Crew did excellent job considering the season.

Although it was the wrong time of year and the weather was bad the crew did their best to find us a few dolphins and keep us interested.

I recommend scheduling your trip for May and after. Not November.

We hit the perfect day...weather was 75 on the water in January...boat not too crowed...saw Whales, 1000 dolphins and birds chasing the boat...We live in Dana Point and it was still a very special, unique experience...give it a try...

So much fun! Kids enjoyed it as much as adults. The naturalist was super-helpful and engaging.

Great trip with knowledgable crew

Saw a blue whale from a distance and a huge group (not sure what technical term is) of dolphins. Crew seemed to know exactly where to head to see this wildlife.

You will see whales, and MORE!

Excellent value. The skipper was a whale "expert" and shared fascinating info through out the trip while safely allowing us to view the beautiful animals as close as possible. As a bonus, we were taken into a "mega pod" of dolphins, which was incredible! The tour was the perfect length, and you can't beat the So. Cal weather. Highly recommended.

Fog, one whale tail, but still fun!

We made a date with the whale watching tour for a wedding party. It ended up getting foggy just as we went out on the ocean....we did see one whale before the fog got too think.

They did give us Whale Vouchers to come back again due to poor whether. We will definitely be back! Still had a lot of fun, good company, including the crew....made the trip memorable.

Thanks!
