We were pleasantly surprised. The boat was large and comfortable, the crew and Captain were outstanding! We already made plans to do this again in July. Can't wait to see the Blue Whale's :)

Rare opportunity off CA coast

Found a whale fairly quickly, soon joined by another. Watch as the whale breached about three times. Another whale joined, now we are watching three whales. In a rare opportunity we were able to observe the whales mating. This was unbelievable, and kept the whales on top of the water most of time.

Awe inspiring! Breathtaking! I smiled the whole time. I was happy just seeing all the dolphins play but to actually spot a whale and see it's tail while hearing a live informative narrative was awesome. I was there with my niece because it was on our bucket list but I would highly recommend it for a date. There's food, a bar and even the NFL on the tv during the trip and it's the smoothest ride.

I was able to book the morning of my departure. Staff was friendly, Captain (Tom) was great and it was a beautiful day. They made sure we saw some of everything. After we followed a pair of Gray Whales down the coast they made sure to stop by a pod of playful dolphins &a group of sleepy sea lions. Thanks for a great trip!

No whale...no refund

The boat ride was nice and not over-crowded; the crew were friendly. Unfortunately, we did not see any whales on our trip. They offered a "whale check" ticket to everyone to return in the future for a free trip. The ticket has no expiration. However, given that we were out-of-towners, that did not help us much. We'd have to be back in LA to benefit from this. They refused to give us a refund either. One of their staff suggested we "give the tickets to some stranger".... how weird. Nice boat ride though... for $30 a pop.

Captain Jack did a great job. He's a funny guy. He also was the 1st boat to locate a whale Saturday morning. We'll definitely come again. The Millers

Great trip, 2 very cooperative gray whales.

We spotted a gray whale on the surface just as we were leaving the harbor, then locked on two two grays who were on the surface off the bow for more than an hour. Great views of flukes. When the dolphins came to play, one of the whales surfaced and rolled over. Really a great show.

Whale of a day

We were out there a hour and a half before we finaly saw a couple of whales. Well worth the wait. Its hit or miss when you go out there, we got luck at the end :-)
