My husband and I took a Whale Watching Cruise last weekend, and we could not have had a more enjoyable experience. The staff was exciting and knowledgeable and we were alone on the open ocean with wildlife for hours. I highly recommend this company/tour!

Went whale watching at the end of the feeding season, but we were able to get a close view of a humpback and had a pod of dolphins join us on the way back in. Beautiful views, nice folks, learned a lot too.

We loved this trip. It was a serendipitous choice to go see whales although we knew it wasn't exactly the season. We saw 5 whales, some bottle nosed dolphins, seals, birds and it was great. I'd go again when in Santa Cruz.
