Short on time - this is the tour for you. Short on cash - this is the tour for you. Needing a change of pace - this is the mini tour for you. So much fun getting out on the bay, learning a bit of history, seeing seeing flora/fauna/sealife and...getting to feed the fish from this fun/quirky sub seat tour.... More

I took my son whale watching last year and we had a great time although the whales weren't really cooperative. This year we got lucky and found two whales immediately! It was a great experience. If you are prone to car or sea sickness please take your Dramamine the night before. We were on chioppy water for three hours and... More

The staff on the boat knew just where to find whales and we saw them at least 50 times I bet. the whales were putting on a great show and the staff was able to interpret what the whales were up to. It was a cool, foggy day but we were all so excited the weather didn't matter. Easily one... More

The tour was nice and relaxing and we were able to see sea lions, sea otters, and a harbor seal. The staff is very friendly and eager to answer your questions. The underwater deck was somewhat of a let down, but it was a nice way to kill an hour and not too expensive. If I could do it over... More

We took the 45 minute tour of the bay and really enjoyed ourselves . We got to see the sea lions up close and feed fish and see them from underwater. The driver had a sense of humor. Good way to spend an hour and good price

We were in a small boat with maybe 6 other travellers. The weather was perfect. After a slow start, we saw multiple grey whales, some of them breeching, sea otter, dolphin and sea lions. The captain and crew were friendly and knowledgeable. Without doubt we were lucky, but this company is highly recommended.

We made a plan at the last minute to do a sub-sea tour for our kids. Since I was in SLO, I called to enquire about the availability. The guys suggested we came 10 minutes before and he has us reserved for the noon tour, which we wanted to do. We reached just in time and got into the boat... More

we took the sub-sea tour and saw NO fish.. and the operator was not keen to even try . It was just another short boat ride in the bay. Not worth the time/ money!

Not our first time whale watching, but first time on a small boat and no whales spotted. The family pod of dolphins was priceless and so enjoyable. There were hundreds of them popping in and out of the water. Coming back to the harbor we saw lots of cute floating otters and loud sun-bathing seals. It was a very foggy... More

Friendly crew, did their best to find whales and dolphins, they contacted other vessels as soon as we left harbour. We saw a huge school of short nose common dolphins, amazing creatures, my highlight of a great holiday!! Plus we saw, albeit from a distance, humbacks diving and breaching, amazing stuff and we would recommend anyone to do this tour.... More
