Plenty of dolphins!
Thu, May 8  2:00 PM rdurofchalk Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Plenty of dolphins.... but no whales! However, we were offered a ticket for another try, but unfortunately, couldn't make that date. We thought that was very fair!

What a beautiful afternoon, staff was excellent and we saw two mom whales with two babies very close to shore! What a treat, we also saw maybe a thousand dolphins? It was simply amazing, looked like a fake movie set.

Good Senior Citizen outing
Tue, Apr 29  2:30 PM mikeyspapa Male 70+ Local Family Without Children
Nice tour and friendly crew. PA system didn't work well so we couldn't hear much narrative. No whales this trip but Captain did find nice pod of dolphins and extended trip to view. I think average tourist would enjoy more narrative including coastline points of interest when things are slow.

Lame lame lame

The crew did nothing for us at all! There were no benches on the boat, you had to bait your own line, you had to make your own rig. No one caught anything!

Great fishing on the Clemente
Fri, Apr 25  10:00 AM smarin Male 30-39 Local Individual
Great fishing on the Clemente! The day started out gloomy but the clouds cleared and fishing was on. Lots of action, a few keepers but fun times! Any day fishing is better than sitting at work! :)

Hit home run with bases loaded!
Thu, Apr 24  2:30 PM JohnRomano Male 60-69 Local Individual
We followed a mother and her calf for 45 minutes. They were joined by 10-15 dolphins which surrounded the whales. Then the calf breached the water. What a sight and memorable moment. The captain said that it might happen. Captain made the trip with his knowledge of the whales and his work for find us mother and calf to watch. He made the trip. Next time we have visitors we plan on taking them to see the Whales! Great Trip!

Wonderful Whale Watching Experience
Tue, Apr 22  4:30 PM Baileya28 Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
What a wonderful experience! We started by heading out of harbor to locate a huge pod of dolphins. While "playing" with the dolphins the captain provided commentary pointing out what we were seeing and providing facts about the mammals. We then moved to shallower water to find the Whales. After cruising for a bit they spotted two grey whales (a mother and her calf). We followed the whales for a while and once again received information on the whales and their migration patterns. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. The trip was an appropriate length and we saw plenty of marine life.

Wonderful experience with passionate crew
Tue, Apr 22  12:00 PM thefoxes Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
You could tell that the captain was a little concerned whether or not we'd find some whales at the beginning of our trip. It was getting towards the end whale migration. The crew was glued to their binoculars. When we stumbled upon a mother and her calf the crew was thrilled and high fiving each other. The whales put on quite a show for us. The mother breached twice, including once simultaneously with her calf. While other boats in the area pulled in for a few minutes, our captain stayed with the whales for a long time, keeping a respectful distance. He was clearly passionate about these animals, providing lots of information about them with no script. It was a highly memorable trip.

Half day fishing with kids
Mon, Apr 21  10:00 AM rjjump Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
Expect some frustration if you have younger kids. The half day trips pretty much sit at local kelp beds and the boat is positioned where the stern swings near the kelp. 90% of the fish will be caught from the back. The areas are over fished so the fish are small and hide in the kelp. Frequent fisherman will stake the best spots. The captain will announce a time for people to rotate but that will be half way through the trip. Most people will mill around a bit but grab spots close to where they were. So unless you are aggressive and force your way in you will not likely get a prime spot. I would do that but with my younger kids you cant as they are not good enough fisherman to handle the tight combat fishing that happens in the back. If you want to see the local coastline from a boat, have a snack and enjoy a day at sea then it is fine. If you go thinking of catching decent size fish then do something else. I have went 5 times with my small kids and always the same story 100+ fish caught but only a few legal size....and I am talking barely legal. I have not seen anything over 18" or a couple pounds ever caught.

Friendly crew, not enough time to catch fish
Sun, Apr 20  12:45 PM Bowhunterb Male 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
Staff was very friendly and helpful. I'd reccomend doing a full day or 3/4 day if you want to catch much; not one keep able fish was caught by our boat and we were only a mile or two out of the harbor. We returned almost a full hour short of the 5 hours advertised

Lots of dolphins!
Tue, Apr 15  10:00 AM GalvanFamily Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was a fun way to spend our morning. Although no whales were seen on our adventure, we did get to see a large grouping of dolphins up close. And of course sea lions. A little disappointed about no whales but we understand that sometimes that happens. Still it was very fun and do recommend this trip.
