Took the wife and kids on a Saturday afternoon, day before Mother's Day, and we all had a wonderful time. Even the 14 year old enjoyed himself. My wife loves dolphins so her eyes ball up with tears upon the mention of them! We saw hundreds, if not thousands of dolphins. Different types too, Bottlenose, White Beaked and even some Risso's which we were told is pretty rare to see up close. And we got right up next to them. The Bottlenose were very fun and swam right up next to the boat, peering at us through the glass-like water. There were even a couple times we saw some leaping out of the water ahead of us! Great stuff! My only real complaint would be that the 2 hour trip goes by way too fast. We all wish the trip could have lasted longer. It was a beautiful sunny and clear day out on the ocean. Oh, and one other thing that sort of let us down was that we didn't see the huge Blue Whale that the catamaran crew had mentioned they saw on the morning trip that same day. Kind of got our hopes up because seeing a Blue Whale would be majestic. But maybe next time. And there will be a next time for us! I recommend this charter to any ocean, sealife, water-loving people out there.

Worth the trip

I've been on other whale watching cruises and saw only dolphins and sea lions. This cruise was great as two whales were sighted and surfaced several times. I would recommend anyone wishing to take pictures to have a high speed camera as you will have only seconds to point and shoot. The other option is to have a camcorder where you can catch the whale as it surfaces and clip photos from there. An overall GREAT trip!

Horrible Experience

Hardly any of the fish brought on board were big enough to keep. The fish that were kept were small and not what any of us would have expected from an ocean fishing experience. Crew was less than helpful. The only positive thing I can say about the whole trip was the great cheesburgers..... I would deffinetly not recommend this trip to anyone!!!!!!

Great ship, great crew and great viewing. A very pleasant two hours exploring the Dana point seas and wildlife. Tuesdays are two for one days but a great bargain on any day. A snack bar with drinks, hot and cold, alcoholic and non completed the adventure.

FUN...but disappointing

It was a great two hours for the price however we didn't get to see any whales. We did get to see dolphins. Since it's not guaranteed to see whales I don't think i'd pay again to chance not seeing whales again. Still had a good time on the boat.

Didn't see whales
Thu, Mar 6, 08   10:00 AM pennydouglas Female 60-69 Local Unspecified
I was excited about going out to view any type of whales and unfortunately not one whale to be seen. The captain said he was sorry and the whales must have been in Mexico and haven't made the trip back. What we did see was dolphines in herds swimming very fast and came very close to the boat. But that was it. I was disappointed because I've been wanting to do this a for a very long time. The captain said he would give us our tickets back if we didn't see any whales, but that didn't happen. Penny Douglas

Nice trip.

The only thing that I feel could improve is that when a whale is spotted off to the side of the boat, don't spin around and face the whale right away. The people on the side and on the back of the boat cant see the whales from the back when the boat is facing the whale.

We were fortunate to spot not one but two blue whales. We were able to see them many times and they are massive. This excusion is perfect for the afternoon. We had a great time and the crew was friendly and helpful
