Fun time
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

We had a fun time and saw a lot of dolphins and some sealions, but no whales. It wasn't a good day from what the guide said, to see whales. I still had a blast.

My daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren (ages 8 & 10) were here in CA visiting from KY and I thought this would be a good experience for them. We happened to see the mega pod of common dolphins. The experience was beyond what words can express. The kids as well as the adults will never forget it. It happened to be a very cold day and it was overcast, but that did not put a damper on the cruise. The captain was very knowledgeable and friendly and the crew was helpful and friendly. It could not have been better! We didn't see a whale that day but it didn't matter! I would definately do this again.

Great crew and sailing

Light day for viewing ocean animals, but the crew searched and we found several dophins and a sea lion. Captain Larry shared a lot of information on the species and their habits. Enjoyable cruise on the boat. First time on the ocean. Would recommend it for anyone and hope to be able to go again one day.

The staff were good and patient-I was irritated with some kids and a parent next too me who left there rods unatttended. The staff did all they could but it sort of soured me on the experience-that and the teenages who though nothing of casting their bait near a bird and hooking it.

I still recommend the trip just because of the beauty of the harbor.

Absolutely Amazing
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Oct 29, 10   4:00 PM CWellham Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
I was hoping to see a few dolphins and enjoy a nice boat ride so I was absolutely amazed to see thousands of dolphins swimming and jumping through the ocean. Watching the sun set on the ocean was an extra bonus - just beautiful. This was one of the best experiences of my life. Thank You!

It was great that since we didn't get to see a whale, they gave us ticket vouchers for another day.

what an experience

My two sister in laws and i went on the half price tuesday adventure. And what an adventure we had... we did not see whales but hundreds of common dolphins!! Very playful and a few were showoffs, with their jumps and twirls. Many great photo opportunities! All three of us were very pleased. Do dress warm though , because as we were warned, it does get chilly out there on the ocean.

Lots of fun despite the weather
Tue, Oct 5, 10   4:00 PM Coleenh Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Although it was rainy the day we went and we didn't get to see any whales, we still had a lot of fun. We were able to see lots of dolphins and a group of sea lions. I would love to go again and when I return to the area I will be sure and get my tickets.

The people we met on board were all very friendly and Marcus was very sweet and very helpful with answering our questions. He made the trip very enjoyable.

Keep up the good work and thank you for a fun trip. We can't wait to get back out there so we can go with you again.

great fun but they needed music
Fri, Oct 1, 10   10:00 AM juliehill Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
On a whim my boyfriend and i decided to go sport fishing. we live about two hours away and the drive was great , no traffic. when we arrived everyone was very helpful and congenial. the crew was cordial and knew what they were doing. captain took us to several spots, however the fishing that day was poor and most of the fish caught were undersized. Not the captains fault. I wish though that they would have had a classic rock station platying on the boat so as to make the lulls in waiting for fish to bite a little more of a party or vacation-y atmosphere. otherwise it was fun and not too expensive..$106 for two people rentals included... food was great on the boat "clemete" Marcus the galley cook/hookbaiter/ kelp master was an excellent chef and they had a complete tasty hot breakfast and hot lunch available. nice that they tallied your purchases and you could settle up at the end..all in all it was a pleasant experience and we will go again hopefully when the bigger fish are biting.

The ocean is empty....almost

I was not given information from the main office where to wait. The day was gorgeous, unusually hot weather (high 90's - 100) and absolutely clear. The captain said it had been 6 months since they had this type of weather.

There was not a cloud in the sky, you could see for 5 miles with your bare eyes and 50-60 ft deep, no wind and a unusually calm ocean.

on a 2 hour trip over an hour and a half of NOTHING. I had come to see a blue whale since it is blue whale season - any whale would due since I have never seen a whale.

We eventually, finally, happened upon a pod of common dolphins feeding, which is unusual behavior to spot, and played with them for a short bit and watched them feed.

I know you cant guarantee anything, but I actually thought - wow, the ocean is empty! I only had 1 day to do things while traveling for work, I had hoped for a whale, any whale would have done, but a Blue... I would have cried with joy had I seen one of those.

It was a very disappointing trip, I am really glad I didn't pay full price and lucked out on 1/2 priced Tuesdays.

I would go again but I will not be back in California anytime soon near Blue Whale season.
