Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    First time sailing and visiting San Diego with my boyfriend. Great experience! Dress warm for this trip. The crew was great and served us free snacks and water. It is a large sailing ship with heavy sails. There were no whales but the captain invited us back for a free trip during peak whale season. Saw a large family of Pacific wild dolphins and new born calves. A magnificent sight to see.

    Dylan was an awesome guide and we had a blast! We took our two kids-7 and 10 years old-and it was perfect for them in a tandem kayak.

    We really enjoyed the tour. The captains were knowledgeable and friendly, and worked really hard to find whales. We saw humpbacks and fin whales, and huge numbers of dolphins that swam right beside us. It was an amazing day; highly recommend! We would choose this company again.

    This was definitely a big highlight on our anniversary trip to San Diego! It did not take long to get used to the e-bikes, and the electric throttle powers you through the big hills of La Jolla. You can go a lot farther than you can at home with your normal bike, and not be all tired out and sore afterwards. Stunning scenery and exhilarating ride. Amy was our guide and she was welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Don’t hesitate to do this. A bit pricey but so worth it!

    We enjoyed watching the dolphin pods! The boat was clean and comfortable! We did not see any whales but at the end we received ticket (that never expires) for a return trip!!!

    What we thought it was lacking;

    Light background music would be great since there were long pauses between the crew off and on the microphone! It would also cover up the noise of the people gagging from seasickness!! A spot for seasick people would be great!!

    Any information or chatter about dolphins and whales, the bay or anything about SanDiego just to fill the time!

    We love Legoland and continue to come back. We have made friends at Legoland and now call them part of our family! So may go out of there way to make sure visitors are happy and enjoying their time. If you go on a week day it’s not crazy buys and you can go from
    ride to ride. Our kids have so much fun and have been many times. They always are asking to go back to Legoland. We really appreciate staff like Renate, Jay, corbin and Lorraine! Renate gives the most amazing tours of the Lego Factory! Make sure you book one! It’s so awesome. The others you can find trading legos or helping with rides! The kids love giving them a hug, making silly faces and high fives! We hope we can keep adding names to our Legoland list of friendly people.

    A beautiful place to kayak. If you paddle without a guide you can't go in the caves, but there is so much beauty out on the water it didn't matter to us. We saw dolphins cavorting near us, leopard sharks, a ray, and beautiful scenery.
