A bit disorganized and unprofessional
Sat, Jun 18, 11   10:00 AM lucerosmith Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
I will say that the fishing trip was nice. everyone in our group caught fish. The scheduling of the trip was a bit disorganized. Confirmed a 6:30 am trip then via email (no call) was told the trip was rescheduled to 10 am. No refund if that time didn't work out for us. One person in our group however maintained a 6:30 am departure time. When I called they said that they didn't have a 6:30 am boat but then one came up just not big enough for everyone in the group (3 people total). They rescheduled the last guy from the 6:30 am spot to the 10 am spot with the rest of us. When we arrived they told us that our one friend had been moved from the 6:30 am (saturday) spot to to 10 am spot on the previous Monday and he missed it. Finally got it all cleared up and we were able to go on the trip together. Kind of a headache... CONFIRM you departure day and time... at least twice!!!

Relaxing Ride - lots of dolphins, 1 whale
Sat, Jun 11, 11   2:00 PM cathycares Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Nice boat and staff, comfortable ride although it was an overcast day. We observed several groups of common dolphins - they came up to boat in groups and jumped etc. They were fun to watch. Towards the end of the ride we had a blue whale in the distance. The boat chased after the whale and we saw a small part of the whale several times. Too bad it didn't come fully to the surface as it looked huge! I would recommend the tour!

A great evening "out"....

We did not see whales the Tuesday we went but did see lots of dolphin, sea lion pups, etc. It was a great value. Educational, fun, relaxing, refreshing. In future, we will be taking all our out-of-town visitors!

Didn't see any whales this trip, but did see some dolphins toward the end of the trip. Because we didn't see much, we got our tickets back to go another time. Thought it was great that they were that concerned that we saw more than a few dolphins! The boat is roomy with lots of opportunities to see what's out there. All in all, can't wait to go again!

BEST E TICKET RIDE EVER!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sun, May 15, 11   5:00 PM JanetHolley Unspecified Unspecified Local Group of Friends
The Captain and C0-Captain know their stuff. The water was rough and they handled it like the "Biggest Catch". They were pleasant, definitely professional and had the knowlege of the water and boat plus the gift of taking control and transmitting to the passengers "you are in good hands". They provided security of mind and body along with some wonderful laughter and fun. We had over rwo dozen in our group all mixed ages . They get an A+ from our group.

Always have fun on these charters. I wish their prices were more in the 25-35 dollar range. I would go more often.

Simply Amazing

Here we have a boat and a crew to which they do not hold anything back. My trip was Sunday May 15, 2011 and we had some beautiful sunny Southern Califonia weather just up until the weekend of my trip. I have an understanding of fish, and fishing so I was aware the sudden change would cause the fish to calm down and not be the wide open bite the fish counts were previously indicating. Before we arrived to our first fishing hole there was a demonstration for the boat, kind of like a fishing 101 for those were were not familiar with what to do. I see this as a great addition to the trip and commend the crew for even putting on the display. The fish were simply not in a mood to bite, but I cannot blame Captain, or crew for any of this as they were all over the place making sure everyones line was in the water at a spot that would normally provide. So even though our fish did not cooperate the crew did what was needed to keep spirits up, and the morale high even for the youngsters who more than likely though they would be catching fish the whole time. For all of the above mentioned I would recommend this boat/trip to anyone looking to get out on the water and have a good time doing it, no matter what the circumstance.

Fantastic

Captain Larry did a wonderful job and with enthusiasm. You can tell that he loves what he does, so he does it well... It was a lot of fun and we saw thousands of dolphins happy to see us while they were playing all around our boat. They even practiced jumping the waves at the back of the boat. It was exciting!

Horrible Trip!!
Sat, Apr 30, 11   5:30 PM Radhi96 Male Under 20 Unspecified Group of Friends
So i went on the same boat last summer and it was great. Caught lots of fish and even had god food, but this timeit was a different story. ther didnt even take us to a good spot didnt chum the water out of the 30 people on the boat 10 fish were caught the food took a good 30 minutes to get to you and the crew was horrible. DONT GO ON THIS TRIP!!!!! I may be young but i am an experienced fisherman and i think this was a waist of money. Pick another company to give your monry to.

Two great experiences!
Thu, Apr 21, 11   2:00 PM BLecuona Unspecified 40-49 Combination Group of Friends
We recently brought friends visiting from Pittsburgh on a whale watching trip. The adults and kids enjoyed it completely. We were lucky enough to follow a mother whale with her baby for a long time, and to top it off, they were joined by several bottle nose dolphin! I could not have been happier to share the experience with my good friends! A once in a lifetime experience for many!

We had decided to see California from the water and had settled on a whale watch. What a great surprise to find 1/2 price Tuesday. The crew was friendly, the water was calm and the dolphins fun to watch. I am still determined to see a whale. Maybe next time?
