Excellent trip. Good presentation. You can't control the fishing, the weather or the whale watching.

We saw whales!

My mother, who was in town visiting for the week, and I decided to try whale watching since neither of us ever had. I wasn't sure how good the chances of actually seeing whales was, so when I found the half price Tuesday deal it seemed like no question! To us it would have been worth the 22 bucks just to be out on the ocean for two hours. But we started out visiting a family of dolphins who were extremely playful and swam after the waves of the boat and jumped out of the water right next to us. After, we visited a large blue whale who had been feeding in the area all morning! Our boat was 95 feet long and held probably 50-75 people and blue whales are the largest in the world! When they told us this whale was almost as long as our boat we were in awe! Of course we could not get extremely close to the whale, and we were ony able to catch its back arching out of the water. It spouts some air and arches for a few breaths before spending about 10 minutes at a time underwater, so it can be tricky getting close to them long enough. But they said they hadn't seen whales previously this season yet, so it would be worth it to go now if there's a chance!! Even to see the top of this animal and imagine its actual size is pretty unreal! It got a little crowded at the nose of the boat when trying to get a perfect view of the whale, but overall there was PLENTY of room for everyone to get a view as it was a large boat. I would suggest binoculars if you have them! All in all, a wonderful experience!

It was a quiet day but still saw a Blue Whale. What a fantastic site. The captain did his best for us to have a chance to see some sea life.

I thought it was fun, the captain was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately we did not get to see anything other than dolphins. I would definitely recommend the trip, hopefully you will have better luck finding some whales.

NO whales but still a nice boat ride

We saw several sea lions sunning themselves, then some of the boat got a brief glimpse of a minki whale which the captain attempted to relocate but was unsuccessful. We moved onto some hot spots but didn't see anything again until the last few minutes of our trip, upon re-entering the harbor some of the boat saw dolphins. Since it wasn't a successful trip we all received a "whale check" to return for another adventure whenever we would like. We would all do it again.

awesome deckhands, nice gear to rent, skipper obvioulsy knew where the fish were, everyone on the boat was catching, deckhands would take care of everything, measure and toss back if it was under size, cool lil contest at the end, for the largest fish, and they will clean your catch for a dollar a fish. great day on a great boat with great people, and damn the fish were TASTY!

The group on the boat was small enough that there was no problem seeing the sea life. We saw whales even though both the grey and blue whales were not running. We saw "minkey" whales. We will return when the blue whales are running.

We didn't see any whales, but saw a bunch of dolphins. I was disappointed about the whales, however the crews' knowledge of the dolphins was very extensive. I felt that we should have gotten a future discount ticket or something since we didn't see whales.

While I understand and accept the fact that this is a nature trip and the company does not have control over what kind and how many different animals may be seen on the tour, we were mislead to believe there would be a good chance of seeing marine life, specifically, whales. However, we later learned that our trip was scheduled during an "off-season" for seeing whales. Just be honest. We still would've gone on the trip, but now I feel duped!

We didnt particularly like this tour for two main reasons. First, the cruise catered to the local Ritz, that had a group of 10 or so. The crew brought out loads of free food and drinks to them, while the rest were sitting around them. Secondly, we first saw a group of dolphins and spent about 45 min around them. After about 15 min we were ready to see whales but we continued to follow. Finally for the last hour we looked for whales and did not see any. It was VERY uneventful. When we got off, I asked if we get to come back and see whales or get a partial refund. The crew said no, because we did see some kind of marine life. For us, it was a waste of time and money.

The tour was well organised, the crew were helpful and informative/educational, the trip itself was enjoyable and it was great to see the sea lions and lots of dolphins..pity we didn't sight a whale! All in all a great experience..and I would happily recommend it to others.
