Tuesday Whale Watching
Tue, Feb 19, 08   10:00 AM stevenspence Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
I'd recomend the Tuesday half price special as the boat had maybe 40 people on it. Our Feb 19th scheduled 10:00 am departure actually left about 10:10, perhaps they were waiting to see if anyone else would show up. They ask you to be dockside a 1/2 hour before the scheduled departure, and free parking is more than adequate. The staff on the boat was friendly and talked about the marine life we happened to see. The trip lasted about 1:45 long and was an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. This is my third whale watching trip and I've yet to see a whale but did see many dolphin and sea lions. The company offers a guarrantee that if you don't see any dolphins or whales you'll get another trip voucher ... trust me, you'll always see dolphins, probably not whales but always dolphins! There is an indoor galley with seating on board in case your hungry or thirsty and I noted that they sell beer and "adult beverages" too. There are resrooms onboard. I would definitly bring a wind breaker or coat with a hood especially if you plan to travel during the winter months and want to watch from the bow (front) of the boat. Camera's are a must and having a pair of binoculars would be a bonus. If you liked the trip, have a couple of dollars handy since they put a "tip" jar next to where you exit the boat. If you've never done something like this and will not be too disapointed if you don't see an actual whale then I say go for it and enjoy the views, atmosphere and ride. I plan on going again sometime in the future since I live locally. Who knows, maybe the fouth time will be the charm to see whales.

The day was beautiful, and the trip to watch whales was perfect. The captain offered very informative and detail narration about the whales, making the trip that much more enjoyable.

Somewhat Disappointing

We didn't see any whales, which isn't the sole reason for the disappointment (I understand that there has to be luck involved). What I was really disappointed about was the the crew provided no commentary throughout the two hour cruise, except for some comments regarding the sighting of several dolphins towards the end of the excursion. It would have been nice if the crew provided some information on whales in general and perhaps some stories on prior sightings, etc. They all looked bored with their jobs.

Always a joy.....

I've been on this tour before and had a great time. The first time we saw no whales, in fact you can't count on seeing whales. Often you do see them, but not always. This time we saw a gray whale and a huge pod of dolphins. It was magical. No matter what sea life you are fortunate enough to see, this is a great experience and a wonderful way to get another perspective on the area.

Just didn't see any whales! Saw dolphins.

The organization and process of ticketing, boarding, and disembarking was great. The crew was nice and they tried hard to find some whales in the two hour cruise. We spotted some riso dolphins near the end of the cruise and got up close for some good pictures of them. The ship was clean and comfortable. They did give us a $5 discount on fishing or whale watching later on.

No whales...

The ride was fine... we saw a few dolphins but it was a pretty boring trip. Two hours seemed like too long to be on such rough water and not see any whales... probably wouldn't go again :(
