Gray whales & a megapod of dolphins

I have never seen so many dolphins together at one time; hundreds leaping and cavorting.

The whales (3) showed their tails. Sun was shining, it was a great 2 hours.

A wonderful whale watching outing

Our captain gave us so much interesting information about the whales that added to our enjoyment of the

trip. After we watched the whales for awhile he was going to take us somewhere else to look for dolphins,

BUT some of the whales were breaching so he quick turned back so we could watch them.

And breach they did ! So glad he turned back.

All in all, a great trip.

If you don't go out expecting to see much then you'll be happy if you do. We only saw 1 whale which we followed for about 45 minutes and saw it's tail a few times. The weather was

We had a great time. The crew was very helpful and the narration was knowledgeable and interesting. I loved the tables on the upper deck. The captain did a great job of following some whales. We had a calf that followed our boat for about 1/2 hour and did all sorts of antics. We saw dolphins and sea lions and I would heartily recommend your company. We'll probably use your company to go to Catalina next month. I am disabled with a bad right leg. Your crew made sure I got on and off the boat safely and easily. All in all it was a delightful experience.

The trip was informative, successful in that we saw whales up close and the boat was comfortable and stable. We loved the whole experience.

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.

Meet a whale

It was a great experience to see the whale.

It was little far from the boat and I could not see them in big. But there is a rule to be in distance, so it is understandable. It is a disappointment that I did not see even one dolphin this time.

I should come back again.

Saw one gray whale at a distance but the best part was when we in the middle of a large pod ( estimated at 500) dolphins. They put on a show! Mamas with their babies jumping and some dancing backwards on their tails. The captain was informative and friendly. Great fun!

Big, clean boat and professional company. Going during the week provides a less crowded experience. Easy (free) parking. We left on time and even though we didn't see any whales : ( we had a good time with the dolphins. You have to go to find out how...

Beautiful ride down the shore

I would recommend this activity as you get a beautiful ride down the shore and get to see lots of dolphins and sea otters! I was a little disappointed that we didn't get to see a whale but understand you have no control over that however definitely worth the trip.
