How was your experience?
We went on the 2.5 hour long cruise at 10am. Perfect time of day to start your day in Newport Beach. They loaded us very efficiently and got us out to sea. Do not miss out on their half price galley for snacks and drinks . . . this happens before they actually make it out of the marina. Once we were out of the marina, we got to searching for something to see. Immediatly came upon a pod of dolphins. Our captain adeptly educated us on the different kinds of dolphins. Then we saw a Blue Whale. He was magnificent. Our captain explained to us the differences between the different whales and why this one would not breach. We chased the whale for awhile then the captain took us on a detour of more dolphins, a differnt kind, smaller. So cool to watch, we saw a seal and some sea lions. Overall, amazing event. We have been whale watching before and this trip was different, the captain used his knowledge of the area to really show us around and not jut take us out to sea and back. Definitely a higher caliber of Whale Watching! Thank you Davey Jones Locker, we will be back!
