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
Tue, Jun 5, 12   12:00 PM Kgaucker Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
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!

So, So

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.

We knew that we were a little late for whale watching as most had migrated north, but our crew spotted a mama gray whale and her baby. We had dolphins racing our catamaran. The ride alone is worth the trip, it is thrilling and so much fun - catamarans are the best! I would do this trip again and again, maybe a bit earlier. The crew was wonderful! Thank you for a great ride!

Whale Watching was the highlight of our trip!
Fri, May 4, 12   12:00 PM DennyFay Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were a group composed of three sisters and our husbands' in California for the wedding of our cousin. He recommended an afternoon of whale watching, and we decided to go, even though it was late in the season. To our delight we not only saw dolphins, but a mother whale and her baby. Jr. was quite the showman! His antics had all of us on the catamaran staring with our mouths agape. The youngster provided an outstanding performance that was simply breathtaking. Our pilot kindly extended our cruise in order to allow plenty of time for everyone to be amazed. It was a magical afternoon.. We all decided that this cruise was the highlight of our trip - and that is saying a great deal as the wedding we attended was held at the Chart House in Dana Point, on Saturday, the day of the Flower Moon! Only the sight of one baby whale hamming it up in what was surely pure joy, and who loved showing off could top those two events! None of us will ever forget it.
