Great price

Once again, the price is the main perk of this trip. We've been out many times before with this group, and for the price it can't be beat (especially if you are in a group). So for that reason, I recommend this trip with this outfit. I was disappointed this time though... it took 1 1/2 hr and a tip from a local fishing boat to find a whale. I admit that's not really the fault of the company. But, what was disappointing is that the 1 1/2 hrs was spent zipping up and down the coast in FREEZING weather with no commentary whatsoever. The least they could have done is talked a little about the gray whales while searching for them, or had some whale artifacts to look at or something to make it more than a boat ride at 8am on a Saturday in the cold, damp weather. When we finally found the whale, it did not disappoint. He put on a great show. We really only got to spend about 10 minutes tracking it because it was time to head back - everyone kept mentioning how it felt like it was being crammed into the last few minutes so that they wouldn't have to hand out vouchers for free trips since we technically saw a whale. But again, for the price, this is totally the way to go.

great for the price

I've been on this trip twice this season. I think it is a great deal if you go on the discounted Tuesdays. I have two young children for whom being on the boat is at least half the fun; they love the dolphins and sea lions, and are excited about the whales. Given that most other whale watching trips in the area are upwards of $30/person, it's much more feasible for us as a family to go out on this trip. If you are planning a trip just for adults or with much older children, I think Captain Dave's trip is better; I think his teams are better at finding the whales and education is a huge piece of their trip. But for families on a budget, or particularly for families with small children who are just happy to take a boat ride and see a few dolphins (although we did see a whale the second time we took the trip), this is definitely the way to go.

Good time, nice weather. Fish not biting much but thats fishing! Only complaint was that the crew was fishing also.... unreal! You would think they would have a rule about that and some common sense.

I took my 18-yr old sister who was visiting from Michigan on the Blue Whale Watching Cruise. I have never been on one of these before so I really didn't know what to expect, but I must admit that I wasn't expecting much. I was extremely pleased though at the wildlife we were able to see on our 2-hour cruise. We saw seals in harbor and a school of about 50+ dolphins swam around the boat for 15-20 minutes! It was an amazing sight. There were also 4-5 blue whales in the area and the boat captain made the effort to make sure we had an opportunity to see all of them. He even stayed out in the water longer than scheduled to make sure we could see the whale "fluke". In addition, the captain was very informative and engaging and made for a great trip. I highly recommend this to everyone...I will be going again! On a side note, we went on Tuesday which is half-price day. It was an excellent value, but everyone seems to wait until Tuesday to go, so the boat was pretty full. If you can afford to go on another day of the week, I would do so.

My eight year old and I took advantage of the kids fish free deal they had going on Sundays. It was a load of fun but a bit crowded. I guess a good deal is appreciated by more than just myself. The crew was very accomodating, upbeat and helpful. I couldn't have asked for more from them. We're going to be doing it again soon.

I would highly recommend this trip. We saw several whale and dolphin throughout most of the 2 hour trip. The amenities on the boat are plentiful, and the crew was very friendly and informative about the sights we were seeing.

We loved the whale watching trip--great experience

My husband and I and our son took our friend and her son out on the whale watching boat--and loved the experience.

The boat was clean, the food was good, the extra $$ was worth it to have an uncrowded boat where we could really see the dolphins and whales "up close" without fighting for a space by the railings. The commentary was terrific--knowledgeable and filled with wonder and energy--as if he was seeing all of it for the first time with us. The whole tour was a great experience.

Fun with my son

My Indian Guide Tribe put together a father son fishing trip to spend some time with our boys and had a fantastic time. The crew was very helpful with baiting hooks for the boys, fixing broken lines and helping the boys understand what fishing was all about. My son caught a variety of fish, learned how to actually bait the hook, how to get his line in the water without spooling the reel, how to reel in the fish and get it over the side of the boat and where the best places to fish on the boat are. Thanks for a fun trip.
