“Fun Experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

There were 3 couples in our group, the sun was shining and we were off. We were told that they had reports of a gray whale in the area. So we were going to go see if it could be seen. All 3 couples were on the bow of the boat with a family of 4 (as there were no seats left) and it would have been nice if there would have been some sort of notice of what to expect. Several people were not holding on to the rails tight enough or at all, and as we hit the waves leaving the harbor one person almost fell it's a good thing he had someone that was holding on to grab or he would have been a goner. We did see a gray several times and it was an awesome. We would definitely go again. Can't say we had good or bad service ... as there was not really any interaction, with the crew. So if you are looking to be catered to this may not be the boat for you.

Our first time out on the ocean was a whale watching trip on their boat. So much fun! The price was great. The boat was not at all crouded. We had a ball!

“deep sea fishing”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This really was the highlight of our trip. Was not cheap, but well worth the money. The boat captain was great. The fish were not biting very well and you could tell he was getting frustrated because he wanted us all to catch something. The seas were pretty rough and he was very clear on safety precautions. I have recommended this place to a couple of friends
