This was a wonderful tour! The crew was knowledgeable and informative about the area marine life. We spotted two grey whales that we followed for a time, a school of dolphin swam with our boat and we got to see sea lions basking on a bouy. We are ready to do it again!

This "tour" exceeded all expectations. The crew was helpful, polite and patient. Have been on other whale watching vessels but they pale in comparison. Was not disappointed in the sightings and the pilot of the vessel knew exactly where to go for the ultimate experience. Also provided was overall education about whales, habitats, etc. That was quite enlightening and appreciated. Whales and dolphins were spectacular. Will definitely go again.

OUr first day was canceled because of high winds- so next day tried again. GOt on the boat but it was windy and chilly, no whales . . . . sea lions, dolphins, but no whales. WE had 9 in our group and 3 of us barfed!. Hmmmmm. Probably wouldnt go again, although the crew was friendly and informative and gave us tickets to come back again any time and try to see the whales but all in all. . . . wouldn't do it again.

No whales, but had fun anyway.

We didn't see any whales on our trip. My kids were disappointed at first, but it was still a very enjoyable 2-hour boat ride. We had a great burger and enjoyed the sun and breeze. The guarantee is very generous and we plan to return to take advantage of that whenever those whales decide to head to Dana Point!

This is the 3rd or 4th time I have taken one of these cruises. ALWAYS a good time, knowledgeable captains and crew, clean boats and good times!! We saw dolphins, and the captain made sure we got to see blue whales--in fact kept us out a little long just to follow them. Can't wait to do it again!!
