whale watching boat tour - marginal at best
Sun, Mar 2, 08   1:00 PM jafitzgerald Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
it was my understanding that this is the time of whale observing. with modern means of sharing information, i feel the company was pretty sure we wouldn't see any whales, but they were happy to take our money and give us a two hour boat trip. i was most disappointed and would not recommend the boat ride. we saw more sea life activity from the balcony of our hotel than we did from the boat.

Although we enjoyed the day we were disappointed that we did not see any whales. I tried to talk to one of the staff and ask questions but he was very short with me. I am not sure if I would go again. We did enjoy the dolphins.

I had wonderful time. First time whale watching and we were able to see 3 blue whales. I was told by the crew that it was rare to see more than 1. the crew was great, fun and enthusiastic. Will take the kids again in the future!

Crew was friendly and courteous, however I would have liked to see them do some chumming. While we were fishing, the crew sat around fishing with us when not doing other work. No complaints, otherwise.

Perfect night out for the Guys
Sat, Oct 24, 09   5:30 PM jacobdv Male 40-49 Local Group of Friends
We were 12 guys that booked the twilight fishing trip on October 24, 2009. The fish did not bite the way we wanted to, but the season was almost over. Some guys did catch quite a few. The jackpot went to the guy who caught a 2.5 pounder. The evening was really great. Great friends. Great weather. Great crew on Reel Fun. Brian did a fantastic job to untangle al the bird nests. Dan cooked great burgers and kept the beers cold. The captain stopped at three different places where he could see fish on the fish finder. Before we knew it, the 4 hours were over and we were back at the harbor. We would probably do a longer trip next time. But then again, it is always good to stop eating when you still want a little bit more. The 1/2 day is good for people that do not do too good on the ocean. We loved it. Will definately do it again. Will be great for older kids too - maybe when they are about 10.

Nice trip

It was very overcast with two seals following us at every stopr we made. The weather and the seals made for poor fishing, but just getting out with your friends and having a good time is a great way to go. The crew and captain were great. Had a great time.

Lots of dolphins, no whales (past season?)
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

The experience on the boat was great, and we saw a huge (super pod?) of dolphins, which was wonderful. We did not know that we were actually really past the blue whale season, or we might not have booked the cruise. Not a big deal, but probably would have factored into our choice of this as a family activity. Overall, we had a good time.

It was a perfect day in early January. Didn't see any whales even though the crew sure tried to find some. Saw seals and tons of dolphins though. Will do it again.

took a 2 hour whale watch in mid afternoon. was not too crowded, great day! saw a gray whale with pup, a second gray whale, a number of sea lions out in the ocean and some fin whales! One of the fin whales liked us and played around the boat for some time giving us all a thrill! only suggestion i would make is for them to improve their audio, most of the time we could not hear what they were saying,,,, but that didn't impact what we saw!!

Amazing Experience
Sat, Feb 20, 10   5:30 PM jack1783 Male 20-29 Local Group of Friends
There were three of us in our group, two of us came back with giant squids, and the third person lost one. It was an amazing experience. I have been fishing for most of my 26 years, and catching a giant squid was something I have never done before. The crew was outstanding; they were very helpful, and the price was right. I would love to go again.

We particullarly appreciated all the information about the whales that was given during our excursion. It was very informative and fascinating. We did see at least 4 blue whales that day. The marine specialists who were also on board could have mingled and been available for questions. J and E

Worth the trip

I and the grandkids had a good time despite no fish being caught. Water was unseasonably cold and they weren't biting. A little more attentiveness from the crew would have been nice. It's hard to rig and bait three kid's poles when you, yourself aren't quite sure how to rig one up.

Blue whales are cool!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

We saw lots of dolphins for the first hour, which was okay, but we were there to look for whales. After 1 hour had passed, the captain went in whale searching mode and found a big blue what that was quite far away. He pulled up to where he thought it might surface, and it came up really close to the boat. We followed the whale for 30 minutes and got lots of good views of blows and his tale. I have seen other whales before, but the blue whale is something special.
