The tour was beautiful and fun. We saw hundreds of dolphins. The kids loved it! The crew was extremely helpful in assisting my father with his wheelchair. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone visiting the area. It was a highlight of our trip.

"Coolest day of my life!"
Fri, Aug 23, 13   2:00 PM Swaine777 Female 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
My 12 year old son and I went on this trip. He has extensively traveled and to this point in his life rated Legoland over the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Thailand, the Olympics and everything else. Mid-trip he declared this "the coolest day of my life!" The captain taught us a lot and we hope to return someday with the rest of our family.

great family outing

We enjoyed a sunny day on the water last Sunday. Though no whales were seen, the 2 hour tour fit the bill for the attention span of my younger 2 kids (4 and 7 yrs) - though the 10 year old would have been more excited to actually see whales. We saw a beautiful pod of dolphins, some seals and sea lions. The fresh-grilled burger and BLT sandwich were awesome! The little kids loved the ring pops. Some families were experiencing seasickness but we did OK. I will consider a longer trip (one of the 3-4 hour ones) with just my 10 year old to increase our chance of seeing a whale. The boat seemed pretty full but we found an outdoor table with bench seats and then moved around to the sides when we wanted to get closer to view the dolphins

Wonderful trip!

We had a really lovely trip! The captain and crew were very friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience fun for everyone. There was lots of excitement when we found a rare pod of Dahl's Porpoises. We also saw a resting grey whale, and around 50 bottlenose dolphins. The dolphins' antics even encouraged the seasick members of our group to get up and watch! All in all, we had a great time and will go again. =)

Our cruise was a bit rocking due to the wind, but it was so fun and our captain was very knowledgable and clearly enjoys what he does!! We were out for 90 min, saw soo many dolphins, but could not get out pass the point due to the choppy seas. But we got "whale checks" and are going again this weekend. Plus 50% off our next cruise!! You just can't beat that !

We observed little sea life, not for lack of trying, but the experience was great in spite of that. The boat was very nice and clean and handled the rough seas without difficulty. We were disappointed that we did not see whales or schools of dolphins, but we enjoyed the overall experience.

My family and I had a fantastic time on the Whale watching tour. It was a great day for whale watching. We saw about 5 or 6 whales and a ton of dolphins. It was the highlight of our vacation.

Not much of a trip.
Wed, Apr 7, 10   12:00 PM Suzhov Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
Having gone on many such excursions, I was disappointed in the fact that the boat went out from the harbor a couple of miles then just sort of circled for about an hour, then went south towards San Clemente for a short distance, then turned back to the harbor. No whales was not the problem, I just did not think that they made a very good effort to find any. Did see a few dolphins.

Being that it was our family's first time ocean fishing, the overall experience was great. The crew was very helpful and we all caught fish!

Great way to spend a couple of hours

We went on this trip hoping to see whales and we did! The crew were diligent about tracking down the whales and we saw them 7 or 8 times during the trip. They are wild creatures so there are no close ups. However, we got close enough to see their black shiny bodies and see them spray water until they dived down again. It was a great experience and worth it.

Well worth the money - the captain was informative and tried his best to capture as much marine life as he could.

we didn't see any whales or dolphins and therefore got two free tickets for a future ride with no expiration date. That was worth it

Well worth the cost

Saw lots of dolphins and whales - good crew, comfortable ship - the rules state that you can't bring food, but lots of people did, so save some cash and carry it on
