Great crew, great dolphin sightings!
Tue, Apr 28, 09   10:00 AM BRUCEJAN Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
Having done some research and read others reviews, I went on this trip with the understanding that I may not see any whales this late in the season. I booked this trip because of the location to where I was staying, the price (half price Tuesday) and a recommendation from a family member who has taken the cruise before. I have to say, I was not disappointed! The crew were all terrific, the boat was clean & comfortable and the refreshments available were great. I also like the fact that if no dolphins or whales were sighted, you would be issued a credit for a future cruise. We were lucky enough to see seals and LOTS of playful dolphins. We spent a lot of time with them and our captain explained their feeding habits and general behavior. I would HIGHLY recommend this whale watch to anyone. You may not see whales, but you will have a wonderful day!

It is a memorable experience to see whales

It is wonderful to see these large gentle creatures. It would be a good idea if speed boats did not disturb the whales during the migration. You could also offer these trips to school students at discounted rates. Then local schools would organize whale watching trips. It would a good idea, if you could offer more adverturous SCUBA diving or snorkeling to see whales from under water.

Once in a lifetime experience

I went Whale watching from the Dana Point Harbor on March 14 at 9 am. Saw 3 whales. One of them breached 5 times. One of the whales started doing mating behaviors and we saw them mate. We even saw the whales give each other a hug as part of the mating behavior. Amazing!!! The guide was very knowledgable as well.

Fantastic Day!
Sat, Mar 7, 09   10:00 AM kellocklar Female 50-59 Local Individual
This is the third whale watching trip I've taken and the best I've been on. The longer trip (4 hours) meant we could go further out (and South) than we could have on a shorter trip. The group was a lot smaller than on the whale-watching boats and the structure of the catamaran means there are many great spots to watch from. The crew was friendly and the naturalist was knowledgable and enthusiastic. I enjoyed it so much that I'll be going back this summer for a blue whale experience!

No whales sighted

Unfortunately, on the whale watching trip, there were no whales sighted. It was disappointing but the crew was fantastic. Upbeat attitudes, good knowledge and always checking to make sure the passengers were ok.

Perfect day on the water, BUT no fish!
Tue, Feb 3, 09   10:00 AM antgutierrez Male 40-49 Unspecified Individual
Crew and Captain was great and helpful. Ended up fishing 3 or 4 different spots with only a few fish catching live mackeral on cut squid. Pelican's were a pest! Weather and water was perfect conditions, but fish were not biting. If I visit the area again (from N. Cali) I will definetely use this charter again. Thanks Anthony
