Interesting and fun facts about the dolphins. We didn't see whales so they gave us a "whale check" for another trip anytime. Can't wait till we can go again.

An enjoyable day

We enjoyed our trip very much. The skipper was quite informive, discribing the differant sea life that we encountered along the way, and also, some that normally are in our coatal waters but did not appear. Unfortunately, the Whales were among those that did not appear. We will use Dana Point' Wharf's Whale Watching Tour again; maybe we will have better luck next time.

Lots of dolphins, no whales.

Saw several hundred dolphins which was fascinating. Did not see any whales, so the crew issued "whale checks" (good for future trip) which is great for us locals. Captain was informative. Long boarding line formed early with no place to sit, and the boat was quite full, thus many of us had to stand throughout the whole experience which was not good for this senior with back problems. Women's restroom was foul smelling and the toilet was clogged; unacceptable!

Handicap assistance zilch

I emailed the company to ask about wheelchair access prior to purchasing tickets. They responded quickly and were helpful, suggesting specific sailings that would be best to take on the date I selected. The times worked into our schedule. But, upon check in and the entire sailing there was no assistance with boarding, and simple things like where the rest room, where the best location for us to sit was, and getting on and off with grace. The cruise was glorious, even though we didn't see whales, only dolphins. Oh, they didn't give everyone in our party a coupon to return with 50 off either. Only gave it to 3 out of 5. Even after I asked. That sucked.

We had a great time, enjoying the fantastic weather and scenery. We saw sealions and dolphins and finally some whales. The crew went out of their way to try to ensure we saw some whales and actually over ran the sailing time to do so. Very friendly and informative staff.

Guides were very informative. Only problem were adults who sat on table tops and blocked view for children and shorter adults.

My whole group had a wonderful time on this trip: we saw so many dolphins, a few whales, and learned so much about where we live. I want to do it again next week!
