Hundreds Dolphins, no whales
Sun, Mar 23, 08   10:00 AM irenersx Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
We took the 10:00 am group on 3/23, it was a sunny day but no whales were spotted.

I read the review and heard that the crew was funny.

I personally didn’t think they were that fun. They didn’t give us much of a briefing as to what we would see for the trip.

The boat and ppl on it were quiet for the first hour, and the captain kept searching for the whales.

I hoped that he could give us some introduction in the beginning.

After around an hour and a half later, we saw a lot of common dolphins. Hundreds of them were swimming next to the boat.

The captain did a good job of explaining the dolphins, and overall it was a pleasant experience.

I will consider coming back in October, and hopefully I won’t be disappointed again.

I will be looking forward to the Blue Whale then

Very Enjoyable and Memorable

We saw one Gray Whale with her calf and followed them for about 20 minutes. We really had to strain to get a good look (there are laws that keep the boats from getting too close?). Very educational but not too much blah-blah. The ride was great...spectacular views and relaxing! Take dramamine 1 hour before to ensure enjoyment. Awesome staff and reasonably priced yummy snacks.

That was more than we expected. We saw hundreds of Dophins and two grey Whales.

My husband and I had a fun time on our cruise. the captain took us and the rest of the crew out to where dolphins were feeding, there were alot of dolphins. It was alot of fun watching them swim and jump and cross paths with each other. It made for a very satisfied time. Great job!!!! Thank you so much. We intend to bring our granddaughters out on a whale watching cruise this summer. Hopefully we will see dolphins again in those numbers. (We did see whales too!! Very close up).

The dolphin were a highlight.

Although we have lived here 10+ years, we have never gone whale watching before. The staff was friendly and we had a great time. We plan on going again.

don't forget the dramamine!
Fri, Mar 21, 08   12:00 PM myan23 Female 30-39 Local Family Without Children
we followed 2 whales, which was really cool. and we saw a bunch of dolphins. i didn't like how the boat was right on top of the dolphins, literally. they claim it doesn't hurt them, but it didn't seem right to do it. other than that, the crew was professional. my only problem was i didn't take dramamine early enough and got seriously sea sick! anyone prone to motion sickness, be sure to take something well before hand. my husband had a great time while i was nauseous for 2 hours!!

No Whales but beautiful cruise
Tue, Mar 18, 08   4:00 PM marionmeeker Female 40-49 Local Group of Friends
We did not get to see any whales, just three dolphins. But the company gave us our tickets back and they are now good to be used again. Hopefully we will get to see a little more next time. It was still a nice cruise and the crew is very nice and helpful too.

Fun but no whales for us
Tue, Mar 18, 08   2:00 PM mochakimm Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
My children and I had a lot of fun on the cruise. We were initially very excited because we heard that the earlier cruises had spotted whales, so we thought we had a good chance. It was not to be; but, there was a pod of dolphins that were a lot of fun. The kids and I enjoyed the beautiful weather and being out on the water.

Good Cruise no whales
Tue, Mar 18, 08   2:00 PM JSROBERTTHIB Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We enjoyed the cruise as it was a beautiful day. We were disappointed that we

did not see any whales but we did see seals and dolphins. We feel we might have

been better to take a morning cruise rather than the 2 p.m. cruise. The company was

very generous in allowing people to stay on board for a second cruise to see if that

cruise would see any whales. Earlier cruises that day saw whales.

No Whales
Tue, Mar 18, 08   2:00 PM mjrmunich Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
It was unfortunate that although we had spectacularly blue skies, plus an enthusiastic group of strangers who became friends on board, we saw not one wee bit of the many whales who we heard were traveling through the area. At the very end we saw a small school of playful dolphins who were fun & fast to watch but they were not the gray whales we'd been hoping to see.

It was particularly upsetting that the people on the 12 noon cruise had seen whales and we had not AND that there was no offer of a ticket for another day, because, if you see at least dolphins, although this is a whale watching cruise, then it counts as having seen "something".

It was nice to be outside on the water, but it was not what we paid for.

wonderful whale watching

This was a fantastic trip. The boat was beautiful and comfortable and the crew was very professional and knowledgable. We saw 6 whales with the first one spotted within 5 minutes of leaving the dock. A great time was had by all!

It exceeded our expections

Our group consisted of my parents and my aunt, from San Antonio, TX, and I, I currently live in Mission Viejo, CA. We were hoping to see a whale. Were very excited because we saw several whales and I got a great picture of one whale tail flipping out of the water. We have raved to everyone.

We were with the group that had 4 whales in sight!
Tue, Mar 18, 08   10:00 AM Besrock Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was a last minute excursion for us, and are we glad we went!!! We had a group of 4 whales that we were along side of for about an hour. We had to leave them because our time was up!! The crew did a great job alerting us from above when the whales were going to surface, so we were able to get some great pictures/video! The crew seemed as excited as we were. We had a great time and will remember and recommend this experience. To top it off, our son filled out the raffle card and won 2 free return passes, so we will definitely be back or share this experience with someone else!
