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!!!

We saw a lot of dolphins and two whales. We loved every minute of our outing! We will do it again!

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.

But a relaxing day and passes for another trip. Might add some commentary about what we are passing on the shore.

I booked some tickets for my daughters and me because my friend recommended me this trip. I thought it was going to be okay this trip. But it was not okay, it was really fantastic!. One of the main reasons was because I took a SPF umbrella that let me stay in the front. In that place I remained the whole trip. It was an unforgettable experience! I highly recommend anyone to book a trip like this. The captain and his assistant were very kind and professional. Please don't forget to take your favorite snack to complement this amazing adventure.

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!

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.
