Gray whales & a megapod of dolphins
Sat, Feb 1, 14   2:30 PM judithLV Female 50-59 Combination Family Without Children
I have never seen so many dolphins together at one time; hundreds leaping and cavorting.

The whales (3) showed their tails. Sun was shining, it was a great 2 hours.

This was a great way to entertain my family who came in from out of town! Everyone enjoyed the cruise and had a wonderful time. The crew was friendly and very knowledgeable with the local marine life. We will definitely return in the near future!

The trip was informative, successful in that we saw whales up close and the boat was comfortable and stable. We loved the whole experience.

Great way to spend a few hours

We saw a California Gray Whale from up close. Wow!! The highlight was the hundreds of common dolphins swimming and jumping around the boat. This trip is a must do while in Southern California!

Enjoyable Trip in Calm Weather

We saw a few whales, but they didn't show much above the water, but we were there to observe them in their natural habitat, so it was fine. The captain on our boat was really nice and well-informed. He kept us entertained as he tried to find us the whales to view without disrupting their migration.

We very much enjoyed the trip and the commentary

We take this trip about once a year, and always thoroughly enjoy it, whether or not we see whales. This time we did. The only essential ingredient is good weather. The trip on the sparkling water, with the beautiful coastline and sun overhead, is well worth the price (and half price is even better).

Great experience
Sat, Jan 4, 14   2:00 PM Au1992 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Very nice facility, easy check in and a nice boat. Crew was great and the captain was very personable and informative while we were out. The coast is beautiful and well worth the trip just by itself. Seeing wildlife was great. We saw a whale and some very acrobatic dolphins. I learned a lot on the trip and would highly recommend.

Beautiful ride down the shore
Sat, Jan 4, 14   12:00 PM lonnidavis Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I would recommend this activity as you get a beautiful ride down the shore and get to see lots of dolphins and sea otters! I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see a whale but understand you have no control over that however definitely worth the trip.

Wonderful New Years Day watching dolphins & whales
Wed, Jan 1, 14   12:00 PM Mariogreco Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Really enjoyed this whale watching trip! Nice boat with plenty of room so everyone could see the animals. Our guide was very informative about the wildlife and considerate of them. Saw a pod of dolphins who played behind our boat and a pair of grey whales. We're back in SoCal in August and plan on doing this whale watching trip again - I want to see blue whales!

Great activity terrible check-in
Fri, Dec 27, 13   10:00 AM Artscheffer Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
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.

We had a great time.
Sun, Dec 22, 13   2:00 PM mborgeson58 Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
My family and I had a great time. The staff was helpful and the boat was nice.

The Captan was very knowledgable and told us about whaling\fishing history and stories of the past during the trip.

We saw a mega pod of dolphins (like 300+ dolphins), a whale, and some sea lions.

Highly recommended.
