4Do you have restrooms on board?
Yes, our cruise boats offer multiple restrooms.
5Is the cruise safe for children?
Yes, all of our boats have high railings and non-skid decks that help keep children safe. All of our vessels are U.S. Coast Guard inspected and approved.
6What type of clothing/shoes/hat/glasses should we wear?
Casual to your taste. Please keep in mind that it does get cooler out on the water than on land so layers are ideal. Flat, skid-resistant, closed toe and heel shoes are recommended.
7Are there refreshments onboard?
A snack bar is onboard where you may satisfy your hunger with hot dogs, chips, popcorn, candy, and other great snacks! You may also quench your thirst with ice cold soda, water, and beer.
8Where do we park?
The closest parking structure is the Aquarium parking structure. We are the first dock to the left of the Aquarium of the Pacific and across the street from Bubba Gump Shrimp Restaurant. Parking is discounted to $8 with validation from our ticket booth-the parking garage reserves the right to change this without notice.
9What types of marine life do you see?
While no sightings are guaranteed, we typically see Blue Whales (largest animal on earth) May through November. Gray Whales migrate past Long Beach December through April. Dolphins, Sea Lions, and Harbor Seals are spotted throughout the year. We also see Fin Whales, Humpback Whales, Minke Whales, and have even seen pods of Orcas (Killer Whales) on our trips!
10Are sightings guaranteed?
Unfortunately, sightings are not guaranteed as we don't use tracking devices that can harm the animals but we try our best to look for any marine life we can find for our guests.
11When is the best time to go?
There are year-round whale watching possibilities off the coast of California. There is not necessarily a greater percent chance at any given time.
