Whale watching.

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.

Fishing off Dana Point Sucks

Id NEVER do that again. We stayed so close to the shore, that we couldn't get away from the pelicans, seals and dolphin. Needless to say, the only thing caught were the pelicans. It was quite sad too see all theses birds with hooks and lures stuck in their little pea brained heads. From now on, it's only full day boat fishing trips for me!

LOVED THAT YOU ARE CLOSER TO THE WATER ON THIS SHIP AND THEREFORE CLOSER TO THE MARINE LIFE. IT WAS JUST SO NICE TO BE OUT ON THE WATER - NO LUCK WITH SEEING WHALES :o( BUT THE BOAT RIDE WAS STILL VERY ENJOYABLE - NICE PEOPLE WORKING ON THE BOAT AS WELL!

We had a great time on the boat even though we didn't see any whales. We did see lots of playful dolphins and other sea life animals. The captain of the boat provided wonderful information about the sea life we were observing. It was a relaxing and fun day being out on the water!

Whale of a day (without whales)

While it was disappointing we had no whales on this trip, the Common and Bottlenose dolphins were in abundance and great to watch. The crew were very pleasant and kept us updated to what to watch for and what we might see. We were fortunate to have an individual on board very informed of marine information and were able to talk with him about many things. Looking forward to another trip in the future.

Excellent trip. Good presentation. You can't control the fishing, the weather or the whale watching.

We saw whales!

My mother, who was in town visiting for the week, and I decided to try whale watching since neither of us ever had. I wasn't sure how good the chances of actually seeing whales was, so when I found the half price Tuesday deal it seemed like no question! To us it would have been worth the 22 bucks just to be out on the ocean for two hours. But we started out visiting a family of dolphins who were extremely playful and swam after the waves of the boat and jumped out of the water right next to us. After, we visited a large blue whale who had been feeding in the area all morning! Our boat was 95 feet long and held probably 50-75 people and blue whales are the largest in the world! When they told us this whale was almost as long as our boat we were in awe! Of course we could not get extremely close to the whale, and we were ony able to catch its back arching out of the water. It spouts some air and arches for a few breaths before spending about 10 minutes at a time underwater, so it can be tricky getting close to them long enough. But they said they hadn't seen whales previously this season yet, so it would be worth it to go now if there's a chance!! Even to see the top of this animal and imagine its actual size is pretty unreal! It got a little crowded at the nose of the boat when trying to get a perfect view of the whale, but overall there was PLENTY of room for everyone to get a view as it was a large boat. I would suggest binoculars if you have them! All in all, a wonderful experience!

It was a quiet day but still saw a Blue Whale. What a fantastic site. The captain did his best for us to have a chance to see some sea life.

I thought it was fun, the captain was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately we did not get to see anything other than dolphins. I would definitely recommend the trip, hopefully you will have better luck finding some whales.

NO whales but still a nice boat ride
Tue, Jun 5, 12   12:00 PM Kgaucker Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We saw several sea lions sunning themselves, then some of the boat got a brief glimpse of a minki whale which the captain attempted to relocate but was unsuccessful. We moved onto some hot spots but didn't see anything again until the last few minutes of our trip, upon re-entering the harbor some of the boat saw dolphins. Since it wasn't a successful trip we all received a "whale check" to return for another adventure whenever we would like. We would all do it again.
