We want to make sure that you have as good a trip as we can possibly provide. On the vast majority of our California whale watching trips we will see whales. On others, we may run into an exceptional sighting of dolphins, porpoises, Orcas (killer whales), basking sharks or other animals, and we’ll take our time viewing them. However, sometimes due to weather, or the unpredictability of the animals themselves, we are “skunked.” If we don’t see whales (or exceptional sightings of other marine animals) the Captain of the Condor Express will issue a “whale check,” which is good for a free trip on another Condor Express whale watching trip during that season.
Whale checks are issued at the discretion of the Captain of the Condor Express. Speak to the Captain, not Sea Landing personnel, if you have a question regarding “whale checks.” Sorry, there are no cash refunds for whale watching trips, but we’ll be happy to take you on another whale watching trip for free.
