Unique Whale-Watching Experience

This experience was great. The Marine Biologist was very informative and was always finding things to point out for us. The trip to and from was longer than expected, which I think contributed to the overall number of people getting seasick. We were able to see 3 Humpback whales, a Sea Otter, and some sea lions. Overall, well worth the price and time.

I had the time of my life with my husband and children. It was my first time out in the ocean and I was able to see the world's most beautiful creatures.

Great whale watching experience

The boat was nice and the crew was very knowledgeable. The guide only spoke in English, I do not know if other languages are provided upon request. It was a 3 hours trip, we saw lots of dolphins, sea lions and some Humpback Whales. The dolphins were really close to us, the whales were a little bit far, but this is to protect them. I got dizzy when we stop to watch the whales, even when I had taken Dramamine, but this sensation varies from person to person, so I just recommend you to take the anti-motion sickness medicine just in case. Also, be prepared with warm clothes, even in the summer, it is cold. The marine fauna is beautiful there, we also saw lots of birds. It is a nice trip to do with kids.

Good time, will go again

Had a great time. The boat and crew were exceptional and professional. Pay the extra $20 for the upper deck, you'll enjoy the trip better as the view is outstanding. Don't forget the Dramamine motion sickness pills before you go. The swells can get large out there making for a rock-n-roll ride and it don't take long for motion sickness to set in for some folks.

saw lots of humpback whales

loved seeing all the humpbacks, the only draw back in my thoughts is that it takes the princess boats a lot longer to get out to where the whales are feeding. I have been out on other local cruises and we spent much more time out with the whales and not so much time getting there.
