A great boat ride!

Staff were very accommodating and friendly on the phone and in person. We were on the catamaran and it was awesome! We saw plenty on dolphins but no whales;( but understandable, there's no predicting Mother Nature. We will be returning to use them again soon!

No whales and short on porpoises

It was a terrific day in Southern California to be on the water: clear, warm, beautiful!!! The boat and staff were great! We really enjoyed a nice cruise. Sadly, no whales -- not something anyone can guarantee, of course. Then, in the final 5 minutes of the cruise -- just in time to save the refund(!) -- we happened upon a couple of porpoises. As we disembarked, the staff wished each of us a Happy New Year AND reminded us over and over again that we had seen a couple of porpoises. I wouldn't have minded so much if the boat company weren't so blatant about protecting their refund policy.

Mega Pod of Dolphins - Great FUN!

After a valiant effort to locate a viewable whale, our captain headed further out to sea to discover a Mega Pod of Dolphins! Hundreds of them! It was amazing and they were all around the boat. Good fun! Great experience!

I cannot believe how many dolphins and whales we saw. It was beyond anything I was expecting. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. There was definitely some luck involved but I recommend it regardless. You will not regret.

a whale of a good time

four of us found it a delightful day to cruise and look for whales. We only found a pod of dolphin numbering over 1000, and the captain made sure we got to see them all. Crew was great, opening the galley for a late lunch. Nice trip even without a whale sighting. We'll do this again.

Awesome Date!

I booked a whale watching trip for our valentines day date. We went on the sunset cruise and it was wonderful. We got to see some fin whales and followed them for most of the trip. The sunset was beautiful, the crew was amazing! I would go back and do this trip again and again! Amazing experience!

Whale Watching and Dolphins

This crew was great. They knew exactly where the whales were. They kept a respectful distance and gave us a lot of information about the whales and dolphins. Will return when the blue whales are around.

Whale watching in Dana Point
Thu, Feb 19, 09   2:00 PM JOSIEPUGH Female 60-69 Combination Group of Friends
My friends came from Chicago and were staying in San Diego when they decided to go whale watching. I told them to come up here since it was more convenient to get tickets, get on the ship, and more pleasant surroundings. We went whale watching, and although we didn't see any whales(can't predict), we did see hundreds of dolphins, non stop. The ship was beatiful(Dana Pride), plenty of room to walk around or sit, inside or out. It was a beautiful day, the coastline was fabulous, and we got great pictures. My friends said it was an E ticket, can't get better than that.
