Saw only a small part of a gray whale. However saw several playful, jumping dolphins. The Captain worked very hard at searching for sea creatures. His narration was excellent.

Two of us went on Jan 2nd at 10am. The fog had gone out to sea and it was cold but sunny. The captain was in touch with other boats so we headed to where a whale was reported. She was pretty far out but we could see the water sprout from her blowhole. That was exciting, but then we saw two on the land side of the boat spouting water. One had to catch up with the one further away, but then they were swimming in tandom and decided to go deep for food. THAT'S WHEN THE TAILS COME UP! It was spectacular to see both of them swimming and diving together. The captain gave us a history lesson and explained what the whales werie doing, where they were going & why, and when they would return. He was very good! My friend had gone out several times but only seen the spouts. Boy was she excited to see the tails! I came to CA for the Rose Bowl Parade & then we decided to go whale watching on the next day. I'm so glad we did! I will always remember the whales much more than the parade. A wonderful way to begin the new year.

We were able to see a gray whale for an extended period of time as he traveled south. Then we were able to experience a large pod of dolphins swimming close to the boat . It was such a special experience.

The boat was the perfect size, not to crowded. The captain was so knowledgable, we learned so much! We saw hundreds of dolphins, the 2nd largest whale in the world and sea lions! We had such an amazing tour!!

Crossed Off My Bucket List
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

It was a nice November afternoon in Laguna Niguel. We were celebrating my bestfriend's birthday so as a group we went whale/dolphin watching. We got there early since its recommended to do so since the boat leaves promptly when it arrives to board the passengers. We board around 3pm and came back to the harbor a little after 5pm. The experience was wonderful. The scenery and the environment is beautiful. You're on out in the dark blue ocean, with seagulls flying beside the boat, as well as other boats scouting the surface waters as well. Then the moment that you wait for comes....dolphins galore!!! Such a neat sight to see as these are such graceful creatures that glimmer in the sunlight as their bodies are coated with ocean water. We unfortunately did not spot any whales during our adventure. If we had gone weeks earlier I'm sure we would have. There is a season for everything. I definitely recommend going especially if you've never done it before. If you want it romantic, bring a date. If you want to have a little more fun and involvement with more people, bring a group of friends. No matter what, make sure you bring a warm coat and a camera. You don't want to miss out. P.S. There is an area downstairs of the boat that serves alcohol and snacks as well as hot chocolate and popcorn. That was indeed the icing on the cake.

Good fun and very educational trip. Didn't get to see any whales but loads of dolphins made up for it.

It was a beautiful trip up the coast of Dana Point. We found ourselves surrounded by over 1,000 dolphins, who stayed with the boat for over an hour. The boat is a large, clean catamaran with a very professional crew. I highly recommend this company.

Disappointing day overall

Captain took us to three spots and fish were minimal. There were six of us at the front of the boat and the staff did not want to put bait in the front...instead they said that there is plenty of room in the back to fish. Not true. We had to walk back and forth each time for bait. I do not recommend nor will I go back.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and then sometimes you win the star! The cat is easy to move in search of whales, and boy did we move. We saw the "tail" the ultimate in a whale watching trip. We saw so many whales that I lost count, several couples, and that was neat. The commentary by the Captain,was informative, interesting, and fun. You should go just for the lesson. We had guest from Tenn. and friends said " yeah yeah, sure you will see whale" They called everyone with excitement of the trip. Thank you for always kicking the bar up and making the experience better, I love the new boat.
