The staff was courteous and full of information. Knowledgeable about the sea life around the Dana Point and San Clemente area. We spotted five Gray Whales on the tour and enjoyed the tour very much.

Internet booked Catamaran whale watch for $35/person (3 seniors). They called & cancelled morning of cruise - re-booked us on the cheaper, "big" boat a half hour later than original schedule. Said we were due a refund for the cost difference - get it at check in. Guess not enough Cat people - 'cause weather perfect. Got to desk for check in, they refused to give refund. Said rate for seniors the same on both cruises. That was incorrect - explained we had a coupon, quoted coupon code, and clearly explained cost was $7/person less on the big boat. They asked us to produce the coupon (an internet-offer coupon?). They know darn well there's 4 - 5 such coupons all over the place on the internet. RIPPED OFF for $21. Why? No one manages seating when on boat...two people claiming the 6-person tables on top, people laying down across 3-4 seating spots, people standing & holding on to poles & things as a result. Crew didn't care. stupid. Saw two grey whales breaching in the distance - boat never moved closer to see them. Why? Other boats did... good commentary while cruising. pretty good drinks - great drink prices. Not bad. not great.

I went on this trip with my son and my niece, both 7 yrs old. We did see a lot of dolphins swimming, not jumping so much and we saw one whale. It is something to do if you enjoy relaxing on a boat for a ride, nothing too exciting.

Good infomation about whales

The captain told us this was not like going to Seaworld so we may or may no see a whale. We eere lucky because we saw 5 whales and followed them at a respectable distance so as not to scare them. The captain also gave us information as to the life of whales.

Always a good event

Had planned on the catamarand, but wind prohibited it. We went out on the Dana Pride. The people in the office more than accommodated the change. We always love to go with this group. Thank you.

Interesting!

We enjoyed our little whale watching trip with several groups of our most favorite strangers! It was enjoyable and very informative and the views were beautiful. The whales were not all that anxious to do tricks but we did get a couple of shots of them blowing and the tail coming out of the water. The captain was entertaining and it was a nice get-away. The birds and sea lions lounging by the pier were a plus. I would recommend this little trip for anyone from out of town.

Gorgeous day, tons of dolphin sightings but the whale sightings were a disappointment. A couple of rolling backs, that's it. I've been on many whale watches before and they always put on a good show. Captain seemed more concerned with getting us back in time to get the next boat out.
