Worth every cent! - I really enjoyed seeing the dolphin pods and the mother and calf fin whales! This was my first time to the Pacific Ocean and it was very awesome to take a trip off the coast.

Great time! Worth the money! - Had an amazing time searching for dolphins and whales! We saw the tail of a grey whale at the end lol but saw about 200 dolphins throughout the entire tour. It was a little chilly but the crew made it fun and had a ton of knowledge to share. Would highly recommend!

A beautiful experience - Loved this tour. Definitely one for the memory books. Having a marine biologist narrate and explain things was excellent. Seeing all the nature from a different perspective was a beautiful experience. Of course the best part was actually seeing the dolphins and whales on the journey.

dissapointing - Only a few dolphins were seen, froma a distance. The ship departed half an hour after the scheduled hour and the trip was boring and tather uncomfortable. Not a comment during the sailing excepting when the dolphins were seen. I understand it is not the best season to see whales but the crew could have done more to compensate that.
