Dont be turned off by the rude girl in the office
Sun, Jun 17, 12   2:00 PM TRadek Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We almost didnt book the tour because of the rude woman in the office that we talked to in person when we stopped by to find out about the tour. But instead, did not book tour then, cause she was so short with us and made us feel like "who cares if you book with us or not, but make a decision, cause I have better things to do than talk to you tourists", We live in a VERY touristy area in the rocky mountains, so I know how employees and "owners" can be, and how it doesnt always mean you will be treated badly on your tour just because the person you book it through is rude..so instead, I went back to our condo, looked on line and booked it, being optimistic, and we were SO glad! We went for the tour, and the crew was great, we had a great time, and even though we did not spot whales, it was still a blast, we saw LOTS of dolphins, the crew had lots of great knowledge, we got out on the ocean, and when we got off the boat they gave us a coupon to come free another time, being true to their word that if you dont spot whales you can go free again! Impressed They stood behind their guarantee to see whales! We went the next day, had JUST as great a time, and got to see some whales! we enjoyed the cataraman boat more than the other boat (we did one one day, and the other the next), it just seemed smoother. But either was great and I would do it again. My only suggestion, book online, avoid the office lady so you wont be turned off by the office lady experience, and have a great time! Also, dont book at the end of your trip in case you get to go out again for free!! Cudos to the crew for a job well done, and prayers for the others who have to work in the office with her, i hope you are paid well!!

Enjoyable time at sea

This is a very fun way to spend the day. We had two hours at sea and saw sea lions and a lot of dolphins. We did not see any whales, but that did not matter. The captin is wonderful and tells you everything you need to know. The boat is not crowded so everyone can see well. The seas were calm and there were plenty of opportunities for pictures.

Best Ever

We knew that we were a little late for whale watching as most had migrated north, but our crew spotted a mama gray whale and her baby. We had dolphins racing our catamaran. The ride alone is worth the trip, it is thrilling and so much fun - catamarans are the best! I would do this trip again and again, maybe a bit earlier. The crew was wonderful! Thank you for a great ride!

Whale Watching was the highlight of our trip!
Fri, May 4, 12   12:00 PM DennyFay Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were a group composed of three sisters and our husbands' in California for the wedding of our cousin. He recommended an afternoon of whale watching, and we decided to go, even though it was late in the season. To our delight we not only saw dolphins, but a mother whale and her baby. Jr. was quite the showman! His antics had all of us on the catamaran staring with our mouths agape. The youngster provided an outstanding performance that was simply breathtaking. Our pilot kindly extended our cruise in order to allow plenty of time for everyone to be amazed. It was a magical afternoon.. We all decided that this cruise was the highlight of our trip - and that is saying a great deal as the wedding we attended was held at the Chart House in Dana Point, on Saturday, the day of the Flower Moon! Only the sight of one baby whale hamming it up in what was surely pure joy, and who loved showing off could top those two events! None of us will ever forget it.

THE BETTER ONE

I was torn between the $32 and $42 whale watch at first...turns out the extra $10 IS THE WAY TO GO, it gets you a much less crowded boat, room to roam, a great ride and the crew was fantastic...we didn't see but one minor whale, however they met their guarantee, and we all got free passes to come back again (no expire date)...real customer service!!
