Friendly and knowledgeable staff!

I think an hour of seeing the 3 whales come up for air about six times is enough.

Nice boat, Very informative captain and terrific sightings,

Whale watching tour was outstanding. The weather was perfect. We saw 7 or 8 gray whales, dolphins, sea lions, etc. Boat wasn't overcrowded.

We were charged an additional $5 per ticket once we got on the boat. Maybe I didn't read the small print. I wasn't aware of the additional charge.

So beautiful out on the ocean and we saw about 7 whales! It was a breathtaking experience.

The people who run it are great - friendly and knowledgeable.

Staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were quite lucky and saw a lot of whales very close to the boat. Would definitely go back again.
