Whales sighted!
Wed, Jul 15  2:00 PM ritabennett Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified Unspecified
A perfect day to be on the water. Large pods of Dolphins played around our boat showing off their beautiful swimming skills. Then, 2 whales stayed on the surface for us to admire for over 20 minutes. Observed the adorable sea lions sunning themselves on a buoy and then home. A great rip for my out of town guests. The only down side was the boat. I expected us to be on the Dana Pride, the larger, newer boat but when we arrived was told we had been switched to the older, smaller Clemente. I was concerned because one of my guests becomes sea sick and resented not being informed of the change in time to change our reservation. We went anyway and, fortunately, all had a great time.

The trip was nice, relaxing, beautiful scenery. We saw a few brief glimpses of whales but it wasn't due to lack of effort on the captain's part.

I think the Captain was great, very knowledgeable and offered great insights. I was disappointed though that we didn't see as much as I would have liked (3 grey whale, the way it was advertised is that there are huge sightings of marine life every day). I understand that this is out of your control. I was very grateful that there were fewer people on the tour though and it wasn't congested because it makes it so difficult to really see with congestion onboard. I was pleased to get a 50% discount and will come again.

Our trip was wonderful! Our Captain very informative with knowledge about sea lions, dolphins and whales. We saw sea lions, dolphins and several whales. He drove a long way to ensure we saw a pod of whales. Very exciting for all on board!

Boring

I was very excited to see many whales since this has been a very rich season of whale sightings. We saw a few dolphins around the boat as we were leaving which was great. Then the search for whales... for a long time. We saw two or three whales, but no breaching or anything exciting. We could barely make out their bodies as they were gliding in the water. Mostly just beautiful views of the coastline, where I live in Laguna. Also, the constant talking of the person guiding us got annoying after awhile. It was difficult to hear him clearly, and it mostly seemed like a distraction from our not seeing many whales or anything worthwhile. I wouldn't recommend this trip. Sorry.

The trip was really good. The crew is always there to help. I'd recommend easily for anyone that wants a sunset in the sea with dolphins and whales.

It might be a good trip for kids also, the whole family would enjoy and take amazing pics.

Great job guys!

It was a beautiful relaxing day and worth the money and time. We saw few grey whales and some were so close you would hear them as they would come to surface. The ride was great too and tour guide was very informative. I love the ocean and this is a very fun activity that allows you into these beutiful mammals environment. Just loved it and will go back again.

Incredible! Fantastic! Unforgettable!

I chose to go on the 8 hour tour because I am an avid whale watcher and have and going for 30 years.

I have always had pleasurable experiences on the four hour tours, but the 8 hour tour was absolutely incredible. Within 20 minutes we had already discovered a pod of grey whales. The whales were very active and everybody was able to get fantastic photographs. All in all we saw 45 gray whales, over 200 dolphin ( Bottlenose, Common Long Beak, and Rizzos...) We also saw a multitude of sea lions, posing harbor seals and a bald eagle when we got to Catalina...The captain was fantastic and the crew was wonderful! The food was yummy.

Truly, the boat is just a dream to be on!

best whale watch experience ever... trip of a lifetime!!!

Highly, highly, highly, highly, highly recommend!!!

I believe that you too will have the trip of a lifetime.
