Great Fathers Day outing

We took 3 generations (ages 2 to 64) for the 2 hour evening whale watching adventure. Saw LOTS of whales, dolphins, and sea birds. Our 6 year old was really engaged in the whole event. Her comment: "Grandma, this is even better than a documentary!!" The 2 and 4 year olds enjoyed going up and down the stairs into the galley area, and loved watching the dolphins. They had trouble seeing the whales, as they were farther away and by the time someone spotted one and pointed it out, it had gone back underwater again. The older generations had as much fun watching the kids as we did watching the sea creatures. The captain was great with the commentary, very knowledgeable and interesting. Altogether a 5 star experience. Highly recommend it!

We saw and followed a whale and saw it surface 3 or 4 times. About 15 dolphins followed close to the boat on the way back. This was a fun and safe trip. The boat was very stable in the water. There was also a sheltered area on the boat in case you hit cold. Also hamburgers and hotdogs cooked to order on board. You will have fun!

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.

An awesome time for ocean lovers.

The trip was wonderful. I fully enjoyed myself as did my husband. We saw a few pods of dolphins on our trip and got some amazing shots. The trip wasn't too long nor too short. If you enjoy being on the water, you'll enjoy this trip.

We went with our niece and nephew and they didn't seem to enjoy the trip as much. It's not really interactive and if you don't bring something to keep small children occupied, they may be bored within the first half hour.

The only thing I feel I should caution about is that there is VERY limited seating. If you don't feel like you can stand for 2 hours or sit on the floor when you need a break, I wouldn't recommend it as the seats go quickly.

The tour guides were great at letting us know where and what we were seeing. I wish it was just longer.
