines day sunset cruise and stumbled upon a pod of fin whales. They are ordinarily shy and aloof, but we saw them surface and even lunge feed several times from close proximity. Pretty amazing. Even without the great sightings, the boat was smooth, the crew was nice, the other passengers were gracious and fun. Go.

Enjoyed the trip tremendously. While rain threatened and it was chilly,the experience was great. It was the first Whale Watch for my wife and she really enjoyed it. The boat was clean, the crew was very courteous and knowledgeable. They made the effort to make sure that if Whales were to be found that we would get to see them. Nice Job! Definitely a return trip in the future.

We had such a great time! The whole crew was friendly, knowledgeable and enjoyable. We had a pod of dolphins.......around 5,000 of them, following our boat, they were incredibly playful surfing on the wake from our boat, and then we saw a 70-80 ft. whale. We highly recommend this Whale Cruise!

Beautiful day

Our boat was the first of the day to see a gray whale. I have never been that close to a whale. The pod of dolphins we saw was huge, there had to be at least a hundred dolphins jumping in and out of the water. I do recommend having a camera with no delay if you want pictures. The crew was very friendly and informative. Best place to be is in the front of the boat.

pleasant but long

It took a while for the boat to get out to where we could see whales. The kids that i had with me age 3 and two aged 8 had gotten really bored with waiting as we didnt see any whales until the tour was almost over. Be sure to bring snacks and water, if not they are sold inside the cabin on the boat. which by the way you cannot see whales through because people crowd in front of the windows on the deck when a whale is seen. Bring a sweater and a jacket. There is a big temperature difference the farther you go out into the ocean especially if there is a breeze. I recommend this trip if you have the patience and older children.

Educational experience

We took the 2 hour boat trip and it was so nice it didn't seem that long out on the water. So exciting that we actually viewed a whale. The entire boat was caught up in the moment that we all exclaimed "there it is" each time the whale surfaced. I wish we would have been able to come upon a group of whales but it was still an experience to remember.
