My wife, daughters and I loved the trip. The captain was very informative and we saw 3 fin whales and pods of playful dolphins.

Well worth the trip and the fair was priced right.

Saw lots of whales the day we went. The captain and the crew made it fun and helped you become whale-watcher experts. Very relaxing and the weather was fantastic for being the first week in January. Would definitely do this again!

The boat is large and fairly comfortable and they have several volunteers from the San Diego Natural History Museum to explain what you're seeing and answer any questions. I would recommend to a friend.

We saw 6 gray whales spouting and whacking their flukes, three California sea lions lounging on a buoy, and hundreds of common dolphins. My six and eight-year-old grandsons thought it was awesome. The pod of dolphins surrounded our boat, and...continued

We saw six whales and one of them was breaching. The captain included interesting facts about San Diego and the whales, and they had representatives from the Natural History Museum. What a nice outing!

We spotted a whale with its calf. The mother came out straight about three consecutive times and we were able to see about 1/3 of its body. It was the most amazing thing I've ever seen! We also saw sea lions, but no dolphins.
The back of the...continued

Comfortable vessel with pretty good inside windowed seating as well as open deck seating on two levels. There is an informative narration on the local sights as you exit the bay. They did well to spot and get to the whales or other sea life...continued
