Love Whales

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.

Great way to spend a few hours

My daughter and I really enjoyed the Grey Whale Tour. The whales eluded us but we had a great time watching the dolphins. The equipment and crew were first rate. Really good value for the cost - especially in Southern California. Do it!

Great experience!

Great experience! We actually went out twice, due to left over wind conditions the first day. The captains on both boats were friendly, informative and you could tell they love what they do. Although we didn't see any whales either time we went out (which was disappointing)the scenary was fabulous. We did see some dolphins the second day and that was cool. This was the first time 3 of the 4 of us had been out on a boat like this and it was very nice. I would do it again if I return to California in the future.

OUr first day was canceled because of high winds- so next day tried again. GOt on the boat but it was windy and chilly, no whales . . . . sea lions, dolphins, but no whales. WE had 9 in our group and 3 of us barfed!. Hmmmmm. Probably wouldnt go again, although the crew was friendly and informative and gave us tickets to come back again any time and try to see the whales but all in all. . . . wouldn't do it again.

A preventable disaster

Our whale watching was cancelled due to wind and rescheduled for the next day. We arrived with great expectations but what we got was sick due to the rough waters reculting from continued wind. Granted the wind was much lighter than the day before but cauised problems even at the lower force. We all took a dramamine just in case. In hind sight we may have been better served by taking more. Four of our group vomited violently while the rest of the group turned green. Not a single whale was spotted. The tour group gave us vouchers to some aback and try again free of charge which would have sufficed if we lived near by but we don't and so we spent our money for nothing. Leah Ann Manning

We didn't see anything! No whales! No dolphins! The captain tried really hard and right when time was about up..we saw the spout in the distance..that's as close as we got! We received a Whale Check to go back for free! Hopefully we have better luck next time!

Too long

the boat was too slow and upon arrival we had only but 15 minutes to wait for the whales to surface. another boat, same category, passed us on the way out and loitered around the whales much longer than we did. frankly not worth the price.

3 kinds of dolphins and a fin whale!

Highly recommended. I went with my kids (ages 7 and almost 5). Crew was knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot about the animals we saw (3 kinds of dolphin and some fin whales-- we got lucky!). We all enjoyed watching the dolphins play in the wake off the bow of the boat. Breakfast (scrambled eggs, bacon, and potatoes) was great. Overall, a lovely trip that we are still talking about.

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.

Whale watching

We had a nice outing with a very a good company seeing sea lions and dolphins. Unfortunately, no whales. However, the company made it clear that we may or may not see whales before we purchased tickets. Even in the absence of whales it was a good trip.
