We went out on the Double Dolphin whale watching trip from Santa Barbara Sailing Centre after the Condor Express let us down. We were extremely pleased with the professionalism and enthusiasm of the crew members, Captain Kyle and Quincy. The price was also reasonable at $30 for 2.5 hours. We were well looked after and advised about safety and offered blankets if we got cold. There were also drinks available to purchase on board. There was a naturalist volunteer on board who made the trip was very informative and we saw quite a few whales and even had a close-up encounter. We really enjoyed it and would recommend the Double Dolphin whale watching trip if you are in Santa Barbara.
