We saw whales, that's what we came for!
Fri, Oct 28, 11   2:00 PM mdhammer Female 40-49 Local Group of Friends
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!

excellent day with my son

The deck hands were phenominal, they were there to bait every hook if we wanted and to remove the fish from the lines once we caught them.

4 hour cruise.

Everything was very satisfactory and I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in sport fishing to take out one of your boats. I think I would prefer daytime fishing however and will next book one earlier in the day,

Plenty of Dolphins, no whales.
Sat, Oct 15, 11   12:00 PM dpingree Male 40-49 Local Family Without Children
Boat was great, not crouded. Captains seemed bored and beer was expensive. Nice weather...ALLOT of Dolphins...but no whales. Oh, and a bouie covered in lounging sealions on the way in all for the low low price of 220$. Nice trip out but I'll make sure to call in for whale sightings before reserving again...or at least bring a fishing pole and my own beer with me next time.

Danapoint whale watch 10/2011
Mon, Oct 10, 11   12:00 PM Toyookaed Male 70+ Local Unspecified
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.

We lucked out and saw many blue whales, fin whales and three types of dolphin. We had perfect weather. The captain was informative and enthusiastic. He stayed out past our 2 hour time because we were having such a special experience. We were very pleased!

had family in town from the mid-west. it was a really great time and we saw a large number of whales. the captain was excellent at getting to the best viewing spots. the only bummer of the day was the parking ticket i received after parking where your employee told me to park and did not give me a permit. they say they will reimburse me for it and i believe them...

Absolutely AWESOME! Don't change a thing!!! Not only did we see a ton of whales, we saw and road along a huge school of dolphins, which was soo much fun. We highly recommend this trip and will definitely be back to take it again.

Blue Whales, Fin Whales, and Dolphins... oh my!
Fri, Oct 7, 11   2:00 PM Di1208 Female Unspecified Local Couple on a Date
It was a typical gorgeous day on the water in Orange County.. having rained just 2 days prior, the weather was picture perfect. We boarded the very lovely (and spotless) catamaran and were greeted with smiles and a helping hand. It was a truly amazing day! We saw at least a dozen blue whales, a great handful of fin whales and too many dolphins to even count. I'm not exaggerating whatsoever! The captain exclaimed that it was one of the best days in a long time. We felt so blessed to be on board with a great crew and friendly passengers. The captain constantly kept us updated about sightings and gave great historical information about the wildlife we were encountering. I had my doubts about going on a local, "touristy" activity, but I'm so happy that I chose to celebrate our anniversary on this vessel. It was a fantastic voyage. Kudos for a marvelous day of sight seeing! I can't wait to see our photos!
