More smoke than bites.

I generally do not get seasick, but a constant gail of cigarette and cigar smoke took care of that. With a crowd of people in pretty tight quarters, there should be no smoking allowed. I think it will be a long time before I go out again.

Great Crew, Bad Weather Day, Lots of Fish and Fun

If you are grandparents along for ride with the grandkids be aware there is no comfortable seat on the boat "Reel Fun" and you are sitting in the sun for 4 hours and hopefully not bad sea conditions. Make sure you bring along your dramamine just in case. Kids had a ball when a large wave came over the front of the boat and they got soaked. For me it was too long, too nauseaus, too hot, and stinky between the poor sardines as bait , squid, frying hamburgers, and no where comfortable to sit. Not good for bad back. Everyone was catching fish and they enjoyed that. Sea was not calm due to storm in the morning and rain.

We went out as a family our last full day in California to try and see the whales. It was my wife and my 8 year old daughter. We had been out there for 11 days and seeing the majestic blue whales was the highlight of our entire vacation. I cannot recommend highly enough taking the time and spending the money to see those animals. The boat itself was very stable, and the Captain and the crewman both were very helpful and knowledgable. We got the pleasure of seeing 3 blue whales, and a group of dolphins. It was a fantastic experience.

Incredible experience to see blue whales! Weather wasn't perfect but who cares. Great idea for out of state visitors - beats the heck out of a drive to Los Angeles.

Needs adult supervision!!!

Too many "serious" fishermen running around the boat overhead casting - recipe for disaster with no one in charge to stop them. Too many young children running around the boat unsupervised - again, no one in charge to stop them. Finally, I don't care if we are outdoors. Boat should be non-smoking. That includes the crew.

Lots of fun but overbooked

We had a great time but probably won't go again on the 25 dollar evening. Shoulder to shoulder people. Too crowded. I suggest you have 25% percent less people. Or have limits. We did catch fish though.

Phenomenal activity - A MUST DO!!!
Tue, Jul 26, 11   5:00 PM jbuckhan Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The excursion was fabulous, the boat captain/personnel were very knowledgable and friendly. Seeing the whales and their calves were amazing. Also as an extra treat, we came upon a Great White Shark (about 12 feet long) that surfaces and we were able to put it right up to the boat for all to see. The kids stated that this trip was a highlight of our vacation.

What a beautiful afternoon. Our captain was very descriptive about what we were going to see and a few moments later there they are 2 amazing blue whales! Everyone in my group had huge smiles on their faces as we kept track of the minutes waiting for the whales to resurface. Great pleasure to watch these amazing animals. We had lots of room to move about the boat and stand at the rail to get the closest look at the whales. We also kept track with a pod of swift moving dolphins and then we ended our trip by looking at the sea lions in the area. Such a memorable experience and a fun way to see a little more detail about California. My 10 and 12 year old and their 70 yr old Nana loved their adventure and we all agreed to do this tour again. Thank you.

Grandchildren (boy 10 & girl 12), son, husband (disabled - used a walker) and myself had a FANTASTIC time. Grandchildren and son visiting from Texas -- the catamaran ride, seeing the whales and the dolphins were great. Would recommend this adventure to all age groups and the handicapped.
