Nice cruising vessel with informative and friendly crew. We had great weather and we saw several "Gray Whales", and at a long distance one "Fin Whale" and one "Humpback Whale" If you have never seen whales in the ocean, you will enjoy this cruise;...continued

So much fun. Saw several whales and dolphins. The captain did a great job finding the whales for us and explaining how whales live. Very informative. Beautiful day! Would go again!

Unfortunately we didn't see whales. It was terrifice getting out on the ocean for a bit. The Navy was doing ops and the dolphins were plentiful. The nice thing was we got "whale checks" for a future whale watching or harbor cruise. Highly...continued

We went on the tour without knowing that it was the last week of the whale watching tours (4/20). It was a PERFECT weather day with only mild swells. We had 3 volunteers from the San Diego Natural History Museum on board that really enhanced the...continued

Well we picked a fantastic day - MLD day 2011. The weather was phenomenal, in the high 70’s by the time we landed at 1pm. The whales cooperated very nicely as we have 6 sightings (anywhere from 100 to 400 yards depending on the situation)....continued

Captain Bill and crew went out of their way to show you a good time. We saw lots of whales. I especially liked the way the captain anticipated where the whales were and would be. He didn't crowd or harrass them. Just respectfully approached them,...continued

A fun adventure staring with the first spoting of a whale flume to the last whale tail. Saw mumerous graey whales and scores of frolicing dolphins.
Don't forget, the water gets choppy so wear sensible shoes. If you get sea sick, use a patch...continued

I went on the 930am cruise with my family and had a great time. We saw 2 gray whales after a bit of a wait (lots of spouts and flukes)but then were able to follow them for the better part of an hour. The captain made sure both sides of the ship...continued

Was so much fun, we saw a whale jump out of the water and twist in the air! The boat was great, large with many decks and a snack bar.

We had to go out 12 miles to see the first whales and the swells in the afternoon were really big. Most of the passengers were turning green so be prepared for that.
But the captain made sure we got to see plenty of whales. The first group...continued
