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.

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.
