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!

Gray whales & a megapod of dolphins

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.

The trip was informative, successful in that we saw whales up close and the boat was comfortable and stable. We loved the whole experience.

We saw a California Gray Whale from up close. Wow!! The highlight was the hundreds of common dolphins swimming and jumping around the boat. This trip is a must do while in Southern California!

Great experience

Very nice facility, easy check in and a nice boat. Crew was great and the captain was very personable and informative while we were out. The coast is beautiful and well worth the trip just by itself. Seeing wildlife was great. We saw a whale and some very acrobatic dolphins. I learned a lot on the trip and would highly recommend.

Beautiful ride down the shore

I would recommend this activity as you get a beautiful ride down the shore and get to see lots of dolphins and sea otters! I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see a whale but understand you have no control over that however definitely worth the trip.
