Perfect, took my 11yr old granddaughter and we saw 3 or more blue whales, one up close. Saw dolphens and sea lion, pellican. She had the time of her life. Great trip, very nice crew. Fun day.. She wants to go again next year.

We didn't see any whales but saw HUNDREDS of dolphins. Sea lions and great waves also rounded out the tour. The staff is friendly and informative. A very nice cruise out and back.

We had a wonderful weather. The ride was nice, and we saw lots of dolphins, but were not lucky enough to see whales!! nice afternoon in the ocean, though. A nice view of the California coast from the sea.

My family enjoyed this cruise out in the water. We saw 3-4 blue whales but no dolphins. One of the blue whales was right next to our boat - amazing! My children especially liked the cruise and seeing the whales. We brought our own snacks and...continued

We had a very enjoyable cruise on a lovely Sunday afternoon. The captain was very knowledgable and kept us informed about the marine life we saw. Lucky we were to see a mama grey whale and her young baby whale cruising the OC coast. We followed...continued

Don't expect a whale sighting, plan a nice boat ride along the coast. With luck and the great crew, you just might encounter a nice surprise with a whale sighting.

It was nice to be out on the water, even though we didn't see any whales and we saw only four dolphins or so.

Shame, they are not allowed to go closer to whales. Picture is a lie.

We were pleasantly surprised at all the whales we saw. It was such fun to watch for the spouts and get close enough to see the whale surface and then dive with a show off wave of it's massive tail. This was a real treat.

There are...continued

It was GREAT! Didn't see any whales but we were right in the middle of a pod of dolphins, hundreds of them! I took out of state family and they all just loved it. The crew was very professional and friendly, the half price tickets made it that...continued

We did not see any whales, however, we were fortunate enough to see merging pods of dolphins. The boat was completely surrounded and they swam with us for about 20 minutes. The captain estimated 600 - 1000! He said it was the largest pod he's...continued

We saw 4-5 blue whales and some sea lions--that was the amazing part! I gave it 3-stars because we bought tickets for a noon ride on the Ocean Explorer but since the venue oversold, they put us on a 12:30pm boat instead, Western Pride. This was...continued

When we arrived we were redirected to "Thier sister ship" which was a walk to the end of the shops, this was difficult due to one of our group is hadicapped. Of course, seeing Dolphins are a hit and miss, not really expecting to see many, though...continued

It was a nice boat ride. A lot of dolphins and some sea lions on the buoy, but unfortunately no whale sightings. But because of that, they gave us a coupon for half price on a return trip. The only critique I have is that they said they allowed...continued
