We had a great time on our trip. Saw lots of marine life: whales, otters, seals, cormorants and pelicans. Our host Chris was knowledgeable, fun and helpful. If you’re in the Morro Bay Area I would strongly recommend this trip

We did the harbor cruise with our teenaged children. We went out by the dock where the sea lions lay. We then went to another part of the bay where the captain allowed the passengers to drive the boat. This made my daughter very sea...More

Agree with above; if you go on a whale watching tour you will probably see whales. I went in June of this year and we saw many whales, and it was amazing.
