We all had a great time and would love to go back for more. Since we went April 30th we did not expect to see any whales. It was a beautiful day on a very nice boat with nice staff and they did diligently try to find whales for us. The staff was very nice and accommodating to peoples needs.

Great crew, great dolphin sightings!

Having done some research and read others reviews, I went on this trip with the understanding that I may not see any whales this late in the season. I booked this trip because of the location to where I was staying, the price (half price Tuesday) and a recommendation from a family member who has taken the cruise before. I have to say, I was not disappointed! The crew were all terrific, the boat was clean & comfortable and the refreshments available were great. I also like the fact that if no dolphins or whales were sighted, you would be issued a credit for a future cruise. We were lucky enough to see seals and LOTS of playful dolphins. We spent a lot of time with them and our captain explained their feeding habits and general behavior. I would HIGHLY recommend this whale watch to anyone. You may not see whales, but you will have a wonderful day!

Take it or leave it

The whale watch was just okay. We didn't see any whales, however we do understand that it's the end of the grey whale migration. We did see dolphins and sea lions. We enjoyed the trip, although I thought 2 hours was a little short. The staff were friendly but not very exciting. I'd say it's a good tour if you just want to go out and see what you may see, but don't expect too much.

We enjoyed this cruise very much. We did not see any whales but saw hundreds of playful dolphins. The crew spent time making sure that everyone was able to enjoy the dolphins swimming around the boat.

Nice boat ride

It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the boat ride. The staff was great, attentive. We thought the cost of the activity was reasonable but were dissapointed that we didn't see any whales or dolphins. So it was basically just a ride out on the ocean. We did get rain check or "whale" check tickets to use at another time but that's hard when you have guests visiting from out of town. We will try using the tickets next year and maybe try to go out in March instead of April.

I've lived in California all my life until 1993 then moved to Oklahoma. Took some friends and 2 teenage kids and all of us enjoyed this very much. We saw female Humpback whale with Calf. Plus we saw Sea Lions. Was a great adventure and next time we return to California, we will sure go again. Also have told friends and relatives about your tours. Thank you for the wonderful time.

First time ever going whale watching and we had a lot of fun. We didn't see any whales or dolphins but we seen a group of sea lions. Due to the fact that we didn't see any whales or dolphins we were given tickets to return for another visit and they don't expire. It was a great deal. We had so much fun we can't wait to go back!

Fantastic Experience
Sun, Apr 12, 09   10:00 AM CecileKay Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My family had the most wonderful time on this cruise. The boat is spacious, clean, and beautiful. It has ample seating with large tables to relax both inside and outside. There are three levels to it, making it interesting to move about the boat and experience the cruise from different perspectives. They have a very nice food service on board at reasonable prices in case you didn't bring your own. The three men in the crew are friendly, informative, and delightful. We saw sea lions and a huge pod of dolphins which were thrilling to watch as they swam and jumped all around us. We didn't see any whales but honestly it didn't matter because the whole experience was marvelous with the dolphins and everything else I mentioned. Apparently dolphins are part of the whale family, so technically we got what we paid for. The best money we spent on our California vacation!!!!
