No Whales, Lots of Dolphins
Tue, Jun 12, 12   2:00 PM pblaimont Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
So while we saw no whales the boat ride itself was greatly enjoyable, they have a guarantee that if no wildlife is spotted you get a ticket to come again another time, we saw a lot of dolphins and it was really great to be up close. The captain of the ship also had good knowledge about the dolphins and i learned a lot about them, overall great experience and i would go again

Informative and fun
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

The Captain was extremely informative and it became very educational for the 9 eleven-year old girls I had brought for my daughter's birthday. He also made an earnest effort to find sea animals, and we were treated to an amazing pod of common dolphins, as well as some more rare risso dolphins. The trip before us had run late, so he made sure that we got our two hours in, and it was a beautiful (cold, so make sure you layer!) sunset!

Great Crew

We waited 30 minutes past our boarding time, the previous trip was late coming in. I guess it was a bad day for whale and dolphin watching. None were spotted on our trip or the trip prior to ours. The boat was clean and the crew was great. Just a long 2 hours with no sightings.

Lovely day or a boat ride

This is our third trip with this company. Unfortunately we have never seen whales, but we were treated to a wonderful dolphin show last summer. The company is wonderful about returning your tickets for a future trip if they are unable to turn up any whales or dolphin on the current excursion. We look forward to our next trip out with them.

NO whales but still a nice boat ride
Tue, Jun 5, 12   12:00 PM Kgaucker Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We saw several sea lions sunning themselves, then some of the boat got a brief glimpse of a minki whale which the captain attempted to relocate but was unsuccessful. We moved onto some hot spots but didn't see anything again until the last few minutes of our trip, upon re-entering the harbor some of the boat saw dolphins. Since it wasn't a successful trip we all received a "whale check" to return for another adventure whenever we would like. We would all do it again.

Drunk people on boat using foul language
Sat, Jun 2, 12   5:30 PM funkydoc Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
I has hesitant when I learned the AM trips were no longer available and I had no choice but to buy 10 tickets for my two sons and their families (including 5 grandkids, 5 years through 12 years old) for this fishing trip which was a family gathering. We went on this trip June 2, 2012 5:30 through 9 pm. Three guys from the armed forces (Pendelton) came to the boat already pretty drunk. The staff continued to sell them alcoholic beverages. Their language was very offensive. At one time they called my son (who was battling a large fish, and is also a career Navy officer) "a son of a b****". That should not be allowed, and it really spoiled our trip. I will not return with my family in those circumstances, which is a shame, because I have really enjoyed other trips.

No whales
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

We didn't see any whales, but saw a bunch of dolphins. I was disappointed about the whales, however the crews' knowledge of the dolphins was very extensive. I felt that we should have gotten a future discount ticket or something since we didn't see whales.

loads of dolphin, no whales :-(
Tue, May 29, 12   5:00 PM rschalk Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The boat ride was fun with loads of expectation of seeing a whale. We saw a very large pod of dolphin which we stayed with for a very long time. Long enough for it to get a little boring. After that, the captain announced that we would go and look for a whale. For the rest of the trip we saw the ocean and the coast. Although we weren't guaranteed to see a whale, it was disappointing. We do understand that there couldn't be a guarantee of seeing a whale because they are wild creatures, after all. The boat ride was very pleasant and the crew members friendly and helpful.

Wonderful experience
Tue, May 22, 12   2:00 PM mettlera Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We saw two different types of dolphin schools, as well as the sea lions. Whales are a rarity. It is not my first time, but I always enjoy bringing visiting friends and family. It never ceases to impress, and we always get to see the sea lions and the dolphins..

Great service, but ...

We had a great time on the whale watch and were impressed that Dana Wharf returned our tickets after we didn't see any whales. However, I repeatedly told the ticket agent the ages of our 4 children and she still charged us the adult rate for each of them. When we got to Dana Wharf, the children's ticket prices were clearly posted. It was irritating to know that we could have saved about $20, but we had a great day!
