The boat captain was very knowledgeable, and the boat was comfortable. We were lucky enough to see 2 blue whales and hundreds of dolphins. It was terrific!

There were four adults and five kids. Some seasickness but everyone really enjoyed the adventure. Some are still talking about this as a highlight of their trip to Southern CA. Thank you!

The skipper was very knowledgeable about all of the marine life. I learned quite a bit. The assistant was very helpful and enthusiastic. The skipper was bummed until 15 mins before our return he spotted a spout out in the distance and announced that a whale had been sighted. Everyone got excited, but we didn't see the whale for a while. We thought, "Yeah, he's just getting his passengers riled up". Then we saw this HUGE gray thing slowly break the surface of the water about 100 yards away. A real Blue Whale. The skipper spent a little extra time shadowing the whale before we finally returned. Everyone was very impressed...

The galley didn't have very many options (not like on the fishing boats at dana warf) and it is way over priced. Other than that, boat is smooth even on rough windy day and lots of room.

This was on of the highlights of our trip. We saw so many whales and got as close as you would ever want to be.

The Captain was a wealth of knowledge and his insight and commentary made it an experience rather than an event. Don't miss it, but take sea sick pills if you get sick as there were at least 12 people who got sea sick and missed everything :(

It was amazing all the dolphins and whales we saw. The crew were fantastic and helpful. I grew up in So. California but never did this adventure. We were visiting family and were looking for something different to do and this was it. Would highly recommend!

Saw a majestic gray whale and numerous beautiful dolphins. It was peaceful to be on the water. The captain worked hard to find and follow the whale. Staff was friendly.

Great for locals and visitors!

Our family from NYC came for a visit and chose to go whale watching over a trip to Sea World. We were all thrilled! We had an incredible time! The captain and crew were teriffic and really engaging. Not only did we all learn a lot, we were lucky enough to observe Blue Whales (up-close) and Common Dolphins in their natural environment. Captivating. Seriously.

The crew was tracking several whales at the same time and extended our cruise by at least 15 minutes (at no charge) so we could all observe a bit longer. I would definitely do it again and highly recommend to locals and visitors.

We saw more than expected!

We saw more than 20 dolphin right up to and under the boat. We had two whales that surfaces half a dozen times each and our captain was very aware of giving the whales space but positioning the boat for us to see the whales in detail. Great trip and will certainly go again if we have the chance.
