don't forget the dramamine!
Fri, Mar 21, 08   12:00 PM myan23 Female 30-39 Local Family Without Children
we followed 2 whales, which was really cool. and we saw a bunch of dolphins. i didn't like how the boat was right on top of the dolphins, literally. they claim it doesn't hurt them, but it didn't seem right to do it. other than that, the crew was professional. my only problem was i didn't take dramamine early enough and got seriously sea sick! anyone prone to motion sickness, be sure to take something well before hand. my husband had a great time while i was nauseous for 2 hours!!

We had fun

I decided to take a day off from work to try out the half-off deal on Tuesdays. This was our first fishing trip ever and we had fun though it would have been much more fun if we caught some fish. Crew members were friendly and helpful showing us how to use the fishing rods and hooking up the baits (about 4-inch long fish). I would definitely recommend first-timers to try it out.

We didn't see a blue whale, but did see a blow from a distance. Witnessed many bottlenose and short-beaked common dolphins with the help of an awesome cetacean naturalist, David Beeninga Great time!!

Grey whale season in a lull
Sat, Feb 23, 08   10:00 AM MWright Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
Captain did report that the grey whales were less frequent in that week in February, but only when we finally saw whales after looking for 1 and a half hours. In fact, they were closer in to shore and sailboats surrounded them, preventing us from getting closer. Their return to the north apparently starts in a weeks' time, so I just mistimed my visit.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Overall a fun trip - we saw dolphins, sharks, and two whales which was more than we expected - so overall a success. The only criticisms of the trip would be the recommendation to get there at LEAST a half hour early as the trip leaves on time - because we stood on the dock for 45 minutes before boarding the boat, only to then depart 20 minutes late (which was expressly stated on the tickets that the trips depart ON TIME) and then stood on the ship for another 2 1/2 hours beyond that. If you are going to insist that participants arrive so early that they must stand and wait to board, you need to leave on time. The boats would be improved if there was also some limited amount of seating available. The crew was great, however, and the naturalist who spoke about the wildlife was knowledgeable and informative. Despite our frustration with the beginning portion of the adventure, I would definitely still recommend for the price. We also arrived back to port an hour later than the booking information stated, which was not a problem for us, but could have been if we had plans beyond the trip. Something to consider.

In 4 words: avoid like the plague

This was basically a boat ride close to the coast. Not even a remote sight of a whale took place. End of January is supposed to be a good time for watching whales but no cigar. I saw a lot of dolphins though but the ride is for watching whales, not dolphins. The company tried to make up for the lack of whales by offering a a 50% coupon on the next ride. LOL. Do they really think people are that stupid?

Perfect Family Outting

Hello Everyone, Thanks so much for a wonderful afternoon. I took my whole family whale watching and everyone had a blast. Although there were no whales we found the crew both friendly and knowledgeable. There was enough sea-life to make it memorable and a couple hours at sea was great. I have and will recommend this to anyone. We had such a great time we will probably be back in March for another chance to hopefully see whales. Thanks again!

Had company in town and was lucky enough to see a blue whale, many dolphins and sea lions. Went in hunt of killer whales that had been sighted but no luck. Even though, trip was great to be out on the water. Boat was clean, comfortable and not crowded. Staff was helpful and informative.

We unfortunately didn't see any whales or dolphins on our trip. The group before us got to see a humpback whale. We used our "whale check" a couple days later, but struck out again. I'll hold on to that "whale check" in case I'm ever in the area again. Captain and crew were friendly and informative.
