We had a great family outing with Capt. Rich. The boat was a great size for our family of four, with a great upstairs sitting area to look out for dolphins. We went out at 9:30 a.m. and found dozens, maybe hundreds, of dolphins. Then Capt. Rich heard about a rare whale spotting so we went to find it and did. Then we found a pod of bottlenose dolphins before heading back to Mission Bay. Capt. Rich went out of his way to make sure we had a great trip.

The Captain was so set on us seeing a whale and he did just that... My friend and I saw 2 year old Blue whale and Dolphins... A lot of Dolphins... Sea Lions... We had the best time in San Diego on that boat... Fiance got called off his leave and had duty but the Captain told us we get a free passenger next time... Definitely coming back...

Had a fantastic time celebrating a 40th birthday. Saw 4 fin whales including a calf, and a nursery pod of dolphins!

Captain Rich was very knowledgeable and took us everywhere to find ocean life. While there wasn’t many out he tried his hardest to make sure we had a great time. The seats up top were a blast!

My 24 year old son and I had such an incredible time on family whale and dolphin adventure. we saw whales, dolphins, and sea lions. Coach Rich was excellent guide. Even though it was not a bright sunny day, it was an absolutely fantastic way to spend an afternoon with a 20 something emerging adult. we could put behind us all our anxieties about our futures, work stressors and be swept away by the beautiful ocean perched high on a very comfortable bench seat. It was terrific to make a great memory unfettered by cell phones, screens and other distractions.

Captain Rich showed as amazing adventure. We felt safe and secure and total confidence in his ability. We spent time in our whale hunt we seen them from a distance as they were being evasive. We also played with a pod of dolphins for a significant amount of time. Finishing with your and information on the sea lions and birds on the barge. Captain Rich was very informative. Would definitely do this trip again worth the money

Capt. Rich was so accommodating and very knowledgeable! He went out of his way to make sure that we had a good experience. He put us right on a pod of dolphins and were so excited to see hundreds of them running right next to the boat. He took time to educated my grandson on the wonders of the ocean. I would recommend the trip to everyone!!!
