We're a young family with two kiddos, ages 2 and 4. This is our first family vacation and it was not off to a great start. Originally we had our tour scheduled for a Wednesday morning but our kids became ill and we rescheduled to Friday. Rich was very understanding and had no problem moving us to a different time slot. The boat was comfortable, had seating for all of us and a viewing tower. Not only did we see 2 California Gray Whales but we saw a ton of common dolphins too! We ended with seeing the seal lions and their babies on the dock, along with so many different types of birds. Rich was very knowledgable, made us feel completely safe, and even took pictures of us. I was feeling down about our vacation but this was the best part!

Forget the whale watching tours with the masses, get ready for a safe, personalized and exhilarating experience on the water with Rich. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable. We loved the experience and sent more friends his way! We chased some whales, dolphins and had a comfortable and thrilling experience. Just book it! You won’t be disappointed.

It was immediately obvious Rich knew what he was doing. Within a few minutes we were out at sea looking at dolphins. Great trip for the family as I took my 6 & 2-year-old daughters with me. Rich was very warm & accommodating to the girls & provided life jackets for both. I would highly recommend.

This whale and dolphin watching experience was all the reviews said it was. Rich is an excellent captain; safe and knowlegeable of his ship. He found the whales and the dolphins and even did a sea lion viewing on the pier. We had lots of fun and would do it again.

My parents, my 9mon baby and I had a great time with Rich. During the venture, we saw a lot of dolphins, sea loins and a whale finally. Rich is experienced. He communicated with the other captains to get the locations of the whales. We tried three locations.The first time, it’s a baby whale, but it’s too small to identify. Second time, the whale disappeared when we’re waiting. Eventually, we saw a huge whale at the third time. The boat size is good enough to our group. If you want a best view and don’t mind a little chilly, the seat on the top is a great choice.
