    Everything was great and fun. Really enjoyed. Next time we will take the two hours instead. One hour was little too short but we still loved it!

    I had never been on a sailing ship before, so I was nervous. No need! It was a wonderful adventure. Our crew was helpful and knowledgeable. We were invited to help hoist the sails but were also welcome to just sit and watch. The sea cooperated with my stomach (I had "seabands" on - found at the pharmacy on Rosecrans St.- just in case). The crew was generous with blankets, snacks, and sodas (and there was a restroom on board below deck!). We dressed in layers, hats, and sunglasses. I highly recommend binoculars, too. Marie, the chocolate lab, began to bark when she smelled animals in the water. We sailed through a large pod of dolphins, hopping to and fro on both sides of the ship and you could hear them breathe! Capt. Troy kept us out a bit longer and we found two humpbacks gently coming to the surface and diving again. As we turned to go back to SD, we looked back to see two more of them breach!! It was a great experience!!

    Dylan was an awesome guide and we had a blast! We took our two kids-7 and 10 years old-and it was perfect for them in a tandem kayak.

    Im not a review person but I wanted to take a minute to explain how great this experience was. Very personal and relaxing. Captain Aaron was great always making sure we were comfortable providing excellent views. It was a great simple little excursion that added to our San Diego experience. Directions were easy to follow and the price was great.

    KJ and McKenna were great. Kept us feeling safe and powerful on the water. Amazing experience. Didn’t get to see a ton of animals like I would have liked but we went to the cove afterwards and stared at some sea lions for hours.

    maybe a little more city tour and information would have been nice.
    But overall, my grandson age 5 was amazed by it.

    I wasn’t sure what to expect but this exceeded my expectations. I thought we may spend about 2 hours and it was over 5. Highly recommend if you are in San Diego. Intriguing and interesting with so much to look at. You also get to enjoy the beauty. I adored speaking to so many informative guides on the ship and many comfortable spots to relax and enjoy the bay! You will not be disappointed!

    We really enjoyed the tour. The captains were knowledgeable and friendly, and worked really hard to find whales. We saw humpbacks and fin whales, and huge numbers of dolphins that swam right beside us. It was an amazing day; highly recommend! We would choose this company again.

    This experience was amazing! Captain Greg was a great captain! Highly highly recommend if you’re in San Diego! The experience was very peaceful and a small enough group that didn’t feel like too many or too little! So glad I was able to experience this!

    A group of 5 friends enjoyed this fun tour! Scott, the guide was great -energetic and friendly. We loved hearing the history of the Gaslamp Quarter and the food and drinks were a bonus! We even went back to one of the spots (Half Door) after the tour.
