BEST NEW YEAR'S EVER!
Thu, Jan 2, 14   10:00 AM IamConnieZ Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Two of us went on Jan 2nd at 10am. The fog had gone out to sea and it was cold but sunny. The captain was in touch with other boats so we headed to where a whale was reported. She was pretty far out but we could see the water sprout from her blowhole. That was exciting, but then we saw two on the land side of the boat spouting water. One had to catch up with the one further away, but then they were swimming in tandom and decided to go deep for food. THAT'S WHEN THE TAILS COME UP! It was spectacular to see both of them swimming and diving together.

The captain gave us a history lesson and explained what the whales werie doing, where they were going & why, and when they would return. He was very good!

My friend had gone out several times but only seen the spouts. Boy was she excited to see the tails! I came to CA for the Rose Bowl Parade & then we decided to go whale watching on the next day. I'm so glad we did! I will always remember the whales much more than the parade. A wonderful way to begin the new year.

From making the reservations, to adding party members, to boarding and the trip, everything went smooth, crew was helpful and friendly, whale cooperated as did the dolphins. It was a day the family will always remember.

THE DIVA WHALE
Tue, Dec 31, 13   12:00 PM Archivist Male 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
Even if you don't see a whale, the boat ride is smooth, informative, and fun. When you see a whale, it's amazing! On our last trip we followed a Pacific Gray Whale making her/his leisurely way down the coast. The whale stayed near the surface and allowed us to get wonderful camera shots, especially of the tail in the air! We also saw dolphins and seals and all-in-all it was a happy day. And the enjoyable, informative live narration about the life of whales was fascinating!

Great activity terrible check-in

The actual event was great. Totally loved it even though we saw no whales. Nature is like that and I totally understand. I will certainly come and try again. Your captain was really good and informative and clearly knowledgeable. Your check in process though was simply terrible. The line was long and unbelievably slow. Terrible way to start the experience with a pointless standing in line. If I have bought and paid and printed my ticket why do you make me stand in line with those that have not done that. Instead of getting a coffee and finding a place on deck I had to stand there for 15 - 20 minutes waiting for someone who couldn't even operate the credit card machine. You guys really have to sort this part out. It's such a bummer to start an excursion like this with fifteen minutes of complete frustration. Had I not paid for the ticket yet, I would have walked away. Hope you fix it, despite this, I loved the experience on the water.

Great Experience

We had a family group of 10 people on Christmas eve. This was only a 2 hour cruise, but it was very well narrated with informative and fun information. We were able to see MANY dolphins and what a treat that was. We also saw two whales. The boat was comfortable, the crew friendly. We had a great time!

We have done this trip before, and it is always fun and instructive. No, we did not see whales this time, but lots of dolphins. Just a wonderful opportunity to get out on the water and reconnect with life out there.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Folks need to realize that whales will not be available all the time; they pass through the area at different times depending on the type of whale. We saw none and there hadn't been any recent sightings. We did see many dolphin; some of these played in the wake of the boat and many others were close to the boat. Crew was great and boat was comfortable. Enjoyed the trip. Company gives you ticket for half-off future trip.

Captain found a huge pod of dolphins

Boat is very nice and comfortable. Staff is friendly and informative. The captain spent extra time finding the dolphins for us. It was a pod of over 500 dolphins he thought. They jumped and swam all around us. It made the trip.
