This was a great time! I can't wait to go again. We saw a great amount of whale and the captain was very informative. The service was great.

This was a GREAT event. We saw whales and took photos, but also saw some military training exercises that were pretty interesting. It was a good sized boat, nice, and clean. The staff was friendly. This is something I would enjoy doing again. ...continued

This was a wonderful event per my parents! This was a surprise for them from myself(their daughter), it was their birthday! They loved it. I am very happy I choose the whale watching cruise.

This was a reasonably fun outing. I booked without checking the size of the boat (my mistake) and was disappointed at how large and crowded she was. We did see a couple of whales, several dolphins, sea lions, and lots of birds (pelicans,...continued

This was a delightful way to spend a morning. The trip was smooth, weather perfect and the Captain's commentary was very good as he explained the whale's migration and nature. We saw at least 10 whales and were not disappointed as others who had...continued

Took a sister who was visiting from Tenn. We saw a large pod of whales all sizes. It was thrilling. We also saw a smaller bunch. We all enjoy the trip. Wish we could have gotten a little closer to the whales, but the Captain was very safe for...continued

Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales. We did catch several dolphins. The captain, first mate & the docents were all very nice and knowledgeable and we did receive vouchers to come back next season.

We also booked the American Express package...continued

Very exciting yet relaxing. The crew and volunteers were very informative. The captain made every effort to make sure we saw as many whales as possible by radioing other ships. As a result, we saw a pod of whales. An experience I will never...continued

We didn't see any whales but we were given a "whale check" to come back. Being on the ocean was wonderful anyway.

We enjoyed the cruise. Parking may be limited if cruise ships are in port. Dress for cool weather.

We got to see a few whales and dolphins. Boat was very comfortable. Great staff provided fun hands-on stuff for kids. A bit cold - bring gloves and hat and jacket. Well worth it.

We had a family group ranging from a five year old to almost 80. Everyone enjoyed this experience. We saw whales but the hundreds of bottlenose dolphins that the captain gently guided us through were almost a religious experience. I cannot begin...continued

We had a good time but did not see many whales. The sightings were so poor on that trip that they gave us "whale vouchers" to use on another trip - good for one year, which was nice. SM

We only got to see the backs of a couple whales but saw many bottlenosed dolphins. The boat is very nice and the staff were great - it was a fun experience just being with friends and on the ocean.
