A whale of a time!

Everyone on board will enjoy this voyage. The crew was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They took us straight to the whales and respectfully followed them for a while assuring that we all got that once in a lifetime picture of the flukes (tail) coming out of the water. It was a wonderful family experience.

Whale watching was a little disappointing, as the whales we saw were far away, but we did see a whale rolling over, a fin in the air, and many spouts of water. However, the 20-30 dolphins we saw swimming next to the boat made it worth it!!

My husband and myself were very much thrilled with whole experience. We had previously gone out of San Pedro and Newport Beach. Although the drive from Placentia was farther the overall experience was super!!! We found that the boat was clean and maintained, the staff friendly and very informative when it came to the whole experience. We did not feel crowded into a small space to observe the whales and dolphins. I would actually recommend this Whale Watching Cruise to all my friends. Thanks for the wonderful time on the sea!!!!

We took the 10 am cruise and were able to enjoy not only great weather but a terrific experience. Captain was very knowledgable and after leading us to schools of dolphin brought us within photographic distance of several grey whales. Only negative part about the trip was the number of other boats with inexperienced skippers who tended to spook the whales and prevented us from getting a closer look. Nevertheless, a very enjoyable experience.

I'm kinda paranoid about being in the ocean, but this whale watching trip was a blast. The captain was informative, and the crew professional. We saw common dolphins and 3 gray whales.

Well organized, knowledgable guide/captain. Alas, for the 2 hours they spent most of the time in shallow waters finding dolphins (and we did see lots of them), which left little time to see whales.

Beautiful Day

We went on the 9am ride on Sunday. We knew it was chilly so we dressed warm. The sun was out, no clouds but I'm glad I wore gloves, so comfortable. We saw tons of dolphins, swimming with the boat, jumping in and out of the water. Super beautiful. The whale we saw was super shy and we only saw him break the water to breath. Oh well. I would recommend this trip to easy going people who are looking to spend some time on the water with the prospect of seeing a whale. The dolphins and the commentary from the Captain were fantastic.

Great Job, but the 3 crewmen missed the 1 whale in front of the boat. A guest pointed it out.
