Had a great time.
Fri, Feb 15, 08   12:00 PM CathyDecker Female 50-59 Local Unspecified
On our first trip out it was very windy and we saw absolutely nothing. But Dana Wharf whale watching gave us vouchers good for a year. We returned the next day to beautiful weather and we saw two whales and watched them for about 30 minutes. On our way back we found a huge pod of dolphins (over 100) and they were spectacular.

Great trip and very informative.

Not Worth It

We spent two hours on a boat to see barley anything. I understand that they cannot do anything about how many whales you see or where the whales will be, but all we saw was the top of a whale and then turned around and went home. It was not even close to worth the amount we paid. I'm surprised we didn't get a free voucher after we wasted two hours to see nothing. I definitely would not do that again.

Loved it!

I was super excited It was my first time fishing in the ocean and it was pretty cold, I would suggest waiting until it's a little warmer outside before heading out, but other than that it was a lot of fun! We caught about 7 fish, two of which we were able to take home and I left with a nice sun burn, don't forget to wear sunscreen!!

I planned for my boyfriend and I to go on the Valentine's day sunset tour. While we didn't see any whales, we did see sealions and seals and had a great time. The staff was great from checking in to seeing us off the boat. We are looking forward to going again!

Good experience

We had a good time. We didn't get to see any whales but saw plenty of dolphins and the crew made sure we had plenty of opportunities to take photographs. The crew also had cookies downstairs for Valentine's Day for free! Our day was windy, rainy and rough water but we enjoyed ourselves.

Wonderful Experience

The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable, the boat was clean and well maintained (especially the bathrooms which were spotless), and the experience was a total pleasure. We didn't see any whales, just a few dolphins and sea lions so everyone on the boat was given passes to come back for a free cruise. I would recommend this company to everybody I know.

Three of us went, the sea was calm, the weather was warm & we had a fantastic time. We saw four whales and a multitude of dolphins.

Highly recommended for any age group!

Two thumbs up
Mon, Feb 11, 08   10:00 AM 59classic Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This cruise far exceeded my expectations. The crew found 3 whales for us. I totally expected to not see any. I understand that boats have to keep a certain distance from the whales but we could plainly see them blow their water spouts and frequently lift their tails. It was awesome. Then they found a pod of dolphins and that was spectacular. Those dolphins put on a better show than you get at Sea World. My 10 year old and I both agree this cruise was the best part of the trip, and we had also done Disney and Sea World. lol The crew put themselves out to make sure you see something. And we personally got to see a lot of something! We will definetly do this again next time we are in the area.

We had so much fun!!
Sun, Feb 10, 08   2:00 PM LMulligan Female 40-49 Local Group of Friends
This was a GREAT trip!! We saw 4 whales and got a wonderful photo of a whale.

The staff was very knowledgeable and conversant in whale behavior. The guy that was the speaker missed his calling as a Whale docent for Sea World!!

I would recommend this trip to anyone and well worth the $29.00!!

Nice tour
Sat, Feb 9, 08   2:00 PM mauiellen Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
The boat ride was very nice even though we didn't see any whales or dolphins on the trip. They distributed passes for another trip. We are local so we are looking foward to doing it again. My only complaint was that they were unorganized with the loading. It was a nice day so we knew the boat would be pretty full. The people at the shop told us to line up early to get the one of the few seats & tables on the top of the boat. We lined up with other people about 30 minutes early but then other people started lining up on the other side and in front of the entrance right before we embarked. They tried to push ahead of the group who had waited. I think if they had a sign outside with a designated line up area it would help immensely.

A Beautiful Day
Sat, Feb 9, 08   12:00 PM sharonhumphr Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The sun was out after several rainy days and the sky was so blue and we wanted a day out. The boat ride was beautiful and calming and even though we didn't see any whales or dolphins we still loved the outing. The fact that we can go again when ever we are ready is a bonus. It was amazing to be on the ocean and be able to see snow capped mountains, sail boats and all the ocean has to offer. It was just a beautiful day and even the kids were not disappointed.

Copyright Society Enjoys the Whales
Fri, Feb 8, 08   4:00 PM AmyNickerson Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
I am the Administrator for the Copyright Society of the USA. We recently have a meeting at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott. I located your information from their website and looked in to booking the tour for the group. In the past, most of tour had consisted of 10-15 people. I ended up with about 52 people on the tour and we lucked out since our group was the only group they enjoyed them selves even more. They had a fantastic time. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The Group enjoyed it so much I went back myself the next day.
