being out in the sea. seeing some whales. super helpful and friendly staff who does everything to provide a positive experience.

many thanks to the wonderful staff. the only reason that i would not come back (any time soon) is that i was violently and unexpectedly seasick during the trip. i would definitely recommend it to all my friends!

We didn't see any whale, hundreds of dolphins but no whale, they did not even bring it up that there was a lack of whales today or something. Don't call it whale watching :-)

Being out on a boat was quite fun - very clear skies and the staff did try / was friendly.

No whales were found, and people were puking over the side constantly (to a humorous extent). Even with that, enjoyed being out on a boat with a beautiful view of the Santa Monica / Venice / MDR coastline. 3 hours is a bit much though, we were ready to be done after 2, especially with not having any whale sightings. Opinion: If no whale sightings is a typical occurrence, then this activity shouldn't be offered.

Everyone on borad the boat was kind, friendly and knowledgeable. We saw lots of dolphins—no whales, alas—but altogether it was a very enjoyable experience.

The GPS address they give you as your driving destination is off: it directs you to a power plant across the street, which is confusing. Would be nice to know ahead of time that there is a fuel fee that you can only pay once you board and in cash. We didn't have any on us and had to run out to an ATM at the very last minute.
