Fun and relaxing

We didn't see any whales but not for lack of trying. The boat captains did all they could but it just wasn't meant to be. We did see two different species of dolphins and one got very close to the boat. It was a relaxing journey with lovely weather and nice way to see the California coast.

Great deal...fun for the whole family!

We went on the 8:00am/$10.00 deal. It was perfect! The water was very calm and friendly staff. Love that it had bathrooms and a snack bar on the boat. We didn't see any whales but saw a lot of dolphins that were very close to the boat and were putting on a show for us. You can't guarantee you'll see whales....hey, it's nature! ..but definitely worth our money. We had our 6 year old daughter with us, and she didn't get sea sick at all. Pack a snak if you like...and bring something to keep your kids occupied in case they lose interest. We'd do it again!

Great Show of Dolphins but no Sign of Whales

The boat crew was courteous and we left and arrived back on time. The bathrooms and boat were clean. Our voyage wasn't overcrowded so we had room to move in case our side of the boat was missing the action. The dolphins we saw up close and personal and stayed with them for a substantial amount of time. The only let down: We didn't see whales or any clues they were nearby.

WOW-we saw humpbacks!

Smooth and comfortable boat ride. Our leaders went the extra mile for us and took us out 7 miles where we were awed by the antics of two humpback whales right by our boat. Neat thing was, the crew were just as excited as we were! Rare sight to see these whales--sometimes they are only viewed 4-5 times a season. Would do this again in a heartbeat.

The tour guides were great at letting us know where and what we were seeing. I wish it was just longer.

Handicap assistance zilch

I emailed the company to ask about wheelchair access prior to purchasing tickets. They responded quickly and were helpful, suggesting specific sailings that would be best to take on the date I selected. The times worked into our schedule. But, upon check in and the entire sailing there was no assistance with boarding, and simple things like where the rest room, where the best location for us to sit was, and getting on and off with grace. The cruise was glorious, even though we didn't see whales, only dolphins. Oh, they didn't give everyone in our party a coupon to return with 50 off either. Only gave it to 3 out of 5. Even after I asked. That sucked.

Relaxing Day At Sea

This was a nice trip with clean, safe and professional accomodations. However, we did not see any whales so was really disappointed. Whenever these trips promise to see whales there is an even bigger disappointment if none. We saw dolphins and many birds so all was not lost! The Captain was friendly and informative, I would have liked him to speak more on the wildlife as he seemed to know alot and was quite interesting.
