Had a good time, boat was clean and appears well maintained, crew was friendly and knowledgable. Saw Sea Lions and at least two types of dolphins but no whales in mid-November. We will be back!

We just did the 2 hour whale watching cruise and it was amazing! The catamaran gives a smooth ride and the captain is awesome! He really knows the area and the local ocean "residents" and he made sure we saw several blue whales. On the way back to shore he pulled along side a pod of common dolphins and they ended up bow surfing off our boat! Such a thrill to see. Our whole family enjoyed the trip and would gladly do it again. Highly recommend this tour!

I'm with Laurie Anderson and helping organize the Dolphins Love Kids boat trips. I really appreciate the open minded and friendly manner you displayed on the trip. I am a retired school teacher and also appreciated the interesting background information presented on the trip. Looking forward to more adventures in the future.

The trip it self was awesome. Saw about 5-6 gray whales, bunch of dolphins and sea lions, even saw a huge sun fish outta no where! Bright sunny day fun boat ride my girlfriend was afraid to walk anywhere and that was perfect. But the descripition says a close encounter with the sea life as you watch swim below you in our special observation deck.... I thought that meant a glass floor like just a square... nope they mean front of the boat... WOo hoo lol any boat has a front. And the prices are insane for food and drinks but thats not a surprise.

My wife didn't think we'd be lucky and see any whales. She was very impressed when we tracked next to two pair of blue whales. The crew was very informative and professional. We saw several groups of dolphins and some squid also. We would do the trip again and highly recommend it.

I have been on two whale watching tours with Dana Point Whale Watching tours. I saw whales and many other kinds of mammals and fish both times. The crews were very knowledgeable about the animal and the area. The boat was clean and looked well maintained. I had a wonderful times on each tour. I have already recommend DPWW to my friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. We loved having a marine biologist on board to tell us what we were seeing and to answer questions. The captain made every effort to get us to where we were able to see about 30 minutes of blue whale activity even though it meant we would be a little late getting back. It made the cruise that much more enjoyable. The crew was friendly and helpful and the catamaran was clean and comfortable. We had a great time.
