Wonderful Things We Saw
Sat, Dec 29, 07   2:00 PM JosephRhodes Female 60-69 Unspecified Family With Children
The weather was a bit overcast with intermittent sunshine. We left the wharf on time and headed out to "sea." Shortly, the narrator spotted dolphins that swam along with the boat - underneath to the other side, right along and out in front. There were "oohs" and "aahs" watching these wondeful creatures. After a while, we headed to a marker and saw "resident" sea lions baksing ini the sun. Then way off a bit north, there was a spray and it was a gray whale. We followed it for some time watching as it came to the surface and then disappeared only to come up a while further on its path south. We were able to get good pictures, too. We had an 11 and a 10 year old [boys] with us and they had a great time, too.

Not that great; barely saw one whale

The staff were friendly, but we only saw one whale, and barely even saw one at that, he was really hard to spot. Nonetheless, that fulfilled the guarantee of seeing a whale, so we didn't get another trip. I think they need to make the tours longer than two hours to give more time for looking for whales. Two hours is not long enough. My nieces and myself were very disappointed.

Fun even tho no whales
Sat, Dec 8, 07   2:00 PM ssassen Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
we went out on a cold and windy day. Unfortunately we didn't spot any whales. The trip was fun though - and we got a pass to come back again for free. The boat was nice and well-maintained - and the crew seemed very professional. Our only suggestion is that there could have been more commentary during the trip. No one said anything from when we left until we got back. I'm only assuming they would have said something if we had seen a whale.

Great cruise on the boat! Saw Dolphins and Sea Lions, but no whales, as it was a bit early. Can't wait to come back to see them!

What a Day!
Fri, Nov 23, 07   12:00 PM felinepub Female 60-69 Local Other
The trip started on time, the crew were friendly and helpful, the day was beautiful, seas were clam, and the food was good (thank heavens that we don't ever get sea sick). We didn't get to see any whales but it's only the beginning of one season and the ending of another, but the Captain found a large pod of dolphins and took us to the center and we got to enjoy their play (sometimes right under the bow of the ship)...what a wonderful experience. The Captain also educated us about what we encountered along the way. Thanks much.

Great Family Outing
Fri, Nov 23, 07   12:00 PM miadumaine Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
We spend Thanksgiving with family each year in San Clemente. This was the first time we took this 'field trip' and had a blast. We had a group of 20 on the trip. We will now include this in our annual Thanksgiving weekend. Thanks for a great trip! The snack bar was also a plus as we had our newly born grandson with us so he could stay snuggled up inside and my daughter could still enjoy the view outside and not feel cooped up. Your staff was also very helpful and friendly. Thanks again and see you next year.

well, perfect weather, clean boat...

We saw no whales, but plenty of dolphins and sea-lions.

Make sure you have enough warm clothes:)

Enjoyed the trip even though we did not see whales
Sun, Nov 11, 07   3:30 PM maryeberndt Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
Unfortunately, we didn't see whales or dolphins. Even though not guaranteed, the crew gave us coupons for $10/per for future ticket purchases. Very nice, and we intend to use them during the Grey whale season. We did enjoy the boat ride in spite of the lack of sightings.

Greatly enjoyed this excursion. The crew were very knowledgable and interactive. No whales, but the dolphins were more than worth the trip.

Wonderful Time
Sat, Nov 3, 07   4:00 PM KDavidson Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My husband and I spent the day in California for our one year anniversary. We wanted to go on a whale watching excursion on our honeymoon but were unable to. We had the best time. The weather was a bit cool so I would highly recommend taking a light jacket but other than the chilly weather it was outstanding. We were able to relax on the boat a bit and get some great pictures of the whales. Seeing the whales was breathtaking. The staff knew what to look for and let the passangers know where to look when they spotted a whale. I would recommend this activity to anyone.
