Drunk people on boat using foul language
Sat, Jun 2, 12   5:30 PM funkydoc Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
I has hesitant when I learned the AM trips were no longer available and I had no choice but to buy 10 tickets for my two sons and their families (including 5 grandkids, 5 years through 12 years old) for this fishing trip which was a family gathering. We went on this trip June 2, 2012 5:30 through 9 pm. Three guys from the armed forces (Pendelton) came to the boat already pretty drunk. The staff continued to sell them alcoholic beverages. Their language was very offensive. At one time they called my son (who was battling a large fish, and is also a career Navy officer) "a son of a b****". That should not be allowed, and it really spoiled our trip. I will not return with my family in those circumstances, which is a shame, because I have really enjoyed other trips.

No whales

We didn't see any whales, but saw a bunch of dolphins. I was disappointed about the whales, however the crews' knowledge of the dolphins was very extensive. I felt that we should have gotten a future discount ticket or something since we didn't see whales.

I had family visiting so it was a spur of the moment decision to go. Everyone had a great time - so relaxing - We enjoyed the dolphins - this is a great memory maker!

loads of dolphin, no whales :-(

The boat ride was fun with loads of expectation of seeing a whale. We saw a very large pod of dolphin which we stayed with for a very long time. Long enough for it to get a little boring. After that, the captain announced that we would go and look for a whale. For the rest of the trip we saw the ocean and the coast. Although we weren't guaranteed to see a whale, it was disappointing. We do understand that there couldn't be a guarantee of seeing a whale because they are wild creatures, after all. The boat ride was very pleasant and the crew members friendly and helpful.

We saw two different types of dolphin schools, as well as the sea lions. Whales are a rarity. It is not my first time, but I always enjoy bringing visiting friends and family. It never ceases to impress, and we always get to see the sea lions and the dolphins..

We had a great time on the whale watch and were impressed that Dana Wharf returned our tickets after we didn't see any whales. However, I repeatedly told the ticket agent the ages of our 4 children and she still charged us the adult rate for each of them. When we got to Dana Wharf, the children's ticket prices were clearly posted. It was irritating to know that we could have saved about $20, but we had a great day!

While I understand and accept the fact that this is a nature trip and the company does not have control over what kind and how many different animals may be seen on the tour, we were mislead to believe there would be a good chance of seeing marine life, specifically, whales. However, we later learned that our trip was scheduled during an "off-season" for seeing whales. Just be honest. We still would've gone on the trip, but now I feel duped!

I go Whale watching every year but this year I brought along 2 new additions: a DSLR and my girlfriend. We had a great time with a nice group and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Gorgeous day, started right on time, interacted with common dolphins and saw other types, as well as sea lions (whale migration season was almost over). Extremely satisfied and will always go with them!

We had a wonderful time but it was a beautiful day with clear water and lots of marine life sitings. Probably wouldn't have been as thrilled if we hadn't seen so much stuff. The staff was nIce and very knowledgeable.

Beautiful day on a boat

Sat, May 5, 12   5:00 PM barbhines Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The day was beautiful, perfect for a boat ride. The boat had lots of room outside as well as inside. The captain said it was a perfect day to see whales, dolphins and other marine life. We quickly saw sealoins clinging to a bouy, about 25 minutes later we saw a school of dolphins and the captain knew just how to make them perform for us. Finally about 2 hours into the trip, we saw a mother whale and her calf briefly. The captain provided lots of great information and allowed the boat to idle so everyone had time to take any pictures they wanted. We came back a few minutes later than scheduled but that was because the crew searched tirelessly for the whales. It was a great boat ride with the benefit of seeing some authentic marine life. One thing that really impressed me, was that the captain and crew were very respectful of the marine animals, particularly the mother and child whales and didn't want to stress them out too much.

Well worth the money - the captain was informative and tried his best to capture as much marine life as he could.
