Thing to know...
Wed, Aug 17, 11   10:00 AM Michelle0770 Unspecified 40-49 Local Family Without Children
Here are some things I wish I knew before I went on the fishing trip. I wish I would have known to bring needle nose pliers and wire cutters also a knife so I could have taken care of my own re-hooking, detangling and baiting. Also you might want to take into consideration if school’s out, on our boat we had so many kids running around it was really irritating. A lot of people brought food to eat on the boat which if I knew I would have done the same. Make sure you bring a small towel for your hands and don’t forget a jacket. That’s all 

This is the first time for whale watching for my wife and I. I really did not know what to expect since it was out of whale migration season. This was definitely the best part of our vacation. Expecting only 1 or 2 whale sighting, the crew explained how unusual our trip was. We saw 10 or more whales and some very playful dolphins. I have the pictures to prove. A great experience!

Making this excursion by boat made for a different experience. We saw several whales from a distance and were able to approach closely enough to see them blow and dive. Really topnotch adventure.

We were lucky to see blue whales at very close range. The catamaran was easily manueuvered into range; the ocean was exceptionally clear (and apparently tasty, judging by the number of whales feeding in the area). The catamaran was not crowded, so we could see from every angle. The naturalist was helpful, but I did not like the rock music playing onboard throughout the visit.

The boat was roomy. The captain was full of great information. We saw 4 individual blue whales - quite a treat.

Just Okay, Not Great

We recently went out for a 1/2, which my family ended up calling the "mackerel" fishing trip, since that's pretty much all we caught. I was a bit disappointed to say the least. The two deck hands were okay, nothing great and the skipper seemed to be more interested in catching his own fish. I realize not every trip is going to be a home run, but I have to wonder about the fish counts they're putting up, as the count on this trip was pretty bad.

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 saw about 3 blue whales over and over again. It was great fun. The captain and crew did as much as they could to ensure we all had the opportunity to see the whales.

We had a great time. Altogether we saw 3-4 blue whales. The captain went out of his way to find whales for us, and it's nice that they can network with other boats to find out where they are. The crew was informational and gave us many facts about blue whales too. We went on our tour beginning of August. I hear mid-July is a good time to start looking for whales.

I have been wanting to do this for many years and finally had the chance to go,,,,I loved the experience! The boat ride was great, even though I was a bit frightened of getting sea sick. We decided to get some Dramamine just incase and the ride was just fine, it worked ,,lol! Id would suggest this to all , its worth the $ to see at least once. We saw about three differnt whales and lots of dolphins. I would say its a MUST at least once!
