ONCE IN A LIFETIME CHANCE
Tue, Oct 25, 11   2:00 PM jjbarr Female 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We went out on a Tues (1/2 price day) and the crowd was small I am guessing due to the cold cloudy weather that morning. But we lucked out and it turned absolutely warm and sunny before 2PM when we left. The captain took us right out to the whales and before we knew what was happening we were surrounded by many whales of all types - blues, fins and humpbacks - all in the same area and popping up and spouting all around us. The Captain said it was the first time he has ever seen so many kinds of whales in the same location at one time doing antics together. They were spouting, rolling and spiraling at the same time. Very exciting to watch and so worth the time and trouble to go. We took lots of pictures but the best part is just sitting and watching it as it happens. I'll forever have the picture in my mind. Thanks for the wonderful deal. Best money we ever spent!

We left right on schedule.

Guides were courteous, knowledgable, and friendly.

Sealife was explained very well.

I'd recommend this trip and hope to go again.

Bad weather and fog
Mon, Oct 17, 11   12:00 PM DebraKmak Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
It is hard to give any kind of a review since the fog and the weather didn't allow us to see any whales. At least we were able to see some dolphins and sea lions which helped. The cruise lines can't be blamed for the weather.

good value
Tue, Oct 11, 11   12:00 PM royalmom71 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
This was a good value for the whale watching tour. However, we didn't get to see any whales and we were so looking forward to actually seeing the blue whale. We did see dolphins and we did enjoy them. The crew were friendly and apologized for not being able to provide that unique experience of seeing a whale (especially a blue whale) up close; or as close as we can get. That would have been a highlight in my book.

I would book again and use the 1/2 off tickets.

2 kinds of whales and 2 kinds of dolphins. The captain deserves special recognition for the great job he did.

One of our best family days ever! Forever memory!
Sun, Oct 9, 11   2:00 PM Santrach Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
An amazing family adventure we will always remember! I wish I could upload a couple photos, we saw so much sea life and I learned a lot of new facts about whales and dolphins. There was so much whale and dolphin activity on our trip, we felt so lucky!! We will sail again with you. My 5th & 4th graders think October is the best month because we were so lucky with what we saw, looks like we have a new October tradition in our family!!

Great Activity! We got a free do over because of not seeing any whales on our first trip. We went back on Friday and enjoyed seeing 7 - 10 Blue Whales. Will do again on next trip to Southern California. The coastline is a awesome view.

The afternoon was wonderful aborad the Ocean Adventure. Because it was apretty windy day, no whales were in sight but we did see hundreds ot dolphins and that was a lot of fun especially swiming along side of us. I would recommend this excursion to everyone. The crew was great too. Thanks for the great time!

Worth it!

Our first time whaling watching and we had a lot of fun. The captain was informative and fun and we saw lots of whales, even dolphins who put on a small show for us. If nothing else, it was nice being out in the ocean at sunset (we were on the 5-7 trip)... not bad for half off!
