Not a bad tour for the price. Older boat but it did have cushioned seats topside, a snack bar and restroom. Capt narrated the tour and was very pleasant and informative. Seeing sea lions on a buoy was a highlight so he circled the boat slowly around it for a longer good view.

Great day out whale hunting. Unfortunately the water was rough and we didn't see any whales. We did run into a huge pod of dolphins ~100! Great day, knowledgeable people from the aquarium. One note, parents don't stuff your kids with food before heading out on the ocean! They will puke!

We had the opportunity to experience a late harbor cruise. It was a smooth ride and the speaker gave us all the facts of what was in the harbor and around it. It was well worth it! It's excellent for groups, schools, clubs and churches. Great service on board and a nice staff.

We were in Long Beach last weekend for a company awards gathering and we chartered Harbor Breeze for a harbor tour. It was a pleasant trip around the docks, and weather was great. Staff were very attentive, Captain who conducted the tour and announced and pointed out all the notable sights was very informative. We all had a great time... More

This was a nice very inexpensive 45 minute tour of the harbor that was very informative. Great views of The Queen Mary, the lighthouse and we even got to see some Sea Lions!!

I wanted to like it. I really did. I was so excited to see whales. However, there is no minimum age so there were SCREAMING babies the whole time. The boat went really fast on rough water and people were ill, vomiting, etc. I would not recommend when seas are rough. We did see a couple whales, which was cool,... More

We set out with expectations of potentially seeing dolphins and crossing our fingers that we would see a whale. We stood in line for a bit to get on board and were prepped with all the safety info. They had some informative people on the trip and one older guy who was like the Park Ranger of the sea who... More

We weren't as lucky with our sightings as other reviewers (but have been lucky enough in the past to have seen humpbacks breaching) so we didn't mind too much. But we did see blue fin whales really clearly and got a glimpse of a grey whale. The boat itself is really nice and comfortable, with outdoor and indoor seating (with... More

We were too late for their whale cruise but the Harbor Cruise is a good chance to get out on the water and learn a little about Long Beach.
