Beautiful and pleasurable experience

Certainly helped that it was a perfect day weather wise, but had it not been, the entire experience was really great.

Boat was so nice and immaculate, staff was friendly, and we saw a pod of dolphins...amazing. Didn't see a whale, but they actually gave our tickets back to try again! Can't wait to go back.

Did not see any whales

It was cold and windy, saw quite a few dolphins but no whales. We were disappointed as we had family from Europe and Chicago area with us.

Who cares about the whales
Sun, Jan 29, 12   12:00 PM Adinaross Female 60-69 Combination Couple on a Date
A rare day. The weather was perfect, the boat wasn't too crowded and clean with great drinks and snacks, and the dolphins were out in droves. Even the Captain hadn't seen so many dolphins at one time. They were following the boat for miles, playing and jumping out of the water. A great treat.Yes, I know it was a whale watching tour, but we'll be back because it was a wonderful exciting and rare sighting.

Fortunately I was able find the right motion sickness med. Sunny day, 2 spy hops, couple of flukes, lots of dolphins close to the boat. Captain had hick-ups the whole time. Quality entertainment. Nothin' bad to say!

Whales but no whales?
Sat, Jan 21, 12   2:00 PM rafiki_22 Female 40-49 Combination Other
As an advise, I really recommend if you don't like ocean, or you know you can have nausea, please don't go on board. Vomit is not something very cool, if you trow in the ocean, its ok, but inside the boat, not very cool. So, please, think about that and think there's other people with you in the boat. We were not able to see any whale, the weather conditions were not good, ocean very rough and many white waves. Basically it was a nice round trip in a boat for a couple of hours. They give us passes to go see the whales again sometime in the future. I love ocean, I didn't care much about not seeing whales, also because I live in the area, I can basically go anytime. It's just a matter of luck.

Exciting Trip

We often take visitors to special things in the area, and whale watching is one of the true highlights. This trip we found and followed a grey whale for about 20 minutes, getting his rhythm, seeing the deep dive with tail flop a number of times. Really exciting. I love it because this is where the whales live; it's not SeaWorld. The boat trip up and down the coast is also very beautiful. I'll be back, alone or with visitors, many times again.

Great experience all around

We left on time, the crew was friendly and informative. Slow fishing in the winter but we moved around a bit to try new locations as needed (we hit 4). We are inexpereinced fisherpeople and the crew was good about helping when lines got caught and even helped set up the poles we borrowed.

Our 2-hour trip took us down the coast off of San Clemente where we found a large black fin whale. We spent about 45 minutes watching him circle around the area eating krill. On our return trip we stopped and saw California sea lions resting on a buoy. Everyone on the catamaran had a good view. The crew gave a very informative narrative.

A memorable, lifetime experience

My extended family gathered for my birthday. We decided to go on the whale watching trip as a group activity -- 12 of us. Maybe we were lucky; but we saw seven whale flukes and countless porpoises, even baby ones, all around our boat.

Our captain was eloquent in what he told us about all the animals and their behavior, which was of enormous help in understanding what we were seeing and knowing what to look for. I learned that there was a whole different world under our seas.

It was truly and experience we will all remember for a lifetime.

Well narrated successful whale search

This was my fourth whale watch outing in a month. It was just as good as the others (with a different company) and the narration was perhaps even better in the way the naturalist explained the 2 pods of dolphins and the blue whale that the captain found for us.

We had a great time. Wasn't sure if we would actually see any whales but we did. We followed a mom and her baby around for a while. The captain did a great job of finding the whales. It was also very educational, we learned a lot about the blue whales.

Really enjoyed our time on the water

The whales were closer than I expected. The dolphins were so close to the boat that we could see their energy and playfulness. My nephew had taken the trip a month earlier and described the dolphins activity but until you see it it is hard to believe. The weather was perfect (sun, a light breeze, rolling waves but no whitecaps). We even learned a little about the whales habits and range.

Ship's stuff is friendly.

Great Trip!

The crew is great -- dedicated to trying to get you to see a whale (and dolphins). Our captain even continued on to see the whale surface again, when we was supposed to be heading back to port. Great trip!
