Had a great time with the family, the staff and crew where very friendly and informational. Can't wait to come back in September for blue whale watching. If you have never done this then it should be on your bucket list to do.

we had a great experience when traveling to Anahiem calif for some relaxation. Our children ages 10 and 5 had more fun spotting whales and dolphins then standing in line at Disneyland. Before we knew it 2 hours of whale watching were over and the kids were disappointed that it had to end. I would highly recommend this adventure to others as a must do while visiting the state in March.

Our captain was very informative and enthusiastic. You could tell he truly cared about the ocean and it's inhabitants. Moved the boat the minuted he could tell the mother whale was uncomfortable with our presence, unlike a few other boats that kept after her. A wonderful experience! Will for sure return for another trip.

The captain first told us when we got on the boat that only one whale was seen that afternoon. I was wondering whether we would see anything at all. Shortly into the trip, however, we ran into a large group of dolphins and they played in the wake of the boat! Right after that, a large fin whale was spotted north of us so we headed up to see him. He spouted a few times as we watched in awe. Right before we were going to turn in, the captain asked if anyone needed to be back on time. No one did, so he took us south to catch a pod of three grey whales migrating up the coast! Overall, it was a great experience and we were fortunate to see as much marine life as we did.

The captain and the crew were quite knowledgeable. The kids loved the swells so they loved the ride. We saw a pod of dolphins and I think 8 whales. It was a great experience for a first time ride!

I went with a couple of friends and the whole time we saw nothing. The weather was great so I didn't mind being at the sea for 2 hours.

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!
