Fun, but need better sound system!

We really enjoyed our experience, and saw a few whales plus a hilarious pod of dolphins. The only problem was that the great information being shared by the encounter person was so muffled that we could only catch about 1/3 of what he was saying.

Little hard to find a good observation spot due to crowds. It's a fair deal for another free adventure as no whale was observed. Will come with children again.

Boat trip on Dana Point

This was quite an adventure. There was so much to see, where to begin? Best of all we spotted a humpback whale which was remarkable since it was in November! Another wonderful part of the tour was the large pod of dolphins that were swimming along side the boat. Then another type of dolphin species also joined in the act, swimming out a little farther. The captain of the boat was very informative on the different types of marine life we encountered. We also went by a large buoy that had 6 seals perched on top, & were able to get very close for perfect photo opportunities. I would love to do this again if in the area again.

Our trip was wonderful - easy to book and we left on time. The boat had more than enough room on it for everyone to sit comfortably and see everything that was to be seen. My husband and I took our daughter and her fiancee' and we all had a wonderful time. The captain knew exactly where to go to find marine life. We saw a humpback whale and several hundred common dolphin. The trip would have been relaxing and worthwhile on its own, nut seeing such amazing creatures up close was incredible. Our daughter is a professional photographer and she captured some fabulous shots that will help us to always remember this adventure. WE would most certainly do this again.

I highly recommend taking this cruise, will take the cruise again if we ever get the chance.

Anniversary vacation to SO Cal

We had a great time on our whale watching cruise. We were on an anniversary holiday and wanted to keep things low-key. It was super easy to get to the venue and we saw lots of marine life. Literally hundreds of dolphins came over to 'play' with us. Seals joined in... and a whale made a special appearance.

Highly recommend. Even if the whales stay hidden, just seeing the dolphins made it well worth it.

Great day with many Dolphins

We had a wonderful time on the very nice catamaran. We saw a large pod of common dolphins that "stampeded" many times for us- it gave me goosebumps it was so moving! Then we saw a small pod of bottlenose dolphins that rode in the front of the boat just like you've seen on the movies. The staff was helpful and friendly. Would definately go again and hopefully see whales next time!

While we were not lucky enough to see a whale, we did see hundreds, if not thousands of dolphin. They swam along with the boat and jumped out of the water. The captain and crew were knowledgeable and friendly. The views if the coast line were worth the cost of the cruise alone. I would definitely recommend this tour for everyone.

The captain, crew, check-in, and boat were all top notch. The captain did a great job in finding the whales and explaining what was going on. We are going back for more.
