Nature's Playground

Our voyage was spectacular, we saw 10 Gray whales, over 100 dolphins and many sea lions. The catamaran was beautiful, sleek and fast in the water. The weather was picture perfect, hot with a slight breeze and the ocean was smooth as glass. The captain was so knowledgeable, informative and friendly. The whole experience was so fantastic that we all will be going again soon, there is nothing like being out on the water!

Had a great time. Go early as the morning waters are calmer and the sun doesn't bake you.

My triplets flew to California to be with me for their Spring Break. We planned this trip well in advance and could not have been more pleased with the Whale Watching Tour that you provided us with. The pod of dolphins was simply amazing (I thought a pod would mean 5-6 dolphins, not HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of dolphins!!!) Then, viewing the two California Gray Whales and having one breech right in front of us was just breath-taking. Thank you for making my triplets' trip so wonderful!

First Time Whale Watchers!
Sun, Mar 8, 15   10:00 AM AmGirl Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were worried we wouldn't see whales and this would be a wasted trip BUT we saw many whales and dolphins! After the 20 minute ride out to deep water, we were seeing spouts from the whales and there was a pod coming up for air every 3-5 minutes! It was exciting for a Midwesterner! We also saw dolphins with their young and some daring dolphins playing in and out from under the boat! We had a great time and would definitely go again. We went on the 10am tour. It was the perfect time for us.

Lecture and whale watching
Sat, Mar 7, 15   11:30 AM Lindacordero Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
This trip was our first time using this company and we will recommend it to everyone! The lecture was just the right length, although I would recommend that if people attend the lecture, they get priority boarding on the catamaran. We were at the end of the line because of the time to walk from the restaurant. The catamaran was comfortable and We thoroughly enjoyed the excursion.

A Most Enjoyable Morning
Sat, Mar 7, 15   8:00 AM Patpowers Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
We took the early tour, the first of the day. It was already sunny, clear and warm. They didn't over-crowd the boat so everyone could stand near the side. Operators found a pod of three whales right away, and they positioned the boat so that we could all see. Since the whales are migrating, we did not see any actually breach, but we were close enough to see them swim to surface, blow air and submerge, sometimes showing their tail fins. The ocean was not choppy, so there was no risk of sea sickness. When the first group moved on, we went back and observed another group of whales. So there was plenty to see, the day was beautiful, the boat was not too crowded and the operators kept us comfortable. We had a very good time.

Wonderful Day on the Water
Tue, Mar 3, 15   10:00 AM SheriNelson1 Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
Saw four whales -- blow holes, breaching and flukes, both north and southbound. Saw three species of dolphins in groups and the captain manuvered our ship so the dolphins would "surf" in the wake of the boat giving us all a great view. Sea lions were plentiful! The boat was very nice with a galley serving food below deck. An extra, raised deck made it easy for everyone to have a good viewing experience.
