Crew was wonderful and the vessel wasn't crowded. We stayed with a huge pod of dolphins for about an hour...it was fabulous.

Overall Experience...
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Nov 6, 10   3:30 PM ChristaR Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
Overall I enjoyed my cruise experience. I LOVED seeing all the dolphins but was a little disappointed I didn't see any whales (I guess that was due to the transition between seasons). And although I liked all the facts and info about the water and sealife, I didn't enjoy how loud the captain was over the loud speaker. It was so loud, it was ear piercing and eventually gave me a headache. I prob would have said something, but I was feeling too sick to walk around.

Lots of dolphins...warm weather...informative. I'm a fisherman and have witnessed dolphin in the wild many times. But in this situation, spending time in the middle of the pod and watching them close up was fantastic and very relaxing.

Needed something to break up the typical mid-week day-dates I've allowed us to fall into. When I saw the 1/2 price whale watching (pronounced: dolphin watching) tour, I knew it was worth a shot. Low and behold, we lucked out and had one of the best days of the year for an ocean boat trip. No whales, but great people on board, and a very friendly crew that truely seems to enjoy thier work! thanks a million!

Worst Captain Ever
Thu, Oct 28, 10   10:00 AM Dcboss Male 50-59 Local Other
The Captain didn't have a clue where he was going. He didn't bother to ask where the boat had been doing great all week. When he did stop, he gave little information about the location. As soon as the anchor hit bottom, he would be at the rail fishing. That was bad enough, but he would squeeze into a good spot and fly line across others. He also would be smoking while fishing. I had to move on two occasions because of the smoke. My daughter was hung up on a rock with the captain right next to her, but he was two busy fishing to help. When she asked for help, he called a deck hand over to assist her. He acted as if this was his private boat and we were just in his way. Stay away from captain Jack.

It was a perfect day and the crew was enthusiastic. Only suggestion is to have real hot chocolate instead of the packets. Other than that, I thought it was a beautiful and fun trip. My neices enjoyed it very much.

Great crew

We had a good time - fish were kinda scarce and there were a lot of throw backs. We stayed pretty close to shore. The boat and the crew were nice. The food was great. Will definately do it again.

The trip was fantastic! We actually didn't see any whales, but saw a huge pod of probably 500 dolphin which was just as good if not better. The dolphin stayed with the boat for ages. We saw them up close and even got splashed as they leapt into the air, showing off for us. There were alot of moms with babies at their sides which was amazing. At one point the dolphin came across a huge school of sardine and began feeding. Suddenly the air and the water were filled with huge majestic Pelicans and squawking seagulls trying to get in on the action. It made me wish I could go out there every single day. The crew were polite although not too attentive. We were surprised to find out after we departed that the blue whale season was long over, which is not what the web site said. It would have been nice to know that. The captain shared some interesting facts about the animals but I wished he had shared more. The crew seemed busy watching a baseball game on t.v. instead. But all in all it was a wonderful day and for the price you can't beat it. For me it beats a cheeseburger and a movie anyday! I will go again... soon!
