The staff were great, we saw 2 humpback whales and around 300 dolphins, it was a great trip!
This trip was fantastic. The captain was knowledgable and entertaining
Awesome, we saw common dolphins, a humpback and I believe a minke whale from a distance, very kid friendly and the guys have you feel comfortable and safe, would definitely go again
It was a great trip! We saw a couple of humpback whales and many dolphins. This was a Father's Day surprise and it went very well daughter and dad were happy just to be out in the ocean and sighting whales and dolphins was perfect. Great day!
The whales put on a fantastic show, the crew was excellent, just a very enjoyable outing, ages 17-75 in our group and we all had a geat time.
Trip was amazing, we saw 11 whales and loads of dolphins, the ship captain was very friendly and knowledgable, as we were leaving the harbour a bottlenose dolphin was at the front of the boat, the captain made sure everybody got to see it instead of people pushing and shoving and blocking the view.
We were very lucky to see so many whales but it was a spectacular sight, would def recommend!!!!

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
it was nice, we got to see a huge Pod of dolphins but could not see any whales at all, probably because we did not have enough time to go look for whales
We had a wonderful time on our very first time out. The staff was great and would keep us updated on where to look and what we were looking at. Very knowledgeable.
The only thing I would add is some sea sick medicine in the full service galley. The poor non-sea worthy kids could have used something.
If we are ever back in the area we would definitely go again.
We had a fantastic time on our whale watching tour. We were lucky enough to come upon a super pod of dolphins , 4 whales and 5 seals! The staff was friendly and knowledable, the boat was clean. The only bummer was up top on our boat the center was wide open with very little seating around the edges so we sat on the floor. Luckily we brought a few towels with us to sit on. Other than that we enjoyed our tour!
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.
