Newport beach was beautiful and we had a chance to watch whale (just a black back) and sea lions.

The ship was not clean enough to enjoy.

Jan 27, 2015 Eun Soon California, United States

Luckily, our Captain was able to spot some whales and we spent a good deal of time watching them. Weather was gorgeous - what a great way to spend an afternoon!

Customer service in front office is lacking...bordering on rude, but we still had a great time as I had already expected sub-par service after reading other reviews. You do need to make reservations, arrive early (1 hr prior to your scheduled time), and be prepared to pay for parking. We were able to find street parking for free but it depends upon the day/season you go. The activity itself was worth it but I would probably try other providers before I returned to Newport Landing.
