You gotta do this!

I can't begin to express in words how much we enjoyed this excursion. The dolphins swam with the boat for quite a while, right directly next to us! We got such beautiful pictures. The water was so clear, we could watch them under water and they jumped and played as if putting on a show. It was Awesome! We saw mamas with new babies. When we got far enough offshore our Captain began searching for whales. It didn't take long. He spotted a Fin Whale and explained that they are the second largest Whale in the world. We think there were actually two but it was hard to tell cause they stay under water longer than other species of whale. All n all, it was the experience of a lifetime. If you get the opportunity to take this trip, by all means DO IT!! It was well worth it. I wish I could post my pictures for you to see. Guess you're just gonna have to go see for yourself :)

It was a great way to spend a day off with the kids. Even though the fin whale was elusive we got great shots of the common dolphins. We seem to forget all of the beautiful adventures that are so close to home. We have already made plans to take another tour!!

No whales, but literally thousands of dolphins that frolicked around the boat and wake.

I thought this event was very educational for my 6 year old niece. The Tour Guide provided much needed information on the ride and pointed out sea life and explained their contribution to Sea Life!

We had decided to see California from the water and had settled on a whale watch. What a great surprise to find 1/2 price Tuesday. The crew was friendly, the water was calm and the dolphins fun to watch. I am still determined to see a whale. Maybe next time?

Great Show Put on by Hundreds of Dolphins

Although there were no whales in sight, the show that the hundreds of dolphins provided was great. The weather couldn't have been better and the information provided by the crew was most interesting. They were very patient with all of our questions. I never would have known that so many dolphins would be in a pod. Also the interesting way the birds gave the signal to the dolphins as to where the fish were was something I wouldn't have imagined. Great trip and I will be back hopefully to see a blue whale!

Anniversary Trip

First time trip for my husband and I during an anniversary trip to San Clemente. We loved it and will do it again next time we are in the area! No whales unfortunately but there were TONS of dolphins and it was a beautiful ride. We took advantage of their half price tues/wed deal and at 14.50/person for 2 hours of entertainment it was an amazing deal. We chose the 10am departure so the weather was perfect and the parking at the marina was a breeze. I highly recommend it!

WE HAD A WONDERFUL AFTERNOON!!

We went out on the 12 noon boat. The earlier group was off-loaded in a precise and professional manner and we were boarded in the same way--quickly and safely. It only took 30 minutes out for us to sight dolphins. What a beautiful view as the group "greyhounded" as we approached. The announcer gave us excellent information about the mammals and what to expect. We did not see any whales, but the two hour trip was fun and sunny and entertaining. One suggestion I could have for the crew would be if the announcer would talk about the birds we saw---what kind and so forth. That could have been informative and would have taken up some of the quiet time between pods of dolphins. There was only one annoying thing that happened and it wasn't anything the crew could have done at that moment. One of the spectators threw orange peels in the water and I exclaimed "Don't do that!" The spectator thought he was funny and said that the peels were biodegradeable. Perhaps the Captain could announce early on--not to throw ANYTHING into the water. The litterbug was obviously not from around here and needed to be chided. I bought the DVD and it was fun to review what we had seen earlier. A great afternoon for my niece and me. When she comes back to visit, we'll go again and hope to see some whales!

We were not able to see whales, but we saw lots of dolphins. We also saw seals. My grandson talked and talked about it to his parents. Would highly recommend this to anyone!

Fun Experience

Wed, Apr 13, 11   12:00 PM karenlaw38 Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The staff was great, fun and entertaining. The boat was very nice, clean, had snacks and plenty of viewing areas. The only bummer was that we didn't see anything but a few dolphins. We apparantely tried to chase a hump-back whale which was seen on the tour before us which would have been very cool, but we didn't find it and then only saw a few dolphins at the end. Kind of a bummer for that, but over all the staff was great, and for 1/2 price Wednesday, it wasn't too much of a loss. Thanks.

Went in April 2011. The boat ride was smooth and refreshing and the crew / guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The second whale watch cruise I've ever been on and this time actually saw whales. Three gray whales, 30+ dolphins (2 species), sea lions, pelicans, and other sea birds. The captain knew approximately where they were, familiar with the way they migrate, so we didn't miss them. Beautiful to watch them playing together and with the dolphins. Great experience all around and for the price ($15 per person on 1/2 price Tues), you can't beat the value. Very satisfied with the experience.

Fun trip for all ages, friendly and helpful crew & captain, plenty of room on boat. Didn't see any whales but stayed with a large pod of dolphins all around us and up to the boat, great photos! This is a perfect 2 hour trip to take out of town visitors on, my guests enjoyed it a lot. I will probably do this again in the warmer weather. The half price days are a great value!
