A wonderful experience. The tour was narrated through out! It made all the difference in the world! We saw sea lions, tons of dolphins and 2 whales. It was a great first experience. The boat was immaculate! There was a lady on board we sat with that was on her 30th whale watching tour. That saws it all!

After spending a few hours at the Aquarium of the Pacific, we then boarded for the 3:00 cruise. My son (13) was not looking forward to the three hour tour at all and I have to say he really ended up enjoying it. We were able to see dolphins, sea lions and three different whale sightings. I was amazed at... More

We did some online research and we decided to book our Whale/Dolphin Watching excursion with Harbor Breeze. We went out on the 3 hour, 12 pm, Blue Whale Watching Cruise. We booked our tickets online and in advance. Apparently, there are some online coupons/discounts to be had, but I did not find them in time, and you can not cancel... More

This was a very nice attraction to spend some time doing. I'm not sure exactly how many different whales we saw, but there were like 15-20 appearances above the water. They would blow some water and surface then back down. We saw two whale tails come out and go back down. Pretty cool experience. The boat was very nice, clean... More

We had a wonderful time on the whale tour. The entire process from buying our Groupon to boarding the boat was incredibly easy. Their customer service is top-notch. The crew was very professional and concerned about safety the entire trip. We were lucky to see a blue whale and her baby. We also saw a group of playful dolphins. I... More

This trip was very good. We spotted two Blue whales and saw them blow many times. I captured photos of tail fins as they dove. We then had a questionable immature white shark circle close to the boat twice. I say questionable since the naturalist from the Aquarium of the Pacific and the boat staff thought it might have been... More

Wonderful and educational adventure on Whale watching trip. Great cost, especially during the week. Captian Carl and all members of the crew were above and beyond. Naturalist from Aquarium staff very educational and spent extra time with you if you wanted the education. we saw 4 Whales spout during the trip, Dolpins follwed the boat and dived in and out...

We got to see a lot of great wildlife on this cruise and the catamaran was really nice. We sat outside up top and it was great. We got to see tons of dolphins and two fin whales (no blue whales but I wasn't expecting that with the season regardless of their marketing). Make sure you bring a sweater and... More

Loved the friendly crew ... but mostly was blown away by getting to see a blue whale. There are no guarantees but even if you don't see a whale the cruise is lovely ... and we also got to see both common dolphins + seals. Fabulous!! :) I didn't get a chance to see the aquarium as well ... but... More

We had been on whale watching trips before and the boats had communication with other whale watching boats so they could locate sea life during the trip. With our past experience, I wasn't prepared to spend 2 and a half hours on the boat and see about 3 dolphins. The boat we were on was very clean and comfortable but... More
