While we went on the whale watching trip they told us that so far there had not been any whales but we would see dolphins and other sea life. We saw Sea Lions and many pods of dolphins. The crew answered all of our questions and were very friendly. The crew took time when we did see the dolphins for us to be able to take pictures and enjoy them! You could buy snacks and drinks on board, but we chose not to. You could also choose to sit in the shade or the sun for your trip! It was a fun day and we enjoyed ourselves!

We really enjoyed playing with the dolphins. Or at least that's what it felt like. It was nice that the they gave us lots of information about the critters that we saw. It would be nice to have someone on board who knows something about the birds too.

Fun Fun Fun. Had the best time!. We didn't see any whales but it is probably too early in the year for that. The boat was very clean and we saw a ton of dolphins. It was a great afternoon and I will definitely go back later in the year

No whales, but saw a huge pod of hundreds of dolphins. Friendly professional crew. Nice way to spend a couple hours in the afternoon if you’re by the Oceanside docks.
