Pretty nice boat trip
Tue, Jan 20, 09   12:00 PM marydahl Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
We enjoyed the boat ride but saw only a few dolphins and no whale. As we took the whale watching and were wanting to see whales, of course we were disappointed.

We did this trip 5 or 6 years ago and although we again did not see whales, we ran into a large group of dolphins jumping up and running along side he boat for almost a 1/2 hour.

We tracked one whale and the crew did a great job at explaining the tendencies of the whale and got us in good position to see it.

Well managed logistics

The process was professional and the crew very competent

While on the excursion, was told that this "really isn't the time to look for whales, that comes in a month or two" by a local who regularly liked to take the trip to study dolphins, or so he said.

If that is true, I think it would be better for the company to highlight that fact.

No whales and short on porpoises

It was a terrific day in Southern California to be on the water: clear, warm, beautiful!!! The boat and staff were great! We really enjoyed a nice cruise. Sadly, no whales -- not something anyone can guarantee, of course. Then, in the final 5 minutes of the cruise -- just in time to save the refund(!) -- we happened upon a couple of porpoises. As we disembarked, the staff wished each of us a Happy New Year AND reminded us over and over again that we had seen a couple of porpoises. I wouldn't have minded so much if the boat company weren't so blatant about protecting their refund policy.

Just didn't see any whales! Saw dolphins.

The organization and process of ticketing, boarding, and disembarking was great. The crew was nice and they tried hard to find some whales in the two hour cruise. We spotted some riso dolphins near the end of the cruise and got up close for some good pictures of them. The ship was clean and comfortable. They did give us a $5 discount on fishing or whale watching later on.

Did not see any whals or others.

I invited my children from San Fransisco to come and enjoy waching whales. The smal children were very exited. About 2 hours cruise we did not see any of sea animals.

They told us we can try one more time. Hopefully the children will come again and partisipate.

We saw 2 whales!!
Fri, Nov 21, 08   3:30 PM ginnyros Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
We really enjoyed our cruise. We first saw sea lions on a buoy. Then one whale was spotted (by the crew), then a second one! Our captain followed these whales (as best as he could) for the rest of the cruise. It was great to actually see whales on a whale watching cruise. They, apparently, don't always find where the whales are hiding. I wished that I would have had a high-speed camera to capture pictures of the whales when they surfaced!

Outstanding Trip

I have been on whale /dolphin watches all over the world.

I have NEVER seen so many dolphins. There were hundreds of them frolicking all around the boat.

Skilled captain knew just where to go.

Enjoyed the day and the crew was helpful

I was disappointed in that the fishing was poor and I thought that at those spots where we encountered seals and sel lions that we ought to have moved, for my experience, althought it is alaska, tells me that when you are in the company of seals and sea lions, the fish are no where to be found.

As a newcomer to your area, it would also have helped perhaps to give us an idea of where you were going to fish.

You cant do much about those days when the fishing is poor, so take my thought with a grain of salt.

First Time Out
Wed, Sep 17, 08   10:00 AM mtnmaw Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This was my first time ever at deep sea fishing. The crew where encougaging and reassuring. I caught four fish, threw 3 back and enjoyed one for dinner, with leftovers to freeze. It was a very fun experience and I recommend it.

It is the wrong time of year to go on a boat tour, but we were there. There was nothing wrong with the tour, but we did not see anything.

A terrific afternoon!
Sun, Sep 7, 08   1:00 PM pamilow Female 60-69 Local Other
We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. We loved having a marine biologist on board to tell us what we were seeing and to answer questions. The captain made every effort to get us to where we were able to see about 30 minutes of blue whale activity even though it meant we would be a little late getting back. It made the cruise that much more enjoyable. The crew was friendly and helpful and the catamaran was clean and comfortable. We had a great time.

A friend and I decided to go out on a 1/2 day boat. Weather was great, the fish were biting quite well. All in all, we enjoyed it a lot and plan to go again on a regular basis. The crew was very helpful and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend.

The Captain and deck hands are polite and on-hand to assist youngsters and everyone , whatever their level of experience,with tackle and taking the fish off the hook.
