Excellent. I had another your while on Catalina trip but this is cheaper in smaller boat. The boat ride was ok but less no of people on board. Go on weekday so it won't be too crowded

This was excellent and we saw a blue whale that day albeit from a distance. Make sure you have a good zoom. Dolphins surrounded the boat as well. Make sure that you know how far Newport Beach is from your accommodation as it was a very expensive and long taxi ride to get there. Transport isn't included. Well worth it and allow loads of time as the beach is wonderful. Beautiful place. We loved it. Crew of boat great.

Friendly staff. We didnt see any whales but lots of other sea life. There was coastal fog on our day but they can control the weather!

The thrill of watching whales and Dolphins from so close makes the tour worth every money you spend on tickets and gratuities. We saw almost 4 or 5 whales and hordes of Dolphins.

Did not get to see any whales which was my main desire. Overall the experience to be miles in ocean and to see dolphins in that atmosphere was breath taking my 1st experience. A nice boat ride. :)
