Absolutely AWESOME! Don't change a thing!!! Not only did we see a ton of whales, we saw and road along a huge school of dolphins, which was soo much fun. We highly recommend this trip and will definitely be back to take it again.

Blue Whales, Fin Whales, and Dolphins... oh my!

It was a typical gorgeous day on the water in Orange County.. having rained just 2 days prior, the weather was picture perfect. We boarded the very lovely (and spotless) catamaran and were greeted with smiles and a helping hand. It was a truly amazing day! We saw at least a dozen blue whales, a great handful of fin whales and too many dolphins to even count. I'm not exaggerating whatsoever! The captain exclaimed that it was one of the best days in a long time. We felt so blessed to be on board with a great crew and friendly passengers. The captain constantly kept us updated about sightings and gave great historical information about the wildlife we were encountering. I had my doubts about going on a local, "touristy" activity, but I'm so happy that I chose to celebrate our anniversary on this vessel. It was a fantastic voyage. Kudos for a marvelous day of sight seeing! I can't wait to see our photos!

Amazing Experience

We were really eager about the ride on the Ocean Adventures boat and were looking forward to catch a glimpse of at least some dolphins, if not a whale. But it was our luck that a whale decided to surface, not once but 5 times. The whole experience was wonderful and we cherish it forever.

Had a great time, friendly group

Captain was friendly, knowledgable, and knew right where to take us to get the best view of the whale(s). Had several sitings, one pretty close up. Then seeing all the dolphins was at treat. Smaller group, which gives more opportunity to take pics and interact. Thoroghly recommend this trip.

Wonderful Trip - well worth the cost

We are local but took family from midwest with the hopes of seeing a Blue Whale. The Captain was tremendously informative and, best of all, had the skill and experience to take us to the exact spot where one of those natural wonders of the world surfaced four times. We got some great photos, including one tail shot. To top it off, our trip back to port was accompanied by a large group of dolphins that seemed to enjoy frolicking with the boat. All in all, one of our best experiences in a long time. Will highly recommend it to others.

We saw a whale. We followed it for about 3 dives. We also saw california black and white dolphins as well as the normal dolphin. The captain was very knowledgable and was enjoyable. The only down side was the know it all next to me that would not shut up and let me enjoy the ocean.

Magical!!

We had the most magical time. I took my 5 year old and he and I had the best time sharing in the beauty of being around the pod of Dolphins and the Blue Whale. We had the pleasure of being with a select group of friends that chartered the boat for ourselves. I HIGHLY reccomend this experience! I can now check that off my "bucket list"!

Really fantastic 2 hours!

The boat was great and the Captain seemed very nice. Michelle Anderson and her group made this an unforgettable journey. Dolphins stayed with us all day and we saw two blue whales. The only thing I would have wished is for the Captain to have been able to shut off the engine when we were so close to the whales. But, no complaints. I look forward to going again!

I loved going with Michelle Anderson's group to celebrate the Equinox. Our trip was so beautiful and gentle and joy filled watching all the dolphins and whales. It was quite a gift! The captain was wonderful and sensitive to our group.
