Were those blobs in the distance whales?

Although the tour guides were very enthusiastic about sighting two whales, my husband and I could barely see anything. That was the case although we had the best vantage point at the bow of the boat.. Other passengers had the same problem. They tried to take pictures of the whales spouting but the images were so small they looked like dots or were totally invisible.

Enjoyed seeing the whales very much.

My family was very pleased with the Whale Watching tour. The staff and captain were very nice and knowledgable about the whales and other sealife. We had a great time. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys being on the water and learning about whales, dolphins and other sea creatures.

A great time on the ocean

This was a great activity for families with kids. Seeing the blue whale was the highlight, and we watched it surface, swim, and dive several times. The one suggestion would be to have the driver not always direct the boat directly 'at' the whale - those of us who were not able to crowd up to the front of the boat had to look around and between everyone up front. Luckily the whale came up on the side of the boat once, allowing us a better look. Crew was pleasant and helpful.

Need more fishing time.

It was a great day but on a 1/2day trip, we spent way to much time traveling instead of fishing. We were in front of the Ritz Carlton catching a few when the Captn decided we would move to near the Pier in San Clemente, then back closer to the DP entrance.

Just returned from Alaska cruise and saw more and bigger whales than on all our trip including very expensive cruise excursions. Great boat and crew. Great value and lots of fun.

We went on the catamaran on July 16 at 2:00. We were with our 8 year old grandson who is from Arizona. We saw several pairs of Blue Whales, we saw a Fin Whale and a large school of dolphins. It was spectacular! The crew did a great job explaining everything to us, including the large red spot in the water aka whale poop! It was so interesting! Our grandson had a ball too!

We appreciated the efforts by the crew to find the whales especially when it looked like we wouldn't see any that day. The crew went further on the excursion than they normally would. Also, the guide gave lots of information on the ocean life we saw. Thanks for a great trip.

Grandpa & Grandma with Grandkids.

We had the best time with our 2 grandsons, 12 and 14 years old. Neither had fished much, so the crew was so helpful with them. We were talking with the boys and Grandpa said "this is kinda fun" the 12 years old said "Grandpa this is a Lot of Fun !" :). We had lunch, great cheeseburgers. (our hats off to the cook). Wonderful memories we will all have.

Could not have been better!

My family & I went on this excursion on a beautiful day in Dana Point. I read the reviews before booking this - they were all positive so I knew we would have a great time and we did. Boat was on time, captain informative, We spotted a blue whale (as well as many dolphins) and the captain pursued the blue whale for a long time to make sure we all had a good chance to see it. I would do this excursion again during whale season.
