Fun but missed the whales :-(

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
Fri, Nov 4, 11   11:00 AM Toyookaed Male Unspecified Local Unspecified
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.

Fun Whale Watching Trip

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.

Danapoint whale watch 10/2011

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.

I enjoyed the boat and the crew

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.

Good looks of blue whales in season

We got an outstanding view and photos as an adult blue whale swam toward us within 100 ft and did a a fluke up dive. This is the closest blue whale fluke I have observed. The captain did a particularly good job of locating whales for us. I can post pictures on your web site of you desire

Nice boat, but no whales for us!

There wasn't a whale to be found, saw some dolphins. They gave us a 1/2 off next ticket, which was nice of them.
