  • What a beautiful day on the ocean. Although we didn't see any whales, we did see tons of dolphins, seals, and sea lions. This is a must do when in San Diego!  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!
