great day!
Sun, Feb 7, 10   12:00 PM aliciatotaro Female 40-49 Local Group of Friends
The crew was friendly and helpful, providing information and telling us where to look. The boat was clean and comfortable. We did not see any whales or dolphins because of the recent storms but we were given passes to come back whenever we want to. I have been on this boat many times and will hoefully have many more opportunities. GREAT DAY!!!

Good event to bring your teenagers
Thu, Feb 4, 10   5:30 PM christisew Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
As a Mom I didn't know what to expect. I brought 3 teens with me. The deck hands got me situated and the boys did well. We all caught loads of Humboldt squid even though it was one of their slower nights. They then cut them up into filets for us to take home. The boys want to go again!

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.

Whales not guaranteed
Sat, Jan 30, 10   2:00 PM vmotis Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
Being on the waer was fun and we saw lots of dolphins of varying types which ws cool. The crew was knowledgeable and helpful but the disappointment was not seeing any actual whales. Would have liked to know ahead of time the likelihood of seeing one, e.g. did any other boats th day see one. The consolation prize was a going past a buoy where sea lions hang out. Being up close tothem was interesting but not what we came on the trip to see. We'll probably try again but will ask questions and do some research ahead of time to see if any whales are being sighted.

No Whales but Awesome Day
Fri, Jan 29, 10   12:00 PM scoreboard Male 40-49 Local Couple on a Date
We went on the noon departure on 1/29/10. It was like glass and we could see for miles. If there was a whale within 20 miles, we would have seen it. We did see seals, dolphins, sea lions, and some guy reel in a nice size halibit (not from our boat). The captain was kind enough to give us out tickets back. The boat was clean, the day was bright, and the scenery breathtaking. Looking forward to using the returned ticket.

Loved the trip
Sun, Jan 17, 10   10:00 AM crwinterton Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Whale watching was great. Saw some sea lions and was able to follow 2 whales for quite a while. The captain positioned the boat so that we did not have to take pictures into the sun. The crew was very friendly. Would definately go again when in the area. Would have loved to watch the whales even longer than we did.

Wonderful experience for individuals and families!

Very comfortable and relaxing boat! Incredibly courteous and knowledgeable staff! We can't wait to go again and this time bring our children! The trip would have been great without a sighting but to see the interaction of the whale with the dolphins was a gift from nature!!!

Exciting and Well Worth the Money
Sat, Jan 2, 10   12:00 PM sharob Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
Our family day out included my husband and I and our two boys ages 5 and 9 there was also my brother and sister-inlaw and their three kids ages 4,6 and 8. My husband's mum and dad were with us to who were visiting from Scotland, UK. My husband and I have always wanted to do Whale watching as it is my husband's favourite mammal. Although when we went out we never saw any whales but we saw pods and pods of dolphins who swam right by our boat, we quickly got the video camera out and took lots of photo's and video's. It was a beautiful sunny day, the sea water was calm it was a perfect afternoon with the family the kids were in their element and had a great time. Sharon Walton

Tue, Dec 29, 09   2:00 PM RajeshMirani Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We could not see any whales. The boat driver was just circling around in a small area where dolphins were swimming. Towards the end he headed home and apologized for not able to spot any whales. He could have gone deeper into the ocean rather than circling in the same area and giving speeches about the lives of dolphins.

While there were whales seen on the previous excursion, the team did not continue to track the whales, so we did not see them. This is unfortunate that there was a whale in the area that we could not see
