Newcomers run away.

Kids education before the 1/2 day noon trip was a farce. Not oriented towards totally first timers. The bathroom were dirtiest possible with no running water. The crew was busy amongst themselves, even fising themselves, smoking, joking. They did their basic job but not much more. Not guiding novice adults or kids. With so many options in SoCal why try this company again.

We enjoyed our whale watching adventure. The weather was delightful and the crew knew where to find an abundance of dolphins and whales for us to observe.

Boat trip on Dana Point
Fri, Nov 14  10:00 AM Pearlferret Male 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
This was quite an adventure. There was so much to see, where to begin? Best of all we spotted a humpback whale which was remarkable since it was in November! Another wonderful part of the tour was the large pod of dolphins that were swimming along side the boat. Then another type of dolphin species also joined in the act, swimming out a little farther. The captain of the boat was very informative on the different types of marine life we encountered. We also went by a large buoy that had 6 seals perched on top, & were able to get very close for perfect photo opportunities. I would love to do this again if in the area again.

These guys know what they're doing!

Our trip was wonderful - easy to book and we left on time. The boat had more than enough room on it for everyone to sit comfortably and see everything that was to be seen. My husband and I took our daughter and her fiancee' and we all had a wonderful time. The captain knew exactly where to go to find marine life. We saw a humpback whale and several hundred common dolphin. The trip would have been relaxing and worthwhile on its own, nut seeing such amazing creatures up close was incredible. Our daughter is a professional photographer and she captured some fabulous shots that will help us to always remember this adventure. WE would most certainly do this again.

Must admit, went on the tour not expecting to see much. First thing was a humpback whale, close up to the boat showing his fluke. The staff were great in explaining the different creatures as we landed on loads of dolphins and seals. They kept circling with the whale, he was there for the duration on and off. Brilliant. Wanted to go again but holiday time is against us. Will go again with these guys in the future for sure. A great day. Craig

Wonderfully enjoyable
Mon, Nov 3  12:00 PM renabeachbum Female Unspecified Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My daughter and I, having never been to or on the ocean, loved the whole experience. Can't express how exciting it was to see the two humpback whales!! Could have watched all day, and loved the dolphins swimming with and under the boat. Everything happening was well explained, and it was clear, the crew seemed to be enjoying it as much as we were! I appreciated that after so many years of taking people out to whale watch, it wasn't boring or ho-hum, to them. If you get a chance, I highly recommend this company!!

AMAZING Whale Watching, Dolphin watching and more
Sun, Nov 2  12:00 PM LisaDalgaard Female 40-49 Combination Group of Friends
We had an amazing experience. We were able to take our international guests out in October and still see a Minke whale and a sperm whale. The captain referred to him as Mr. October because he's been hanging around all month. We saw a ton of common dolphins that swam with the boat and followed us throughout our journey. Also saw seals or sea lions. Don't recall which ones. I live in Dana Point and had no idea we could still see this much sea life in October/November. They're also offering a discount right now on their website. We plan on bringing the next group of visitors for the holiday. The best 2 hours I've spent at sea in years!

The crew was very attentive to everyone on the boat and excursion. They were very accessible and helpful with repairing broken lines to helping all with catching fish. I highly recommend this charter service.

conquered my fear of traveling in open sea!!
Tue, Oct 28  4:00 PM LishaRox Female 30-39 Local Couple on a Date
The captain and crew are spectacular! LOVE how accommodating and friendly everyone is and how knowledgeable they are about any marine life that surfaces. It's worth it's weight in gold to go on this two hour tour. Beautiful day on beautiful waters! beautiful memories...and it helps that beers are only $3 and Turks is right in front of the landing to take care of any pre-ride jitters you might have...Just Spectacular!!! 5 big stars!! Only thumbs down about it is the boat has Wheelchair accessibility but the bathroom does not....it must be painful to have to pee and not be able to for that long.
