Even though the grey whale eluded us, we were honored with the playful antics of a HUGE group of Common Dolphin! We had a wonderful time!

Unbelievable Experience

My husband and I took relatives and friends who were visiting us from VA, CT and KS. We had the most exciting ride ever. The day was perfect. We saw whales going south and whales going north which is quite unusual we found out. Some of the whales showed off their tails while other jumped clear out of the water. We saw about 8-10 whale jumps. Then as we were returning, a group (there were so many we could not count them) came along side our boat and put on a show for us . They were swimming with us and jumping up and out of the water. It was more that we ever exxpected and the Captain said it was the best trip of the season. I highly reccomend this trip to everyone of all ages.

The boat ride was excellent. Not too choppy. I have been on smaller boats and felt nautilus. They did everything in their power to find whales, and provided us with info on the species. We saw two whales and some other sea life. Very fun, especially, for the reasonable price. Our group consisted of graduate students from across the country that are currently going to school in California. We found Dana Point to be a beautiful area worth visiting as well.

From beginning to end, the customer service was excellent. I was running a few minutes late and they were considerate enough to wait for me just a couple of minutes as I made my way through the parking lot, not only that, but as I literally got onto the boat, I had a customer service representative call me to see if I had been able to make it after all! Now that's service! Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and you can tell this is not just a job for him, but his calling in life! I and my friend had a great time, learned a lot, and got to see a fantastic whale and playful dolphins...can't wait to go back again next time!

No grey whale sighting, but plenty of dolphins!

The crew was informative, the boat was comfortable (had exterior and interior/cafe seating). Too bad we didn't get to encounter any grey whales (went in early January during the season), but we did get to see a pod of bottle-nosed dolphins that stuck around with us for awhile and played with our boat! It was worth the trip.

Fabulous - birthday party

My daughter's 12th birthday party celebration consisted of 14 girls. Was affordable and exciting too. No whales, but the largest pod of dolphins I have ever seen in my life. The crew took us to three locations to see three types of dolphin. This is the 10th time, I estimate, I've been whale watching and, even though we saw no whales, it was the best experience yet.
