Great Day!

The weather was beautiful and our daughter's first time whale watching (3). Unfortunately we didn't see any whales however we saw a massive pod of dolphins. We spent about 40 minutes with them and have awesome pictures. The boat had a group of school children who were absolutely delighted. The staff was informative and would do the trip again.

Between whale watching season......

Went whale watching between seasons so expectations for seeing a whale were not high so of course did not see a whale. The captain of the boat spotted a large pod of dolphins and did a good job keeping the group entertained by traveling with the pod for about 45 minutes. Captain provided good commentary as we "mingled" with the dolphins. Will go back during season to see whales.

The boat trip was fun for all 8 of us even though the weather was very cold. We only saw a few dolphins but everyone enjoyed the day. Our 5 year old and 10 year old grandchildren enjoyed doing something different and had lots of fun checking out the hot chocolate and chips, We all plan to go again. Thanks for making our trip fun.

Awesome experience! We loved it!

We had an incredible experience on this whale watch excursion. We were able to see a mother grey whale with her calf, sea lions, and drove right through a pod of 100 bottle nosed dolphin. It was really cool! My kids loved it. The guide was very enthusiastic. He did say we were lucky. The day before they had to give three groups rain checks because they didn't see anything. I would recommend going on the earliest trip so that you could go again the same day if you don't see any whales or dolphin. It was a bit windy. We were glad we had jackets. We will definitely do it again.

We really enjoyed our tour. We were a little disappointed that we didn't see any whales like we did two years ago. However, the dolphin were really neat and came right up to the boat. Dress warmly. Even though the temperature was nice, we were cold on the boat.

One of the most fantastic things I've done

Had such a grand time that after my two hour cruise I went back to the office and asked how soon I could get back on. Gave her my discount ticket I had just received. Within minutes was on a different boat and enjoyed it even more. Try to get a spot in front. We saw dolphins playing. Spotted a dozen whales at different times. On both trips. I want to go again and take my grandkids. I have another discount ticket, so i will be going again myself. It's relaxing

Plenty of dolphins.... but no whales! However, we were offered a ticket for another try, but unfortunately, couldn't make that date. We thought that was very fair!

Great tour company. Crew was very friendly and professional. Located a group of 5-7 California Grey Whales within 20 minutes of leaving port and followed them for the next hour. Also saw sea lions and a group of playful dauphins.

Had a great time on the boat with my husband children. Unfortunately we didn't see any whales or dolphins, but they were so kind enough to give us a raincheck to come back! Will definately be going back and telling my family and friends about it!!
