The boat captain was very knowledgeable, and the boat was comfortable. We were lucky enough to see 2 blue whales and hundreds of dolphins. It was terrific!

We really enjoyed our trip. This is the second time I have taken my family on this whale watching trip - it was even better the second time around. We lucked out and managed to see several whales and too many dolphins to count, but I really have to hand my compliments to the boat captain. He was extremely knowledgable, and his interesting commentary really made the trip extra special. He clearly knows his stuff. In addition, he went above and beyond to manuver the boat to give us good views of whales without disturbing the animals. If I have any criticism of the trip, it would be that the boats are a bit crowded. The only time this is really a problem is when you are trying to see a whale (which is obviously why you go on this trip in the first place) -there just isn't enough room for everybody on the ship to have a decent view. All in all, well worth the money. Highly recommend.

My family and I had a fantastic time on the Whale watching tour. It was a great day for whale watching. We saw about 5 or 6 whales and a ton of dolphins. It was the highlight of our vacation.

Truly enjoyed the excursion! We saw dozens (maybe hundreds) of dolphins and about 5 blue whales. I don't remember the Captain/Guide's name but he was very knowledgeable and informative. Cheeseburgers from the galley not bad either. 1/2 price Tuesdays are a great deal!

We had a group of 5 on the boat "reel fun" I didn't catch anything but still had a fun time with my buddies. this was the 3rd time on this boat and night fishing is a lot of fun and my group will be returning time and time again. this crew was there when the people needed them and let you fish how you wanted to.

There were four adults and five kids. Some seasickness but everyone really enjoyed the adventure. Some are still talking about this as a highlight of their trip to Southern CA. Thank you!

Incredible Life Experience!!!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone! We saw numerous whales, and the captain provided a lot of interesting information about them. He followed them, announced where to look for them, what to look for. We saw blue whales and they spouted water through their blow holes, and got to see their tales as they dove. The captain found out about a large group of dolphins so he took us to that area. There were dolphins everywhere!!! They were jumping, and swimming beside the boat. It was an incredible site to see! Great afternoon, with a clean, friendly staff.

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!

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.
