I read a ton of reviews on this cruise out of fishermans wharf. I have to tell you some people expect way too much for what this is.. we booked this tour with no expectations. these are sea animals and just the possibility of seeing a dolphin we were excited. I think we paid like $30 each for the wife... More

If you enjoy the water and fishing - it's great to go out on a day tour. I've been to this place multiple times growing up - and have always had a pleasant experience after fishing, it's become the requirement when visiting to go out for at least one day. During one visit, years ago, after getting a decent amount... More

We took the 930am boat ride to watch dolphins, it was great. Captain Harry and Anthony were so personable and accommodating they really wanted everyone to have a good time and see the dolphins. Captain Harry was so knowledgeable about the area and the dolphins. I would def recommend it is a must do when in the area.

We got a groupon for the whale and dolphin watching. We did not see any whales but we saw a stack of dolphins. The cruise was on time, the ship was comfortable and the Dolphins were gorgeous. It's a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

We took the 3 hour dolphin and whale watching tour with two 8 yo. They had a great time and although a bit warm we saw about 20 dolphins. No whales today but really not the time of year for them. Make sure you bring sunscreen, water and snacks for the kids. The boat does sell water and snacks for... More

Dillon and Captain Rick were fun and entertaining and they worked very hard for the entire day. I highly recommend Captain Rick and his... More

We had a great time and enjoyed a beautiful day out on the boat. We didn't see any large Dolphins, but did see plenty of little ones. Soo cute! Traveling in pods of five to six. They got close to the boat a couple times. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. The only bad advice we got was that the... More
