We went on a 2p and it was amazing! We spotted sea lions immediately, there was actually one in the harbor with the boats. Within about 20 mins, we saw a group of 3 Gray Whales! We followed that group for a good amount of time, then the captain spotted another group of 3 Gray Whales. We headed that way and followed the second group for a while! The whales surfaced frequently to use their blow holes but unfortunately didn't jump out of the water. We didn't get real close to the whales, but it was close enough to see them! As we were heading back in to the harbor, the captain spotted a pod of dolphins in the distance and we turned around and followed them for a while. This was the best part of the trip! There were hundreds of dolphins jumping all around the boat! They were so close you could almost touch them! It was a little chilly out on the water...be sure to take a jacket! The crew was great...highly recommend!

After waking up to an overcast day, our group had almost given up on going on a whale watching tour, but didn't give up and we were so glad we didnt. The boat was spacious, even having snacks and refreshments. We were able to follow three Grey Whales for quite some time. I enjoyed the Captain's informative commentary as well. Overall, we had a once in a lifetime experience we won't forget.

This cruise to watch whales and dolphins was amazing. Well run by the people on the boat, informative and so much fun. Amazing to see whales, dolphins and sea lions all in their natural environment. Both my daughter and I loved every minute. It felt at times like you could reach out and touch the Dolphins!!

My triplets flew to California to be with me for their Spring Break. We planned this trip well in advance and could not have been more pleased with the Whale Watching Tour that you provided us with. The pod of dolphins was simply amazing (I thought a pod would mean 5-6 dolphins, not HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of dolphins!!!) Then, viewing the two California Gray Whales and having one breech right in front of us was just breath-taking. Thank you for making my triplets' trip so wonderful!
