Saw whales and dolphins
Mon, Dec 30, 13   12:00 PM Ikegonzalez Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
The boat was a little late leaving the dock but the delay was worth it. It was a beautiful day and the captain was very knowledgeable about whales and we saw two gray whales and many dolphins. I would recommend this trip to any one looking for an exciting day in southern California.

Captain was authoritative, informative

Great adventure... better than the amusement parks. Kids, adults all loved it.. food, drink and real wild life in the pacific coast's version of the Serengeti.. Worth every penny!! The Captain was filled with information, knew the spots to find the wild life, the boat had great viewing even with lots of folks on board... They proved our best tourist attraction is the wild blue at the edge of our coast not inland!!!! Dolphin's were as curious as us!! Whales! Grey whale stories! Had a beer and a sandwich while experiencing the great outdoors come to life in front of our eyes. Their boat was large enough to feel very safe yet small enough to feel we were on a special tour. Dana Harbor is awesome too.. good food, bars, and a little cool shopping and even a museum...

Appreciated the consideration given the whale so it wouldn't be hemmed in. Captain's narration was educational and informative.

We were able to see a gray whale for an extended period of time as he traveled south. Then we were able to experience a large pod of dolphins swimming close to the boat . It was such a special experience.

My family and I had a great time. The staff was helpful and the boat was nice. The Captan was very knowledgable and told us about whaling\fishing history and stories of the past during the trip. We saw a mega pod of dolphins (like 300+ dolphins), a whale, and some sea lions. Highly recommended.

Great Afternoon Cruise

It was a beautiful trip up the coast of Dana Point. We found ourselves surrounded by over 1,000 dolphins, who stayed with the boat for over an hour. The boat is a large, clean catamaran with a very professional crew. I highly recommend this company.

Experience of a lifetime
Tue, Oct 8, 13   10:00 AM gregschmitt Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
The captain and crew's experience took us right to where the whales were expected to be, and we were able to see a Blue whale surface and fluke twice. We also saw fin whales, dolphin pods and a thresher shark at the surface. A wonderful experience, with knowledgeable narration from the captain, who has 30+ years experience. He went the extra mile to find the whales, and kept us on the water for a little extra time in order to wait for the whale to surface again. Very pleased

A great day to see Whales.
Tue, Sep 24, 13   10:00 AM chuckhargis Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We went out at 10:00 am water was smooth and sun was out, the boat captain said it was a great day to see something. We first spotted some dolphins, than way out in the water we spotted whales. He drove out to them and figured there could of been 5 or 6. They kept coming up and down. Got some great tail pictures from a whale they call Hook. Over all it was a great experience.
