I TRY TO GO EVERY YEAR AND ALWAYS ENJOY IT. THE BOAT RIDE IS ENJOYABLE AND I HAVE NEVER FAILED TO SEE A WHALE THOUGH THIS YEAR IT DID TAKE A WHILE TO FIND ONE. WE FINALLY DID. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANYONE. THEY ARE A SIGHT TO SEE.

This was an incredible trip. We ended up in the middle of a pod of dophins. They were playing with the boat we were on. Jumping out of the water and swimming all around us. Absoulutly glorious. The captain kept us out there as long as he could, it was great! The captain and crew were very informative and accomodating. I would highly recommend this trip. I know we will be going again.

Copyright Society Enjoys the Whales

I am the Administrator for the Copyright Society of the USA. We recently have a meeting at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott. I located your information from their website and looked in to booking the tour for the group. In the past, most of tour had consisted of 10-15 people. I ended up with about 52 people on the tour and we lucked out since our group was the only group they enjoyed them selves even more. They had a fantastic time. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The Group enjoyed it so much I went back myself the next day.

The trip was pretty much like I expected it to be. As an avid outdoorsman I know that wild animals don't travel by a set schedule and their actions can be un-predictable.

I am sure many tourists expect to see about 100 whales per trip, all with their flukes about 15 feet out of the water for 10 seconds each so cameras can be focused.

In a perfect world...right.

We saw whales, the crew was pleasant...we had a good time. We got a few good photos....the price was right.

All good stuff.

Thanks

I’ve been whale watching before – sometimes with sightings while other times without - none of those excursions can compare to what my boy and I experienced this past Sunday afternoon. While we didn’t see any whales, we did found a pod of dolphins! While it is difficult to tell just how many were in the pod, it seemed as if there were one THOUSAND or more! In fact, we were surrounded, on all sides, by dolphins leaping out of the water, racing the boat, and just having a good ‘ole time as dolphins are want to do. This experience was one of the incredible I’ve ever had and, without question, something that I will remember for many, many years.

What a Day!

The trip started on time, the crew were friendly and helpful, the day was beautiful, seas were clam, and the food was good (thank heavens that we don't ever get sea sick). We didn't get to see any whales but it's only the beginning of one season and the ending of another, but the Captain found a large pod of dolphins and took us to the center and we got to enjoy their play (sometimes right under the bow of the ship)...what a wonderful experience. The Captain also educated us about what we encountered along the way. Thanks much.

Greatly enjoyed this excursion. The crew were very knowledgable and interactive. No whales, but the dolphins were more than worth the trip.
