  • This is really a nice way to cruise the bay. The tour includes both north and south routes with a stop after one hour to load and unload passengers. The narration provided some information that locals...  more »
  • We saw sea lions and a few dolphins. Technically we didn't see whales but rather we saw the spout of water as they surface to breathe. The boat is comfortable and the captain did a great job narrating...  more »
  • We took the morning cruise to see whales on their migration south along the coast. The ship is spacious and there are good vantage points both inside and outside. The boat skipper was very successful ...  more »

  • Omg! What a beautiful night and experience! We did the sights and sips cruise last night. So much fun! Breathtaking views. The food was good, nice variety. The only thing I was not impressed with was the jerk of a bartender at the bar dowstairs. He was rude, and acted as though he hated his job. I would highly recommend going on this cruise!
  • It was really chilly and was real choppy that my baby brother almost fell over spent a long time to so we could see no whales and take dreminine because otherwise you should expect to get sick even if you don't get sea sick like I do I still had to chase my way to the restroom. But I think it mostly depended on the day but my mother did not like the expierence at all felt very sick and just wanted to get off but there's most likely a 50% chance you can see a whale.
  • What an incredible experience. The food was fabulous. Staff was very friendly and excellent. The band was very talented. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening we will never forget.
  • My wife and I were lucky enough to go on an afternoon cruise to celebrate the birthday of a good friend with her family.We had a wonderful time and the cruise was very relaxing.
  • (Dinner Cruise) Everything was perfect, from the staff, to the meals, to the setting-- everything. Except for one small thing, the dining room gets really cold when they turn on the A/C (for a few minutes), but I get cold easily so it might just be me. Either way, I love it, planning to do this again in the summer!
