Not Impressed

After the trip was over and we had not seen whales, I felt that I had been had. We were told that we would get a free trip if no whales or dolphins were seen. The first thing the ship did was head out and show us dolphins, which was nice, but not what we had come to see. Then the next hour was spent cruising around supposedly looking for whales. I think they knew there weren't any whales in the area at that time and rather than be truthful up front and since they obviously sell tickets each day whales or no whales, it is a bit of a hustle.

missed the opportunity

UNfortunately my fiancee became ill that morning so we did not go... we were told that there were no refunds or opportunities to re-book... which would be my only complaint.

The 10:00 tour was not crowded so allowed easy viewing. We saw several whales. I love whale watching so can never have a bad time.

The crew really made efforts to show us the blue whale and we saw where it was (water spout) but the whale wasn't so cooperative in coming above the surface! The crew then made a successful effort to catch up with a pod of dolphins and we were able to watch the dolphins on both sides of the boat swimming and jumping out of the water. This was a neat experience! The boat was not too crowded so it made viewing easy. I would recommend this cruise to others.

disappointed.

Not because we did not see any whales, but because there were too many people and even if the whales did come by not everyone could visualize them. Unless you are standing at the "exact" spot or you have a bench up on top. I would have paid extra to sit on top if offered instead of "first come, first serve" . But the weather was beautiful and so I enjoyed the beautiful ocean and land views...

Boat personnel were great, but the ocean was rough

The weather had been beautiful, up to the day we had scheduled our whale watching tour. A big storm was coming in, and the ocean was very rough. Several in our group got seasick, as did many others on the boat. We did not see any whales or dolphins. But the good news is that we were given a return trip ticket for free, which is good forever (as long as we don't lose it). We have been whale watching before, and had a wonderful time. Just our luck to get bad weather! We do plan to go again. The crew and employees were great, the boat was clean and roomy.

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
