Great way to spend an afternoon

I'm a local so I've been on the boat several times. It's an older boat and has a lot of character. I love sitting (mostly standing) near the front bow. I've been on trips where... read more

I'm a local so I've been on the boat several times. It's an older boat and has a lot of character. I love sitting (mostly standing) near the front bow. I've been on trips where we've seen a dozen whales in two hours and some trips where we saw none. It's all good. Even if there are no whales around,... More

Expect a friendly afternoon, relatively calm waters, relatively warm weather, convivial shipmates. It's not a big boat. It's not a fast boat. But it gets you there, and the captain knows where to go to find active surface sea-life. The fact that as soon as you exit the harbor you're motoring over the deep Redondo Undersea Canyon certainly helps to... More

we didn't know what to expect. The crew was very knowledgeable. The water was rough that day and still we spotted whales. In fact one breached. Spectacular.

Our trip was uncharacteristically rainy and cold, but the crew made the most of it. We saw dolphins and sea lions, and had a great time on the ocean. When we go back, I'll take another cruise on Voyager without a doubt.

The crew is knowledgeable, the boat ride is smooth, the view from the boat to the shore is breathtaking even if you live here. We have gone four times, the whales and dolphins have been abundant this year so your odds are good. Even if you do not experience any whales or dolphins the coastal ride is worth the time.

We had a 4 hour boat trip looking for whales on a blisteringly hot day in September. Boat was not that crowded and mainly fellow Europeans. We sat on the top deck - both to get the best views and also to experience the ocean swell. Boat crew clearly were both very professional with their boat handling but also knew... More

For only 25$ you can spend 4 hours on the Ocean, see some whales, dolphins and sea lions! Sounds like a good deal! The crew is amazing and very informative so we learnt many things! However, there could be one big problem - sea sickness! Several people from our group suffered, I was one of them, so most of the... More

Enjoyable 45" cruise along Redondo Beach coastline to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Clean boat, very friendly crew, affordable and no reservations required for trip that leaves on the hour. Little ones were invited to help steer the boat which is always a big time!
