We went just outside the Golden Gate Bridge. The catamaran held about 20 people, including a captain and a naturalist. We were briefed on safety, comfort, and what to look for at our destination. The water was rough and the weather chilly. The bow was opened up for viewing later. The staff of the cat was attentive to those suffering from sea sickness. The naturalist spoke about the whales and pointed out like a clock where activity could be seen. We stayed in the area for an hour and saw several sightings. I would recommend and take this cruise again. It is not for anyone who is subject to motion sickness.

Great trip. Organization, commentary, and a big whale. The day as a little wet and foggy, but the result could not have been better.

This tour was the highlight of our trip! We saw lots of whales, seals and even a big jellyfish. It was amazing to pass under the Golden Gate Bridge, and to see the city from the water. The captain and crew were very friendly and engaged, you can tell they love their jobs. I highly recommend this tour company!

The captain and crew that take you out are very experienced and safety conscious. Growing up on the water and w boats, I have great respect for a serious captain that knows the waters. We did see whales!! Several. It's as if they know the boat and the crew. This was best charter in town.

My wife and I love to see Whales and on this trip we saw two, so it was a great trip. I give it 5 stars even though our 8 AM trip did not start until 9 AM due to some issue that the Captain had. Captain and guide were both very well informed about whales and all the other marine life we saw on the trip

It was an outstanding trip. The captain worked really hard to get us excellent whale sightings and Allison, the naturalist, was awesome.
It was worth doing again, but make sure you dress in layers. The trip out and back was cold!

What an experience! Even thought the weather was really bad cold, very foggy to the extent you couldn't see the Golden Gate Bridge till you were nearly upon it! we still saw two humpback whales - when the tail came out of the water, it was such an amazing sight! - lots of porpoise, harbour seals, pelicans, lots of different seabirds, and all amid a very informative and helpful audio guide. We absolutely loved this trip, and would do it again in an instant!

We got to see lots of Humpback Whales, which was fantastic. The tour was brilliant and our guided commentary was very informative and entertaining. I would definitely recommend this trip - well worth the money.

Well organized. Professional guide and funny crew made this trip even better than anticipated. We learned a lot and were able to see quite a few humpbacks right next to the Golden Gate. Thank you!

This trip was amazing and well worth a visit. Alison, the lady who was telling us all about whales was so informative and very knowledgable on the subject. This was top of my bucket list and I saw what I wanted.

Great experience. This was our second time to take an architectural tour, and this one not only took us to different places but also was longer. We all really enjoyed it and highly recommend doing so.

We had a great time with our two grandchildren ages 13 and 7. We saw several whale sightings, seals, and porpoises. There were a few rude people who stood in front of my grandchildren on the return trip when we were asked to return to our seats but it is not the tours fault. The whalelady was very informative and we enjoyed her very much.

Great tour. the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Great Cruise, saw probably 6-9 whales and other sealife.

Great tour! These guys respect the marine life so they aren't going to chase the whales down so you can get your whale-selfie. Yes they were far away but I would rather see a whale from far away in it's natural habitat than up close trapped at sea world. Also saw some porpoises and seals. You also get up close to the golden gate bridge which is awesome to see all on it's own. It was a lot of fun standing on the deck with everyone scanning the bay to see who could spot a spout first. Bring your binoculars and enjoy!

This tour was the highlight of our trip to San Francisco. The staff was SO friendly and knowledgeable and the respect they have for the animals and keeping a safe distance really sealed the deal for me. We went a month ago and are still talking about this tour with friends. We will ABSOLUTELY be back and if you have the chance please go!!!
