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!

This "tour" exceeded all expectations. The crew was helpful, polite and patient. Have been on other whale watching vessels but they pale in comparison. Was not disappointed in the sightings and the pilot of the vessel knew exactly where to go for the ultimate experience. Also provided was overall education about whales, habitats, etc. That was quite enlightening and appreciated. Whales and dolphins were spectacular. Will definitely go again.

2 Gray Whales Spotted

We followed 2 gray whales for a long time and then we came up on a mega pod of dolphins which was equally exciting and even more entertaining. Our guide was very informative and enthusiastic. It was well worth the money for what we saw.

The captain of our cruise was OUTSTANDING!!!!!! Extremely knowledgeable about the marine life and enthusiastic about sharing that knowledge. Our whole family learned a ton because of him. We also were in the midst of a super pod of dolphins which is a sight I will never ever forget.

Great Cruise

We spotted two large gray whales right away and we followed them for almost half an hour. Then we were suddenly in the midst of hundreds of dolphins. They were leaping, swimming very close to our boat and surfing our wake. We also saw a group of sea lions squabbling over space on a buoy. Our captain was also a naturalist and provided a lot of interesting information. The other crew were friendly and helpful and the boat was clean and comfortable. Finally, with the limited number of passengers, I always had an unobstructed view right at the rail and I believe that everyone else did as well. This cruise will remain one of the highlights of my California visit.

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.

We didn't see any whales on the 2 hour cruise, just dolphins which I see from our shore in San Clemente year around. No mention was made of a free ticket to return if no whales had been sighted and I had been told that was part of the deal.

fantastic date

Not being able to get closer than 100ft of the great whales was a bit disappointing but we were surprised by dolphins swimming right underneath us! Definitely a great experience everyone should try. The ocean always has wonderful surprises.
