Thar she blows!

Couldn't have asked for a more pleasure able experience! As soon as we boarded we were greeted warmly by the crew. While we waited for the captain to start our excursion, a naturalist ( Irene), who was part of the crew that day, took the time to introduce herself and if we had any questions about the wild life we were about to see she wod be more than happy to answer them. Once were out to sea it did not take long before we saw a large pod of dolphins. That was very thrilling for my children and everyone else on board. While we enjoyed the care free fun the dolphins were having in the water the captain shared very informative facts about the type of dolphin we were observing. When we moved on, the captain took us on a fast boat ride to catch a couple of whales...that was fun too. Once we caught up with the whales he kept a respectable distance behind the whales. Those 2 particular whales were "courting" n we were the spectators. We saw them fluke a few times, which was exciting. Again, while we watched the activities in the water, the Captain shared his knowledge about the gray whales. On our way back to the dock, we took advantage of the naturalist on board and we might of monopolized her for a little longer than we probably should of but the kids n I got all of our questions answered. We had a fantastic time!

The crew and captain were very polite and knowledgeable. The captain happened to spot some grey whales and headed toward them rather than going to a spot where there were already a lot of boats waiting for Fin whales to surface. We saw dolphins just after we left the harbor and they slowed the boat so we could get pictures and watch them. We were able to see 2 grey whales mating and were the only vessel out there. We spent probably a half hour watching and following them. A large pod of dolphins were in the area and we were also able to watch them. The captain also was very informative about the whales and dolphins which added a lot to the trip.

Captain explained grey whale migration habits, how they live, breed and their comparison to other whale family members. Sited two grey whales almost immediately out of the harbor! Beautiful day, great boat--very clean--and a good crowd on Valentine's Day--but not overcrowded.

This is a 2 hour boat tour in the beautiful Dana Point harbor and the opportunity to see many schools of dolphins swimming and playing in the ocean as well as seeing a whale. Our tour was guided by a very knowledgeable and passionate individual who truly enjoyed speaking and educating us about aquatic living, eating habits of the animals, migration of the whales and the every day life of the dolphins, whales, sea lions and other animals seen during our venture. His passion and excitement for leading these tours made it very educational and enjoyable for everyone on the venture. Great job and highly recommended to everyone considering this awesome adventure and we will definitely do it again next time in the area!

Even though we didn't get to see any whales that day, we did see a lot of dolphins and sea lions. The guides were really informative and it was so much fun to see the dolphins in their natural habitat. Since we didn't see any whales, we got our tickets back to come another day. I would highly recommend!

Little ones had a blast being on a boat and seeing a gray whale. After watching the whale for about thirty minutes, the skipper then took the tour to see a pod of approximately 1000 dolphins. Seeing all the dolphins made our little ones excited. Would definitely return and recommend.

Terrific experience. Saw 2 gray whales, a pack of sea lions, and even had a pod of dolphins swimming with our boat. The food on board was very good, and the prices weren't raised like you might expect. Make sure to pack some Dramamine, though, they don't have any available for purchase on board.
