It was a beautiful day and my group of 15 people, including children, really enjoyed it! We saw a mother gray whale and her calf playing in the coves close to shore. We saw 3 schools of dolphins that were right next to the ship! The guide was very informative and we learned a lot about the life of a gray whale and the different kind of dolphins that were off the shores of California. The boat was clean and comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip!

The crew was very nice! The captain was very knowledgable about the animals we encountered. He was very persistent, and he really wanted us to see a whale. We did see a grey whale during our final moments in the voyage. We came across a giant pod of common dolphins and that was amazing. Overall a great experience, highly recommend!

Don't forget the sunblock and sweater (trust me you'll need it)

Was a good day for a boat ride; saw one whale and her calf and lots of dolphins. Only bad thing I can say is that the 2:00 trip actually left at 2:15 and we were back at the dock a few minutes before 4:00. It wasn't a two hour trip.

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.
