Great trip
Sun, Mar 4, 12   10:00 AM lrae5081 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
Very organized and easy tour to book. We didn't see any whales, but still saw plenty of dolphins and their babies as they played all around the boat for as long as we stayed in the area. The boat was not crowded at all, even though we went during the Whale Festival, so everybody had a good view. The captain narrated the trip and his commentary was very informative and interesting. The crew and staff at the storefront were very pleasant and accommodating as well. We are planning to go back sometime to go fishing with this group.

Fun and relaxing

We didn't see any whales but not for lack of trying. The boat captains did all they could but it just wasn't meant to be. We did see two different species of dolphins and one got very close to the boat. It was a relaxing journey with lovely weather and nice way to see the California coast.

Great deal...fun for the whole family!

We went on the 8:00am/$10.00 deal. It was perfect! The water was very calm and friendly staff. Love that it had bathrooms and a snack bar on the boat. We didn't see any whales but saw a lot of dolphins that were very close to the boat and were putting on a show for us. You can't guarantee you'll see whales....hey, it's nature! ..but definitely worth our money. We had our 6 year old daughter with us, and she didn't get sea sick at all. Pack a snak if you like...and bring something to keep your kids occupied in case they lose interest. We'd do it again!

Great Show of Dolphins but no Sign of Whales
Sun, Mar 4, 12   8:00 AM chica2you Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The boat crew was courteous and we left and arrived back on time. The bathrooms and boat were clean. Our voyage wasn't overcrowded so we had room to move in case our side of the boat was missing the action. The dolphins we saw up close and personal and stayed with them for a substantial amount of time. The only let down: We didn't see whales or any clues they were nearby.

Certainly helped that it was a perfect day weather wise, but had it not been, the entire experience was really great. Boat was so nice and immaculate, staff was friendly, and we saw a pod of dolphins...amazing. Didn't see a whale, but they actually gave our tickets back to try again! Can't wait to go back.

WOW-we saw humpbacks!
Sat, Mar 3, 12   2:00 PM auntiegogo Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
Smooth and comfortable boat ride. Our leaders went the extra mile for us and took us out 7 miles where we were awed by the antics of two humpback whales right by our boat. Neat thing was, the crew were just as excited as we were! Rare sight to see these whales--sometimes they are only viewed 4-5 times a season. Would do this again in a heartbeat.

Handicap assistance zilch
Sat, Mar 3, 12   10:00 AM lois9lane Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
I emailed the company to ask about wheelchair access prior to purchasing tickets. They responded quickly and were helpful, suggesting specific sailings that would be best to take on the date I selected. The times worked into our schedule. But, upon check in and the entire sailing there was no assistance with boarding, and simple things like where the rest room, where the best location for us to sit was, and getting on and off with grace. The cruise was glorious, even though we didn't see whales, only dolphins. Oh, they didn't give everyone in our party a coupon to return with 50 off either. Only gave it to 3 out of 5. Even after I asked. That sucked.

This was a nice trip with clean, safe and professional accomodations. However, we did not see any whales so was really disappointed. Whenever these trips promise to see whales there is an even bigger disappointment if none. We saw dolphins and many birds so all was not lost! The Captain was friendly and informative, I would have liked him to speak more on the wildlife as he seemed to know alot and was quite interesting.

Disappointed that we didn't see any whales
Sat, Mar 3, 12   8:00 AM lindakallen Female 70+ Local Couple on a Date
We went whale watching on a beautiful Sat. morning at 8:00. It was nippy, but clear as a bell. The man that narrarated the trip on the loud speaker was quite informative. We saw several pods of dophins going through the water which was fun to see. However, the closest we came to seeing a whale was a few bubbles on the surface of the water. I guess a whale was swimming in the area, but too lazy to surface, so we could see him. Since we got a discounted price on the trip, we definitely felt it was worth the money.

Didn't see whales, but...

...we saw plenty of dolphins and other wild life! The views of the coast from the water are breath-taking. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. I would take another tour with this company in hopes of seeing whales!
