Overpriced and a waste of time. We saw couple of birds and a the back of a dolphin throughout the excursion. The funny part was when we were asked if we enjoyed the trip lol - not so funny when it happened

Whale watching can be a hit or miss experience. The whales are wild animals, they may be there or they may not. But today was special. The boat is well maintained, and large. There is a snack bar and facilities. The crew is very knowledgeable, but also very friendly sharing their knowledge with you. What did we see? It was... More

Thank you for the awesome review. You had a very rare sight of the lunge feeding Fin Whales, which is just an amazing sight to behold. Please join us again, possibly for Gray Whales starting now, or Blue Whales in the summer. More

We came across Harbor Breeze while on a family walk around Shoreline Village in Long Beach. On a whim, we booked the 3:00 p.m. tour for that same day. We could not have planned for a more exciting experience all around. First, the boat itself has a great setup. It was not overcrowded for our departure, but even if it... More

We decided to go whale watching, while we were in California for Thanksgiving. Being from the East Coast, we're used to go to Massachusetts and Maine and we've never been disappointed. This time we went and it rained heavily for the cruise. The sea was rough, but the new catamaran boat felt very safe. We were lucky to see a... More

I love whales and the opportunity to go on a whale watching tour while we were staying was too good to miss. The trip is about 3 hours long on a very comfortable boat that sells snacks and drinks. On our trip, two experts from the Aquarium Of the Pacific acted as guides. For two thirds of the tour all... More

We took this tour on impulse, and we were fortunate as we got to see four whales, over two hundred dolphins and a few see lions. Even the tour guide and the boat captain were surprised to have encountered so many dolphins, and four separate whales, which according to the narrator, the markings on their flukes (tails) are very different...

This whale watching cruise was well worth the time. Besides the beautiful ocean, blue skies and perfect weather, there is a staff member on board that provides narratives on the whales, sea lions, and dolphins. Very professionally done! We did see a blue whale, and many dolphins. I recommend this cruise to everyone!!

We took the noon cruise on Monday. We didn't see any whales, but we saw lots of dolphins. My 4 year old and 8 year old had a great time. My husband loved it. I would definitely go again!
