Pretty good day
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

We were excited to be able to see 2 gray whales. The captain and crew were very knowledgeable and were able to get us in close for a look. After leaving the whales the captain indicated that we would go and find some other mammals (dolphins we assumed) but he simply took the boat back to the dock. This after telling my 9 year old that we would go find some dolphins... A few extra minutes and keeping a promise would have been nice...

Very pleasant time on the wwater

The boat was OK, but some chairs or places to sit on the deck would have been nice. We tried to sit downstairs but could not see through the windows and could not hear the loudspeaker. We enjoyed seeing a few sea lions and a pod of dolphins, but really disappointed not to see a whale. We had read in the promotion that this was an especially good time to see blue whates, but when checked in, we were told they hadn't seen a whale in a week. Crew was courteous, and we didn't have any problems with the tour.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Loved this trip, even though it was only 2 hours. Saw blue whales, fin whales, dolphins, and some sea lions. Was a lot of fun, had beautiful views of the Pacific, was exciting to try to spot animals and then race the boat over to where they were, etc. We really enjoyed this trip, although one of us did get seasick so if you have someone with a sensistive stomach this might not be the best trip for them as the ship & speeds make for a choppy, rocking ride sometimes! Otherwise, good price, a lot of fun, and a unique experience!

Great activity for out of town guests

We brought my parents who were visiting from out of state. They were able to board easily, have a nice seat for the two hours, see whales the entire time and enjoy the scenery. The captain spoke clearly and shared interesting facts, but didn't talk the whole time, which was really nice. I'll absolutely be back with more of our friends and family who visit!

Amazing day on the water!

Had some friends in from Iowa looking to escape the cold winter weather. Thought whale watching would be a great day trip. I honestly worried it wouldn't be worth the money, but I was happy to be proved wrong. We had a great time. Just being out on the water in calm seas and sunshine would have been worth the price of admission, but we got so much more. We saw hundreds of dolphins and then were lucky enough to find three grey whales traveling together. At one point they surfaced just 10 feet of the bow of the boat...Amazing!

Fun but should be called Dolphin Watching
Sun, Feb 22, 09   10:00 AM kimmyprice Female 20-29 Local Family Without Children
We took this trip in February during grey whale season. I like that the boat wasn't overcrowded (we could see a different company's boat leaving at the same time and they were far more crowded than we were), and I enjoyed the information from the captain over the speaker. He was very knowledgable. We saw a large pod of dolphins and it was great fun watching them play around the boat for a while. Then we headed over to a rock off of San Clemente with seals and sea lions on it, and that was fun too. But we didn't see any whales and it felt like that captain knew fairly early that we weren't going to see any so he just showed us the dolphins and seals, and he didn't bother going out where there may be whales.

Recording-breaking, once in a lifetime experience!

On March 16, we were honored to be a part of an extraordinary cruise. The captain and crew members repeated over and over again that in 40 years of being in this business they had never seen anything like it. Two 35-foot gray whales put on a show for us that lasted well over an hour. They played and showed off right alongside the boat, treating us to a fantastic, rarely seen experience. The crew was so excited and animated and they shared their enthusiasm and expertise with us, making this rewarding excursion even more interesting and delightful. It was absolutely remarkable. A big thanks to the captain and crew...

Fun at Sea
Sat, Mar 7, 09   8:00 AM kimimayer Female 20-29 Local Family With Children
The ride was fun, a bit choppy this day, but beautiful cool weather.

We thought we were not going to see anything, we were headed back to the harbor after a disappointing 1 1/2 hours, but then another boat spotted a whale and we were able to see it.

Overall, boring trip if you don't see anything - great if you do. We asked the crew when is the best time of day to go and we were told it varies and there is no perfect time to spot sea life.

The captain was fabulous
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Tue, Jun 23, 09   5:00 PM kimhabre Female 50-59 Combination Family With Children
We were only 15 minutes from the harbor when we spotted the first whale. The captain explained what we were seeing and stayed in the area until it "sounded". We witnessed the fluke as it dove down. Then we sailed to another spot where there were hundreds of dolphins swimming and jumping. They continued quite some time and the whole time the captain was sharing information. This was the most awesome experience and even now I get goose bumps! I had read about this activity prior to arriving in California from Oregon. I wanted to make a memory with my niece and nephew, this excursion provided that. On the way back into the harbor we spotted another variety of dolphin , sea lions and another whale. What an incredible experience.

Thank you so much. This was beyond my expectations.

We were able to see two blue whales and a sea lion and even ride with the dolphins!! It was amazing, we are so glad we went and are planning a whole or half day trip next time we are in town.
