Do not miss a chance to go on this wonderful tour. My wife got a little seasick and they were so attentive and kind. We did get a discount online which help with the price. It was a beautiful day, we saw a beautiful way out, and had a great time.

The guides were so knowledgable and took great care as to not upset or disturb the marine life that we encountered. The boat was orderly and AWESOME. Great galley and the prices were beyond decent.

Not too many whales up close, but seeing all the Dolphins was fantastic! The captains were friendly and made sure we got the most of our experience.

Dolphins steal the show
Sat, Apr 23  12:00 PM dodeedo68 Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
We saw a mother and baby grey whale right after leaving the harbor. Then we went out a ways to see hundreds (maybe thousands) of dolphins put on an amazing show. Lots of positives: 1) easy parking (awesome), 2) the cruise started and finished on time, 3) not too crowded (even on a Saturday at noon in April), 4) plenty of spots for viewing 5) boat was clean (never used the restroom) 6) food and beverages available 7) we saw whales! A few negatives: 1) despite prepaying and reserving tickets, we still had to wait in line to "check-in" for 15-20 minutes - luckily we arrived an hour early, 2) the captain talked too much for my liking - it really disrupted the ability to enjoy the moment. They had a naturalist on board who walked around - I think the captain should leave the details up to the naturalist - just tell us where to look.

Not really what we had hoped for
Sat, Apr 23  6:30 AM barmawi Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
This trip was unfortunately in poor weather conditions, mainly rough seas. Not the crew's fault but made for a quite uncomfortable outing. The boat was rocking so bad in the waves that many of the anglers were throwing up over the sides, including me and one of my friends. We had no luck catching fish even though we moved from one spot to the other, don't know if the weather had anything to do with it or we were just unlucky. I have to say the crew was extremely helpful and polite and did everything they could to make our trip pleasant. Maybe next time we'll have better luck.

Not only did we see many whales, but the staff was really cool and very informative. Lots of beverages, including alcohol for the adults, as well as snacks. I would definitely recommend to everyone of all ages to go on this tour. We can't wait to go back!

Awesome afternoon

Awesome afternoon, We had the best experience on this whale watching trip and would absolutely do it again. There were lots and lots of whales and reaching babies. The photography was so much fun on this trip. And the price is very very reasonable.

We saw a calf/cow Gray Whales within 15 minutes. We followed them for a while. It was so enjoyable to be out there on the boat and the captain and crew were so knowledgeable. We will definitely go again.

The guide provided lots of information about migrating whales off the coast of Southern California. Had a chance to see a mother and baby whale and several other single whale sightings.
