Although parking was very difficult (arrive early!) the excursion was AWESOME! Crew was great and most importantly, we saw many whales and dolphins... amazing! Guess our group lucked out as the crew said it was an exceptional day.

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

It was not what I expected, did not see any whales but only dolphins. So it wasn't a total disappointment.

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 held about 100 people (I believed I over heard), you take a slow cruise out of the harbor where you have a great view of the home on Balboa, then out past the jetty and you’re off on your adventure.

The audio form the captain is not...continued

Was able to locate a Blue Whale just a mile or so off shore. Explained the dive time of the whale, and was able to see several times when the whale came to the surface. Very happy with the experience.

We saw a large pod of dolphins, a blue whale, and a few sea lions in the bay. I hope they choose to make the tours longer at some point since most of the time is spent leaving and returning. Overall my 5 and 12 year olds loved it! Bring water to...continued
