Few fish caught, but nice day for a cruise. Crew was friendly and professional. We had a group of 10 adults and boy scouts from Lake Arrowhead, Ca. and all had fun.

See above - we did see Dolphins & Sea Lions. Had 2 adults and 7 and 9 year old girls. Is there anyway of predicting whales will show up?

We were pleasantly surprised. The boat was large and comfortable, the crew and Captain were outstanding! We already made plans to do this again in July. Can't wait to see the Blue Whale's :)

The day we went we did not see any whales and saw 5 dolphins from a distance. Because of this we were given free passes to do another tour any time in the future. The captain was well informed and able to describe the dophins etc. We would do this tour again.

Amazing day on the water!

Had some friends in from Iowa looking to escape the cold winter weather. Thought whale watching would be a great day trip. I honestly worried it wouldn't be worth the money, but I was happy to be proved wrong. We had a great time. Just being out on the water in calm seas and sunshine would have been worth the price of admission, but we got so much more. We saw hundreds of dolphins and then were lucky enough to find three grey whales traveling together. At one point they surfaced just 10 feet of the bow of the boat...Amazing!

whale "searching"
Sun, Mar 13, 11   12:00 PM fivecjs12345 Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
Hi was a beautiful day in Dana Point, so just the weather and being in the ocean air was great:) The crew and the boat, ship, was great, smiling faces, explanation of what was going on, clean very clean:) A little dissappointed that we didn't get to see a whale, but that's why I titled it Whale "Searching" the day was great and we were one of the boats that got to go through, literally, through dolphins, soooo many that was quite a site. Great time will do it again soon before the season ends and hope will be able to see a whale, thanks!!

Everything You Would Want It To Be

New boat in great condition, very clean. Friendly, knowledgeable crew. Convenient snack bar and bathrooms onboard. Viewing area in the front of the boat is a little limited but, otherwise, very nice boat to go whale watching on.

The store staff was rude. The boat staff was great

Went to get our tickets and the cashier was shoving food in his mouth and said,"What do you want" as half his breakfast hit the counter. He found our tickets and we asked "okay where do we go?" A female barked out, "where do you think" and pointed around the corner to several boats in the dock. How about,"I'll be with you in a second?" Or it's the boat with the name of ...on the back. very UNPROFESSIONAL. On the other hand, the boat staff was awesome! They narrated the whole trip and apologized several times because we saw something but lost it. It wasn't their fault but they felt like it was. They really offered a lot of info and even gave us a refund to come back again! That is the ONLY reason I'd come back; definitely not for the sale people. They (cashier) treated us and others like we were interfering wiith their day by showing up.

Good service, no sights
Sat, Mar 12, 11   9:00 AM arschmidt Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
As we were advised on the way out of the harbor, whales and dolphins don't always cooperate and that was the case for our trip. Although a sister ship reported some whales "showing well" and we could see some spouting in the distance, by the time we got out there, the whales had obviously decided to go elsewhere. There were no other sightings of anything. The staff and crew were helpful and the captain was informative. We were given "whale checks" to come back another day and will certainly do so and hope for better luck.

Fantastic way to spend a few hours!

I do this trip often and I am never disappointed! The boats are spacious and comfortable, the guys know more than a thing or two about sea life and they are always kind, helpful and courteous. Just an experience of a lifetime!
