The service was good. Cruise loaded and left on time and returned on time. Restroom and canteen facilities were provided. Unfortunately, as happens with wild life occasionally, the whales did not show up but a school of dolphins did perform quite a show. The weather was perfect and sea calm. The only thing left to ash for was the whales.

We were extremely happy with our whale watching cruise. We saw a whale, and watched it dive and come back up for a long time. We also saw lots of dolphins frolicking. The ride was nice and smooth and not too crowded. I would definitely recommend this cruise.

Nice boat ride, professional and knowledgeable staff. Saw dolphins before leaving the harbor, then unfortunately not much until the end of the trip. But, we came upon a large pod of rizzos...maybe 50+...it was really amazing. They swam with us for a while - got lots of great pics and video. Kids of all ages enjoyed it - from 5 to 15 - plus the adults. It was a great afternoon. I'd do it again - especially on 1/2 price Tuesdays.

Had a good time, boat was clean and appears well maintained, crew was friendly and knowledgable. Saw Sea Lions and at least two types of dolphins but no whales in mid-November. We will be back!

Glimpses of a few fin whales

This was the 11:00 am whale watch on the Dana Pride, instead of the catamaran. We had brief glimpses of several fin whales. The watch was hampered by rain and windy weather. Overall, it was not a good whale watch.

Our 2-hour trip took us down the coast off of San Clemente where we found a large black fin whale. We spent about 45 minutes watching him circle around the area eating krill. On our return trip we stopped and saw California sea lions resting on a buoy. Everyone on the catamaran had a good view. The crew gave a very informative narrative.

I was expecting great weather but the fog rolled in early in the watch. We saw and got good looks of 3 blue whales and one fin whale. The visibility was somewhat diminished by the fog. The captain did an excellent job of getting great looks.

Great Whale Watching Experience

This was by far the best trip of whale watching I had been on. We spotted three whales that gave us a great show and the boat Captain & Crew were outstanding in spooting and information.

Outstanding blue whale watch
Mon, Sep 19, 11   12:00 PM Toyookaed Male 70+ Local Unspecified
This trip encountered more blue whales, at least 12 different whales, close to shore than I have ever witnessed The captain did a particulary good job of getting close good looks of several selected whales. One whale showed us a fluke up dive every time it went on a deep dive. I saw more blues in Santa Barbara Channel about 4 years ago but that was much further out from shore and a much longer whale watch.

But....as the boat pulled out the announcement came...the water was too cold and the fishing would be lousy. Would have been nice to have know that before I booked the tickets or drove an hour and half to get there. But that said the crew was very helpful and quick and right on top of things.
