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.

The guys on the boat were great, and very informative. We saw whales at a distance, and dolphins up close. It was a beautiful day, and was enjoyed by all!

Awesome Finback Whale Sightings!
Tue, Nov 1, 11   12:00 PM kellywoods Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
This trip, our third in the past 2 years, was by far, the best one yet! We viewed a group of finback whales for an hour straight. At one point, there were whales on either side of the boat. My kids were in awe of the size, the blowhole spouting and the proximity of the whales to the boat. Your crew is the best and we will be back! Thanks!

Smooth Sailing

The ride was great. The fog was not their fault. Would recomend the Catamaran to anyone. The crew was very helpfull. I learned a lot about local sea life. I live in San Clemente and now ask my self why it took so long to discover how smooth a ride the Catamaran provides. No whales on this trip but plenty of other life forms. On deck and in the ocean.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Oct 29, 11   4:00 PM scorpio61 Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
This whale watching was the best experience in my life.! It was my birthday and I had an AWESOME day. It was a beautiful warm day, the skies were clear. I had been wanting to do something like this all my life ! Even with the boat in the dock in the harbor I loved watching all the pelicans and all the other birds. Once we got out into the waters.....WOW Dolphins were everywhere ! They swam right along with the boat just like they were playing and racing the boat. Farther out in the water we began to see the water sprays of the whales. We even saw a few with their babies ! This is something that everyone should experience once in their lifetime. The skipper of the boat was so informative about what we were looking at. And towards the end of our journey he heard of a humpback whale and the search was on !!! I was hoping to see one pop up out of the water, but I didn't this time,So I know I will schedule another trip just on the hopes that I do !! This trip was breath taking and so very glad I was able to experience it ! Kudo's to all that made it happen !!

Can't believe how much wildlife we saw; the dolphins were amazing and to see 4 different kinds of whales SO close to our boat was awesome. It was a perfect was to spend a gorgeous afternoon.

Whale watch was wxcellent.
Sat, Oct 29, 11   12:00 PM gtheodoseau Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
We thoroughly enjoyed the whale watch. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather, smooth seas and multiple viewings of wild life (20+ whales, sea lions and a large pod of dolphins). Probably conditions are not always as favorable as we experienced. The boat was comfortable and the crew was very accommodating.

We saw whales, that's what we came for!

It was an awesome day out on the water, lots of dolphins at first then we spotted several fin whales. Then the big blue whale showed up and was playing all around the boat along with a seal lion. Great fun was had by all!

A good watch with unsual feeding behavior
Sat, Oct 22, 11   12:00 PM Toyookaed Male 70+ Local Other
This the first time I have observed surface feeding behavior with the blue whale. The whale displayed its ventral pleats usually with one pectoral fin up and half of its fluke out of water . The blue whale we observed did this repeatedly as the krill must have been near the surface which attracted the attention of the birds and the dolphins. This was an exceptional whale watch.

We had a really great experience! The weather was cool, the ocean was fairly smooth and we saw several dolphins along with several blue whales. It was the most amazing experience we've had on an afternoon outing. My family and I highly recommend this adventure!!

Smooth ride, plus lots of animals!
Thu, Oct 20, 11   12:00 PM cakaras Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
We were warned that at season end, there might not be whales; and, although we did not see blue whales, we found 2 small minkies which was fantastic. Also there were many herds of dolphins who swam up close/under our boat and demonstrated their perfect synchronized leaping, including mothers and babies. I had been out of Dana Point 2 other times on regular vessels (ie Dana Pride), but this catamaran trip is superior with less people and a smoother ride. You can talk with the crew, see more and it's worth the extra $10 per ticket.

Great time for 7-8 year old boys!

The boys had a lot of fun. Although there weren't a lot of folks catching big fish, every boy caught multiple smaller fish. They were all having an exciting time!
