Same old story at Newport Landing.

Last year it was loud drunks (friends of the deckhands) and this time(Friday May 13th)it was '300 pound Dude' (again, friend of the crew) crowding the hot corner at the stern and driving me off my spot that I had staked out before we left the dock.

Bait tank troughs went chovieless FIVE TIMES during the night and the crew was clueless, despite being reminded again and again, and insisted on focusing on staying in the wheelhouse, with a deckhand's girlfriend, instead of doing their jobs.

When the crew was on deck they fished - not cool. '300 pound Dude' (the dead-head) of course won the jack-pot and all the newbies were clueless about the situation.

Even at $25, I'll never take another ride with these clowns.

Save your money.

Whale watching

I am a young mother and was looking to do something that would be fun for me and my kids, the whale watching was perfect for it. my 12 year old son and 7year old daughter got to see lots of whales, dolphins and even sea lions. there were drinks and snacks available the atmosphere of balboa pier was perfect for the kids.

Bad Customer Service and Traffic

Recently, myself and two friends came to Newport to go whale watching from Palos Verdes because we heard whale watching was great down there. We previously went whale watching out of Long Beach which was awesome! But, anyway, we tried this Newport Gig and it was horrible. The Newport area itself is great though. So, it took us well over two hours to to get down there and parking was impossible. When we finally go on the ship, the crew seemed disorganized and aloof. We saw 1 dolphin and no whales. I will never go on this trip again and I do not recommend it. Much better sand more accessible whale watching in Long Beach.
