Beautiful day at sea! We saw 4 whales, although we only got about 100 yards from the nearest, and could only see the spout and rolling backs of the grey whales. The captain and Museum employees were very informative and the ship was clean and...continued

Even though it was a little over cast, it was a wonderful trip. My 10yr old grandson had a great trip. He was entertained 90 percent of the time. We were just about on our way back when we finally saw whales, several of them and the captain...continued

Great experience. We didn't see any whales, sadly, but we found a pod of thousands of dolphins. It was amazing. They were very playful, swimming with the boat and jumping and performing for us. We also saw some rare Rhesos (sp?) dolphins. And we...continued

Had a great time. Enjoyed the Hornblower crew and ship. Saw a whale and some dolphins. Of course, we would like to have seen more whales and more dolphins, but maybe they didn't read their email? Oops. Typical American, expecting them to speak our...continued

I saw whales, flukes, time after time.
The staff was informative, and showed us baline from a whale (my spelling is probably wrong), but this trip was a perfect decision.
The boat was more comfortable than the other company I went with last...continued

I took my in-laws. We went on the 9:30 trip. It was really well done. They have great volunteers that are on board to answer any questions about the whales. The captain did the narration and seemed to love his job. We learned about the area in...continued

It was a beautiful trip, worth getting up early on a Saturday. We saw a number of sitings, and the weather was beautiful. We were given a heads up on May trips to see Blue whales on their migration. I will go again.

It was a gorgeous day on the water. The Capt. was knowledgable about many things about the area and the sea animals. We saw lots of dolphins and sea lions but the whales were alluding us. Just as he said he must turn and go back to SD he...continued

It was the experience of a lifetime. We saw two whales and a "super pod" of Dolphins. The dolphins numbered well over 1,000 and were jumping and spinning in the air. Really cool. And one of the whales that we saw breeched....6 times. Completely...continued

It was wonderful seeing common dolphins and a fin whale out in the ocean habitat! Quite wonderful! Due to most people wanting to be on the top deck, viewing was blocked for a few of us. Even so, it was quite magical.
