The employees were all very nice. It was a slow morning for whales so the captain went out of his way to take us to a large pod of dolphins. I hope he didn't get in trouble for that. It was one of the coolest things I've ever seen and I think the rest of the passengers would agree. It's the second time I've taken the whale watching cruise and it's great fun.

I was expecting some grumpy crew men that do this every day. They were really nice, informative, and fun.

We didn't see any whales, but the views, dolphins, and crew were great!! We will go again in hopes of a whale of a good time. I don't know why we waited so many years to go. Remember, it is about 10% cooler on the ocean.

Beautiful day. The boat was large and comfortable, and on our day not many people on board so it was like a private tour. The crew were very nice and knowledgeable about the whales and dolfins that we saw and it was fun to learn new things about them. Get on board . . . everyone should experience this adventure.

We enjoyed a sunny day on the water last Sunday. Though no whales were seen, the 2 hour tour fit the bill for the attention span of my younger 2 kids (4 and 7 yrs) - though the 10 year old would have been more excited to actually see whales. We saw a beautiful pod of dolphins, some seals and sea lions. The fresh-grilled burger and BLT sandwich were awesome! The little kids loved the ring pops. Some families were experiencing seasickness but we did OK. I will consider a longer trip (one of the 3-4 hour ones) with just my 10 year old to increase our chance of seeing a whale. The boat seemed pretty full but we found an outdoor table with bench seats and then moved around to the sides when we wanted to get closer to view the dolphins

Although we didnt see any whales, we saw a LOT of dolphin. The boat was nice, the bathrooms were clean and the crew seemed knowledgeable and fun. We truly had an enjoyable time.

it was ok for the money spent

The boat ride was ok, it was a little under a 2 hour cruise up the harbor from dana point to laguna beach area. Didn't see any whales, the captain for the ship spent a lot of time following dolphins. Was not worth the money spent.

Sorry, but we did not get to go this time as I became ill with the flu on Monday. Sick for 5 days. Will schedule another time later.

We went on Valentines Day. We weren't sure if we would see anything but we saw one whale and a whole bunch of dolphins that were swimming right next to the boat. The crew was super nice and helpful. They knew exactly where to find the sea life. We even got to see the sunset. We would definitely recommend this to our friends.
