This is a whale of a show!

I went on this whale watch last September. It was so fantastic (saw Blue Whales, Fin Whales and dolphins) that I took relatives on it this May. Once again, we saw lots of dolphins, who surfed with the boat, and the first sighting for the season of a Blue Whale and the 35-foot long baby. Quite exciting. I would recommend this to anyone, who enjoys wildlife, and doesn't get seasick. It can be quite choppy. Take layers of clothes, because it can be 15 degrees colder on the water. I think the 2-4 pm time is the best. The pilot finds the whales on the earlier whale trip. No meal is interrupted on the 2-4 pm slot. It can be colder and sun is lower on the 4-6 slot.

Not only was the weather spectacular, we were so impresed with our captain and crew. Their friendly attitude and knowedge of the whale migrations and other water animals made the trip so interesting. I have checkd off an item on my bucket list! Thank you!

My mistake. I thought I had reserved the Dana Point location at the Institute at the other end of the pier. Fortunately we arrived early enough to still participate as scheduled. No problem with electronic check-in. The crew were very pleasant & professional. Would recommend to all.

Plenty of dolphins.... but no whales! However, we were offered a ticket for another try, but unfortunately, couldn't make that date. We thought that was very fair!

We had a fantastic trip off Dana Point. My husband and I were vacationing in So. California. A happy retreat from N.Y. This was a real highlight for us. We had the opportunity to see courting among 3 gray whales, literally right next to The Dana Pride. Extraordinary. Worth every penny!
