Slow Fishing and Crowded
Sun, Apr 18, 10   12:45 PM rynousa Male 30-39 Local Family Without Children
Fishing was slow and lots of people on the boat. Too many kids. Parents just let their kids run wild. I have done this trip many times in the past with great success, but this time was probably the worst.

We loved the cruise
Thu, Apr 15, 10   12:00 PM lindam1228 Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
We had a blast. The captain was very good at getting the views of the sea life, dolphins-two types, and of course the mother whale and calf. The information he supplied was informative. The crew was great with the information and safety tips given. He had us all laughing. A thoroughly enjoyable trip.

The trip was a little over two hours and we got to see about thirty common dolphins and a half a dozen sea lions. It was a lot of fun and the staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. I would definitely do this again if I didn't get sea sick!!

It was out of your control if there are no whales, you did try to find some for us and we will be back to look for some again soon... Loved seeing the other wildlife and the overall trip and experience. Just can not give you the 5 STARS without seeing the whales. Thank you !! We DO RECOMMEND this trip to everyone !!!!!!

Dolphins at a Discount
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

Went on the Whale/Dolphin watch cruise Tuesday 4/13. It greatly exceeded our expectations. While we did not see any whales, we did see and enjoy 600-800 dolphins jumping and playing for an extended amount of time. We were on the 12:00 cruise and were delighted with the accomodations and crew. The crew could not have been more knowledgeable and entertaining. The cruise, alone, was worth the money. The added plus of seeing so many dolphins and listening to the crew members was a bonus. When we are in California again, this is a must attraction for us.

Worth the money...

We saw 2 fin whales and many many dolphins. We didn't get too close to the whales for fear of frightening them, and we only saw their dorsal fins. The pool of 66 dolphins is what made this trip worth the money. Should be called dolphin watching not whale watching.

Great Day!
Sat, Mar 27, 10   10:00 AM hghassey Female 30-39 Local Family Without Children
We had a wonderful day - beautiful weather with fantastic views of the animals... The captains were very knowledgable and personable and the boat itself was great. I am four months pregnant and had to throw up... The crew were so sweet and fixed me a cold drink right away - I highly reccomend this as it far exceeded my expectations for the price - I will definietly bring my four year old next time - there were several young kids on the boat who appeared to be having a really fun time:)

Great Saturday afternoon!!
Sat, Mar 20, 10   2:00 PM lilsch Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
Our whale watching experience was wonderful!! we saw two grey whales, with the captain following them for over half an hour, it was exciting to watch as they breached the ocean and gave us a peek at these beautiful creatures. After the whales, we also got to see what seemed to be hundreds of dolphins, playing and jumping to keep up with the boat. All in all a very enjoyable afternoon.. and purchasing the tickets ahead of time with Zerve made the day very easy tp put together at the last minute..

Accommodating crew searched for and found WHALES!!

We thought this was an interesting outing, well worth reduced senior rates. Left on time; returned a little late because the captain kept searching for whales. We saw them, as well as lots of nearby dolphins. Great fresh seafood on the wharf. Nice outing for visitors.

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND VERY REASONABLE COST
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Mar 16, 10   2:00 PM THADDEUS8 Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife and I were visiting as tourists from Arizona in Laguna Beach. We had driven down the coast to Dana Point Harbor where we became aware of the Tuesday Special whale watching cruise. The cost was more than reasonable at 1/2 the regular price and we signed on. The Dana Pride is a very well appointed and well maintained boat and the crew was very experienced- - -not only in maning and operating the boat, but expert in dealing with people who were their guests on the cruise. A remarkable point in that was their helpful and compassionate assistance with 5 people in wheel chairs who went on the cruise. Throughout the 2 hour cruise our very able Captain educated us with the ecology of the sea, migration habits of the whales and soon found two grey whales migrating north. The Captain pointed out that sea mammals, including the Gray whales we saw are protected by law. A number of speedboats and personal watercraft were there and operating their crafts far too close to the whales. Our Captain used the boat's loudhailer to warn the craft and tell them they were breaking federal law. We were brought to see many dolphins and California seals as well as the whales. This was a very memorable experience and we would highly recommend the experience to anyone visiting the Dana Point area. Dana Point is about 12 miles south of Laguna Beach California. THAD & Bette
