Fun outing with the dolphins
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Nov 5, 11   10:00 AM RandRT Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We went on the $32 whale watching 2-hour tour. While we didn't spy any whales, we enjoyed playing with the dolphins on a fairly calm sea under sunny skies. The captain gave a nice commentary as we left the harbor and we enjoyed learning from him about sites on shores as well as the (unseen) sealife under us. He seemed genuinely disappointed that he couldn't make the whales appear. But we had a nice time and recommend this family friendly cruise. Some on our outing were rather seasick. Take Bonine or Dramamine even if you think you will not need it. Also sucking on mints while on the waves is helpful. You will need a hat or visor to enjoy the fresh air seating. Binoculars were very helpful.

the boat crew was great! organized from the time we checked in, the crew were helpful with lines, poles, bait. it was great to have live bait. some of the 'regulars' were nice and friendly, too, but as we were first timers to this type of fishing, the regulars grabbed the best places to fish on the boat and not until the very end, my kids were given the opportunity to fish off the back of the boat. my 11 year old son was extremely disappointed he was the only one in our group who didn't even have a hook up. it was a nice boat ride, as we saw seals and flocks of pelicans.

Nice sunset cruise
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Mon, Oct 5, 09   5:00 PM ranchforeman Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
Saw sea lions. Did not see anything else. gorgeous sunset view. Would maybe go earlier as we were cold. Web site said that if we did not get to see dolphins or whales, would get a $10 coupon for next trip. We were not offered that. Could tell the guys tried really hard to spot something. They said the whales were not seen in this area yet so wondered why this was advertised as a whale watching adventure. Felt somewhat misled on that. Overall good we went, saw the beautiful coastline and the sunset.

A very friendly group of guides. Very knowledgeable of all sea life and their habits and patterns. Went way out of the way to find a gray whale and found him and cruised with him for a while. Cruised for quite some time with the dolphin as well. They made you very comfortable and walked around making sure that all questions were answered and nobody was unsatisfied. This was for my daughters birthday and we did an early afternoon cruise, it was perfect and a perfect fun beginning to her day!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! They were too cool and it was way fun!!!

Definitely worth it!

I decided to surprise my girlfriend by taking her here because her favorite animal are dolphins. Even though we didn't happen to see any whales on this specific trip there were dolphins galore! Personally I had never seen so many of them and they swim right up to the ship so they are easy to see! We definitely had a great time! Crew and everyone were very nice and knowledgable as well. Worth it.

Too Crowded on Tuesdays

The price was great. The fishing wasn't good on the day I went. I only caught two tiny Sculpin. The boat was way too crowded. I would not suggest going on 1/2 price Tuesdays.

OK cruise
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

It was an ok cruise did not spot a whale. i know its not guaranteed but only saw a pod of dolphins in the entire cruise. Crew was helpful and energetic. The only downside was that for half the cruise we just sailed looking for animals

Fantastic Trip !!!

It was a fun trip for all of us. We saw so many Dolphins and Sea Lions, but we weren't lucky to see any Whales. My kids were so excited to see the Dolphins in their natural environment. My little one was telling to everybody in school the next day about her trip and that she saw Dolphins coming under the boat. She was so happy. It is one in a lifetime opportunity to watch Dolphins and Whales in their natural habitat playing and swimming. We went their with my cousins who came to visit us. They also had a wonderful trip. I think it's a wonderful family outing.

The boats are big and spacious and they have a small sitting area where you can sit and eat inside the boat. You can also see whales and dolphins from the top roof of the boat.

Did not see any whales
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

We could not see any whales. The boat driver was just circling around in a small area where dolphins were swimming.

Towards the end he headed home and apologized for not able to spot any whales. He could have gone deeper into the ocean rather than circling in the same area and giving speeches about the lives of dolphins.

Awesome ride!

Even though we just saw a glimpse of 2 whales, we saw a lot of Dolphins and they really entertained us. The captain went out of his way (extra 30 mins) to look for signs of other whales. It was a cloudy and chilly day, but we really enjoyed a lot!!

Terrific Trip

Second trip. Both great. First trip enormous dolphins stampede and one fin whale. Second trip a few dolphins and seals with 13 gray whales showing a lot of flukes. Both trips very very enjoyable.
