Too long
Sat, Mar 6, 10   12:00 PM daxrizo Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
the boat was too slow and upon arrival we had only but 15 minutes to wait for the whales to surface. another boat, same category, passed us on the way out and loitered around the whales much longer than we did. frankly not worth the price.

We enjoyed our experience!
Sat, Mar 6, 10   9:00 AM dianawillmes Female 30-39 Local Family Without Children
The fact that we saw two whales, and one was jumping out of the water made our experience unforgettable! The boat was on time, and the captain knew a lot about the whales. Would totally do that again!

Bargain price Easy location to find. Efficient checkin and boarding Friendly staff Clean, safe looking boat. Comfortable accomodations Successful sighting of sea lions, dolphins, gray whales Just the right duration in time --- not under your control --- Beautiful day In time to "do lunch" at the harbor with a good glass of chablis. ---minor recommendation --- Maybe a little more low volume narration ( I wondered about the house on the cliffs too) with speakers located about the boat. I did catch most of what the marine biologist had to say but only because I was near him. Great time

Just long enough to enjoy sun and sea, the trip was affordable, the crew upbeat and successful in taking us alongside several whales which just broke the water several times.

We would highly recommend this trip. We saw 3 whales and the captain kept up with them so we could obtain lots of photographs and he provided a lot of factual information. We also saw lots of dolphins and sea lions. Very enjoyable trip and we would certainly go again.

Three fin whales lunge feeding with a golden sunset in the background. It doesn't get any better than that!

Beautiful day
Sun, Feb 14, 10   2:00 PM nursenaya Female 30-39 Local Family Without Children
Our boat was the first of the day to see a gray whale. I have never been that close to a whale. The pod of dolphins we saw was huge, there had to be at least a hundred dolphins jumping in and out of the water. I do recommend having a camera with no delay if you want pictures. The crew was very friendly and informative. Best place to be is in the front of the boat.

Twilight Squid Fishing & 1/2 day trip
Thu, Feb 11, 10   5:30 PM kspeidel Female 40-49 Combination Family Without Children
We went out squid fishing 2 nights after they had their final catch of squid. The captain made the decision to take us out farther where they could possibly be found since the close spots had been exhausted. It appears the squid have headed out. No squid were caught but we had a great evening The captain and the team gave it a good try for us. We went out a few days later on a 1/2 day boat and caught a lot of fish! Sand bass, calico, bass, sheep head, baracuda, halibut, lobster etc. Fun!!! There was always a "fish on" for someone on the boat. The staff is so wonderful and friendly and helpful.

True Test of a Good Company
Sun, Jan 31, 10   12:00 PM mccrery Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The day was beautiful and we saw a few dolphins but no whales. Liked the boat (much quieter than expected). The test of a good company is not when everything goes as hoped and/or planned. We chose this company because of their policy that if no whales are seen, you get a "whale check" (free trip in the future during whales season). There is no expiration date. You just have to have the ticket. The policy was honored. We may or may not be able to go again since we're from out of town but we're impressed with the handling of it. We did not have to ask. It was told over the loud speakers before we docked. Pleasant crew just an uneventful trip. Only suggestion is that there be disclosure that the "online purchase discount of $2 per person" is offset by the service charge of $2 per person (resulting in no discount at all). This is interpreted as a "smoke and mirrors" trick out of character for the company and not appreciated.

Whales not guaranteed
Sat, Jan 30, 10   2:00 PM vmotis Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
Being on the waer was fun and we saw lots of dolphins of varying types which ws cool. The crew was knowledgeable and helpful but the disappointment was not seeing any actual whales. Would have liked to know ahead of time the likelihood of seeing one, e.g. did any other boats th day see one. The consolation prize was a going past a buoy where sea lions hang out. Being up close tothem was interesting but not what we came on the trip to see. We'll probably try again but will ask questions and do some research ahead of time to see if any whales are being sighted.
