Great way to spend an afternoon

The boat ride in and of itself is a simple pleasure. The crew is very friendly and kind. I brought my Mom and her girlfriends from back east. We had purfect weather and we did see a whale. There were tons of dolphins that were just adorable. Second year in a row we had a great time. We were able to but the tickets in advance and saved a bundle. That was an added perk.

When you arrive in Dana Point to check in for the boat ride, there is kind of an ordeal to have to call and give them a 3 digit number. If we did not arrive early, that could of been very stressful.

All in all it was a great day and thank you.

Evenn though I have led many children on nature trips as a teacher inthe last 30 years, I learned a lot about the animals we saw and about how to communicate knowledge. The captain expressed his knowledge in a fun way. wanoderful.

We were very fortunate to have good weather and we were able to observe two grey whales. Crew was friendly and very informative and our guide made sure that we had the chance to watch these whales do what whales do :) Definitely plan to take this tour again to observe blue whales in the spring!

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.

This was an excellent way to spend a few hours. There is not a guarantee that you will actually see whales on the day you go. We did get to see 2 fin whales and literally 100's of dolphins on the day we went out. The crew tries to make sure you will see something on your excursion and our crew were friendly and very helpful. will probably do this again if we are in the area again.

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.
