Gorgeous day out on the water. Though we did not see a whale like the boat before us it was not for lack of trying by the captain and his crew.They even gave everyone a half off coupon to come back again since they didn't see any whales. I told...continued

Great crew, great windy coldish day, wonderful expert on board describing dolphin life. Tremendous dolphin school, late for whales, got 1/2 price coupon for subsequent trip. I recommend.

Great event. Newport Beach and Balboa Island are fun. The deck hands were very accomodating, as we had a 19 month old and a stroller. Everything went smoothly. Would definitely go again.

I took my godson and we looked forward to "whale and dolphin watching." We were disappointed because we only saw 4 dolphins towards the end of the ride. It was a bit confusing as to where to check in and get my tickets. Be warned though, they do...continued

I was a little discouraged when I read reviews of this charter cruise on yelp.com but was ENCOURAGED when I read reviews on GOLDSTAR. ;) I couldn't pass the price up and figured it was a nice trip out to Balboa anyway. We were able to see one...continued

It was a beautiful day out on the water. A great way to spend my birthday. Saw a few dolphins but not as many and not for as long a time as the previous time I went out with Goldstar and Davey's Locker. This time they adhered to the schedule and...continued

It was a fun morning. We didn't see any whales, however, we did see plenty of the "common" dolphin, they were like little mini orcas. I don't remember ever seeing this type of dolphin, so that was cool. There is food and drinks on board, but...continued

It was the perfect day. I wasn't sure we were going to really see whales but they spotted one & got us up & close. We were able to watch the whale come up & down 3 times and was even really close!! It was truly a treat! We then went & found a...continued

No whales, but a huge school of dolphins that kept us entertained for quite a while. It was a beautiful day and I was with good friends. All of which made it nice. Also, they were having to hold our boat for a school group that was late, so put us...continued

Saw a lot of dolphins and follwed at least three whales for a long time. Saw one jump out of the water and got pretty close to a couple of the blue whales. And we saw the tail on the last one we saw! Very exciting! Remember to bring something...continued

The boat is very good. The Crew fabulous, very knowledgeable about the area & the sea life in the area. Worked at getting us the best experience possible w/ the dolphins & the 2 types of whales in the area. The Blue whales were being elusive,...continued

The boat was comfortable although lots of people stood the whole time, so be sure to get on boat right away. It was chilly towards the end of the 2hr trip. We didn't see any whales at all, but lots of dolphins. They gave us a voucher for half...continued

The crew of the boat were knowledgeable about dolphins and whales, and they did their best to enable us to see those animals. We saw lots of dolphins and one blue whale.

The cruise itself was really well done. Great captain and crew. Didn't see any whales but received a half-price ticket for repeat cruise which we will probably use. The parking in the area is a NIGHTMARE - even for a "beach community". We had...continued

The Ocean Explorer boat & crew were very nice. We went out of Davy's Locker, which partners with Newport Landing. We did not see any whales, dolpins or fish of any kind. We did see pelicans and seagulls and a beautiful shoreline. They gave us...continued

The trip was great. We unfortunately did not get to see any Whales. The guys worked really hard to find a nice sized White-side Dolphin pod for us.

There is luck involved with Whale Watching, and in our case we were blessed with 5 sightings. The crew was very good and knew how to look and relate interesting information. Had a good time. Worth doing

We didn't see any whales but lots of dolphins and sea lions. I'd like to also try their all day trip to Catalina where there is a higher liklihood of seeing whales. It was a sunny beautiful day and we all enjoyed it. I only wish there had been...continued
