We spent too long looking at the common dolphins. I felt like we should have moved on to find the whales.

Great boating adventure at an affordable price.

We had a wonderful time! The crew was very helpful and gave us all the facts on the wildlife we saw during our Catamaran ride. We didn't see any whales but we did see hundreds of dolphins as they swam along side the boat for quite some time. It was an incredible experience that we will definitely plan to do again the next time we visit Dana Point. I highly recommend this adventure and taking advantage of 1/2 price Tuesday's made it affordable for us to do something out of the ordinary during our stay at the beach.

We saw lots of dolphins and were told which kind they were and the routines of the dolphins. The boat was very clean and the crew very knowledgeable. Well worth the money..

Strange adventure

We did the half day fishing trip. It was fun but not what I thought it would be. We caught a couple small fish. The birds that follow were so annoying. The seals were cute but really... How are you supposed to catch fish when seals and birds are trying to take your bait and get your catch before you get in the boat. The water was choppy and I personally think we should have gone out farther to get some real fishing done. If I'm going to stand up for 5 hours and pay what I did I sure hope they would try to take you where you have the best chance to catch some decent fish. The crew and people in the store we nice and helpful. Pretty area but next time I will do something more productive.

We had friends visiting us in San Clemente from the mid-west and we thought that a good outing with them would be a whale watch cruise. We enjoyed the cruise just as much as our friends did. The captain and crew were friendly but professional. They wanted us to have a good time and see some sea life. The weather was gorgeous, the sea was glassy and we saw several different groups of dolphins and a whale! The time passed quickly and before we knew it the 2 hours were over. We will be returning.

Great little Getaway
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

What a great way to get on the water, enjoy the SoCal sun, and experience nature! The staff are friendly and helpful. The boat is just big enough and not crowded. From the time you leave the dock it is a wonderful and relaxing experience. You never lose sight of land even though you go out about a mile. The contrast of open sea ahead and mountains to the rear makes you realize how amazing California is. As your eyes scan the horizon for the tell-tale "puff" of a whale you note the deep greens and blue of the water. Suddenly there dolphins breaching just ahead! Take some videos with your phone so you can re-live the motion as well as the action. 2 hours is just enough..and if you don't find whales the company gives half off coupons for the next trip you take, and once you've gone out there will definitely be a next trip! Grab some food at Turk's either before or after your trip. Great bar with food place, lots of atmosphere that will remind you of days past, and delicious food!

Beautiful and relaxing. Only thing that would have made it better was a whale! Saw literally a hundred dolphins.

I loved this boat trip. It was a very nice celebration of the equinox with the dolphins, great people, friends and music. The captain took us straight to the dolphins and made our experience very magical.

While we didn't see any whales, we did see several large pods of dolphins who swam alongside the boat. The guide was very informative about the marine life we saw and answered any questions we had.
