We had a great time on our three hour whale watching adventure even though we didn't see any whales. The trip was just beautiful and the captain made sure we had an adventure even without sighting anything. Even though there is no guarantee, we were given vouchers to come back within a year since we didn't see anything, along with... More

The trip was incredible - we saw 6-7 blue whales up close and lots of bottle-nose dolphins, seals, and sea lions. The aquarium interns were fantastic. I will definitely be back again!

I booked this trip for my wife's birthday and have to admit I was unsure of what to expect as you are going out to sea in search of whales in their natural habitat ( not on tap in .aquarium for your entertainment) don't be anxious about seating outside as the boat fills up with people trying to get the...

We saw two types of dolphins and a whale. The interns from the aquarium were really nice. I would suggest placing speakers at the front of the boat as it is difficult to hear with the wind blowing and the guide speaking behind you.

I went out with very low expectations due to the unpredictable nature of, well nature. However I was presently surprised to see a number of whales and on the way back a pod of dophins. The boat was nice and fortunately I brought a jumper for the trip out to the ocean. I think it's important to remember a few... More

Did the tour with my family and had a great experience. Staff were friendly and helpful. It took about a hour into the voyage until we saw our first mammal then we saw pod after pod of dolphins! They swam next to the boat and the bottle nose dolphins even danced in our wake! We then saw a Fin Whale... More

Highly recommend even though there wasn't a whale sighting other than far off in the distance. There were however many dolphin sightings and the boat would slow down and let them swim around us. Great to get out on the open ocean too.

Numerous Dolphins , whales, sea lions and birds. Very comfortable ride. Very smooth. Newer boat. They had snacks and beer available for purchase on the boat. I was very pleased with everything we saw. There were dolphins everywhere and we saw maybe about 10 whales. All were feeding . A truly great experience .

Great tour friendly staff. Had a great time on the water. I was wondering if we were going to see any whales but we did see one. Even if I hadn't it well worth it.
