The staff was incredibly friendly and communicated what we were expected to see and do while on the boat. While we did not find any whales, we enjoyed the dolphins we came upon. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

It was a beautiful day with sun shining. The boat was nice. The only problem was no whales!!! We did see a school of dolphins who frolicked around for quite a while, but that was our only excitment. You can't blame the boat...the whales were...continued

Now this was a great time!! We didn't see any whales this time around but got numerous pictures of what must have been a school of 50-100 dolphins racing the boat. They jumped and raced the boat and stayed right at the edge so you could just look...continued

Tempted to give 4 stars...more like 3.5

The crew was very nice and friendly...trying to follow some whales. Unfortunately, by law (not their fault), they had to keep a distance so it's really hard to see much w/o binoculars. If you don't mind...continued

WE FOUND OURSELVES IN A POD OF DOLPHINS AND THE BOAT STAFF TAKE THE VERY BEST PICTURES EVER. BRING A JACKET AS YOU ARE ON THE WATER. IT WAS A WONDERFUL TIME.

Cool to go out on the water. Unfortunately the weather was not great so you can't fault them for it. It was colder than usual and with the overcast it got dark fast. Give them credit they tried hard to find us something to look at. All else fails...continued

It was great! We saw a blue whale, a pod of common dolphins and sea lions. The crew was very polite and the ship sailed on time. They had lots of useful knowledge of the sealife. Bring sunscreen before you go. We had to purchase it and it was...continued

We took our 13-yo grandson out for whale watching. Couldn't find any whales, but we did see a good number of dolphins and of course the seals all over the one buoy..beautiful, sunny, somewhat crisp day out on the water. Captain was very helpful,...continued

First of all I want to say that we did see a lot of dolphins and see a couple of blue whales. That was cool. The boat they put us was the Western Pride. It was pretty small, with very few places to sit down. Most people had to stand for the...continued

I attended this event with my daughter and two grandsons. We had a great day. The weather was perfect and it was a very enjoyable afternoon. We saw two whales and a large school of dolphins swam next to the boat for a long period of time. We...continued

Newport Beach is beautiful. I'd never seen it before. It's worthwhile to take a cruise just to be on the water there.

I've been whale watching before and been disappointed and unlucky to not wee anything, so I set my expectations low. We saw...continued

It's like what others have said. If you enjoy just being out on the sea and under the sun, it's a no brainer to get on a boat and look for wild life :) If that doesn't energize you, then this probably isn't for you. By the way, I rate it four...continued
