frequently asked questions

What happens if it rains?
We do run in light rain, but if it becomes extremely windy we might have to cancel the trip for safety reasons. If the trip has already left the dock and conditions become unsafe, we will issue a “whale check” that will allow you to come back another time for another cruise!
Are children allowed?
Yes! We have no age limit for our whale watching Dolphin Adventures. Everyone is welcome, and our boats are very safe.
Is this adventure suitable for pregnant women?
While we don’t put a limitation on who may or may not attend, pregnant women should always consult with their doctors before participating in any active activities.
How early should I arrive to check in before the trip?
Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the cruise departs.
Are we guaranteed to see Dolphins or Whales?
Yes! We guarantee that you will see Dolphins! Whales are seasonal so we’re unable to guarantee sightings.
How close do we get to the whales?
The Marine Mammal Protection Act requires that we stay 100 yards away from the whales, but some may swim right up to the boat! Dolphins usually come very close, but we do not touch, swim with, or feed the wildlife.
How far does the boat go out?
Gray whales are coastal navigators, so usually we travel about a mile offshore. The same is generally true for Blue whales.
California’s marine mammals are majestic, and seeing them up close in their natural habitat is an amazing experience. Join us on a dolphin adventure and whale watching excursion and enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Take amazing photographs to bring back to your friends, or take advantage of our professional photo packages! This is sure to be the highlight of your trip to Channel Islands Harbor. Book today!
