Whale Watching / Dolphins

We are from Wisconsin and purchased tickets in advance. This worked very well. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to cancel our 1200 reservation, but were able to quickly reschedule to the 1600 time slot by going online. The cruise was very nice, even though we did not see any whales. We were given the replacement tickets for a later date. (I'm not sure when we would use them.) Overall, still worth the trip! Thanks!!!

Whale watch tour

The 10-12pm Whale watch tour on Sunday, March 22 should have been canceled due to stormy weather and we should have gotten our money back. We saw no whales and the boat ride was very turbulent causing sea sickness. Upon realizing this the Dana Point whale watch tour canceled the remaining tours for the day. Not satisfactory.

The cruise was pleasant and the boat was very clean. The crew was also very friendly and helpful. We didn't see any whales but we did see dolphins and sea lions. All in all it was a very pleasant way to spend 2 hours .

We had a great time. George (in the galley) made my wife and daughter feel very welcome. My wife says that he "makes a mean burger". We didn't see any whales, but did see lots of dolphins and sea lions.

The boat and guides were terrific. We were able to see several whales. We saw hundreds of dolphins. The day was perfect in every way. Thanks for a great trip.

A Must Do in California

We went on the 2 hour Whale tour on March the 17th at 10:00 A.M. The boat ( Dana Pride) was neat and clean (ship shape, so to speak), smooth running and not over crowded. The capitan did a great job narrating. We actually found a couple of whales courting. Didn't really get to see to much of the whales. They don't get up and out of the water for pictures but we did find an awesome pod of about 1,000 dolphins and they were posing for pictures with their kids. The weather was great but a light jacket was needed. Great view of the shore. There was a small galley and the boat coffee was great. The dock area was neat and clean and sprinkled with shops.The trip was well worth the price.

We had a wonderful trip whale watching--I had tickets from a previous trip where we didn't see any dolphins and/or whales. However, this second time around we saw a pod of dolphins and two whales. The people who work with this company are very polite and accomodating--once we found the whales they followed them for approx. 20 mins so that we could see them up close. It was a great experience and I can't wait to bring my grandchildren back !! Thank you.

A Fun Time!!!

The only down side was that we did not find any whales on our excursion (the cruise just before ours had found one). However, it was more than made up for by the "jackpot" of dolphins we found. There were literally hundreds in a massive pod. They put on quite a show for us. Weather was beautiful and cruise employees were excellent.
