Great experience
Tue, Jan 11, 11   2:00 PM mzbadger Female 70+ Local Group of Friends
I've been on the boat many times. People who run it are knowledgeable, good communicators, know where to go to play with our whale and dolsphine friends. They love their work and I never tire of the joy of being out on the water, experiencing the peace and connection with all the elements and the sentient Beings of the sea. Last trip was a rare day when we didn't see any, and it was a great day anyway......and we get a rain check. How good is that!. MzB.

Great time had by all!
Tue, Jan 11, 11   2:00 PM rkeithbeal Female Unspecified Local Group of Friends
We were a group pf 40-50 people with a common interest, but we didn't all know each other. When asked later that night if we minded not seeing any whales or dolphins, everyone answered with a resounding NO! We had so much fun with each other, we didn't really miss them. AND, they refunded our tickets to come back another day! I believe they said they hadn't had a no-show run in 27 weeks. (?) This is a great activity for a meet-up or any kind of group to do something together. The Capt was informative and the crew wonderfully nice.

Great ship, great crew and great viewing. A very pleasant two hours exploring the Dana point seas and wildlife. Tuesdays are two for one days but a great bargain on any day. A snack bar with drinks, hot and cold, alcoholic and non completed the adventure.

It's interesting and worth seeing

I am a grandfather 75 years old. I went with my wife who is 66 years old. We moved around the boat with little trouble, even though it was rocky at times. We went in early January. There was a little wind, but that was expected. We knew it would be a little cold, so we dressed appropriately. The inside of the boat has snacks and drinks for sale. The boat has a very heavy zippered plastic covering on the sides of the boat that completely cover the inside of the boat. You could see out. It was warm in there. We stayed outside at times on the front of the boat and saw the whales as they swam around and made themselves visible to us. We also saw lots of dolphins, and some seals. For the money it is a wonderful trip. Took lots of photos to show our kids. Would recommend this to anyone young or old. Bud from Orange County, California.

The crew was awesome. They were not only friendly but really seemed like they wanted everyone to have a great time. We even went over our scheduled time to see a whale that we spotted towards the end of the tour.

The crew is very friendly and informative. The boat was nice and not too crowded so we were able to get a good view of all the sealife. It was something that we will keep on our list to take all of our out of town visitors on to see the wildlife of CA.

Best christmas gift ever

I gave this to my mom as a christmas present and even before we saw the two whales she told me this was the best present she had ever received. We are already planning our next trip. We saw whales and dolphins. Also the crew was great and the captain very entertaining. You won't regret your purchase.

We saw two Grey whales and thousands of dolphins. The crew stayed out an additional 15 min. for us to get good photos. The trip was well worth the money. My grand daughter was thrilled.

it was a wonderful and magical experience

The 2 hour tour seems to go by pretty quick from how really enjoyable the tour is. I got to see about 200 common dolphins which was amazing and magical! They swim sooo close to the boat so you can really see them up close. I saw some sea lions which was great aswell. I love the ocean, the fresh wind and animals so if you do as well, then this whale watching tour is for you. I absolutely loved it and plan on going on the tour again soon.

We will be going back again. The crew was friendly and well informed. The trip was amazing. Even though we did not see whales this time out, we saw a pod of hundreds of dolphins and groups of sea lions. It was well worth the price.

No grey whale sighting, but plenty of dolphins!
Sun, Jan 2, 11   12:00 PM Janograf Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
The crew was informative, the boat was comfortable (had exterior and interior/cafe seating). Too bad we didn't get to encounter any grey whales (went in early January during the season), but we did get to see a pod of bottle-nosed dolphins that stuck around with us for awhile and played with our boat! It was worth the trip.
