This was basically a boat ride close to the coast. Not even a remote sight of a whale took place. End of January is supposed to be a good time for watching whales but no cigar. I saw a lot of dolphins though but the ride is for watching whales, not dolphins. The company tried to make up for the lack of whales by offering a a 50% coupon on the next ride. LOL. Do they really think people are that stupid?

The crew was helpful and informative. We had a perfect day. The water was calm and we received a lot of information. We didn't catch a glimpse at any whales.

Hello Everyone, Thanks so much for a wonderful afternoon. I took my whole family whale watching and everyone had a blast. Although there were no whales we found the crew both friendly and knowledgeable. There was enough sea-life to make it memorable and a couple hours at sea was great. I have and will recommend this to anyone. We had such a great time we will probably be back in March for another chance to hopefully see whales. Thanks again!

This was a fun tour even though we didn't see any whales. We did see a few different species of dolphin as well as sea lions!

We didn't see any whales for almost 1.5 hours. At that point we saw many, and so they actually extended the tour so we could view them longer. That was unexpected and appreciated. The lower area of the boat where the snack bar is could be upgraded a little. It's not a very nice area. I'm sure most people stand outside, but if you want a place to sit for a while it should be a little nicer.

It was a very nice day off of Dana Point and the captain was very informative knowing that 2 whales were spotted heading our way. He made sure we were able to see them. The dolphins, 2 unfortunately, swam under the boat each time I tried to snap a shot of them. All in all a great day! Highly recommend going out of Dana Point.

A great place to take an out of town visitor

This is a gem of a place to take an out of town visitor. On our trip, we were able to see a whale (a part of it at least), and many many dolphins. The ship was nice, the crew were laid back, and they were eager to find the whales---and get us close to view them. The experience was amazing---and we'll definitely be back when other people come visit us.
