It was a great day. The crew was friendly and enthusiastic. The boat was clean. We saw a whale and followed it for about 35 minutes. Then took off and found a school of dolphins about 500-600 strong. The crew was very professional. My sister was in from Pennsylvania and enjoyed the cruise thoroughly.

Fantastic Experience

We saw 2 magnificent blue whales and a huge sunfish that was sunning himself and did not move away. The crew gave us a lot of information about the animals we were looking at. Even though the water had high waves getting out into the ocean, the captain made the ride very smooth until we were in calmer waters. Also, the hot dogs were delicious.

SAW 6 GRAY WHALES AND ONE OF THE COOLEST DISPLAYS OF DOLPHINS PLAYING AND RIDING IN OUR WAKE. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING AND WOULD DEFINATELY DO IT AGAIN. NOT SURE HOW MANY DOLPHINS BUT I WOULD SAY 100+

Smooth ride, great crew

Being from San Diego, we're used to the idea that Southern Cal whale watching was limited to grey whale migration, so were pleasantly surprised to learn of the blue whales off Dana Point in the summer. The price is reasonable for a two hour ride, the crew knowledgable and congenial, and the catamaran fast and smooth. Though whales had been spotted the day before, we didn't encounter any this trip, but did see three species of dolphin and had a great time. Will definitely do this again.

Dolphins

There were lots of dolphins but no whales to be seen; we spent about an hour with the dolphins which lost the allure after about 15 minutes.

Rough weather, but Cpt Jack found whales!
Sat, Mar 1  8:00 AM rodsteel Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
It was raining and rough weather to start. We weren't sure they would go out in the rain, but they had a full ship, so they went! It was fun, and wet (mostly due to rain). Water was choppy, but cant blame that on the sea men. They did a great job teaching about whales and their migration routes. We did see a few groups of greys, and our Capt got us to a group that were doing fluke (tail) breaches! That was awesome to see. My girls (13 & 16) LOVED it and would love to go again... when it's warmer and dry! No dolphins on our trip. :(

Needed something to break up the typical mid-week day-dates I've allowed us to fall into. When I saw the 1/2 price whale watching (pronounced: dolphin watching) tour, I knew it was worth a shot. Low and behold, we lucked out and had one of the best days of the year for an ocean boat trip. No whales, but great people on board, and a very friendly crew that truely seems to enjoy thier work! thanks a million!

Don't forget to take binoculars as it is hard to get close to the whales they keep swimming underwater while feeding so you don't know where they will pop up next. Also you have to be quick with your camera and have a good zoom feature or else pictures won't turn out very good. Don't go below unless you only want to see other peoples rear ends.

This was something we've never done before so it was really exciting. Being up close to the dolphins was amazing and something that my family and i will never forget. thanks to the captain and crew for a smooth boat ride and all the information about the area and animals. will definitely be back again!!
