My parents were visiting from the East Coast, so we wanted to take advantage of the chance to see blue whales. We enjoyed a great couple of hours out on the Ocean Adventure, a fast, clean boat with a nice and knowledgeable captain. We caught sight of two blues, including a great show of one's tail--well worth the trip! One note: The parking was very full that day at the Dana Wharf location, but if you go into the whale watch office, you can obtain a day pass to park in a separate lot.

It was amazing all the dolphins and whales we saw. The crew were fantastic and helpful. I grew up in So. California but never did this adventure. We were visiting family and were looking for something different to do and this was it. Would highly recommend!

Best Pick of my Vacation!

I was a little leery about getting motion sickness. Took my dramamine and had a fantastic time. The captain did an awesome job explaining everything in detail and went out of his way to make sure we saw a blue whale. There were no words to explain the unbelievable view of the whale and dolphins. I highly recommend the trip and would do it again. Dana Point was beautiful. Thank you again to the crew for a fantastic memory.

Saw a majestic gray whale and numerous beautiful dolphins. It was peaceful to be on the water. The captain worked hard to find and follow the whale. Staff was friendly.

We saw more than expected!

We saw more than 20 dolphin right up to and under the boat. We had two whales that surfaces half a dozen times each and our captain was very aware of giving the whales space but positioning the boat for us to see the whales in detail. Great trip and will certainly go again if we have the chance.

Best experience we had on our California vacation!

Our family was excited to learn that Tuesdays were 1/2 price with this company on our vacation at the beginning of July 2013. It was a perfect excursion to take after a long day at Disneyland the day before. We had the amazing opportunity to have a large group of dolphins swim alongside the boat with us for a long time. That would have been enough to satisfy our land-locked family from New Mexico! However, the appearance of a majestic blue whale for about 4 surface visits while he was feeding was beyond imagination. The captain's description of these amazing creatures captivated and educated all of my family (my husband and I, our 17 year old son, and our 13 year old daughter). After we returned home, I heard my husband and each of my children going on and on about our "whale-watching trip"... Disneyland was mentioned briefly but THIS was definitely one of our most treasured memories from this vacation. You won't regret it!

Highlight of our vacation!

We've been out with this crew twice. Both times were wonderful! On the last trip we saw hundreds of dolphins. Some were riding the bow and I literally got splashed from one dolphin's spray. Three years later my kids still love telling this story. Our most recent trip was very windy and choppy, but completely worth the rough ride as we saw a blue whale and her calf. The captain and crew were all so knowledgeable and friendly (particularly Steve was right on the bow with us and just as excited). We are planning to make this a yearly excursion.

This was the second time for me.....we were lucky enought to see a "mega pod" of dolphins, a Minke whale and a sunfish....The boat captain was really into it and very knowledgeable. Seeing that many dolphins is something I will never ever forget....Best day ever
