Dolphins were amazing! The narrator was very knowledgeable. I would’ve liked to see whales though. The humpbacks didn’t show up.
Waste of time. No WHALE
, Jun 2022
No whale to watch. Spending 3 hrs just to watch few dolphins which anyone can watch at other places,I feel is a waste of time. Not recommended if you are planning to watch whales
Not a good experience
, May 2022
Overcrowded. The boat just goes to and fro near the shore causing it to sway constantly and so many people were throwing up. No guaranteed sight of whales. All we saw was a few baby dolphins which was good but the 3 hour trip in the sun just to watch a few was a waste of time. To me, the worst part was some of crew members were very rude to passengers. I didn’t have a problem but one of the guys was very rude to a couple with a toddler. It is ok to advice them once or twice but nitpicking on them was so annoying even to strangers like me. I would not recommend this place. It is waste of time and money.
Save your $55

It was 3 hours close to the beach where we were staying, we never went far enough to see the whale 🐋. Save some money and just stand at the beach and watch the dolphins. Staff was rude. I don’t have kids but this is not for kids it will get bored. Not music, not entertaining at all.

We saw dolphins 🐬 but no whales 🐳. The tour was a little bit to long for all of us 4. If you get motion sick don’t go on it. I got very nauseous and several ppl threw up.

Very reasonably priced! The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable! Our boat was lucky enough to find a whale and stay alongside for a while. It was beautiful. Length of time is also perfect! 3 hours for a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Sleeping whales!

Nice cruise
, Sep 2021
Our 3 hour cruise was truly enjoyable - just don’t rely on seeing whales. This is my second trip and I still haven’t spotted any! I do wish they would offer a voucher for a return trip if no whales are spotted… Still, if you want to enjoy a beautiful day on the ocean - this is the trip for you.
We didnt see none of wales non of dolphins

Seeing the pods of dolphins and the information provided by the captain. Sorry we did not see any whales but was informed it was the wrong time of the year.
A day to relax
, Aug 2021
We enjoyed the history of the area and info about the dolphins. Seeing the dolphin pods was fun. We got to just sit and soak in the beautiful scenery…
