The whole experience was great my children loved it.

Even though we didn't see any whales, lots of dolphins, we enjoyed the boat ride - just a lot of fun.

They were prompt, restrooms were clean, the overall boat was clean-that's important.

Seeing LOTS of dolphins.

We did not see any whales, but for the price of only $13 per person though TravelZoo, it was well worth the boat trip and seeing hundreds of dolphin made the trip even more worth the money!

Although we saw no whales, our guide was very friendly and gave us a free ticket to come back. We saw so e sea lions so I guess that was good, but the beauty of the ocean was awesome!!
