We loved seeing so many whales, as well as hundreds of dolphins, birds and sea lions.

boat was comfortable. the captain made sure that we had a good experience by getting the boat in a good position to see the whales.

Seeing several Whales and the crew on the boat were very helpful with my husband who is handicapped. I thought I had printed the tickets but I didn't print the page with the pin numbers that they needed so the women who worked at check in took the time to look them up for me on my phone and was very nice went out of her way to be helpful

Wish they had a place to wait that was shaded or had some chairs. We got there at 3:30 for the 5:00pm tour and couldn't check in till 4:00. Explained we had a party of 7 with a handicapped man and 1 elderly women they said seating was 1st come 1st serve so I stood at the dock opening for one and a half hours to ensure they got seats.

Just to get away from the heat and it has been years since I have been whale watching being a California native.
