Winter Solstice trip on Catamaran was spectacular
Thu, Dec 22, 11   2:00 PM mzbadger Female 70+ Local Group of Friends
I go out with a group of 25 to 40 people every few months . on both the Catamaran and regular boat. Every trip

is a little different like the moods of the sea. We almost always have lots of dolphins come to play, sometimes

small pods and sometimes the ocean bubbles with 1000's of dolphins leaping and playing. The common

dolphins always want to hang out with the boat. on the Solstice we saw two whales blow like Old Faithful

and surface like islands rising out of the sea. Then we got "tailed". A bunch of porpoises showed up like they came

for a play date. The captains are all terrific, keeping you well informed and going the extra mile to make sure

you have the best experience possible. It's a great way to spend a few hours on the sea with our ocean

dwelling friends and seeing our beautiful coastline.

Worth the Money

Purchase of tickets was quick and simple. Location was easy to find, clean, neat docks. Boarding was quick and easy. Blue Whales spotted within ten minutes of heading out to open water. Three quarters of cruise was spent whale watching and managed to see a pod of Risso dolphins too. A clear beautiful day. Informative staff, and most importantly...not too crowded. Plenty of room to move about and get those saught after pictures. The catamaran is a smoother ride however, if you are prone to motion sickness think about taking some Dramamine an hour prior to departure. We had a fabulous time and have already recommended this trip to others.

Fun and Educational

We were very fortunate to see two blue whales almost immediately after clearing the jetties. The captain tagged along with them for over an hour, allowing for many sitings. On the way back to the harbor, we came across some Risso's dolphins...a first for me. The crew did a wonderful job making sure everyone knew where to look and when as well as provide lots of interesting facts on what we were seeing. My grandchildren and I had a wonderful time.

Whale watch was wxcellent.
Sat, Oct 29, 11   12:00 PM gtheodoseau Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
We thoroughly enjoyed the whale watch. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather, smooth seas and multiple viewings of wild life (20+ whales, sea lions and a large pod of dolphins). Probably conditions are not always as favorable as we experienced. The boat was comfortable and the crew was very accommodating.

It was an awesome day out on the water, lots of dolphins at first then we spotted several fin whales. Then the big blue whale showed up and was playing all around the boat along with a seal lion. Great fun was had by all!
