Dana Point Whale Watching Catamaran

We tried to book the catamaran online but none were scheduled.

However when we arrive for the reservation, our tour was on the catamaran.

We've been on several of the other DP boats but this was different and we enjoyed the ride.

Did not see as many whales as in the past so the ride made up for it.

Would definely return with friends and more family.

My wife and I took this trip and really enjoyed it. It was not the time of year for whales but the crew was determined to find a pod of dolphins and did. We had a wonderful 30 minutes or so making passes through the fairly large group of dolphins.

The crew was friendly, explained things to us and kept us informed as we went out looking. I'd go again juts for the wonderful afternoon on the water.

Ticket buying experience was good, but was disappointed since we could not see whale. Saw few dolphins and sea lions. It was just a drive around the sea...

We had a wonderful experience on this trip. We were able to watch whales, sea lions and lots of dolphins. The captain was very knowledgeable and helpful with the descriptions and tips on how and when to take the best pictures and how to look for whales. I would love to take the trip again. Here is a video we took from the trip:

The boat left right on time, was very clean and the crew very friendly and informative. Since we didn't see any whales, we got a whale watch ticket for another trip for free anytime. Also, the food from the grille is fantastic - all freshly made!! There is plenty of seating and/or places to stand along the railing, so it didn't feel too crowded.
