It was cold and windy, saw quite a few dolphins but no whales. We were disappointed as we had family from Europe and Chicago area with us.

Mixed Feelings

Was there with another couple for a double date on valentines! Was super excited because all the reports showed they saw whales that week. We didn't see any whales, but supposedly both tours before us did. The site has a guarantee..and I quote literally from their website.... "Remember that sightings are guaranteed! If you don't see A GOOD SHOWING of whales or dolphin, you will get your ticket back and are invited to come out again with us!" Well we only saw dolphins for approx. 5 maybe 10 minutes and not even that many. What do they consider "A good showing" because being from California I see dolphins all the time and have def. seen a better showing! So when the tour is finally over, my group goes to the office to find out about this guarantee and the man behind the counter was clueless! We asked him and he told us and I quote "Well you saw dolphins for 15 minutes and nobody but you four are complaining." Really? It was def. not 15 minutes and nothing I would consider a "Good showing." I would have def. came back if they kept up their end of the bargain, but now I'm not so sure due to the employees rudeness and lack of customer service. Would it be that hard to compensate four people and give them good customer service who would then probably return and give great reviews and recommendations? My husband is a whale lover so if we liked the trip we would totally have returned many more times. Other then that, the reason I am neutral is the cruise and boat were nice.

We saw dolphin and whales and most appreciated both the information from the crew and the one crew member who came around to answer questions.

We had a group of 10 people from age 12 to 90 and we all had a fantastic time. Mom (90) was completely safe with her walker and had no trouble boarding or boating, which was my concern. We all got to see the grey whales, the sun was out, the ocean was quite calm, and it was a great day! An.d they gave us 50% coupons off the next time if we choose to come back again, which I think I will! Big thumbs up and you'd better make those reservations and GO

Wonderful day on the ocean, we could see Palos Verdes Penninsula to the north and Catalina was crystal clear! Beautiful scenic trip up to Laguna Beach, spotted one gray whale and pods of "rare" white sided dolphins. The boat was clean, the staff very helpful and the scenic cruise up the coast was wonderful. It was fun to see my childhood beach in Laguna from the "ocean" view. GREAT time had by all and look forward to doing it again ASAP. Thank you all so much!!

Great family fun but we didn't see a whale!

But we saw many playful dolphins and sea lions.

The staff is very knowledgeable about sea life.
