The boat captain was very nice explaining what we were seeing and experiencing in terms of weather and also making a hard search for dolphins and whales

Unfortunately during our time on the water we did not see any wildlife other that birds and a couple of sea lions on a buoy. However the day and the ocean were beautiful and the couple of hours spent enjoying them was wonderful.

The boat ride was smooth and beautiful. Their narrative commentary was excellent. We saw a fabulous dolphin display with several large pods that included babies. It was awesome! We did not see any whales, but didn't miss them. On the way back, we saw sea lions. A wonderful trip!

We were able to buy professional photographs of the dolphins for only $20. I was in a wheelchair and they were very accommodating.

We have been limited to book on Wednesday and Thursday only. This is not very nice. The trip originally was going to Catalena island, but the destination was changed. I was very disappointed. Not too many fish within the trip.
