We love the Marina Del Rey Matt Walsh Eco/Whale Watching Boat. The staff is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. Also they have been diligently following Covid-19 protocol, so I feel very safe. The former wooden fishing boat is ideal for whale watching and marine sightings because it sits lower on the water in comparison to the newer whale watching boats. The bow riding dolphins appear so close and you can take awesome close-up pictures, as well as great photos of the other larger cetaceans. Highly recommend going on boat trip with the Matt Walsh.

Went on a Thursday. Did not see any whales but a ton of dolphins and sea lions! Staff was super friendly, price was worth it, concessions were decently priced. I would definately go again!

I loved this experience! Marine Del Rey Sportfishing was a fun and peaceful venture out into the ocean for a brief tour of the local wildlife. We saw grey whales, seals, sea lions, and an array of birds. Our guides were knowledgeable and friendly. There is a $5 per person charge for using groupon so keep that in mind! Overall an amazing experience!

About Marina Del Rey Sportfishing

The waters around Marina del Rey teem with seasonal gamefish. Beneath the ocean's surface, halibut, sand bass, and barracuda swim from Rocky Point to the Big Kelp Reef. That is, until they cross paths with The Betty-O, Spitfire, or the New Del Mar—the fishing boats of Marina Del Rey Sportfishing's fleet. Aboard these vessels, experienced guides help small and large groups cast lines and pull prize catches from the water.

But sometimes, the ocean's beauty makes anglers put down their fishing poles. Sea lions, dolphins, sea birds, and several whale species also make their home in the water. This diversity of wildlife prompted the owners of Marina Del Rey Sportfishing to start their whale and eco tour, during which sightseers can admire the ocean's majestic creatures and the teams of Aquamen who groom them.
