Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Mon, Sep 19, 11   5:00 PM tanujkush Male 20-29 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My family was visiting in town, so I decided to go whale watching since I'd never seen whales before. I booked online for three but was told that the boat was full for that day (this was a sunday) and I could re-schedule for the next day. So I did, and man, did I enjoy!! We saw about 8-10 sightings of about 3-4 blue whales, the guys steering the ship took us real close to the whales and we got some awesome views. On the way back we passed by a shoal of dolphins and it was a pleasure to see them whip out of the surface every 3-4 seconds. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed and so did my parents. The guys who were steering the ship were very good and went out of their way to ensure all onboard got great pics. They were also very informative, giving out tidbits of information about the whales every now and then over the blow horn. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. Book in advance though, and try going on a weekday, the crowd is lesser and there is more time given per trip. My whole trip lasted about 2 hours on the sea. Very enjoyable indeed!

What a beautiful afternoon. Our captain was very descriptive about what we were going to see and a few moments later there they are 2 amazing blue whales! Everyone in my group had huge smiles on their faces as we kept track of the minutes waiting for the whales to resurface. Great pleasure to watch these amazing animals. We had lots of room to move about the boat and stand at the rail to get the closest look at the whales. We also kept track with a pod of swift moving dolphins and then we ended our trip by looking at the sea lions in the area. Such a memorable experience and a fun way to see a little more detail about California. My 10 and 12 year old and their 70 yr old Nana loved their adventure and we all agreed to do this tour again. Thank you.

Though we are local, we had family in from Upstate New York. The group ranged in age from 10 to 70. The eldest was in a wheelchair. Every person had a blast and didn't stop talking about it for the rest of the trip. The crew helped my aunt in the wheelchair down and up the ramps. My uncle didn't have to do a thing. They are all super nice and enthusiastic. We all had a great time!

This was an incredible trip. We ended up in the middle of a pod of dophins. They were playing with the boat we were on. Jumping out of the water and swimming all around us. Absoulutly glorious. The captain kept us out there as long as he could, it was great! The captain and crew were very informative and accomodating. I would highly recommend this trip. I know we will be going again.

Did not see any whales this trip out but have seen lots of whales in the past. Good thing is they give you a whale check so you can come back again so it's guaranteed.

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 had a great time. We saw a humpback whale that surfaced a number of times near the boat. The Captain was knowledgeable and informative, and the deckhands were polite and helpful. The boat was nice and clean. The weather was perfect. Our six year old did get bored and whiny. We would be open to doing another trip with the hopes of seeing dolphins.

The trip was cancelled after spending only 30 min on the water. They would not give us our money back. They only gave us a voucher. I can't go back because I am leaving the state. I wasted $30!

...the majority of the people in our party had never been whalewatching before and when I saw the special $8 tickets available, it was a great opportunity to take advantage of this fun event. The weather worked in our favor and we only got drizzled on a little bit....was a great morning - saw a few whales, lots of dolphins and several sea lions. (By the way, the breakfast burrito my boyfriend got onboard was the BOMB - hats off to the cook!)

Our trip from the desert was well worth it Took my folks out for a Father's Day treat. Fully enjoyed it! The captain does his best to get situated for wildlife sightings. In our case whales were a no show. Huge numbers of dolphins, close up, made up for it.
