Love being on a boat, it's a relaxing time! We saw a school of tens of dolphins and a Blue Wale, the Captain was nice enough to spend more time to wait for the whale to come up again! We were late 5 min but nobody complained, we saw the Blue Whale!

Experienced Crew Leads Succesful Watch

My mother, sister and I have been whale watching together before. Although I had seen whales on other trips, we had never seen them together. It was obvious to me that the crew knew what they were doing. They communicated with the passengers effectively and found a grey whale right away. We had a great time!

when i went whale watching, i saw some sea lions hanging out and basking in the sun. i took some pictures and we went deeper into the water. Later, we saw some common dolphins playing in the water. i tried to take some pictures, but they were too fast. i managed to take some pictures of them jumping. we didnt see a whale though, so we headed back to the docks. on our way back, we saw more dolphins. we got to the docks.

A Pleasant Nature Jaunt

An enjoyable afternoon perusing Dana Point's Harbor for wildlife is a must. We viewed and followed 2 gray whales, watching them fluke and dive. In addition the dolphins seemed to frolic as they jumped on the boat's wake following us as we heads to shore. Sea lions rested on buoys in the harbors and played in the marina. Gulls and pelicans abounded as we boated, making the mellow afternoon complete. After the cruise, we wander shop, ate some smoked fish, and had a delicious dinner. There's lots to see in Dana Point.

The whale & Dolphin watching was once upon a lifetime experience and the children really enjoyed the dolphins in the ocean. Never had such experience before.

Briefly saw a whale

Whale watching is kind of hit-or-miss. Obviously the tour guides can't control the whales. The staff was very friendly and the weather was great. I just wish we saw more than a fin for that price.

You gotta go at least once for the experience but I probably won't go again.

Amazing adventure!

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.
