“Thrills & Sights "OH MY"”
Reviewed 11 June 2013

Had a blast rocketing around the open ocean checking out the otters and marine life. It's worth the $$!

Call in advance to make sure they have the boat in the water. And I mean at least a week if you can :-). But in the summer I'm sure they will be there all the time.

Don't expect a 5 star cruise....this is hold on, sit down, wind in your face ride. With moments of sight seeing. To be honest I asked for the "E" ticket ride and got it!!

So if you want the slow and ez version the captain will be sure to accomidate. Cheers!!

“Amazing, fun, affordable excursion!!!”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

Such a fun experience! Very personal with only 2 other people on the boat. Lee was our captain and was very informative, giving us history on the beaches. Saw seals, sea otters, and grey whales (up close)! It was awesome and only $25 a person! Call ahead for a reservation...we called the day before and went the next day. Don't miss this...it was alot of fun!:)

“great family fun adventure”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

We have been on seaweed express 2 times, and both times it was really a lot of fun. Beautiful coastline, up close and personal views of otters, dolphins, sea lions, sea birds, and many other sea life. On our trip we even saw a whale. The sea caves and pirates cove are interesting. The zodiac boat is fun, and if the customers are willing, the captain opens it up for some adventurous racing around. The captain loves his job and sharing his beautiful ocean and all it has to offer. He really tries hard to customize the tour based on customer desires, and current conditions - and definitely succeeds. Highly recommend this tour!
