Really good trip, wouldve been even better if we had seen a whale, but the Dolphins were more than enough - great trip, would certainly recommend it to others

This was the most boring thing I've done in a while. The Captain of the boat didn't tell us what we were doing or what we were looking for. He let us know about a half an hour into the tour that there were a pack of Sea Lions on the bouy that was right in front of us. The next hour and a half the Captain didn't say one word until we were pulling back into the harbor to let usknow that we will be getting refunds! I've been whale watching out of Dana Point before and the Captain made the trip worth while for us! He would tell jokes and let us know what we were looking for and he just made so much of an effort to keep us entertained! We didn't see any Whale or Dolphin and that's just Mother Nature, but the Captain couldn't have been more speechless! And he didn't seem to make much of an effort to search for any Whale or Dolphin either.

we didn't see any whales or dolphins and therefore got two free tickets for a future ride with no expiration date. That was worth it

A pesar de que no observamos ballenas, el viaje valio la pena. Observamos muchos delfines, algunos leones marinos y focas. Sin embargo hay que decir que tienen mucho por mejorar en el servicio, ya que no parecia que hicieran esfuerzos por ubicar ballenas. Tal parecia que esperaban que alguna se cruzara en su camino, mas que buscarlas.

Don't expect to see whales

If you are planning for a boat ride or dolphin/ sea lion watching, then go ahead. Else, forget about this trip. Keep sailing around the island and no efforts made attempts to search for whales.

Bad weather, no whales

The boat was comfortable. The crew was excellent. But, not a whale in site and only two dolphins. Nice boat ride though.

The Whale Watching for Grey Whales

It was fantastic. We actually saw a whale playing with dolphins. The whale would roll completely over, flapping it's flippers and the dolphins were jumping over the whale and actually jumping on the belly of the whale. The whale also fluked 4 times.

This was an amazing experience! The crew did an awesome job of pointing out different things for us to see and locating whales. The whales were unfortunately inactive, but the crew put our boat in the middle of a huge pod of dolphins. Amazing! It was inexpensive and I will definitely do it again the next time (and every time) I am there!
