Great experience for a great price
Thu, Jul 17  5:00 PM Motskrub Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Loved the experience. We took our 10 year old and he was very excited. We saw a few dolphins and about 6 whales. You mostly get to see their backs arch over the water as they dive. If your lucky you saw a tail. Still very cool to be that close to these massive creatures. The crew was very friendly and the boat was clean and beautiful. People started lining up to board 30-45 min before, so if you care about picking your spot, be early. No need to bring binoculars (in my opinion), you're close enough without them, and even looking through the camera zoom lens made it harder to pick them up. Well worth it!

Spotless boat and a captain with a great sense of humor. He ensured that we saw dolphins even though there were no whales in our area during our time slot. I would happily do it again on my next trip to CA.

Excellent! Highly Recommended.

Myself, my husband, and our two young children really enjoyed this. The crew was enthusiastic, friendly, and knowledgeable and the boat was clean with plenty of seating. Shaded seating was also available which was a great choice for our infant. We saw several whales, tons of dolphins, and sea lions. No part of the trip felt slow and we would gladly book another session! The price cannot be beat!

Dolphins were great!

Even though we didn't see any whales the two pods of dolphins we saw were great. We've never seen so many dolphins and the crew seemed very knowledgeable about them. We enjoyed our time on the boat.

Somewhat Disappointing
Thu, Jul 3  2:00 PM Steve7 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We didn't see any whales, which isn't the sole reason for the disappointment (I understand that there has to be luck involved). What I was really disappointed about was the the crew provided no commentary throughout the two hour cruise, except for some comments regarding the sighting of several dolphins towards the end of the excursion. It would have been nice if the crew provided some information on whales in general and perhaps some stories on prior sightings, etc. They all looked bored with their jobs.

FUN...but disappointing

It was a great two hours for the price however we didn't get to see any whales. We did get to see dolphins. Since it's not guaranteed to see whales I don't think i'd pay again to chance not seeing whales again. Still had a good time on the boat.
