Very nice experience. We only got to see the whales from far away but was amazing to see these creatures. Dolphins are a great plus and incredible. Personel was kind and very well train. Food in the boat is good and with lots to choose from. Extra tip: If you come by car, there's only two locations where you can park for more than 2 hours (tour is about 3). Arrive early so you don't have to run to board the boat.
didnt see any whales but lots of dolphins and sea lions very good trip and nice friendly staff on board .
excellent trip well worth doing! We got a public transport bus from anaheim to newport bay for this trip and it was excellent. we saw hundreds of dolphin, two blue whale and a beluga whale.
First rate in every way. Friendly staff, nice boat, and of course, a beautiful show by the whales.
Nothing to complain about here!
Totally amazing trip! We were very lucky to see 2 blue whales. The whales stayed up for 10 minutes at a time. The skipper of the boat was able to get right by them so we had plenty of photo opportunities. To be fortunate enough to see whales in their natural habitat was definitely a highlight of our holiday.
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.
It was awesome! I did not get to see any whales, but i enjoyed the dolphins.
Great cruise. We saw whales, dolphins and sea lions. The boat and staff were great
Bought 2 tickets but only able to use one due to no available afternoon public parking for 1pm tour. Drove around for over an hour. Beaches were full. Sent my guest only. However, my guest enjoyed the whale excursion and did see 2 whales together close up so boat portion was a success. To early.
Nice tour, we were lucky and saw several whales during the trip
Great trip. Didn't see whales but saw about 500 dolphins. Great crew!
We had a good time and got to see seals, dolphins and whale during the cruise.
