Lovely boat, perfectly safe for our baby and two year old (boat safely accommodated our stroller and others). I appreciated the sitting inside option; that area was large and clean with refreshments avail. to purchase. They had an expert from the aquarium on board, which was helpful. We saw three fin whales. Just under 3 hours total. Bathroom facilities were... More

I really liked the cruise, specially because we choosed a groupon deal; so with a good price we enjoyed the sea, whales and dolphins!! My son was a bit scared at first; but I bought him a lollipop on deck and he enjoyed the rest of the cruise!!

Our experience with Harbor Breeze was amazing! We had a groupon for the admission discount, but it would be worth full price. We saw a whale breach in front of us, and saw a mother and baby whale playing nearer the coast as well. The trip was well narrated by a member of the staff of Aquarium of the Pacific... More

We had a great time on the new Triumphant boat with "stadium seating" in the front of the boat. There is comfortable seating all around the boat with cushions. We went on a Blue Whale watch in the morning and saw 3 blue whales not far from shore. If you "like" Harbor Breeze on Facebook you will get their daily... More

Our trip out with Harbor Breeze was sensational!! Truly an experience we will never forget. The whales were a little thin on the ground but this was completely made up for by the presence of a mega pod of dolphins!! Hundreds to be seen playing in the wake of the boat and all around us. We chartered a boat to... More

We went on a blue whale watching tour. We saw literally thousands of dolphins, many of which were swimming/jumping along side of and in front of the boat. We saw many fin whales and several blue whales. At the end of the tour, a blue whale actually came up under our boat and fed right in front of the boat!!... More

This was a perfect length (2.5 hours) boat excursion with our kids. Plenty of seating for all guests and great views from any part of the boat. We saw dolphins, grey whales, sea lions, and much more. The kids were thrilled and it'll be an experience they'll always remember.

Within 30 minutes we spied our first whales after having first seen huge schools of dolphins. With staff and volunteers from the Aquarium of the Pacific aboard, plenty was to be learned. An excellent value!

Took the lady whale watching in early January and because of its high TA ratings, chose Harbor Breeze. Picked up a groupon deal to get us both on the 2 1/2 hr tour for $50, which saved a few dollars. Saw a good amount of dolphins and was lucky enough to see a whale for probably 15 minutes not far... More

First time to go on whale watching. We paid $35, and got on bigger boat named Christopher for 2 1/5 hr trip off the coast of Long Beach/ Palos Verdes. Saw big size dolphins ,fin whales and gray whale. Although we saw them from a distance, still, it was a very exciting moment for all of us who witnessed these... More
