A three hour trip well worth the drive

My wife and I drove three hours from Bakersfield to our hotel in San Clemente in order to the Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure courtesy of the Dana Whark Sportfishing and Whale Watching. We got our money's worth. The boat crew was professional and courteous. We saw dolphins and sea lions, and at least six Blue Whales!!

This trip is a great family activity not only did we see tons of dolphins we even spotted a hammerhead shark!

The crew is super friendly and made the trip so enjoyable. Even though we didn't see a whale (off season) it was a great boat ride along the coast and totally kept my kids (12&5) entertained. We will definitely do this again next time we are in Dana Point.

Had a great family experience

We brought our kids out from Colorado for their first trip to the ocean. They had a great time on the boat and loved seeing the dolphins. We all had a wonderful time and will always have fond memories of their first experience on the ocean. We would definitely come back if we are ever in the area again.

Totally enjoyed our whale watch excursion at Dana Point. The reservation process on Zerve was quick and easy. The price was really reasonable. The staff on the boat was professional and very knowledgeable about whales. Our whole experience was good!

Exciting, yet pleasant and relaxing

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Appreciated the fast and efficient loading and unloading of participants. Liked the information given by the guide. Liked how hard he tried to find us a whale to see. Appreciated getting our tickets back since we didn't see a whale. I'm motivated to travel back from Memphis, TN to try again.
