Two Very Enjoyable Hours on the Water

This was our second sunset whale-watching cruise. We did it a few years ago, so you know we liked it enough to want to repeat. Our first trip we saw a lot of dolphins who were so cute playing with us right close to the boat. Our recent trip we got to see a whale, and we were very excited. It was amazing. We loved the whole two hours on the sea. It felt just great, and my grandchildren got some wonderful pictures of the whale surfacing and diving. Fantastic!!

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 to state that fishing was fair to poor

Would have been nice to know that anchovies were not available & that the catch has been poor in recent days.

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.

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

I'd gone Whale-watching about a month ago, out of Newport. It was awful. Wet, smelly boat. No whales sighted... not one! A few dolphins, some sea lions... no biggie. So when my friends suggested we try it again, I was less than enthusiastic. But they said they'd heard that Dana Point was having sightings, so I agreed. Lemme tell ya folks, I was NOT disappointed!!!!! We saw bunches of whales... Blue whales!!! A truly fascinating experience, loved every minute of it!!! I would HIGHLY recommend the Dana Point whale-watching to ANYONE!!! The Catamaran was especially nice, not too crowded... allowed everyone a great view of these magnificent creatures!!! The crew was nice, and very informative... unlike the experience at Newport. I can't wait to go again, and my friends all feel the same!!! FIVE stars... without hesitation!!!

A beautiful day of blue whales close by and dophins swimming under and around the boat. Friendly and helpful crew. The large catamarian much more fun than a big boat.

It was the fishes fault. Captain got us to the fish and detailed them underneath. Fish just weren't biting that night
