Loved it!

We have two college age daughters, and it's not always easy to find things to do that we will all like. We all loved this. We saw 4 blue whales.

Lots of blue whale viewing, great narrator!

We saw a blue whale repeatedly, who kept resurfacing every 3-5"! The last time the female (per the person guiding the tour) surfaced, she was within 100' of the boat-great photo opportunities!! Also the person running the tour did a great job at narrating and anticipating where the whale would surface next. Great job!

We saw plenty of whales. The captain extended the tour to allow us a fantastic final look at a blue whale that just surfaced within 50 yards of the boat on the way back. That was great.

We had a great time, the boat was extremely clean and well maintained, the crew was awesome, the captain did his best to make sure we saw at least one whale. It's a great local thing to do. Have fun!

Wonderful Adventure

We had a group of friends from Palms Springs visiting our Dana Point home (We split time between DP and PS). Everyone anticipated the whale watching experience and they were not disappointed. There were 7 whale sightings. Of course, the weather was perfect, which helped make the day perfect. This was our 2nd exceptional whale watching experience. The captain and crew were friendly and extremely knowledgeable about whales and sea life in general.. Overall the experience was outstanding and we will be recommending the trip to friends. Thank you.

Really Nice Time

My wife and I love boats, so we booked a Whale Watching tour. For the money, this is a great deal. Two full hours on a really nice and big boat, full cash bar and enough rail room for everyone. Saw one (maybe two, not sure if the second one was the same) blue whale(s), a seal, and a school of white Risso dolphins. Captain Frank was very knowledgable and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour.

We had a fantastic time. The crew was very informative and with the help of other boats in the area was able to locate several blue whales. We actually saw a total of 4 blue whales. My nephew was visting from South Dakota and had a fantastic time. He was excited to see the whales. We also took my nephew who is 4 and he was amazed at the whales. Thank you and looking forward to another visit soon!

We Saw A Blue!

The skipper was very knowledgeable about all of the marine life. I learned quite a bit. The assistant was very helpful and enthusiastic. The skipper was bummed until 15 mins before our return he spotted a spout out in the distance and announced that a whale had been sighted. Everyone got excited, but we didn't see the whale for a while. We thought, "Yeah, he's just getting his passengers riled up". Then we saw this HUGE gray thing slowly break the surface of the water about 100 yards away. A real Blue Whale. The skipper spent a little extra time shadowing the whale before we finally returned. Everyone was very impressed...
