An enjoyable adventure for our family

We had a great time and saw a blue whale come up several times between dives. It was worth the money we spent, and got some great pictures... Enjoy!

Too many people on the same boat
Sun, Aug 7, 11   6:30 AM G_Polizzi Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
Too many people on the same boat, the engine on all the time making noise that probably did not help attracting fish, the chances to get anything were really low. I don't think I would repeat his experience.

Crew was polite, attentive and knowledgeable. Even our twelve year old granddaughter felt welcome and included. Would go again and would recommend to others.

While the boat ride is OK.....the activity should be called "Dolphin watching" not Wale Watching.....if you happen to see a wale well does great......2 hrs of not much to see other than your occassional dolphin....

The Battle with the Pelicans
Fri, Aug 5, 11   12:00 PM JoeGrayston Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Good fun with my son. I didn't expect to have so much trouble with the birds staged next to the boat ready to take your bait, along with your hook as soon as you try to put it in the water. The deck hands were good at pulling the birds, mostly pelicans, up and removing the hook. The crew was helpful and the beer cold.

Better value than the movies
Wed, Aug 3, 11   5:30 PM kemmerm Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
So for 5 hours you can be out on the water, eating a burger and having a good time. maybe even catch some fish for dinner. You can even go to the movies for that kind of price.

Fish not biting but a nice morning on the water
Wed, Aug 3, 11   6:30 AM lennoxes Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
The ocean dropped 10-degrees in a week, so the fish weren't biting, but we had a nice day. One crew member, who seemed to be new, was not at all customer oriented. The captain took him aside at the start of the trip, but to no effect... Otherwise a nice time. My 12-year old son can't wait to go again!

Very fun trip!
Tue, Aug 2, 11   5:00 PM Snikonchuk Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
I took my two boys, who are 10 and 3, and my parents on the whale watching trip. The crew was very knowledgeable and nice. We should have been on the boat for 2 hours but it turned into 2 and a half hours because we kept seeing more whales! The captain didn't want us to miss one! The boat was clean and nice. There wasn't a lot of seating of course but if you feel you need to sit for the entire ride I would suggest getting in line about a half hour before your boat is to leave.

Wonderful Excursion

We took the family, 3 adult children and our 6 year-old grandson, on the Whale Watching trip out of Dana Point and all of us were thrilled with the experience. The crew was great and, best of all, we saw 3 whales and lots of dolphins. One of the highlights of our vacation!!

A wonderful time and lots of Whales
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Aug 2, 11   12:00 PM BevGrandia Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
I've lived in the Inland Empire all of my life and I've never been Whale Watching. I took my grown daughter and her three sons (my grandsons), ages 3 1/2 months to 14 years. We all had a blast. We all learned a lot about the Whales from the Captain and his helper. The boys didn't know if they would like it or not, they didn't, they loved it. The day we went out was a bit windy and the boat was rocking some. The baby has never felt his stomach feel that way and was laughing so much I had to take a video of it. The Captain went out of his way to find Whales, Dolphins and Sea Lions for all of us. He wanted to make sure we had a memorial time and we did. Everyone from check in to leaving was wonderful. I wasn't sure how the staff would react to an infant and a stroller, but they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Thank You All. B.Grandia
