Great trip. The best whale watching boat. If you don't see a whale they will give you A ticket/coupon to go again for free. We saw two whales, a school of dolphins and sea lions.

Our cruise was a bit rocking due to the wind, but it was so fun and our captain was very knowledgable and clearly enjoys what he does!! We were out for 90 min, saw soo many dolphins, but could not get out pass the point due to the choppy seas. But we got "whale checks" and are going again this weekend. Plus 50% off our next cruise!! You just can't beat that !

Not long enough for money paid

Two hours of dealing with private boaters, saw two whales from a distance and nothing else. Wasn't worth the money paid.

This was 2nd time we went. This boat had less outside seating and less interior space as well. We saw 1 whale, at a distance - disappointing.

Great way to spend an afternoon

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.

excellent trip

This was an excellent way to spend a few hours. There is not a guarantee that you will actually see whales on the day you go. We did get to see 2 fin whales and literally 100's of dolphins on the day we went out. The crew tries to make sure you will see something on your excursion and our crew were friendly and very helpful. will probably do this again if we are in the area again.

Saw whales, as promised, as well as dolphins.

The skipper and crew were awesome. There was a marine expert on board who narrated and explained behaviors. They let all the kids on board go into the wheel house and "drive" the boat. Although I had no children with me I thought this was a very wonderful thing. We saw whales, they explained how to spot them and track them. We saw so many dolphins it was like being in a Jacque Cousteau show. The dolphins were worth the price of the ticket!

Can't wait to do again

Did not spot any whales but totally enjoyed boat trip out in the big blue. Boat/yacht was beautiful, clean with excellent menu selection in the galley. So relaxing and enjoyable. Saw plenty of dolphins which was spectacular. Totally appreciate voucher to experience again. Intuition says we will catch that grey whale next time
