Not Impressed
Tue, Feb 26, 08   2:00 PM papathack Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
After the trip was over and we had not seen whales, I felt that I had been had. We were told that we would get a free trip if no whales or dolphins were seen. The first thing the ship did was head out and show us dolphins, which was nice, but not what we had come to see. Then the next hour was spent cruising around supposedly looking for whales. I think they knew there weren't any whales in the area at that time and rather than be truthful up front and since they obviously sell tickets each day whales or no whales, it is a bit of a hustle.

No Whales, But Awesome Dolphins

We were disappointed that we didn't see any whales, but the beautiful dolphins more than made up for that. Thanks.

Although we only saw one whale, it was a great trip - sunny, clear, calm. I would go again just to get 2 hours out on the ocean.

We really enjoyed the trip. The weather was perfect. We saw plenty of common dolphins and finally saw a whale an hour and a half into the trip. He put on a great show for us though. All-in-all, the trip was great!

A wonderful experience

I thought initially we would never see whales. Just usually my luck, but with the crew knowing where to go I had the fantastic experience of seeing a calf and mother with yet another whale on the return portion of the trip. A highly recommended experience. What a value! I will return.

fishing was poor

i was hoping to catch more fish on this trip. this being my first time for this trip, i realize that my inexperience may have had some part in my lack of great success. also, i know that there was limited time with only a five hour trip time . i really believe that those who frequent the ocean in boats probably know where to go for better success. i have an idea that our trip may have been made more successful with a bit more dedication to providing a successful fishing trip. not only i, but most others no board were only marginally succesful on this trip. i did have a nice trip, without rough waters, and the scenery along the coastline is a positive aspect . my daughter and son-in-law seemed to enjoy the trip. the crew seemed adequately trained and we were kept informed of the overall entent of the captain's course of action, when and where to drop our lines and the depth we were fishing. also helpful was the fact that the crew on board knwe the fish species and the regulations. i have limited knowledge regarding the local fish species, what is good to keep ( not that that affected my catch ) and the size limits for the lower ca. oceanic waters .

Clean, well run fishing boat. The action was about as expected for a winter day on a half day run.

Wonderful Things We Saw
Sat, Dec 29, 07   2:00 PM JosephRhodes Female 60-69 Unspecified Family With Children
The weather was a bit overcast with intermittent sunshine. We left the wharf on time and headed out to "sea." Shortly, the narrator spotted dolphins that swam along with the boat - underneath to the other side, right along and out in front. There were "oohs" and "aahs" watching these wondeful creatures. After a while, we headed to a marker and saw "resident" sea lions baksing ini the sun. Then way off a bit north, there was a spray and it was a gray whale. We followed it for some time watching as it came to the surface and then disappeared only to come up a while further on its path south. We were able to get good pictures, too. We had an 11 and a 10 year old [boys] with us and they had a great time, too.

Very relaxing & smooth cruise. Unfortunately we did not see any Whales.They very graciously gave us a return ticket for another day. We enjoyed the 2 hour cruise.

What a Day!
Fri, Nov 23, 07   12:00 PM felinepub Female 60-69 Local Other
The trip started on time, the crew were friendly and helpful, the day was beautiful, seas were clam, and the food was good (thank heavens that we don't ever get sea sick). We didn't get to see any whales but it's only the beginning of one season and the ending of another, but the Captain found a large pod of dolphins and took us to the center and we got to enjoy their play (sometimes right under the bow of the ship)...what a wonderful experience. The Captain also educated us about what we encountered along the way. Thanks much.

Had great fun, as always.

The trip was fun - this is the 3rd time my Grandson and I have done it. We didn't catch mayn fish - 8 between the two of us - but we had a good time. One recommendation is that the crew needs to be more friendly. They were way to serious. I know they do this every day but we don't. They need to be part of making this fun. One other thing is it would be niece to have a poster to see what types of fish we might be catching. I am from the Northeast so I am not familiar with the local species. But, all in all, we had a fun day. Thanks.

This was a short excursion on our way from San Jose to Tucson to take my youngest daughter to college, UA. We were joined by my other daughter, age 21. I cannot tell you how refreshing and exciting this was for all of us. Thank you for a lovely tour.

A sea worthy experience!

Hubby and I decided to do this for our 40th anniversary after visiting nearby San Clemente. The check in staff were very helpful, even holding my flowers for us while we were on the catamaran. The crew was honest telling us that they would look for whales, but that nature prevailed and we may not see then, We knew that before hand. Getting to see the dolphins swim along side us and jumping around us was cool. The staff pointed out the 2 type of dolphins we saw. We stayed at the front of the catamaran the whole time enjoying the scene and ocean spray. We hope to go again in the future.
