Avila Beach Whale Watching reviews
Mark was an excellent captain and gave us a great tour of Port San Luis and some of the sites around the area. You get a great look at the coastline, cliffs, caves, wildlife that you can only get by..... more »
Our little kids just loved everything from the start to the end...the boat ride, watching the wales up close, the seals and other dozens of marine mammals...will be back again soon. more »
Excellent experience. Got to see whales and dolphins. Captain Mark was a great host. Would definitely recommend using. Thanks again.
We had the best time! Captain Dak was on time and an excellent tour guide. He knew how to get us to a place where we were surrounded by whales. We had whales coming within 10 feet of the motor boat. They were breaching, spouting and flipping up their tails. It was a trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend this company for whale watching excursions.
