Great Guide!

The man narrating the trip was very well educated, interesting to listen to, and really made the trip enjoyable. I would happily bring others on this quick, but thorough, tour.

Due to a fully booked ship at balboa we went over to Long beach instead. Great surroundings and a ship in good condition, great crew members. We boarded with a party of 6 persons and one in a wheel chair. I was surprised about the service onboard, they told us where to stand with our wheel chair to see most... More

First time on the whale tour as it was fully booked last year when I visited. The staff was very friendly and full of information. We saw a few sperm whales and a dolphin. A memory I won't forget thank you

We were looking for a way to burn some time before our evening flight, when we stumbled across this 45 minute harbor tour. It was only $12, so I wasn't really expecting much, boy was I wrong. The boat was comfortable, and the captain was extremely knowledgeable. We got to see sea lions sunning themselves, and a closeup experience to... More

We had gone to the aquarium and booked a Whale watching tour at 3 PM. Since we got done with the aquarium sooner then we thought we thought for $12 a person we would go on the harbor tour before our whale watching tour. The harbor tour was great! The captain gave us the history of the harbor as we... More

I took the last cruise of the day at dusk (6:00 cruise) and thoroughly enjoyed the sunset tour. 45 minutes on the water and the captain provided some good narrative but not too much. Saw some sea lions which was fun. They also offer beer and snacks. Bring a jacket because of the harbor breeze. The $12.00 fare was well... More

What a great value tour! $12 and 45mins, well worth it. Capt Tom Beardsley provided and extremely informative commentary answering any questions we had. He included great information regarding history, science and nature of Long Beach Harbor. Very much enjoyed the short cruise and views. Well worth it!

we took the tour of the harbor and learned many things about the area from the captain of the boat. It is a nice tour even though we didn't see much sea life. We did see some sea lions.

Part of our day included both whale watching and visiting the aquarium. We selected the 12pm tour. It was a beautiful blue sky day with calm seas. The boat was not over crowded so we had plenty of room to move around and observe seal, porpoise, and whales. Our onboard Naturalist, from the Long Beach Aquarium, did a great job... More
