Great experience for a great price

Loved the experience. We took our 10 year old and he was very excited. We saw a few dolphins and about 6 whales. You mostly get to see their backs arch over the water as they dive. If your lucky you saw a tail. Still very cool to be that close to these massive creatures. The crew was very friendly and the boat was clean and beautiful. People started lining up to board 30-45 min before, so if you care about picking your spot, be early. No need to bring binoculars (in my opinion), you're close enough without them, and even looking through the camera zoom lens made it harder to pick them up. Well worth it!

Friendly staff. We didn't see whales but they offered a whale check for another time.

Fun day at sea even without whales

We had a beautiful warm and sunny day to sail. Even though we did not see any whales we did see dolphins and sea lions. Staff was pleasant & knowledgable. Comfortable boat. One woman had a 3 year old and I wouldn't recommend for that young age group - she spent the time running around the boat after him! He didn't have the patience to keep looking out for the whales!

What a great time we had. I have not seen my fiance so happy in quite a while. It was better than I expected and so informative too. The dolphins were wonderful enough and the grey whale was the icing on the cake. We also saw sea lions. We ate first at historic "Turks" which is right there. No sea sickness just pure joy. Thank you!!!!!!!

The Best!

This was my 3rd excursion with these guys and we saw a whale!! Even if we hadn't, it would have been a great day just to be out on the water. The captain stayed with the whale for about an hour of the excursion so there was plenty of opportunity for all to take photos or videos. We've had the same captain every time and he's great! The crew is nice and the boat is clean. We won't go out with any other excursion company. These guys are the best.

Great way to spend a couple hours!

We have been out with these guys before. We did the 2 hour whale watch. The captain was knowledgable and personable. The boat was clean. We didn't see any whales but we saw a ton of dolphins and some sea lions. It's a bummer not to see a whale but it's still a really beautiful way to spend a couple hours out at sea. We will keep taking our out of town visitors out and maybe one day we will see a whale!

Good for out of town guests and locals!

The boat (Dana Pride) was clean and big. There were plenty of seats in the galley. There are seats on the upper deck but it's limited and you need to get in line early to snag one of those. We preferred to stand in the front of the boat anyway so it didn't matter to us. We didn't see any whales the day we went but we saw a large pod of dolphins and several sea lions. The captain rode along with the dolphins for a long time which was nice, everyone had plenty of time to shoot video and take pictures. We have more family coming next month and we are going to do it again. Even if we hadn't seen a thing, it was a nice way to spend a couple hours out on the water. It was a beautiful warm day but still chilly on the boat. We definitely needed a couple layers (as their website suggests). Grab a drink at Turk's afterward. It's a great day out!

Fun adventure

Everything about the staff and boat was great! A fun trip, and there is a little thrill not knowing what you will see. They do announce immediately that if no whales or dolphins are seen, that they give a voucher for another free trip. Fun two hours and would recommend.

good trip if whales are spotted
Fri, Feb 29, 08   4:00 PM moonhat Female 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
this trip is a great outing if anything is spotted. it not it's slightly boring but they give you your ticket back if that is the case, allowing you to go again whenever you want for free so really, no matter what you always have a chance to see marine life. seeing the dolphins and whales is very thrilling. hopefully you see them on your outing...

This was a fantastic trip. The boat was beautiful and comfortable and the crew was very professional and knowledgable. We saw 6 whales with the first one spotted within 5 minutes of leaving the dock. A great time was had by all!
