  • A fantastic whale watching trip! I've been whale watching many times but never in San Francisco and couldn't be more grateful that I picked this company. They were professional and kind - every bit...  more »
  • Found a whale early out and followed her, these people really know what they are doing. We sailed out under the Golden Gate, it was an experience we would recommend to everyone. Glad we did this...  more »
  • I’ll preface this by saying that I’ve spent six years trying on both US coasts to spit one of these magnificent creatures and this trip was the one. Fifteen minutes out of the marina is all it took.....  more »
  • Crew was great and captain was very entertaining. Tour left on time and stayed out the alloted time paid for. Saw several whales with my only complaint being we were never close, close to them. As the captain and crew explained, they didn't want to run the risk of potentially hurting a whale by it running into the boat or vice versa. Totally respect that. Would certainly recommended them to anyone looking to do a whale tour. Thanks for a fun trip y'all.
  • It very nice and every one is nice and will show you around 👍
  • I had a blast! If you cannot find what you need just send them an email and they will get back to you within 24 hours with any assistance. If you are unable to actually see a whale, they will let you join another visit. I luckily have only gone once but did get to see a whale in the most Ironic and shallow of places (within 20-30 ft deep waters vs the open ocean). It's so much fun seeing Seals and porpoises openly swimming the open sea and you get to go underneath the Golden Gate Bridge! How often do you get to tell people you've done that? The experience is definitely one for the books. Check them out.
  • Absolutely loved this. We did an 8:00am tour in October, so it was quite chilly. I wore layers, gloves, and a beanie and didn’t feel any cold except for my nose!! The tour was led by a young lady studying whales from Berkeley University. Learned a lot about whales and seen tons of other sea life and several whales! This is also a women owned business. The boat felt very safe and was well maintained. The captain was also great. He gave us a great safety briefing and got us safely to and from the whales. A++++
