A must do experience - fantastic.
The wooden sailing ship is amazing and we followed a whale for ages which was a beautiful sight. It was much appreacted that the crew took professional photos which they published much better than I could have managed which allowed me to sit back and just enjoy the experience and enjoy the photos on my return. Being out on the water was really relaxing and I wouldnt hesitate to book this again!
The museum was inter sting and had lots to look at and climb aboard. I especially liked the Star of India which had a wealth of information displayed below and The Surprise from Mastercand Commander a film I really love.

We had one of those perfect San Diego days on a beautiful ship. The captain and crew were friendly and sailed the ship perfectly. The crew found a Blue Whale floating on the surface to everyone's delight.

A great trip. We saw a mega pod of dolphins. As far as the eye could see dolphins swimming around the boat.

We were lucky enough to find ourselves in the middle of what the guide called a megapod of dolphins. Hundreds of dolphins jumping and feeding. It was wonderful,

This trip a must for locals and tourists. We live in the area and have whale watched before, but this boat and crew made the experience spectacular. We saw a lot of whales and one of the crew shared history and pointed out things about the history of San Diego and the US Navy sites that we had never heard before. This is a must for something different and a good relaxing informative experience.

I would absolutely recommend taking this tour if you are in San Diego during the whale migrating season. The crew was amazing and took us to several spots to see the whales. At one point we saw a group of 5 whales. I wish the tour had been longer!

Al was fantastic! The whole crew was friendly and shared their sailing knowledge with us. We saw a humpback, dolphins and many blue whales. So fun!

This was a wonderful trip. The passenger numbers were below capacity so there was more room for us all and we had a great day on the water. We did see a whale and calf but, given that it was at the end of the season, everyone was satisfied with that. There were also dolphins and seals so it was well worth the effort. Crew members were helpful, informative and interacted well with the passengers. This was a very enjoyalbe day and is to be recommended. Well done!

It was amazing to be on a schooner, sailing out on the Pacific! The passengers helped raise the sails as we got underway and we covered our ears as the horn blasted out the start of our adventure. As we cleared Point Loma we hit open water and it was exhilarating to be racing on the waves and feeling the wind and salt spray as the search for whales began. We did see whales, following them for 30-45 minutes,an unforgettable experience!! The captain and crew were excellent,mindful of our safety and comfort, but also encouraging all of us to enjoy this once in-a-lifetime outing! The kids on board got special attention from Captain Al as he explained a lot of the history of whaling and sailing. As we said goodbye to the whales, the crew opened up the last sail and we winged back San Diego, passing the schooner Californian with a cheer! Lots to see in the San Diego harbor, from the Navy warships and submarines, to a glimpse of the USA 11 . As we pulled up to the dock, all aboard agreed that it was a memorable experience, thanks to the crew and captain, and of course, the whales!!!

Great cruise... very calm day. Only saw two whales and they weren't very visible but the cruise alone was worth the price. Plenty of snacks and drinks. Great crew and captain.

We spent a wonderful day on the water on this beautiful sailboat. Luck was with us that day as we saw 2 humpback whales cavorting along with their dolphin traveling companions. It was quite a show! Then we also managed to see a fin whale! The boat was comfortable and the narrator/guide was a delight--knowledge and humor. Thanks Viator!

This was a fabulous sailing adventure - only saw one blue whale, but it swam next to our boat for more than 20 minutes, feeding, spouting, rolling over, etc. More than exciting! Crew was very knowledgeable as well as courteous and helpful. Great for kids as well as adults.

We unfortunately saw no whales on our trip but it was a very enjoyable cruise none the less. We saw dolphins which were incredible and we get to come back for another tour whenever suits. I'd definitely recommend this. Whale sighting or not :)
