The cruise itself was GREAT! Saw dozens of dolphins - very playful!! And 2 huge whales!

But... getting there was NOT half the fun!! We were not warned that we'd be in a LONG line to get on the ferry, and the whole "getting there" process was...continued

No whales or dolphins this time! It was disappointing to only see sea lions and the Newport Harbor. It was a nice boat ride though. Davey's Locker was nice enough to offer a "whale check" to come back anytime for free. All in all it was a nice...continued

The boat ride was delightful. Seagulls entertained us at the foot of the boat as we searched for the vanished whales. I was happy to have picked up a sandwich and water before boarding and used this down time to chat with other guests, finish my...continued

The cruise itself was fine. However, the person who checked us in was rather surly and didn't give us any information (like where to go). The boat was crowded and didn't have seats for everyone. The captain seemed informative, but the PA system...continued

I don't hold them responsible for the fact that we didn't see much because clearly that is something that is beyond them. They can't be expected to control what the animals do. However, they should have some rules about what the passengers can do....continued

Boat was there at the dock, but for some reason they didn't start loading until 3:30 p.m. when we were supposed to be leaving. So we left 10 -15 minutes late. Also difficult to hear the narrator from the outside deck. Otherwise a very...continued

Wonderful 2 hour cruise out of Newport. Boat was late in leaving, but there was plenty of room for everyone onboard to enjoy the outing. And yes, we did see whales and a large pod of dolphins!

We were very lucky. First we ran across a pod of dolphins estimated to be 2,000. It's always so fun watching them bow-riding along side the boat. Then we were delighted by a close encounter with a whale. It was a perfect day on the water, and the...continued

What a wonderful morning we two adults and three boys (ages 7, 11, and 12) spent on Davey's Locker whale-watching boat, the Ocean Explorer! Over the course of 2 1/2 hours in beautiful weather, we saw several blue whales, a minke whale, and quite a...continued

It was fun and exhilerating. I saw whales, dolphins, and seals. I saw a mother whale with her baby. Thrilling.
