Everything about this experience was wonderful. The crew on the boat were so helpful and informative. Never did we expect to see the dolphins and whales like we did. It definately far-exceeded our expectations and we can't wait until we can do it again.

My daughter and I went out on the 2pm boat. We got really lucky because there were a couple of minke whales that seemed to really like our boat; they circled it, went under and around it, and kept coming back; one of them was only 10-15 feet away. The captain said that minke whales are rare and usually very shy, and that this was a "real treat"; he had never seen one so social before. My daughter was thrilled and it was pretty cool to see. The minke whales are, unfortunately, still hunted by some countries such as Japan, so I hope it stays local!

Plan to stand, because there is not much sitting room if you want to see the whales. I thought it was going to be on the cold side; It wasn't, and I got sunburned on my arms, because I didn't wear sunblock. If you get any kind of motion sickness, take dramamine or bonine. I took 2 bonine tablets before the trip. The first hour I was fine, the second hour I started to get seasick. Don't eat a big or spicy meal before the trip if your prone to motion sickness. I still had a good time even though I got sick(I didn't vomit). We saw some sea lions and minke whales, I thought was awesome!

It was a beautiful day, kids had fun spotted a couple of small whales, wish we would have moved from location we were at to see more. Would recommend this to friends and family.

Having gone on many such excursions, I was disappointed in the fact that the boat went out from the harbor a couple of miles then just sort of circled for about an hour, then went south towards San Clemente for a short distance, then turned back to the harbor. No whales was not the problem, I just did not think that they made a very good effort to find any. Did see a few dolphins.

More Dolphin Watching than Whale Watching

Since Whales are a bit hard to come by, at least that is what we heard, it may be best to play up the dolphins and play down the whales. Perhaps that's what whale watching is, but we simply look for and searched for whales, with no luck. Kids did not care, the dolphins were way cooler anyway. We loved it and will go again, but this time, we will call it "Dolphin Watching"

I knew when i booked our trip that it was the end of Grey Whale season, so i wasn't completely crushed that we didn't see any. We saw some White Sided Dolphins and that was very exciting, and they followed our boat for a while. The employees that walked around the boat were very nice and talked about the dolphins and whales. They seem to really love what they do and enjoy teaching the public about Marine animals. I also liked the length of the trip, 2 hours was good cause if you don't see a whale you at least get a good boat ride out of it.

This is a great activity for all ages. The location is easy to find and the boat is easy to board even handicap accessible. What a bargain for 2 hours of fresh air and excitment. This was my 2nd time going and I will do it again.

Didn't see any whales but saw plenty of dolphins, sea lions and pelicans. My older son did not enjoy so much as he got seasick but the rest of the family enjoyed the trip.

We had a wonderful time. It could not have been a more beutiful spring day and even though we didn't see any sea life with the exception of a few sea lions we had a great time and will definitely use the return tickets to go again.

The boat ride in and of itself is fun, of course it gets more exciting when a whale has been spotted. The crew are great about looking for the whales and alerting passengers when they've seen a whale and telling everyone where to look. The sometimes frustrating thing is that if the boat is crowded it may sometimes be hard to get a good look. Although people are usually good about letting everyone get a good look. There really is no bad place to be on the boat, but there are not enough seats for everyone. If you want a place to sit, you should get there early to be at the front of the line. Seating is first come, first served. Overall the experience is a good one. In fact, I had to stand for the whole two hours last time but barely noticed because the boat ride was fun and seeing the whales was very exciting.

I would highly recommend it. We were lucky enough to see three different types of whales, it is almost unheard of...we were extremely lucky, and the staff was very knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend this to anyone who doesn't get sea sick!

Had a good time but whale watching was very slow and only got too see one whale at the very end of the tour. Saw no dolphins at all. Was going to ask for a refund or another day the go whale watching but grand daugther was a little sea sick and forgot too ask. Please send me 3 tickets to try it again. Grand daughter promise we will have better luck. Scott Burns
