The trip was awesome
Fri, Mar 18, 11   2:00 PM tamide Female 30-39 Local Group of Friends
We had a great experience. The crew was friendly and explained to everyone when they spotted something and interacted well with the passengers. Most important to me was their schedule. We left exactly at our departure time and returned on time. I hate when you have to wait around for people to show up. I would do again and again and again.

We enjoyed our trip tremendously, treated from start to finish as if we were part of there family. Given a complete narrative of our surroundings and marine life.They were as enthusiastic as we were upon whale sightings. I would recommend this trip highly.

The day we went we did not see any whales and saw 5 dolphins from a distance. Because of this we were given free passes to do another tour any time in the future. The captain was well informed and able to describe the dophins etc. We would do this tour again.

Nice short ride

For those who do not want to be out for an extended time, two hours is just right. I usually go with the longer rides, but thought this was a good price. I think returning our ticket (no whale policy) is a very nice thing to do.

It was a delightful experience for all six of us..

Tue, Mar 15, 11   2:00 PM MLBurgoyne Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Six of us, three generations -- ranging in age from 79 to 22 took the tour, and everyone of us enjoyed it very much. This is the third time we have taken this tour, and each one seems to be more fun than the last. The weather was perfect, the tour guides very knowledgeable and helpful, and we saw lots of activity in the water. I didn't see a whale myself, but we saw several the last two years we were here. More fun than the whales are the hundreds of dolphin that we saw this time. They chase the wake, and surround the boat. We also saw hundreds of pelican feeding and diving for fish. It was just a very enjoyable, fun and delightful experience for all six of us.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We are looking forward to doing this again in July/August to see Blue Whales & we'll be choosing the same outfitters! The captain and deck hands were all great, knowledgeable and friendly. Their experience enabled us to not only see grey whales but to follow their path as they migrated down the coast. This is truly an experience our family will never forget- fun for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors! Children 3 to 93 will all be impressed and captivated not just by the ocean animals but also by the captains banter and knowledge of all things "ocean"! We enjoyed this excursion so much that we went twice the week we were visiting!

Amazing day on the water!
Mon, Mar 14, 11   12:00 PM kimmyrand Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Had some friends in from Iowa looking to escape the cold winter weather. Thought whale watching would be a great day trip. I honestly worried it wouldn't be worth the money, but I was happy to be proved wrong. We had a great time. Just being out on the water in calm seas and sunshine would have been worth the price of admission, but we got so much more. We saw hundreds of dolphins and then were lucky enough to find three grey whales traveling together. At one point they surfaced just 10 feet of the bow of the boat...Amazing!
