Good Trip - One Whale, Many Dolphins
Sat, Mar 13, 10   10:00 AM albertsantos Male 30-39 Local Family Without Children
The trip was very good. We only got to see one whale lift its tail out of the water. The other whales were a little harder to spot. We could typically only see its footprint.

The lack of whales was surpassed by the abundance of dolphins. The boat captain steered the boat to an area that had a vast amount of dolphins. Being in the front of the ship provided the best experience for the viewing of the dolphins. You could look down the bow as see the dolphins in the water as the swam along the ship and jumped out of the water.

I would definitely do this again next whale watching season.

A preventable disaster
Wed, Mar 10, 10   10:00 AM JIManning Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Our whale watching was cancelled due to wind and rescheduled for the next day. We arrived with great expectations but what we got was sick due to the rough waters reculting from continued wind. Granted the wind was much lighter than the day before but cauised problems even at the lower force. We all took a dramamine just in case. In hind sight we may have been better served by taking more. Four of our group vomited violently while the rest of the group turned green. Not a single whale was spotted. The tour group gave us vouchers to some aback and try again free of charge which would have sufficed if we lived near by but we don't and so we spent our money for nothing.

Great fun! FREE BREAKFAST! FREE LECTURE!
Sun, Mar 7, 10   11:30 AM jaytadler Male 40-49 Local Family Without Children
We chose the catamaran tour because of the limit of 50 people. We did not want to be shoved like sardines into a tour boat. The catamaran was spacious and provided great viewing access for everyone on board. I have used this tour company before and we have ALWAYS seen whales! (maybe just our luck!) One thing that is not mentioned that I wish we had known about was the FREE BREAKFAST that was provided with the FREE LECTURE at 10am. It was very informative and humorous as well. Its well worth the additional money! The reservations were easy to make online and even if you are in a hotel and cant print the e-ticket out, they make it EASY by providing a number you can write down and take with you! The reservations department was well informed and I would certainly do business here again!

Too long
Sat, Mar 6, 10   12:00 PM daxrizo Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
the boat was too slow and upon arrival we had only but 15 minutes to wait for the whales to surface. another boat, same category, passed us on the way out and loitered around the whales much longer than we did. frankly not worth the price.

We enjoyed our experience!
Sat, Mar 6, 10   9:00 AM dianawillmes Female 30-39 Local Family Without Children
The fact that we saw two whales, and one was jumping out of the water made our experience unforgettable! The boat was on time, and the captain knew a lot about the whales. Would totally do that again!

Bargain price

Easy location to find.

Efficient checkin and boarding

Friendly staff

Clean, safe looking boat.

Comfortable accomodations

Successful sighting of sea lions, dolphins, gray whales

Just the right duration in time

--- not under your control ---

Beautiful day

In time to "do lunch" at the harbor with a good glass of chablis.

---minor recommendation ---

Maybe a little more low volume narration ( I wondered about the house on the cliffs too) with speakers located about the boat. I did catch most of what the marine biologist had to say but only because I was near him.

Great time

Just long enough to enjoy sun and sea, the trip was affordable, the crew upbeat and successful in taking us alongside several whales which just broke the water several times.

We would highly recommend this trip. We saw 3 whales and the captain kept up with them so we could obtain lots of photographs and he provided a lot of factual information. We also saw lots of dolphins and sea lions. Very enjoyable trip and we would certainly go again.

Three fin whales lunge feeding with a golden sunset in the background. It doesn't get any better than that!

Beautiful day

Our boat was the first of the day to see a gray whale. I have never been that close to a whale. The pod of dolphins we saw was huge, there had to be at least a hundred dolphins jumping in and out of the water. I do recommend having a camera with no delay if you want pictures. The crew was very friendly and informative. Best place to be is in the front of the boat.
