Was not impressed with this trip. We were instructed to arrive by 1pm for the 1:30 tour. I read you can purchase sandwiches and snacks on their deck before the tour, so we arrived around 12:30 to have lunch beforehand. Well, Capt. Dave never showed up until 2pm; said he was caught in traffic. Once the boat took off a photographer started going around asking if you would like your picture taken for $20....I thought, why?? The only pictures we wanted on this trip were our own shots of a possible whale sighting! Dave took us to the dolphin site, where we saw many dolphins, they were all around the boat. It was nice to watch them swimming along and jumping from time to time around the boat and in the distance. I like seeing dolphins.... but it seemed like we were at the dolphin site a little too long. We could see Dave trying to locate a whale with his binoculars with no luck. Although, after a few minutes, he stated that someone contacted him and said there was a whale a few miles away, that he would venture out there, as long as it was okay with everyone on board. So we started moving at a faster clip. Several minutes later he said the whale is now moving further away, so we had to turn back since we were running out of time. We understand there's no guarantee of seeing whales, but I thought he spent way too much time with the dolphins. After we docked back at the pier he brought out his books & dvd and started with the sales pitch, which to me is always a real turn off after an excursion; in this case whether we seen whales or not.
