There wasn't a whale to be found, saw some dolphins. They gave us a 1/2 off next ticket, which was nice of them.

Fantastic day out

Whale watching with your company had been highly recommended to me by a friend who had been out previously. I would like to say that I had an amazing time with you and that the photo opportunties were wonderful - I will also recommend you to friends visiting the area. The number of people on the boat was just right, not too crowded, the commentary was interesting and informative.

(But I must just say that parking the car was a bit of a nightmare!)

I have been wanting to do this for many years and finally had the chance to go,,,,I loved the experience! The boat ride was great, even though I was a bit frightened of getting sea sick. We decided to get some Dramamine just incase and the ride was just fine, it worked ,,lol! Id would suggest this to all , its worth the $ to see at least once. We saw about three differnt whales and lots of dolphins. I would say its a MUST at least once!

We did not really expect to see any whales, but would have been happy to see a few dolphins and have a nice boat trip on the water. We saw so many big blues that we stopped counting! The guides were great, very knowledgable. Best $42.00 ever spent! Do it!

We had a blast. Lots of dolphins and sea lions, but no whales. We knew it wasn't whale watching season when we booked so were happy with what we did get to see. Captain was so apologetic that we didn't see a whale, he gave us tickets for a return cruise. We were completely satisfied and would recommend this cruise to anyone visiting the area.

Worth the money and time

I was nervous going on the cruise in July when the whales aren't migrating, but we still saw 4 different whales several times and that was plenty to make me happy. We saw dolphins and seals too. Well worth the money, and if you have the time I would recommend going on the longer tour. The two hour tour went by really fast, but was still worth the trip down to Dana Point.

What an amazing two hours. Nothing disappointing about it whatsoever. And Captain Larry is the best-knowledgeable, friendly, charismatic, and nice looking to boot!

Amazing experience!

I took my boyfriend out on this trip for his birthday. I've never been on a small boat before. I didn't know I would get so sea sick. However, even though I was dizzy for most of the trip, I don't blame it on the boat or the workers. Even though my head hurt for most of it, this trip was an awesome experience! Many of the reviews I read about this cruise said that they didn't see any whales. But we saw two huge blue whales! We saw a mom and a baby whale swimming next to each other! We even saw one of the whales FLUKE! We also saw a BUNCH of common dolphins! They played with our boat and swam with us. We even saw a tiny, baby dolphin! Seeing the magnificence of God's aquatic creations made the entire trip worth it, even though I got sick! There were only a handful of people on the boat, so it was very comfortable and friendly! I would recommend this to everyone. I would love to go on a trip like this again, but hopefully, I'll find a way to not get sick. :P
