My husband and I took our 6 year old daughter who had a blast. It was relaxing to be out on the water and the crew was quite personable! Look forward to our next time out.

Enjoyable

I have been on the whale watching adventure twice. We enjoyed the experience. Certainly wished one could be guaranteed to see a whale on a whale watching trip. It would be nice to have spotters pre-locate whales and or be offered a follow-up trip for a chance to see the whales on another day if you are not lucky enough to see one. The first trip we were on, we say the gray whale and the talk was all about seeing the Blue Whale. We re-booked in June hoping to see what all the talk was about and did not see the great blue whale. Maybe next time. We will try again.

Relaxing Ride - lots of dolphins, 1 whale

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!

Even though we didn't see any whales, I still thoroughly enjoyed ALL the dolphins we were able to see. I can't remember his name, but the gentleman who told us all about what we were seeing was very nice and engaging. Would do it again

Great Time

We drove down from Los Angeles to enjoy the harbor for the day. I enjoy whales and dolphins, but since you aren't always guaranteed to see whales don't be disappointed. We saw a ton of dolphins and the crew was very knowledgable about marine life. We enjoyed ourselves and will most likely do it again later in the summer.

So much fun, we did it again 2 days later

While we didn't see any large whales, the crew made sure to find us a great little pod of Rizzo dolphins and a few bottlenoses - it was great fun! We went out again two days later, again no large whales, but common dolphins everywhere - it was a blast to watch those little guys swim along with the boat, so close they actually splashed you when they jumped from the water!

Best value in California

I loved this activity from start to finish. Even without seeing any whales as this was off season and I was warned of that, the boat ride up the coast was so enjoyable. We did end up tracking into several PODS of dolphins. Being from Florida and an avid boater- Still that was the most dolphins I have ever seen in my life. What FUN! Crew and office folks were very knowledgable and helpful. The boat ride alone was worth the money at a very reasonable price. THANKS !

Took my husband, 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter on this trip spontaneously and had a great time! We got to see a grey whale with a calf, and the captain navigated us through a large hunting pod of dolphins...over 100 dolphins! The kids were talking about this trip for days!
