Everything about the experience was excellent...from the crew to the cleanliness of the boat. The crew's ability to find Blue Whales and Dolphins was outstanding and the Captain's narrative along the way was especially valuable and not overdone.

Really enjoyed our time on the water

The whales were closer than I expected. The dolphins were so close to the boat that we could see their energy and playfulness. My nephew had taken the trip a month earlier and described the dolphins activity but until you see it it is hard to believe. The weather was perfect (sun, a light breeze, rolling waves but no whitecaps). We even learned a little about the whales habits and range.

We got an outstanding view and photos as an adult blue whale swam toward us within 100 ft and did a a fluke up dive. This is the closest blue whale fluke I have observed. The captain did a particularly good job of locating whales for us. I can post pictures on your web site of you desire

Great Whale Hunt!!!

Our first view of the whale spray was thrilling. The closer we got to her and her calf was exciting. It was amazing to be up close and to be able to see the mama whale and then her calf right behind her. Our captain was great to give us soooo much information about the blue whales and to get us over to them quickly. We were able to ride into a pod of dolphins and enjoy their playful attitude on our way back. The captain steered the boat around a buoy where sea lions were sun bathing and he gave us a lot of info on them. We saw thousand of pelicans. It was a most enjoyable trip and I highly recommend this company to everyone. Another company at this same dock was way more expensive and with this company we were able to take our whole family at a very reasonable price. Thank you so much.

Whale Watching

My wife and I and our 2 granddaughters went on the whale watching cruise this week. We took advantage of the half price Tuesday evening cruise. The weather was perfect, sunny, smooth, and the boat was very clean and comfortable. Thought we did not see a whale, we were most fortunate to see a school of bottlenosed Dolphins. The captain explained that this was a rare sight, as most Dolphins around Dana Point are know as common Dolphins. They are smaller the the bottlenose. It was very exciting to see all those huge bottlenosed Dolphins swimming along the boat with us, Many of them had baby dolpins with them. We highly recommend this whale watching excursion.

The cruise was very pleasant. Although it was near the end of the season and we saw only porpoises (not whales), it was a fun adventure and the cruise and fresh air were worth the trip. We also received free passes to take the cruise again (since we didn't see whales). It was a very smooth ride, and the crew were helpful and informative. We will definitely do this again, and bring more family along.

Took my grandson (19 yrs. of age) and the weather was a bit cloudy at the start, but the sun came out in the early afternoon. Fishing wasn't great, but most everyone caught fish. We met some nice people from Egypt and helped them with their fishing tackle as they had no saltwater fishing experience. The crew were all extremely helpful and patient with everyone. It was an enjoyable day on the water.

Great Show Put on by Hundreds of Dolphins

Although there were no whales in sight, the show that the hundreds of dolphins provided was great. The weather couldn't have been better and the information provided by the crew was most interesting. They were very patient with all of our questions. I never would have known that so many dolphins would be in a pod. Also the interesting way the birds gave the signal to the dolphins as to where the fish were was something I wouldn't have imagined. Great trip and I will be back hopefully to see a blue whale!

HI, We made this a family outing. Grandpa, grandma, three mommies, two daddies, nine kids from 3 to 15. It was the first time for many of the kids and they were excited to ride on the big boat. We saw lots of dolphins -- no whales this time -- and the weather was perfect. The crew members were courteous and helpful and friendly. The boat was neat and clean and in good repair. All in all, a fun experience for everyone. Thank you.
