2 Whales from 500 yards away

When I first arrived, I was told I could not board until I paid more money. Huh! We already have a contract/ticket for this price. They said the coupon used was not valid on this voyage. (How convenient!) Your website accepted the coupon and issued the ticket, right? Excuses!--none valid!

The only thing to see on this trip was people vomiting(at least 12) And a lot of people pissed that they had to pay extra for no reason. I saw 2 whales(one from 500 yards away, and one from 1000 yards away.) I saw about 10 dolphins and half a dozen sea lions on a buoy. Not worth the price!

We had a great day. We didn't see any whales but our captain followed a pod of dolphins and gave us some great information! We continued the hunt for whales but while there wasn't a single one for us to observe, the ship and crew were great!

Great trip. The kids loved seeing all the dolphins but were a bit disappointed in not seeing any whales. We were told it's not a good time for the whale watching once we were already on the catamaran. I think that disclaimer should be announced before purchase.

This was a short excursion on our way from San Jose to Tucson to take my youngest daughter to college, UA. We were joined by my other daughter, age 21. I cannot tell you how refreshing and exciting this was for all of us. Thank you for a lovely tour.

A Most Enjoyable Morning

We took the early tour, the first of the day. It was already sunny, clear and warm. They didn't over-crowd the boat so everyone could stand near the side. Operators found a pod of three whales right away, and they positioned the boat so that we could all see. Since the whales are migrating, we did not see any actually breach, but we were close enough to see them swim to surface, blow air and submerge, sometimes showing their tail fins. The ocean was not choppy, so there was no risk of sea sickness. When the first group moved on, we went back and observed another group of whales. So there was plenty to see, the day was beautiful, the boat was not too crowded and the operators kept us comfortable. We had a very good time.

See above - we did see Dolphins & Sea Lions. Had 2 adults and 7 and 9 year old girls. Is there anyway of predicting whales will show up?
