Great trip for a great price! We went in the summer and saw the blue whale, which is larger than the gray whales in the winter. We saw the blue whale surface and dive... continued

I bought the trip as a father's day present for both, my husband and son. My husband enjoyed it and was able to videotape some of the trip, but because of all the moving... continued

We had a nice time, 6 tickets for the price of 4 is a great deal. No whales, but tons of dolphins, got some real nice photos. Would go again when the whales are running. Apparently there were Orcas seent he day before, but no luck for us.

We had a fantastic time! Of course it's always better when you see a blue whale. He surfaced about 6 times so we were able to really experience this massive, beautiful... continued

The boat was nicer than I expected it to be. White tables with seating on top and plenty of deck space on the sides. I was glad they had a snack bar and cocktails! The... continued

Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins or whales. We were issued $10 off each ticket for the next time. But if you buy through Goldstar you don't get any discount so this was pretty useless for us.

Nice crew and ship. No whales, but hundreds of dolphins frolicking around the boat. Good deal.

We saw plenty of dolphins up close with a very friendly staff. Rough seas that day and we didn't get to see any blue whales.

Weather was perfect. We saw lots of common dolphins and followed a blue whale around for about an hour. We also saw a sea lion.

My first time Whale watching and it was so much better than i expected. The crew was great, and we saw 3 blue whales. I was told that it rare to see 2, so 3 was a treat. I plan on going again in a couple of weeks and taking the kids!

We did see a blue whale which was a sight on my bucket list. Were a few dolphins too. Although we left our start point earlier than we thought we needed to, we barely got... continued

It was a great trip - although we missed out on any whales - we did see a huge pod of dolphins. The boat was clean and not too crowded and the crew members were all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend to others!

A completely mind-clearing event. Go and just enjoy the open sea. I left my worries behind and got lost in the magnificence of the ocean. The Dolphins were so fun to... continued

We saw 2 pods of Risso dolphins and Sea Lions. The boat was nice, not too crowded with space to sit. We really enjoyed it!

If it is not 'whale watching' season or the amount of people going is smaller, they use their small boat. This one has relatively nowhere to sit outside. So it is... continued
