Had a wonerful trip. Thank you.

My guests from Scotland enjoyed the trip very much. I wished that we could have seen the blue whales a bit closer to the boat. We had only one "longer" viewing which showed them the size of the whales. Luckily we had several dolphin close-up experiences. Thank you for having half-price day which made the trip possible.

Great crew and a good day on the water

We have gone out about five times before, and this was the best trip we had. Three whale and 1,000+ dolphins plus a Sunfish to boot!

Excellent! Highly Recommended.

Myself, my husband, and our two young children really enjoyed this. The crew was enthusiastic, friendly, and knowledgeable and the boat was clean with plenty of seating. Shaded seating was also available which was a great choice for our infant. We saw several whales, tons of dolphins, and sea lions. No part of the trip felt slow and we would gladly book another session! The price cannot be beat!

Crew members were awesome, fishing sporadic
Mon, Jul 7  6:30 AM reegecat7 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
My trip took a down turn when the fishing slowed way down and the heat went up. My 9 year old daughter became sea sick at this point and because we were on a small boat she had no where to be in the shade. She did catch her first bass and barracuda and the crew was helpful.

Fun Experience
Sun, Jul 6  12:00 PM philmal Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The crew was great, it was a fun experience, there were a few intoxicated people that would use bad language and were a bit disrespectful - not the greatest people to have around my kids.

the boat was nice and the staff cheerful. However, the rear speakers were not working and we could not understand a word that was being said. We saw beautiful dolphins and two seals but no whales.

Didn't take too many fish home, but we had fun
Fri, Jul 4  5:30 PM Daogier Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
We haven't ever taken as many fish home lately as we did off San Diego about 15 years ago, less fish in OC or overfishing? I don't know, but still nothing beats an afternoon on the ocean, followed by fireworks! And the grill on the boat was surprisingly good. If you want a day on the water, I recommend!!

Make sure you have the kids take bromine 2 hours in advance so no one is sea sick.

Somewhat Disappointing
Thu, Jul 3  2:00 PM Steve7 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We didn't see any whales, which isn't the sole reason for the disappointment (I understand that there has to be luck involved). What I was really disappointed about was the the crew provided no commentary throughout the two hour cruise, except for some comments regarding the sighting of several dolphins towards the end of the excursion. It would have been nice if the crew provided some information on whales in general and perhaps some stories on prior sightings, etc. They all looked bored with their jobs.

Very enjoyable and nice trip
Tue, Jul 1  5:00 PM Bernd_Martin Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We (me + wife and kid, 3yrs) joined the whale watching tour and enjoyed it really a lot. Staring with a smooth and easy "check in" as well as boarding and ending up with 100s of dolphins. Even our small one enjoyed it a lot - the only "drawback" was the fact that there was no whale .. but this is nature.

No whales, but unreal pod of dolphins
Tue, Jul 1  5:00 PM clerksfan37 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Was a nice cruise out of Dana Point on a fairly overcast afternoon. We did not see any hint of a whale, but the dolphin pod we happened upon was incredible. One estimate was about 1600 dolphins... every direction you looked, they were leaping and racing as far as you could see. Would definitely try it again maybe not in the June gloom season. Even still...Dana Point is gorgeous.
