We went whale watching for the first time ever. We didn't see any whales but did see dolphins and seals. They tried finding whales but they just weren't visible, so a bit of a bummer but still overall fun.

We really enjoyed our experience, and saw a few whales plus a hilarious pod of dolphins. The only problem was that the great information being shared by the encounter person was so muffled that we could only catch about 1/3 of what he was saying.

The whale watching trip was well organized, fairly priced, a good activity for out of town guests. Unfortunately there were no whales, but that's something that can't be predicted. We did see lots of dolphins.

Giant Humboldt Squid Bite Wide Open..........
Mon, Feb 1, 10   5:30 PM TaperSteve Male 20-29 Local Family With Children
Went 2-1-10 after hearing about it on FNN and the news Monday morning. You gotta go. Its the best $25 ive spent in a long time. Boat was full with 55 anxious anglers. Went out maybe a mile or 2. There were about 6-10 other boats all in the same area we went to. Captain said we are metering lots of squid, time to fish! Dropped my squid jig down, down, and down some more. "Where are they I thought?" as everyone lowered and lowered their jigs deeper and deeper into the water. Then about 2 minutes in, BAM! Then another one, and another. In less than 5 mins everyone on the boat was battling one of these monsters! Gaff! Gaff! Gaff! thats all I heard. As soon as they started biting they moved up to the surface. Right when you would drop the jig in the water, BAM! another one. Squid on! After about an hour of fishing and 3 Giant Squid later the captain announced, "Please dont drop anymore lines in the water". He was sure to ask if everyone caught what they wanted and that everyone caught atleast one squid. The captain explained that with so many anglers on board and so many squid being caught if we had fished any longer we would not get back to dock until after midnight. They have to clean all the squid before returning to the dock. It did end up taking longer for the crew to clean all the squid then it did to catch them. That though was a show all in its own. The unofficial count was around 375 for the boat. Im sure I coulda caught more but I was also helping my 9 year old daughter and my wife. All together we caught 7. Anyone who is even considering going has got to go while it last. The crew and captain were really nice and helpful as were the people in the shop. Hope I can go again later this week if theyre still biting..........

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

My family was visiting in town, so I decided to go whale watching since I'd never seen whales before. I booked online for three but was told that the boat was full for that day (this was a sunday) and I could re-schedule for the next day. So I did, and man, did I enjoy!! We saw about 8-10 sightings of about 3-4 blue whales, the guys steering the ship took us real close to the whales and we got some awesome views. On the way back we passed by a shoal of dolphins and it was a pleasure to see them whip out of the surface every 3-4 seconds. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed and so did my parents. The guys who were steering the ship were very good and went out of their way to ensure all onboard got great pics. They were also very informative, giving out tidbits of information about the whales every now and then over the blow horn. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. Book in advance though, and try going on a weekday, the crowd is lesser and there is more time given per trip. My whole trip lasted about 2 hours on the sea. Very enjoyable indeed!

What a beautiful afternoon. Our captain was very descriptive about what we were going to see and a few moments later there they are 2 amazing blue whales! Everyone in my group had huge smiles on their faces as we kept track of the minutes waiting for the whales to resurface. Great pleasure to watch these amazing animals. We had lots of room to move about the boat and stand at the rail to get the closest look at the whales. We also kept track with a pod of swift moving dolphins and then we ended our trip by looking at the sea lions in the area.

Such a memorable experience and a fun way to see a little more detail about California. My 10 and 12 year old and their 70 yr old Nana loved their adventure and we all agreed to do this tour again. Thank you.

Though we are local, we had family in from Upstate New York. The group ranged in age from 10 to 70. The eldest was in a wheelchair. Every person had a blast and didn't stop talking about it for the rest of the trip. The crew helped my aunt in the wheelchair down and up the ramps. My uncle didn't have to do a thing. They are all super nice and enthusiastic. We all had a great time!

This was an incredible trip. We ended up in the middle of a pod of dophins. They were playing with the boat we were on. Jumping out of the water and swimming all around us. Absoulutly glorious. The captain kept us out there as long as he could, it was great! The captain and crew were very informative and accomodating. I would highly recommend this trip. I know we will be going again.

Did not see any whales this trip out but have seen lots of whales in the past. Good thing is they give you a whale check so you can come back again so it's guaranteed.

We had a great experience. The crew was friendly and explained to everyone when they spotted something and interacted well with the passengers. Most important to me was their schedule. We left exactly at our departure time and returned on time. I hate when you have to wait around for people to show up. I would do again and again and again.
