The boat ride in and of itself is a simple pleasure. The crew is very friendly and kind. I brought my Mom and her girlfriends from back east. We had purfect weather and we did see a whale. There were tons of dolphins that were just adorable. Second year in a row we had a great time. We were able to but the tickets in advance and saved a bundle. That was an added perk. When you arrive in Dana Point to check in for the boat ride, there is kind of an ordeal to have to call and give them a 3 digit number. If we did not arrive early, that could of been very stressful. All in all it was a great day and thank you.

Dana Point is a beautiful area, the wharf is interesting and fun, and the Wind and Sea restaurant on the wharf had yummy soup and fresh calamari to warm us up after the trip. We had a great time and will certainly do it again, and recommend it to friends and out-of-town visitors.

We watched about 100 dolphins swim in and out of our wake. Crew was friendly and kept the passengers informed with interesting information. It was a very cool day on the water and since we were unable to spot any whales, the crew gave us free tickets to come back out again, which was respectable. I would recommend the trip to anyone, it was definitely worth it.

We were very fortunate to have good weather and we were able to observe two grey whales. Crew was friendly and very informative and our guide made sure that we had the chance to watch these whales do what whales do :) Definitely plan to take this tour again to observe blue whales in the spring!

This crew was great. They knew exactly where the whales were. They kept a respectful distance and gave us a lot of information about the whales and dolphins. Will return when the blue whales are around.

It was fantastic!! We saw a blue whale, a shark, and sea lions. The captain was informative and very patient. We got to follow the whale for some time while we watched it swim on it's long journey. It was so peaceful and the boat was big enough so you didn't get sea sick easily. I loved it!!

This was by far the best whale watching trip I have ever been on. The captain, Todd, was excellent with tons of information. My son had a blast, and we saw 5 whales. I highly recommend this trip!
