Experience varies by day

Since the whales come and go as they please, you may see many, few, or no whales at all. We were lucky enough to see a handful of blue whales, and that was good enough for us, but of course we wish we could have seen more, including dolphins which others on the boat said they had seen before. You're out on the water for around two hours, and the vast majority of that time is spent waiting, with brief periods of seeing whales, but it is pretty exciting during that time.

Fantastic day out

Whale watching with your company had been highly recommended to me by a friend who had been out previously. I would like to say that I had an amazing time with you and that the photo opportunties were wonderful - I will also recommend you to friends visiting the area. The number of people on the boat was just right, not too crowded, the commentary was interesting and informative.

(But I must just say that parking the car was a bit of a nightmare!)

I have been wanting to do this for many years and finally had the chance to go,,,,I loved the experience! The boat ride was great, even though I was a bit frightened of getting sea sick. We decided to get some Dramamine just incase and the ride was just fine, it worked ,,lol! Id would suggest this to all , its worth the $ to see at least once. We saw about three differnt whales and lots of dolphins. I would say its a MUST at least once!

Incredible experience to see blue whales! Weather wasn't perfect but who cares. Great idea for out of state visitors - beats the heck out of a drive to Los Angeles.

Lots of fun but overbooked

We had a great time but probably won't go again on the 25 dollar evening. Shoulder to shoulder people. Too crowded. I suggest you have 25% percent less people. Or have limits. We did catch fish though.

Dolphin watching was much more fun.

Last time, we could watch only dolphins, and this time, it was only whales. Compare these two experiences, I think dolphin watching was far much more fun.

Phenomenal activity - A MUST DO!!!

The excursion was fabulous, the boat captain/personnel were very knowledgable and friendly. Seeing the whales and their calves were amazing. Also as an extra treat, we came upon a Great White Shark (about 12 feet long) that surfaces and we were able to put it right up to the boat for all to see. The kids stated that this trip was a highlight of our vacation.

An amazing adventure.
Tue, Jul 26, 11   5:00 PM staceyrw81 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The boat was clean. The crew was very nice and very knowledgeable. We saw 2 different groups of blue whales, a great white shark, and sea lions. We looked for dolphins, but did not find them. The great white shark was playing with the boat. At one point he came straight at us. It was amazing. I brought my parents (both 74) and they were in awe. Was a wonderful experience for them. My mom's only regret was that my sister was not with us to enjoy the experience. I would highly recommend this adventure as well as this crew to everyone I know.

What a beautiful afternoon. Our captain was very descriptive about what we were going to see and a few moments later there they are 2 amazing blue whales! Everyone in my group had huge smiles on their faces as we kept track of the minutes waiting for the whales to resurface. Great pleasure to watch these amazing animals. We had lots of room to move about the boat and stand at the rail to get the closest look at the whales. We also kept track with a pod of swift moving dolphins and then we ended our trip by looking at the sea lions in the area.

Such a memorable experience and a fun way to see a little more detail about California. My 10 and 12 year old and their 70 yr old Nana loved their adventure and we all agreed to do this tour again. Thank you.

This was a very well organized trip where we were looked after by two very knowledgable chaps. It was friendly, good value and the sights were fantastic.

We were very lucky we saw dolphins and 4 blue whales at close quarters. On the return to the harbour we took in the basking sea lions.

WOW what a day!

GREAT EXPERIENCE!!! - WHALES!!!

This was the highlight of my family vacation to sothern California! We had a day off from a local theme park and I saw an advertisment for this cruise and convinced my family that we should try it. We had the best time. The crew seemed to know the waters well and were very personable. We were amazed by the hundreds of dolphins we saw and amazed at how close they came to the boat. We also saw several sea lions basking on a buoy near the end of the cruise. The best part was being able to see a pair of blue whales - a mother and her calf. We got close enough to hear them breathing! The crew knew the whales' behavior well enough that they could tell when the whales would come to the surface. One of the crew did say that the combination of beautiful weather, clear water, and the number of animals sighted made this particular trip in the top 5% of the cruises he had been on. We would recommend this cruise to anyone who wants to see the amazing sea life off the coast of California.
