We went on the afternoon dolphin/whale watch. It was nice because it wasn't crowded and we saw a lot of dolphins. We didn't see any whales but they said we likely wouldn't at the beginning of the trip. We called the morning of to make reservations - we tried calling the day prior but kept receiving an answering machine. I... More

Within 30 minutes of leaving the dock, we saw dozens of dolphins very close to the boat. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. We loved it!

After a 30 minute ride out to the ocean we spotted several groups of dolphins which the captain got close to for some excellent opportunities to get photos. We then travelled quite a distance when we learned that a humpback whale had been spotted by another boat. We then spent enough time there that everyone was able to get photos... More

We purchased a groupon, so that made the trip very reasonable. We saw many dolphins including a cute mother and baby! The boat was a great size, with places to sit in the shade or sun. My 6 year daughter loved it! We were out for two hours and it was a calm relaxing trip. The reason for 4 stars... More

We took the 3 hour tours - started raining before we left but then turned into a beautiful day - the captain made sure we had our 3 hours at sea - no whales but lots of dolphins

Our 3 hour tour was cut short because of the high winds, they called the day before and told us this might happen and offered to change our reservation. The water was very choppy and people got wet. We were warned! We saw lots of dolphins and had a blast. I wish I would have gotten the names of two... More

I purchased a groupon before out trip to the ocean. I called Friday to make reservations since it recommended reservations at least one day in advance. A man answered asked when I would like to come I said Monday for a 3hour tour and that I had a groupon. He put us down and told us to arrive by 1-1:15,... More

My husband and I did the dolphin/whale watching. The entire ride was 3 hours. We saw a lot of dolphins, and knew spotting humpback whales were going to be slim. The captain did point out to a few local spots (lighthouses, beaches,...) Once we spotted a few dolphins the captain did try to get close and some where so close... More

We've done a few different dolphin/whale watch trips over the past few years and this has been the best. All the staff was extremely friendly. Captain knew there have been whale sightings so he made it a mission for us to find it - and he did. Such an amazing experience. I recommend sitting in the front of the boat... More

I went out on a half day deep sea fishing cruise (rod and reel rental included). There were three deckhands and one captain aboard. While the deckhands were knowledgable with the rod, reels, bait, fish, sharks, etc. I was unimpressed with some of the actions of the youngest deckhand. While we out fishing the young man tossed numerous items overboard... More
