Wonderful Opportunity

Although we live in So. California, we had not gone whale-watching in 10 years. My son was only 5 months old the last time we went! He was so amazed and excited that we actually saw a whale and it was fairly close! We heard the group before saw dolphins but we were happy with the whale.

We were hoping to see Whales. However, the dolphins were amazing! Thousands of common dolphins! Definitely an experience to remember. Don't forget the camera!

Best part about whale watching
Sun, Mar 14, 10   12:00 PM slmartin5977 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The best part about whale watching is being out on the water, especially when it was such a nice day. We only saw a few spouts of water and one whale's back, so from a whale watching perspective it was pretty lame. We didn't see any dolphins/porpoises either. We went by the buoy with the sea lions on it. It was 68 dollars for the three of us, which for what we saw was not worth it. Being out on the water was nice. Perhaps when the whales are staying below, there might be something interesting (geographically/historically) to relate to the people on the boat about the Dana Point area.

Beautiful day. The boat was large and comfortable, and on our day not many people on board so it was like a private tour. The crew were very nice and knowledgeable about the whales and dolfins that we saw and it was fun to learn new things about them. Get on board . . . everyone should experience this adventure.

Very Enjoyable and Memorable

We saw one Gray Whale with her calf and followed them for about 20 minutes. We really had to strain to get a good look (there are laws that keep the boats from getting too close?). Very educational but not too much blah-blah. The ride was great...spectacular views and relaxing! Take dramamine 1 hour before to ensure enjoyment. Awesome staff and reasonably priced yummy snacks.

Great experience!

Great experience! We actually went out twice, due to left over wind conditions the first day. The captains on both boats were friendly, informative and you could tell they love what they do. Although we didn't see any whales either time we went out (which was disappointing)the scenary was fabulous. We did see some dolphins the second day and that was cool. This was the first time 3 of the 4 of us had been out on a boat like this and it was very nice. I would do it again if I return to California in the future.

Although we had been out previously, this time we actually saw a WHALE. The boat's captain was able to keep the whale at about 50 yards to our port side and about 25 yards in front of the boat. we followed the whale for about 20 minutes and saw the tail multible times.

We had a wonderful time. The boat was great, clean and well kept. Staff and crew were very friendly. Very helpful and informative. Obviously, the most amazing part of the trip was the sea life. We actually saw a grey whale breech the water several times.... Ah-mazing!! The captain said it was the first whale breach he had seen all season. I had my cannon camera with telephoto lens and I captured incredible pictures. After spending plenty of time with the whale, the captain took us over to an area to sp

This was a pleasant and well-run activity.

All of our experience was very positive except that it was sometimes difficult to hear and/or understand what was being said over the speakers depending upon where we were located. Safety information at the beginning was almost unintelligible. Perhaps it could be given before the boat is underway. Crew members answered questions in a professional and friendly way when asked. This was a very enjoyable experience!
