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.

We had a great time. It was so neat to see all the sea lions, dolphins, and whales. The crew was so nice and very knowledgeable. Worth every penny and made lifetime memories.

Very enjoyable and educational outing. The captains explanations and additional commentary were well worth it. I would like to point out for future customers that there are many discount deals available, including free trips on your birthday and 40% off if you use them to go to Catalina prevously.

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!

Saw one gray whale at a distance but the best part was when we in the middle of a large pod ( estimated at 500) dolphins. They put on a show! Mamas with their babies jumping and some dancing backwards on their tails. The captain was informative and friendly. Great fun!

Great knowledge of whale's behaviour
Sun, Jan 12, 14   12:00 PM jmok007 Male Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
More than 5 whale sightings and 3 tail showings in a 2 hour trip. ended with dolphins dancing around our boat and sighting of a sunfish. Very good trip with kudos to the knowledge of the captain in predicting whale behaviors. However, not recommended for kids under 4 as they are unlikely to experience anything.
