Very relaxing & smooth cruise. Unfortunately we did not see any Whales.They very graciously gave us a return ticket for another day. We enjoyed the 2 hour cruise.

What a Day!

The trip started on time, the crew were friendly and helpful, the day was beautiful, seas were clam, and the food was good (thank heavens that we don't ever get sea sick). We didn't get to see any whales but it's only the beginning of one season and the ending of another, but the Captain found a large pod of dolphins and took us to the center and we got to enjoy their play (sometimes right under the bow of the ship)...what a wonderful experience. The Captain also educated us about what we encountered along the way. Thanks much.

The staff was courteous and full of information. Knowledgeable about the sea life around the Dana Point and San Clemente area. We spotted five Gray Whales on the tour and enjoyed the tour very much.

I took my elderly parents out and we had a great experience with dolphins and saw whales. Just the view of the coastline from the water was appreciated by my 90+ year old step-dad from Iowa. Thanks,

Truly Amazing! Can Not Wait To Do This Again!

My sons and I loved it! We saw dolphin sign right away, several swam with the ship and I got some fabulous photos. We also saw two Gray Whales and traveled with them for several minutes. The bonus was when we slowed to the outer sea buoy that was packed with seals, a seal pup came up to the ship and checked us all out - he was so adorable. The Captain was extremely knowledgeable and provided the perfect amount of information. The crew was very friendly and my sons had a very tasty lunch from the galley. Dress very warmly - a sweatshirt is not enough for an excursion in open water!

Gorgeous day, tons of dolphin sightings but the whale sightings were a disappointment. A couple of rolling backs, that's it. I've been on many whale watches before and they always put on a good show. Captain seemed more concerned with getting us back in time to get the next boat out.

We saw 2 whales. Saw them surface. When a dolphin pod was found I was glad the pilot took us to see them. They were delightful.
