A sea worthy experience!
Mon, Aug 11  2:00 PM 4SusanP Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
Hubby and I decided to do this for our 40th anniversary after visiting nearby San Clemente. The check in staff were very helpful, even holding my flowers for us while we were on the catamaran. The crew was honest telling us that they would look for whales, but that nature prevailed and we may not see then, We knew that before hand. Getting to see the dolphins swim along side us and jumping around us was cool. The staff pointed out the 2 type of dolphins we saw. We stayed at the front of the catamaran the whole time enjoying the scene and ocean spray. We hope to go again in the future.

Great Experience at Dana Whart

Loved everything about this whale watching adventure. The captain and crew do a great job of both educating and entertaining as you sail about the area. We were fortunate enough to see a Blue Whale- the rarest to see and biggest on earth! The ship was clean, lots of room to view and great snack/drink service on board. Highly recommend this adventure!

Best day of my Vacation

My daughter and I took this sea jaunt to see dolphins. The ride was very relaxing, even without the addition of the dolphins and sea-lions , this was a very enjoyable tour for me. I would recommend it to any of my friends visiting San Clemente/ San Diego area.

Great Experience
Wed, Aug 6  2:00 PM johnaseymour Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My wife and I took this trip and really enjoyed it. It was not the time of year for whales but the crew was determined to find a pod of dolphins and did. We had a wonderful 30 minutes or so making passes through the fairly large group of dolphins. The crew was friendly, explained things to us and kept us informed as we went out looking. I'd go again juts for the wonderful afternoon on the water.

Nice boat and crew

Did not see any whales but plenty of dolphins, if staying at the Dana Point Marriot, it's a five minute walk to the Dana Point Wharf, highly recommend that you go there, plenty of restaurants and must eat at RJ Cafe

This was our third time whale watching. We did not see any whales and not as many dolphin as usual BUT they gave us our ticket back to come another time which I thought was great. Staff was wonderful and the boat ride was worth it too.

poor attempt at finding wahles
Sat, Aug 2  12:00 PM DanielGladys Male 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
They didn't try to find whales outside of the standard, routine route; deck hand acted as if he was doing us a favor for selling us beverages. Been on other whale watching tours that went out of the way to find whale for us to see; we were lucky if we saw 20 dolphins on this tour and the Captain kept circling the same dolphin pod. Unfortunately, everyone wanted to see whales - not dolphins. It was if the Captain expected the whales to come to us. This was not a good outing. definitely will not recommend it to anyone.

Blue Whales!
Mon, Jul 28  5:00 PM Fritzheimer Female 50-59 Combination Family With Children
The boat was clean, the trip to the whales enjoyable... the whales, stunning. All in all, it was a great trip, if only I could have reached out and touched the whales that we saw.

Excellent Family Outing

My son quickly picked it up, even for a first timer, he caught a barracuda and bass. He is asking to go out again. Staff was patient and supportive - overall great day out at sea.

Twilight fishing was a treat!
Sat, Jul 26  5:30 PM Ryanthomas Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Twilight fishing was a enjoyable experience for my family. Weather was perfect, sunset was great, and watching the dolphins and coastline was impressive. Fishing was not that hot but we had a great time anyway!

This was the best birthday present ever!

I have wanted to go whale watching forever and decided I was going to do it for my birthday as a gift to me! Much more than I could have ever expected! We saw more dolphins than I ever had before and we got to see four types of whales and it was a beautiful day! Best time ever and our crew was the best!
