AMAZING and UNFORGETABLE!!!!
Sun, Sep 2, 12   4:00 PM CathyGronau Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
I highly recommend this whale watching adventure. We saw about a dozen whales up close and personal. The staff are extremely helpful, knowledgable and pleasant. It was SO much fun that I purchased their CD "7 Miles from Dana Point" (although the whales are SO close we only had to go 3 miles out) to support their efforts. Everyone on board had a jaw-dropping wonderful time! The catamaran was very comfortable, low to the water with higher standing platforms. It was just perfect! I plan on going again very soon! What an amazing and unforgetable trip of a lifetime!

Not too long, not too short - perfect for young children. You might want bring a strong lens if you plan to take good pictures. It was in the middle of summer which was great because it tends to be about 15 degrees cooler on the water. Get your cameras ready because there were quite a few that made appearances.

The captain only knew the basics about the whales we were out to find. When we got to a location, he said there were 3 whales in the area but we only followed one that could be identified -- Lefty. It would have been nice to have a naturalist or someone more in the know there to answer questions.

Whales, Whales Everywhere!

The skipper on our catamaran couldn't have been more right on in his sighting spots. There were whales all around us, and at a time close enough that you could reach over the rails and pat a Blue! There was also a very knowledgeable representative from the Institute of Cetacean Research who answered any and all questions, and provided additional information on the whales and their habits. Perfect trip!

We went out to find blue whales and found 3 of them with full view of them up close. Loved it. The boat and crew were super nice too. Just being out on the water on a comfortable boat made for a beautifully relaxing day.

Zerve.com was easy to use to plan our group Father / Daughter fishing trip. Great trip even if we caught only three small fish between the 8 of us. The girls had a great time any ways.

I don't think we could have seen more
Sat, Sep 1, 12   4:00 PM Alyssa1227 Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
The experience was great. We saw seals, multiple blue whales and a huge pod of dolphins and their babies. My husband and I went with a friend and our 2 year old and 4 year old. The only reason it is not 5 stars has nothing to do with the crew. It was just a bit rough on the water and the catamaran was a little more bouncy causing my 2 year old to get sick and myself to feel woozy. There were several people that were not feeling so great but the crew was very sweet.

Great whale watching experience
Sat, Sep 1, 12   2:00 PM MercedesC230 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Our experience overall was great. It was easy purchasing the etickets on line. The catamaran was roomy. I was able to go to the front once the trip started and ride the waves. Within a few short time we spotted and went towards 3 blue whales. The guide that rode with us on board was very informative and help us appreciate the event. As a 1st time seeing the 90-ft whales I was in awe of the magnificant light blue color displayed in the water around the whale. The ocean around the whale lit up. I got a little sea-sick while focusing on my camera and wish I took some pills or just point and shoot my camera. My wife and kids really enjoyed being close to these whales and look forward to do it again.

Our Blue Whale Watching experience was a great value and thoroughly enjoyable. The crew were very knowledgeable regarding the whale. I have alot of experience with nature, the ocean and a variety of sea life but learned new tid bits which is always exciting.
