We didn't see anything! No whales! No dolphins! The captain tried really hard and right when time was about up..we saw the spout in the distance..that's as close as we got! We received a Whale Check to go back for free! Hopefully we have better luck next time!

Too long

the boat was too slow and upon arrival we had only but 15 minutes to wait for the whales to surface. another boat, same category, passed us on the way out and loitered around the whales much longer than we did. frankly not worth the price.

This was such a fun experience~ don't pass it up! Riding out on the ocean was great but then actually seeing the whale and dolphins was the best.

Just long enough to enjoy sun and sea, the trip was affordable, the crew upbeat and successful in taking us alongside several whales which just broke the water several times.

3 kinds of dolphins and a fin whale!
Wed, Feb 17, 10   10:00 AM amyeholmes Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Highly recommended. I went with my kids (ages 7 and almost 5). Crew was knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot about the animals we saw (3 kinds of dolphin and some fin whales-- we got lucky!). We all enjoyed watching the dolphins play in the wake off the bow of the boat. Breakfast (scrambled eggs, bacon, and potatoes) was great. Overall, a lovely trip that we are still talking about.

Amazing whale watching experience
Sun, Feb 14, 10   4:00 PM ohwchris Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We got extremely lucky on the Valentines day sunset cruise and stumbled upon a pod of fin whales. They are ordinarily shy and aloof, but we saw them surface and even lunge feed several times from close proximity. Pretty amazing. Even without the great sightings, the boat was smooth, the crew was nice, the other passengers were gracious and fun. Go.

Great Crew, they worked hard on an off night

We tried a new area in deeper water and the squid just weren't to be found that night. We were out a couple of hours longer than planned, but that just proves how hard these guys were willing to work to try to find some kind of action. I get in the area once in awhile for work and I'll be giving these guys another go. Polite and courteous crew. Just wasn't our night.

Whale watching
Wed, Feb 10, 10   12:00 PM cmorton Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We had a nice outing with a very a good company seeing sea lions and dolphins. Unfortunately, no whales. However, the company made it clear that we may or may not see whales before we purchased tickets. Even in the absence of whales it was a good trip.

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.

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.

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Jan 12, 10   10:00 AM RonZech Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We saw a gray whale as predicted. The highlight, however, was where we found the school of sardines being fed on by about 4 kinds of sea birds, sea lions, and dolphins, all in a broiling frenzy with sardine scales floating on the water. Lots of great close-up pictures! Beautiful day with fairly calm seas.

Cool thing to do in OC

My boyfriend had been wanting to go and I was flipping through our Entertainment book and found a coupon so I called and booked the tickets, when somthing came up and I had to change the time slot of our tour, they were very nice about it and didn't charge any change fees. It was a beautiful day and we both had a great time seeing dolphins but only one shy Grey whale, I would probably shy too if I were him...

Don't miss this opportunity to have a blast!

We went on this adventure on January 9, 2010, to celebrate my sister's birthday, and it was an absolutely wonderful experience. I suffer from motion sickness on almost all moving vehicles, but decided to go anyway because I wanted to spend the time with my family. I'm so glad I did, because I didn't even have a twinge of motion sickness. Although we didn't see any whales, we saw hundreds of dolphins and lots of sea lions, pelicans and seagulls. The crew was amazing and saw to our every need, including recommending a fabulous local restaurant for fresh seafood. Even if we hadn't seen any dolphins, it would have been worth the money just to be out on the ocean on a luxury yacht for a few hours. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
