Cool trip

I thought I would be disappointed since it wasn't blue whale season (it was gray season) and it was my brother in law's first time in California but luckily we had a very rare chance to see a hump back whale. The tour guide said in the 25+ years he has been doing this, it was only his 6th time seeing a hump back whale. That was definitely cool.

Great time and did not see much for over one hour, then captain announced he spotted two humpback whales and we sped to the area, Oblerves two humpbacks traveling together.. Later observed minke whale and some sea lions, Also captain oblerved grey whale, but it was near the end of our time and had to return. Great time, and would redcommend to anyone, If you do not see something, you can return for free!!

Good tour, missing a close encounter with whales.
Wed, Jan 23, 13   2:00 PM Anubhavsony Male 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The tour did took us in open sea's where whales were, but the whales were not co-operating and just saw tail 2-3 times. Saw Dolphins and sea lions very closely, but would have loved to see the whales in 40-50 yard distance. The tour manager tried to get us close but we were always 200-300 yards away.. so what we saw was a little part of the whales. He could have tried to take us little far from the harbor where we may have found some whales interested in playing and showing. It is a good season for whales and their are a lot in that area. Would have certainly liked going farther to see the whales. He could have taken us farther in with larger concentration of whales, rather than chasing a whale and a baby whale close to harbor.

I would like to suggest if you can improve your inside setting bench bit lower will be more safe for elder people. My parent and other couple fall down from bench when they get up from the seat. Also the cushion is slippery not steady. Rest of activity is very good. C Lynn

Great lot of fun

Dana Point is a beautiful area, the wharf is interesting and fun, and the Wind and Sea restaurant on the wharf had yummy soup and fresh calamari to warm us up after the trip. We had a great time and will certainly do it again, and recommend it to friends and out-of-town visitors.

Whale watching

We were lucky enough to observe a mother and her newborn baby on this whale watching trip. The captain's explanation of the whales we were observing and their migration habits was very helpful. Overall a very enjoyable cruise.

Tue, Jan 8, 13   12:00 PM dgoldberg624 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
the captain kept up a commentary and seemed to be very knowledgeable about marine life, in particular whales. They have high success rate of finding whales because they track them as they travel down the coast. He found a whale from another boats spotting by going down the coast about thirty miles. H ethen spotted on his own an unreported mother and baby whale on the trip back. Because we were heading back he extended trip about 15 minutes for us to view the mother and baby. Check for internet coupons. Tuesday is usually half price. Buy tickets at least a few hours in advance on weekends and holidays as they do sometimes sell out. They have food, drinks and bathroom on board. Ship is clean. It is small ship so avoid this (and all whale tours) if you get seasick.

The crew was so knowledgable and fun. The was beautiful - couldn't have asked for a better experience. Saw some gray whales, the crew explained so much - not too crowded - absolutely I would recommend to family and friends.

Fin-again, and again

Whale watching is unpredictable, so don't expect to see the same show as the previous tour group - these whales are on the move - and fast! I was disappointed to only see 1 fin whale, but that's nature! There is great information about whales from the tour guide while waiting for "fin-again" (fin whale) to surface. I learned quite a bit, eventhough there wasn't much to see. We were lucky, however, to ride up on a huge pod of dolphins. It was just like DiCaprio in"Titanic", but much better!

We were able to follow a female Gray Whale for quite some time, and she kept fluking every few minutes. We also saw a pod of several hundred common dolphins with babies. This was our first time ever seeing whales and dolphins in the wild, and we were very pleased with the trip and the crew. Thank you!

My husband & I are locals who never took advantage of this wonderful resource right on our own backyard until this past week. We had a wonderful time on the whale watching tour and found our captain to be so interesting and very knowledgeable about the sea life in the area. The boat ride was great and the crew were friendly & helpful. We plan to come back again as soon as possible to see more whales and dolphins!
