Cool trip

I thought I would be disappointed since it wasn't blue whale season (it was gray season) and it was my brother in law's first time in California but luckily we had a very rare chance to see a hump back whale. The tour guide said in the 25+ years he has been doing this, it was only his 6th time seeing a hump back whale. That was definitely cool.

Good tour, missing a close encounter with whales.

The tour did took us in open sea's where whales were, but the whales were not co-operating and just saw tail 2-3 times. Saw Dolphins and sea lions very closely, but would have loved to see the whales in 40-50 yard distance. The tour manager tried to get us close but we were always 200-300 yards away.. so what we saw was a little part of the whales. He could have tried to take us little far from the harbor where we may have found some whales interested in playing and showing. It is a good season for whales and their are a lot in that area. Would have certainly liked going farther to see the whales. He could have taken us farther in with larger concentration of whales, rather than chasing a whale and a baby whale close to harbor.

Dana Point is a beautiful area, the wharf is interesting and fun, and the Wind and Sea restaurant on the wharf had yummy soup and fresh calamari to warm us up after the trip. We had a great time and will certainly do it again, and recommend it to friends and out-of-town visitors.

The crew was so knowledgable and fun. The was beautiful - couldn't have asked for a better experience. Saw some gray whales, the crew explained so much - not too crowded - absolutely I would recommend to family and friends.

the weather was great and the boat ride was as well. We saw a mother and little one (whale) and a large pod of dalphins. It was done well with a great deal of info on the animals.

Whale Watching and Dolphins

This crew was great. They knew exactly where the whales were. They kept a respectful distance and gave us a lot of information about the whales and dolphins.

Will return when the blue whales are around.

It was fantastic!! We saw a blue whale, a shark, and sea lions. The captain was informative and very patient. We got to follow the whale for some time while we watched it swim on it's long journey. It was so peaceful and the boat was big enough so you didn't get sea sick easily. I loved it!!
