A great time on the ocean

This was a great activity for families with kids. Seeing the blue whale was the highlight, and we watched it surface, swim, and dive several times. The one suggestion would be to have the driver not always direct the boat directly 'at' the whale - those of us who were not able to crowd up to the front of the boat had to look around and between everyone up front. Luckily the whale came up on the side of the boat once, allowing us a better look.

Crew was pleasant and helpful.

Our time on board was exciting. We saw so many whales that we stopped counting them. Our Captain was very well informed regarding these mammals and provided us with insights and valuable information. We saw two whales breach at the end of our tour . What a wonderful and educational experience.

Gorgeous day, tons of dolphin sightings but the whale sightings were a disappointment.

A couple of rolling backs, that's it. I've been on many whale watches before and they always put on a good show. Captain seemed more concerned with getting us back in time to get the next boat out.

It was a great way to spend a day off with the kids. Even though the fin whale was elusive we got great shots of the common dolphins. We seem to forget all of the beautiful adventures that are so close to home. We have already made plans to take another tour!!

Great Family activity- enjoying our beautiful ocean, and being away from cell phones and TV! Fun to teach the kids how to fish. We caught 2 and had them for dinner!

The crew was fantastic, informative, professional, experienced, zealous of what they do. They managed the trip exceptionally. We were fortunate to track a whale for an hour, see sea lions, blue shark and best of all, the Dana Point sighting of the Orcas. The crew did a great job in making this a better experience than I ever imagined.

The whale watching tour was amazing!

I took my family on the whale watching tour for my husband's birthday. It was amazing! We over a hundred dolphins, one blue whale which came up to the surface at least four times and cute little seals. The weather was perfect and the scenery was beautiful. Not to mention the caption was very informative and had a great personality. I would definitely go again in the future!

What a great time. Very attentive and professional crew. Beautiful day. I took my 11 yr old son for his first ocean fishing trip. Well, he's hooked. In fact, we'll be back this Sunday.

Can't wait to return

First time ever going whale watching and we had a lot of fun. We didn't see any whales or dolphins but we seen a group of sea lions. Due to the fact that we didn't see any whales or dolphins we were given tickets to return for another visit and they don't expire. It was a great deal. We had so much fun we can't wait to go back!

We couldn't have asked for a better experience! We are looking forward to doing this again in July/August to see Blue Whales & we'll be choosing the same outfitters! The captain and deck hands were all great, knowledgeable and friendly. Their experience enabled us to not only see grey whales but to follow their path as they migrated down the coast. This is truly an experience our family will never forget- fun for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors! Children 3 to 93 will all be impressed and captivated not just by the ocean animals but also by the captains banter and knowledge of all things "ocean"! We enjoyed this excursion so much that we went twice the week we were visiting!

Nice Experience
Tue, May 12  12:00 PM tclermont Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We saw one humpback whale and one gray whale with a calf. There were also dolphins, seals, and sea lions. We sat on the top of the boat which provided us with a nice view, but only from one side of the boat. The whales happened to be on the other side of the boat and it was hard to see without having to go down to the deck. Wished we could have gotten closer to the whales.

We tracked one whale and the crew did a great job at explaining the tendencies of the whale and got us in good position to see it.
