Saturday August 15, 2009 / 5:00pmEvening Whale & Dolphin Watching
How was your experience?
We did see a blue whale which was a sight on my bucket list. Were a few dolphins too. Although we left our start point earlier than we thought we needed to, we barely got to the boat on time because the 5 freeway was backed up for many, many miles even though no lane closures. Allow much more time to get there during the summer than you think you need. This boat is not the best layout for whale watching. Bow area is small and some people just won't share and let others in. If the whale isn't on your side of the boat, you might not see it. There isn't enough outdoor seating. This boat is much better for fishing trips. Also not a great place for small children and some people were rather rude in not managing their children very well and letting them shriek and get under foot. Crew was friendly.
