We saw a fin whale and hundreds of dolphins. The boat ride alone was worth it.

The Whales Were Hiding

We were disappointed that we did not see any whales, but we saw sea lions and bottlenose dolphins. The dolphins put on a real show for us, leaping out of the water and swimming close to the boat.

We saw 2 fin whales and a couple of grey whales, one of which breached several times. We all had a very memorable experience.

this might be the wrong time of year

the company gives out a chart that shows that most whales are seen in summer or late fall and we arrived at a slow period. the water was glassy and the trip was beautiful at sunset, when we saw more dolphins than the skipper had seen all day. the trip had been delayed by a previous client's fall, emt's, etc, and we missed a bit of the afternoon. the company gave us all 'whale checks' for a future trip. the company acted like real people, and that was great. even if you see no whales, and i had been hoping to see some seabirds that did not show up, but even so, it was a beautiful afternoon on the sea. try to get a boat that is not full, naturally.

Excellent Trip

The crew and captain were very polite and knowledgeable. The captain happened to spot some grey whales and headed toward them rather than going to a spot where there were already a lot of boats waiting for Fin whales to surface. We saw dolphins just after we left the harbor and they slowed the boat so we could get pictures and watch them. We were able to see 2 grey whales mating and were the only vessel out there. We spent probably a half hour watching and following them. A large pod of dolphins were in the area and we were also able to watch them. The captain also was very informative about the whales and dolphins which added a lot to the trip.

Captain explained grey whale migration habits, how they live, breed and their comparison to other whale family members. Sited two grey whales almost immediately out of the harbor! Beautiful day, great boat--very clean--and a good crowd on Valentine's Day--but not overcrowded.

It was a beautiful sunny day. During our two hour cruise we saw a whale and a large school of dolphins. For a while the dolphins ran alongside our boat. Crew were helpful and friendly. Lots of fun!

A thrilll of a lifetime

Had only a half day to fit one more activity in before flying home. Wanted to get out on the water and decided this was the way to go and possibly see a whale while out there. Our knowledgeable and entertaining Captain Jack knew exactly what he was doing. He seemed to have a sixth sense as to where the whale was going. Sure enough we were able to see a gray whale breach about 9 or 10 times in a very short time. What a thrill! It even brought a tear to my eye to see this whale playing in it's own habitat. A great memory I was able to share with my two grown daughters and my granddaughter. It was also fun to see the captain and crew get so excited along with the rest of the passengers. Thanks so much for a great day! Highly recommend.
