Love Whales

The 10:00 tour was not crowded so allowed easy viewing. We saw several whales. I love whale watching so can never have a bad time.

The boat was clean....we cast off on time....the crew was helpful and talked to everyone......knowledgeable.....AND We had a whale frolicking next to the boat for almost an hour. The whale and dolphins and sea lions seemed to be playing with each other and keeping up with the boat.

Overall a fun cruise!

The crew really made efforts to show us the blue whale and we saw where it was (water spout) but the whale wasn't so cooperative in coming above the surface! The crew then made a successful effort to catch up with a pod of dolphins and we were able to watch the dolphins on both sides of the boat swimming and jumping out of the water. This was a neat experience! The boat was not too crowded so it made viewing easy. I would recommend this cruise to others.

A terrific afternoon!

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. We loved having a marine biologist on board to tell us what we were seeing and to answer questions. The captain made every effort to get us to where we were able to see about 30 minutes of blue whale activity even though it meant we would be a little late getting back. It made the cruise that much more enjoyable. The crew was friendly and helpful and the catamaran was clean and comfortable. We had a great time.

disappointed.

Not because we did not see any whales, but because there were too many people and even if the whales did come by not everyone could visualize them. Unless you are standing at the "exact" spot or you have a bench up on top. I would have paid extra to sit on top if offered instead of "first come, first serve" . But the weather was beautiful and so I enjoyed the beautiful ocean and land views...

Boat personnel were great, but the ocean was rough
Sat, Mar 15, 08   10:00 AM pam4man Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
The weather had been beautiful, up to the day we had scheduled our whale watching tour. A big storm was coming in, and the ocean was very rough. Several in our group got seasick, as did many others on the boat. We did not see any whales or dolphins. But the good news is that we were given a return trip ticket for free, which is good forever (as long as we don't lose it). We have been whale watching before, and had a wonderful time. Just our luck to get bad weather! We do plan to go again. The crew and employees were great, the boat was clean and roomy.

No whales seen on our trip

We did not see any whales on our trip, but we were given vouchers to use on any return trip. We are from Indiana, but plan on going out to California again in the next couple of years. They said that the vouchers were good forever, so we plan to use them later. Seas were pretty choppy that day. Crew seemed helpful. would recommend this to friends

We went out on a 1/2 day boat for my son's 10th birthday. There were 8 altogehter with two 10 year olds. The day was great. Beautiful weather. The captain announced my son's birthday on the loud speaker and everyone cheered. He got such a kick out of that. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast burrito from the gally was big and tasty! We didnt catch a great deal of fish, but we enjoyed the day very much and would go out with them again. Overall a fun day and a good experience.

This trip was the perfect amount of time - 2 hours. Although we didn't see a whale, it was nice to be out on the ocean on a nice boat on a warm sunny day. We saw lots of dolphins and the captain was very informative about the sea life that we encountered. Overall it was a pleasant day.

overall a nice activity but....

A nice way to spend a couple hours with friends or family but it should be named "Dolphin Watching Tour." I have taken this trip 3 times in the last couple of years (in March) and have yet to see any whales. Although we have not seen any whales, at least we have seen dolphins every time - it was fun to see them. Can't expect to see whales every time but so far it has been 0 for 3.

Because of the half price Tuesdays, a friend and I got a group together to enjoy a couole hours on the water. The crew was great! Very interactive with the passengers. If you want to go whale watching, do it! Don't put it off. Have fun!

We had free passes to use later. We will try one more time. I would like to express that all the people in the crew were so nice and friendly.
