Not such a clear day out on the water, however, it was beautiful. The boat was a little rocky, so motion sickness medicine is highly recommended. Was feeling a bit ill until we saw the Pacific White Sided Dolphins and they were beautiful! Coming right up to the boat and showing off for the cameras! This was our second trip with Princess Whale Watching and we would for sure do it again. The staff is friendly and accommodating, :)

My fiancé and I recently booked a trip with Princess Whale Watching for Valentine's Day. We'd used Princess before and had a wonderful time, and our second trip was just as fun. The boat was smooth and had plenty of space for everyone to get a good view. We traveled for about forty-five minutes before we saw whales, but we definitely saw them! We got remarkably close to a group of four gray whales. They were gorgeous! We followed them for about another half hour to forty-five minutes, with excellent photo opportunities. And then, on the way back, we stumbled across a pod of dolphins! We promptly turned to follow the pod for ten minutes or so. All in all, the trip was a success, tons of fun, we saw plenty of marine life, and even had a narrator to tell us fun facts about the whales, etc. An excellent idea for couples, families, or even quiet individual time. Recommended!

we had a good time !! The crew was knowledgeable and helpful. Wish the whales could have been seen closer but we know with wildlife that doesn't always work out.

It was fantastic! Felt a little sea sick but the guards were helpful and took me at the back. Did not see too many whales or dolphines but just being out in the ocean was well worth it. Highly recommend it.

The staff was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. We were able to get really close to the whales, and the staff were great in pointing out where we should be looking.

Overall, the trip FAR exceeded my expectations.

The crew was very good and informative - the day was perfect weather wise and the ocean was quite. I would not likely go again - that is not reflection on the service or experience - once you have seen a whale, the next one looks just the same.

I would recommend the trip to someone else because it is worth going out once.

This was a very nice day trip out to see the Whales. She was very informative as to the questions people in our group would ask her. Learned alot about Whales, dolphines and All the different kinds of birds out at this time of year. Would recommend this trip to everyone!
