Went out for two hour whale watching cruise, while it is the end of the season and didn't see any whales, we found and followed a pod of Common dolphins (about 100). They were beautiful to watch. Crew was very pleasant and accomodating to all on board. Will do it again.

Good value with the groupon, saw some whales and that's about it. The "free drink" is a scam that ends up being $7, which they didn't share until after they'd brought it to the guests.

My boyfriend and I took a 2 hour whale watching cruise. The staff were friendly and the boat was clean and beautiful. Would love to go again, I could have cruised around all day! Very well run operation.

Overall the trip was a blast! Very reasonably priced, friendly service, good accommodations. We saw only one whale but we saw a lot of it and we saw just a ton of dolphins minnows and seals which made the trip very enjoyable when we weren't watching the one whale.

We had hoped to go on some sort of a boat during our super quick trip down to Santa Barbara for an almond convention. This company was so accomadating and genial, they arranged a private charter when we realized our timing was off for whale watching. Learned a lot about the harbor and Santa Barbara in general and the customer... More

We saw whales as was advertised but would have liked to have gotten a closer look. We were quite a ways away so they looked only like dark mounds coming out of the water.

Such a pleasant trip, lovely day, saw 4-5 whales. The crew was great and my daughter and grandkids loved it, as did I.

Didn't get to see very many whales but we did see a couple not to close which I was hoping we'd get a little closer but anyways got to see other sea life so with that absolutely a very relaxing cruise I really enjoyed it. Staff were very attentive and to converse with. We absolutely had great weather.
