Did not see any whales

I had the feeling that we were not looking very hard to find whales. It seems that the captain was happy to show us dolphins, we were not.

you should be a little more honest about the chances of seeing either dolfins or whales.

This tour was great! The tour guide was patient, informative, and fun and he definitely knew where to look! I would highly recommend this activity to anyone!

On the basis of earlier reviews, we expected to see quite a few animals but in the event all we saw after one and a half hour were some common dolfins.Clearly, this is not a good season to go on this tour.

Excellent information and knowledge of crew

Saw a Blue Whale, lost of Dolphins and Californian Sealions. In summer this was more than could be expected. The dolphins in particular were spectacular, jumping and playing close to the boat.

The boat was old, hardly any passangers.

Only found out there that the whale watching season was over.

Website of whale watching company is misleading.

Captain did not say anything that he will making an effort to spot whales, in contrast with another whalewatching experience from Monterey Bay last year.

There the captain and staff was zigzagging the area for us, and made an honest effort that we get our money's worth.

No whales there either, but at least we knew that everything was done what humanly possible.

It would have been much better to buy the ticket on site, that way I could have used the local coupons for discounts.

Since I preapid the tour, that option was lost.

Overall the experience was very negative. Cannot recommend it to anybody.

Received $10.00 discount for future trips, which I will not use, since I am a tourist from Canada, and will not come back to this area anytime soon.

A little disappointing

Done this cruise many times and have always had a great time. This time the boat was small with no upper seating this ment we had to sit down below (which we did not want to do) or stand for 2 hours. Although we are in our 80's we are very active but standing in a moving boat for 2hrs is not pleasurable. We will think twice before doing it again
