Our captain and crew worked hard to get us in position to see 2 gray whales. One whale did a 3/4 jump up out of the water. Also saw many common dolphin and sea lions. Captain was very informative about the whales and dolphin we saw. Great trip, Thank You Mike from York, PA

Three fin whales lunge feeding with a golden sunset in the background. It doesn't get any better than that!

No whales on the first trip so we went out a second time on the company. Very informative and fun commentary.

Relaxing Day At Sea

This was a nice trip with clean, safe and professional accomodations. However, we did not see any whales so was really disappointed. Whenever these trips promise to see whales there is an even bigger disappointment if none. We saw dolphins and many birds so all was not lost! The Captain was friendly and informative, I would have liked him to speak more on the wildlife as he seemed to know alot and was quite interesting.

the guys on the boat were great. the guys in the shop were horrible service (i almost wanted a refund and didnt want to go after bieng blown off for asking questions). dont hire teenagers to run the shop get people who care. i probably wont use this company again. although the guy with long hair working the snack shack on the boat was really nice and worked really hard. captain was informative.

True Test of a Good Company
Sun, Jan 31, 10   12:00 PM mccrery Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The day was beautiful and we saw a few dolphins but no whales. Liked the boat (much quieter than expected). The test of a good company is not when everything goes as hoped and/or planned. We chose this company because of their policy that if no whales are seen, you get a "whale check" (free trip in the future during whales season). There is no expiration date. You just have to have the ticket. The policy was honored. We may or may not be able to go again since we're from out of town but we're impressed with the handling of it. We did not have to ask. It was told over the loud speakers before we docked. Pleasant crew just an uneventful trip. Only suggestion is that there be disclosure that the "online purchase discount of $2 per person" is offset by the service charge of $2 per person (resulting in no discount at all). This is interpreted as a "smoke and mirrors" trick out of character for the company and not appreciated.
