Excellent Catamaran Adventure Cruises trip

Our 3-generation group (Father, Mother, 2 Daughters and 1 granddaughter) had a terrific time on our whale watching trip on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2009. The weather was perfect, with warm, sunny sky, very light breeze and light, glassy seas. The boat was nice and roomy, and certainly didn't feel crowded with around 29 pasengers and crew of 4. All of the crew were very friendly and helpful. The marine biologist on board, Morgan Ritchie, and her assistant were very knowledgeable and added a lot to the trip. We even bought one of Morgan's excellent photos on the way in. We saw three different blue whales, which are awesome creatures. We also saw a mola mola (ocean sunfish) near the boat and a large marlin that jumped clear out of the water several times, though it was too far away to photograph. And, of course, we saw common dolphins - hundreds of them! Many of the dolphins were accompanied by their young ones, as they swam right next to the boat and jumped around in large areas near the boat. Almost everywhere we looked, there were dolphins. My old digital camera was way too slow on the shutter speed to get the really good shots of the whales venting upon surfacing or having their tails high in the air as they started deep dives, but my daughter got some really great photos. All-in-all, it was a wonderful trip, and I highly recommend it. We'll be back for grey whale season.

The crew was fabulous. We saw hundreds if not a couple thousand dolphins and 5 whales. Exciting and cannot wait to take our children. This is a trip for anyone and any kind of event.

My family and I were visiting from Texas. This was an awesome trip, we actually saw some gray whales. We saw lots of common porpoise and some sea lions. We also got a beautiful view of the coast. The water was so blue. I would recommend this to anyone who might be interested. The crew was very knowledgable as to the location of the wildlife and gave us a great cruise and a wonderful family memory. Thanks!

Took my 5yr old grandson out on the Sum Fun for some FUN! That is exactly what we got!! so much fun! Great boat to introduce the kids to sportfishing! The kid was a natural and brought up the first fish on the boat, and could not stop smiling the rest of the day as we caught fish for the next few hours. Great personable captain and the crew was awsome!

A glorious day, did not matter that we saw whales. A nice surprise that we were given a rain check because no whales were spotted. Just the boat ride, view of the coast, the fresh air, and hints of Catalina made it all worth while.

The Grandkids did not want to go but ended up loveing it. The operators searched and searched for a Blue Whale but could not find one. However the did not give up until we found a pod of dolphins.

The boat company was organized and did a great job. During the trip the boat guide provided lots of information about the marine life. We saw hundreds of dolphins and some seals. It was a good experience.

Lots of dolphins, no whales.
Fri, Mar 9, 12   12:00 PM ThomasBohan Male 70+ Local Family Without Children
Saw several hundred dolphins which was fascinating. Did not see any whales, so the crew issued "whale checks" (good for future trip) which is great for us locals. Captain was informative. Long boarding line formed early with no place to sit, and the boat was quite full, thus many of us had to stand throughout the whole experience which was not good for this senior with back problems. Women's restroom was foul smelling and the toilet was clogged; unacceptable!

It is amazing that the migration of the grey whale is taking place in front of our very eyes. The whale watching cruise is a wonderful opportunity to observe the migration of this magnificent animal.

Wonderful trip. Didn't see any whales the first day so we got free 'reschedule' tickets and we went out the next day. Saw hundreds of dolphins and had a wonderful boat ride. Excellent value for the money and very friendly and professional staff. Highly recommend a trip.

We had a good time on the trip, seen one Whale. The guides did a good job of following the whale and telling us information about the Whales. Would recomend the trip.

The captain was very knowledgable about the ocean and marine life. He showed us a few dolphins and then found us a mega pod of dolphins. He gave us info about dolphins and other marine life. He also showed us a group of CA sea lions and told us about them. We had a nice, relaxing time out on the ocean. The crew was also very nice.
