Amazing day on the water!

Had some friends in from Iowa looking to escape the cold winter weather. Thought whale watching would be a great day trip. I honestly worried it wouldn't be worth the money, but I was happy to be proved wrong. We had a great time. Just being out on the water in calm seas and sunshine would have been worth the price of admission, but we got so much more. We saw hundreds of dolphins and then were lucky enough to find three grey whales traveling together. At one point they surfaced just 10 feet of the bow of the boat...Amazing!

Amazing Time on the Water

This was an exceptional experience! We actually found a late south bound grey whale and followed it for a while during interesting commentary from the crew. The various boats correlate with each other so if there is anything on the water, it is very probable that you will see it. Then the captain took us to see a "super pod" of dolphins that went for two miles down the coast. The dolphins swam in the current from the boat and we took amazing video of them playing and "talking". I know this type of sighting doesn't happen all the time but it was the most amazing experience I could have ever expected, the super pod of dolphins made it :)

I can't wait to go again! Reasonable prices, tons of surrounding shops and eateries on the water, the captain and crew were not only incredibly knowledgeable but so much fun as well! Did YOU know baby dolphins look like footballs with fins? I do, thanks to the Captain of the Clemente. :) Highly recommend to anyone of any age. I went with a friend, but lots of couples and children as well. Fun for everyone! And they passed out discount vouchers for next time to all of the passengers when we exited the vessel after our tour!

whale "searching"

Hi was a beautiful day in Dana Point, so just the weather and being in the ocean air was great:) The crew and the boat, ship, was great, smiling faces, explanation of what was going on, clean very clean:) A little dissappointed that we didn't get to see a whale, but that's why I titled it Whale "Searching" the day was great and we were one of the boats that got to go through, literally, through dolphins, soooo many that was quite a site. Great time will do it again soon before the season ends and hope will be able to see a whale, thanks!!

Great idea for a family vacation

My family was in from out of town, and wanted to go whale watching. I found this boating service and I must say it was great! The price was fantastic, and the crew was very friendly and actually stopped the boat when my mother saw a whale. We were able to see a gray whale, and dolphins. The dolphins were the highlight of the trip for the small kids we had with us, they loved that they were swimming right next to the boat.
