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.

Blue whales a magnificent sight

We had a great time on what seemed to be a brand new boat and, most important, got to see two blue whales and a fin whale. The captain had wasted no time taking us out to the area the blues were frequenting as this was the creature we all wanted to see. It was an unforgettable experience, seeing the world's largest living creatures

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful day out on the ocean seeing not only whales, but many, many dolphins. The crew was helpful and informative. This trip was truly a delight - I'd do it all over again! :-)

Although we only saw one whale, it was a great trip - sunny, clear, calm. I would go again just to get 2 hours out on the ocean.

Worth the money...

We saw 2 fin whales and many many dolphins. We didn't get too close to the whales for fear of frightening them, and we only saw their dorsal fins. The pool of 66 dolphins is what made this trip worth the money. Should be called dolphin watching not whale watching.

Doesn't get any better than that

The whale watching was more that we hoped for! It was a beautiful calm day and we saw hundreds of Dolphins and six whales. We were able to watch both for 45 min. plus. The captain seemed very knowledgeable and overall it was a great experience. My only complaint is the boat was pretty crowded and my small children had difficulty seeing the whales because of needing to be lifted up above the many people. So get in line early and head for the bow of the boat!

No whales, but they sure tried. Had a great sunset out at sea.
