I didn't expect much. I don't think July is the best time of year for seeing whales. I was pleased with the crews efforts to find whales. The seemed very knowledgeable. The highlight was riding along side a large pod of dolphins. Definitely worth the $29 for a two hour trip.

We'd recommend this outing to anyone coming to Laguna or Dana Point. The best excursion we did here!! We will treasure this memory for the rest of our lives. It was a magical experience being surrounded by dolphins and whales.

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.

Amazing trip, saw a blue whale, it was a leviathan, it floated and we observed it for 10 minutes or so, saw greys a mother and her calf, along with others, then a super pod of dolphins Along with sea lions, a knowledgable crew. it was a thrilling ride to see nature at its best. I had never seen so much. It was a once in a lifetime experience. The words breathtaking do little justice to what we saw.

The staff was very friendly and informative. Unfortunately we did not see any whales nor dolphins. Disappointed about that. However we were given a "whale check" voucher for a free return trip.

NO WHALES

Unfortunately we hardly saw any whales on our two hour sunset tour- even though the festival of whales was going on and there were supposed to be many whales migrating in the area. The couple glimpses we did get were very far away and just a split second shot of a whales back. I understand that when trying to view wild animals, it's hard to guarantee anything- but I couldn't help but be disappointed, especially since we purposefully came during the whale festival and I thought there was a high probability that we would get some nice views of the whales :(

I think the Captain was great, very knowledgeable and offered great insights. I was disappointed though that we didn't see as much as I would have liked (3 grey whale, the way it was advertised is that there are huge sightings of marine life every day). I understand that this is out of your control. I was very grateful that there were fewer people on the tour though and it wasn't congested because it makes it so difficult to really see with congestion onboard. I was pleased to get a 50% discount and will come again.
