Our captain and crew worked hard to get us in position to see 2 gray whales. One whale did a 3/4 jump up out of the water. Also saw many common dolphin and sea lions. Captain was very informative about the whales and dolphin we saw. Great trip, Thank You Mike from York, PA

Spectacular day

This was just a wonderful experience. The weather was lovely with blue skies and cool temperatures. The boat ride was pretty smooth. We saw lots of dolphins and several seals. I was beginning to wonder if we were going to see any whales when the captain asked us to hold on because he was going to pick up speed. About ten minutes later he announced that a pair of grey whales had been spotted in the area we were now cruising. And about a minute later we were treated to the presence of whales. We cruised along with them for what seemed like a long time, and just as we're were about to leave one of them breeched, not once , but three or four times. It was marvelous. This is something we will do again. Bring warm clothing and sun tan lotion!

Great time on the ocean

went with 8 family members and everyone enjoyed being out on the ocean. at first all we saw was lots of dolphin but toward the end of our tour the Captain spotted some gray whales and followed them north along the coastline. we were late getting back but nobody cared because we were enjoying the whales and dolphins. the Captain was very informative. Loved it!

When it shines, it soars

This is an excellent excursion when there are whales; it's fun and a good boat ride when there are not. But if you are expecting whales you should contact them ahead of time to find out what is in season and how often they are being sighted. The captain/guide on our trip was extraordinary -- insightful and entertaining. I was concerned that we departed 20 minutes late -- though some of this time was made up on the back end of the trip. My only reason for not giving it a 5-star rating is that you might not see whales -- and for a trip billed as WHALE WATCHING that's a caveat emptor.

Not What I Hoped For

I know it's not possible to guarantee whale sightings, and the captain did follow one whale because that's all that was in the area, but it was very hard to see the whale with all the other people standing by the edge of the boat. Other small boats in the area were spooking that whale so he barely showed, and certainly didn't show his tail. Also, the company switched me to a different time and different boat a few hours before the scheduled trip, after I paid to go out on the better trip, on the Catamaran. That was disappointing. Not sure if I would go with this company for future whale watching trips.

Fun, Funny & Amazing

My husband took me on this trip for my birthday and it was every thing we'd hoped for and more. We saw hundreds of dolphins and the whales that decided to visit were fun to watch. Whomever was our "captain" on the boat that day was entertaining and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this adventure. The food/drinks that were available were top notch. Never skimped on the alcohol in the bloody marys either which was a plus since it was my birthday. I would recommend this in a heartbeat!

our trip did not see any whales, morning. trip did. the crew took was good and we saw sea lions sleeping on the buoys and dolphins performing around the ship. the dolphins made up for no whales. understand the whale migration is almost over at time of year we went. we would do it again

Gray whales & a megapod of dolphins
Sat, Feb 1, 14   2:30 PM judithLV Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
I have never seen so many dolphins together at one time; hundreds leaping and cavorting.

The whales (3) showed their tails. Sun was shining, it was a great 2 hours.
