Last Minute Decision Pays Off Big!

My husband and I made a last minute decision to go whale watching, since we've never gone. We were not disappointed. Saw many Blue Whales. One came up to about 10' from our boat! It was amazing! The boat was not crowded and we were able to get many videos and pictures of our trip.

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 whale watching experience was fun. The crew were very nice and made sure that everyone had a chance to see a whale or dolphin. They also point out things of interest.

don't forget the dramamine!

we followed 2 whales, which was really cool. and we saw a bunch of dolphins. i didn't like how the boat was right on top of the dolphins, literally. they claim it doesn't hurt them, but it didn't seem right to do it. other than that, the crew was professional. my only problem was i didn't take dramamine early enough and got seriously sea sick! anyone prone to motion sickness, be sure to take something well before hand. my husband had a great time while i was nauseous for 2 hours!!

We didn't see a blue whale, but did see a blow from a distance. Witnessed many bottlenose and short-beaked common dolphins with the help of an awesome cetacean naturalist, David Beeninga Great time!!

Grey whale season in a lull
Sat, Feb 23, 08   10:00 AM MWright Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
Captain did report that the grey whales were less frequent in that week in February, but only when we finally saw whales after looking for 1 and a half hours. In fact, they were closer in to shore and sailboats surrounded them, preventing us from getting closer. Their return to the north apparently starts in a weeks' time, so I just mistimed my visit.
