We've been out with these folks numerous times over the years. These professionals really are very, very adept at locating the whales and getting to their location without scaring them away. When we have out of town visitors, we pay to go out with Voyager, even though we could take our own boat out instead. To date, we've NEVER been... More

This tour is hosted by naturalists so you get lots of great information. We saw several grey whales plus some other interesting sea life. Don't forget the sunscreen because you are out on the water every minute of the three hours promised.

Great crew, nice boat. Easy access to whales and pelagic birds at a reasonable cost. Was first in line to get best spot on boat for photography and was disappointed to have large group of smokers end up sitting nearby. Was surprised as I have never been on a wildlife watching boat (Ecuador, Trinidad, Costa Rica, New Zealand, USA [Washington,... More

We enjoyed our 3 hour morning excursion on the Voyager very much. On my Bucket List was "See a whale" Check! They don't guarantee that a whale will be seen so we were fortunate to see two pretty close to the ship! What a thrill! Lots of dolphin too! The crew was great and made us feel very welcome. Will...

The only thing I would advise is to take dramamine before doing this. The experience is so great you don't want to miss it by being sick. Even if you don't noramlly get motion sick the waves can be rough. I wish the ticket sales people would have advised us of this or sold dramamine at the counter when we... More

A great afternoon, saw a number of Fin Whales. Naturalists onboard provide information that adds value to the trip. Excellent value $12 per person as we are 55.

We only had a couple of days in LA but the signs up at Redondo Beach stated that there were Blue Whales in the area so we decided to take this trip. We took the afternoon trip on a Monday in August, The cost was $15 which is very reasonable for 3 hour voyage. The boat is capable of taking... More
