When individuals from outside California call to make a reservation, please share more information about fishing conditions and how they are different through out the year. Also we were unaware that food would be available on the boat.

Staff was friendly even if customers were not. We didn't see a whale, but they don't guarantee that you will. The dolphin's were cool.

Whale watch, worth the trip!
Tue, Mar 17, 09   2:00 PM WBailey Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
Enjoyed the trip out to watch the gray whales. Followed a couple of grays for quite a distance. The grays are always amazing creatures to watch, but almost more exciting is the pods of dolpins also seen on the trip. We have been out before, but on this trip we were taken back by the hundreds of dolphins we saw this time around. Their playfulness and common interest in playing in the boat's wake is certainly something to see. Great fun and phenomenal pics (in and out of the water!) We always enjoy the ride, the crew and the tour. Learn something new each time and find the trip well worth the money!

The boat and guides were terrific. We were able to see several whales. We saw hundreds of dolphins. The day was perfect in every way. Thanks for a great trip.

Great time!

We had a great time and yes we saw several whales. The amount of people on the boat was just right with everyone able to see because it wasn't crowded. We went during the Festival of Whales and the whole event was wonderful and we hope to make it again next year!

Wheres the whales
Tue, Mar 10, 09   10:00 AM EILEENSAUCER Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I planned my trip with the Whale migration in mind. I bought tickets online to make sure we had tickets. I wanted to see the Whales. It is whale season and there should have been many whales. We barely saw any and they were far away. we saw a spout of water, a fin and some of the side from far away. I had expected to see them closer, with babies and more. We felt lucky to have seen what we did considering the fact that it looked like we weren't going to see any.The people on the other side of the boat didn't get to see any and once we had seen one good one they turned the boat around and headed back. VERY Disappointed!

Captain was very negative in his talk.
Tue, Mar 10, 09   10:00 AM dleedonahue Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
I have taken this trip many times before with great pleasure. However, this captain was preoccupied talking with other ships and would tell us where the whales had come up but it was not until the very end that anyone believed that there were whales to be seen. He talked about sea lice and the killing of whales and the people on the boat were just shaking their heads. There are so many beautiful things that can be said about the whales and the dolphins and these things have been shared iin the past by other captains. We did not see one dolphin which was very unusual.

We went out on a Tuesday and it was wonderful. Not only did we get to see 3 whales but the captain was great about explaing everything we were seeing. I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting but also to those who live here.

I received this trip as a birthday gift. I had been whale watching in different places 3 times before, and had never seen a whale, so I was hoping to see one this time. The captain, crew and naturalist were fabulous, very interested in our comfort and questions. They had charts and books onboard to further educate us. We had plenty of room to sit and see. All at once, there was a Gray Whale, a juvenile male, going the wrong direction! He was friendly to us and let us get closer, showed us his fluke and flipper and he lounged in the sea. He stayed near the boat for quite awhile. "Happy Birthday!" the naturalist said to me. On the way back dolphins played in the wake of the boat, we saw a Sun fish, and two other whales. Also sea lions, pelicans and all kinds of other birds. One lady took beautiful pictures and emailed them to us. This is a birthday I'll never forget!

I finally saw a Grey Whale....

I've been on many whale watching trips since I has in junior high and I finally saw one. It didn't come out of the water very much, just breathing. I was able to catch with my digital camera. This definitely made my weekend, being the Festival of Whales and all!
