Saw a blue whale from a distance and a huge group (not sure what technical term is) of dolphins. Crew seemed to know exactly where to head to see this wildlife.

Great staff, very educated and friendly. Didnt see any whales, probably because of the time of year but saw lots of dolphins. Didnt matter because we had a blast! wanted to do it again the next day! Highly reccomend.

You will see whales, and MORE!

Excellent value. The skipper was a whale "expert" and shared fascinating info through out the trip while safely allowing us to view the beautiful animals as close as possible. As a bonus, we were taken into a "mega pod" of dolphins, which was incredible! The tour was the perfect length, and you can't beat the So. Cal weather. Highly recommended.

Great trip!

We had a great trip. No whales on our tour but we saw many, many dolphin and sea lions. It was a fun trip and one we would definitely do again and maybe next time we would see the whales. They saw them on several tours the day before so we were just not as lucky. It's worth taking the chance and hoping to see them because it was so much fun just seeing the other sea life.

Fog, one whale tail, but still fun!

We made a date with the whale watching tour for a wedding party. It ended up getting foggy just as we went out on the ocean....we did see one whale before the fog got too think.

They did give us Whale Vouchers to come back again due to poor whether. We will definitely be back! Still had a lot of fun, good company, including the crew....made the trip memorable.

Saw only a small part of a gray whale. However saw several playful, jumping dolphins. The Captain worked very hard at searching for sea creatures. His narration was excellent.

Great weekend activity!

we did the two hour trip and if you have nice weather like we did this is a phantastic activity. The only reason I didn't give 5***** is because we didn't get to see a whale but that's just nature. In return we got to see lots and lots of dolphins up close. We went on the boat not the cat and the guy below making the burgers and drinks totally rocks. If you're lucky enough to actually see a whale this will make one of the greatest days of your life!

Baby whale show
Sun, Apr 12, 15   2:30 PM PETRIDIS Female 40-49 International Tourist(s) Individual
Captain was reading the path of the whale and her baby and we have been able to follow them without (I hope) any disturbance for the mom and her baby. The baby whale was enjoying to jump out of the water. He did it many times.

This is something not to be missed on a trip to California. Although we did not get to see any whales it has whetted our appetites to come back again in the hope that we see some next time. The boat trip was first class and very informative. I would thoroughly recommend.

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Apr 3, 12   12:00 PM peterthijs Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Nice trip on a neat ship.

We have seen lots of dolphins, but no whales (but you can't force nature I guess), 50% coupons were provided because of the absence of the whales. (can't use the coupons while we are on a short holiday but the gesture is very nice)

If you want to here a downside: we were in a line for almost an hour. We were 35 mins ahead of schedule as advised, and embarkment was 15 mins behind schedule.

It was a slow fishing day...
Wed, Oct 31, 07   10:00 AM peterkheang Male 20-29 Local Other
Upon arrival to the dock and fishing office the clerk was someone unhelpful. he seems unintrested in helping us. i bought tickets online and had "will-call" so i didnt recieve my tickets until the last min. he also said that they might not leave that day because there might not be enough people on board to go fish. they needed a minimun of 10 people. we only had 8 but ended up leaving anyways.

On the boat was a different story. the deck-hand guys were very helpful and the captain was very nice. even though the fish werent biting as we wanted them to, it was a slow fishing day.

it was our first time going deep sea fishing and an ok experience but i wish these guys would be a little more helpful in giving us a heads up on what to expect.
