No whales but a great time!

Lets start with the basics: Easy to book, great price, beautiful boat, super friendly staff, amenties on-board for everyone (beer, sodea, bloody mary's, food, etc) priced reasonably. On our 2hr cruise we saw pods and pods of dolphins but unfortunately no whales. But honestly, the experience of being on the water on a sunny day (temps in the low 60's) was peacefully amazing. I've been a Laguna Niguel resident for 20 yrs and this was the time we've done this - and it won't be the last. HIGHLY recommend!!!

Staff was nice, the boat was nice, the weather was nice, but there was only one whale. Received a coupon for half off of our next trip though.

Great being out on the water

It was really relaxing to be out on the water. We were able to see many dolphin and a whale breach 4 times. The crew worked hard to spot the whale and you just see a small part of it but it was exciting. Even if we had not see a whale it was wonderful to be out for a 2 hour boat ride and enjoy being out on the water and in the fresh air.

This was the 4th time we've been whale watching since moving to Dana Point (3 years ago). We have always seen whales among other things. Love the catamaran! It's the best!

Whales sighted!

A perfect day to be on the water. Large pods of Dolphins played around our boat showing off their beautiful swimming skills. Then, 2 whales stayed on the surface for us to admire for over 20 minutes. Observed the adorable sea lions sunning themselves on a buoy and then home. A great rip for my out of town guests. The only down side was the boat. I expected us to be on the Dana Pride, the larger, newer boat but when we arrived was told we had been switched to the older, smaller Clemente. I was concerned because one of my guests becomes sea sick and resented not being informed of the change in time to change our reservation. We went anyway and, fortunately, all had a great time.

Nice trip

The trip was nice, relaxing, beautiful scenery. We saw a few brief glimpses of whales but it wasn't due to lack of effort on the captain's part.
