Fun even tho no whales
Sat, Dec 8, 07   2:00 PM ssassen Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
we went out on a cold and windy day. Unfortunately we didn't spot any whales. The trip was fun though - and we got a pass to come back again for free. The boat was nice and well-maintained - and the crew seemed very professional. Our only suggestion is that there could have been more commentary during the trip. No one said anything from when we left until we got back. I'm only assuming they would have said something if we had seen a whale.

Fun boat ride but no whales.
Sun, Mar 11, 12   3:00 PM sroberts3063 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
It was a nice day for a boat ride and saw lots of dolphins but no whales. The boat was nice but no whales. They gave us a ticket to come back but seeing as how they are not seeing whales and I live 2,000 miles away it doesn't seem like a free ticket is all that valuable.

Nice Boat Ride
Tue, Mar 16, 10   10:00 AM srfranklin Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was a fun trip, but the service was a bit odd. There were no paper towels in the bathroom, and no one seemed interested in putting any in there. A bit yucky. We did not see any whales, but the dolphins were fun.

The 1/2 day trip was a lot of fun. It was my first time fishing on a boat and It was a lot easier than I thought it would be. The crew is there to help if you need it.

Watched a pod of 3
Sat, Mar 14, 09   2:00 PM srahearn Female 50-59 Local Other
The day was cloudy and cold until we got out on the water, then the sun broke through and it was beautiful. We watched a pod of 3 whales for about 30 minutes or more, then caught some sea lions napping on a buoy. My granddaugher -age 14- absorbed a lot of information from the naturalist and really enjoyed our outing. We will definitely do this again.

Blue Whale Sighted!
Tue, Aug 21, 12   10:00 AM squanto Female 60-69 Local Other
Everything went well on this tour. We saw many dophin pods swimming and jumping up out of the water. Then suddently - a blue whale surfaced - did her spouting several times - arched her back, and down she went. My granddaughter and I will never forget the beauty of seeing the largest animal on earth. Our captain was an expert at handling the boat, and narrating - keeping us imformed the entire tour.

I fished the October of 2011 and had a good time. The staff was courteous and efficient. Food was even good. I took the 5 hour pm trip and would due it again.

Great experience!

Well, we had an amazing but maybe not typical experience. The trip we were on wasn't too crowded which was really nice. Then we got to follow a mama gray whale with her baby. The baby actually breached, and I caught it on video. We really enjoyed our trip. I got some food from the galley, too. The grilled cheese was delicious.

Great adventure!

Although I live locally my dad and his wife were in town from Wisconsin. It was a great activity both for them being out of town and for my 3 year old daughter. We saw a ton of dolphins, 2 whales (which I wasn't anticipating) as well as the seals, not to mention the beautiful landscape. I would recommend the cruise for both locals and out of towners!

Enjoyed the ride and observing sealife. Captain seemed very knowledgeable and the crew was professional and friendly. Unfortunately the whales didn't want to come up much above the surface that day but we did see them!

The captain was great, knew a lot about the animals we saw. It was educational and perfect for my 6 year old and I. The captain made sure we had plenty of time with the dolphins, awesome experience.

We saw whales
Wed, Aug 3, 11   5:00 PM spenser1 Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
The captain did find whales and stayed on them/it. Unfortunately the whales kept diving and staying under for 10 minutes at a time. We did get fairly close to the whale. Which was difficult for the captain as the whale only took up to 5 breaths before diving down again.

We received the ticket quickly and had a wonderful time on our whale-watching trip. The captain went above and beyond making it an enjoyable trip.
