I have a two year old and a three year old both loved it. We were lucky enough to see hundreds or dolphins playing and jumping. We even ran into a gray whale. The kids cant wait to do it again.

This was a great way to entertain my family who came in from out of town! Everyone enjoyed the cruise and had a wonderful time. The crew was friendly and very knowledgeable with the local marine life. We will definitely return in the near future!

A wonderful whale watching outing
Sun, Jan 26, 14   2:00 PM PhilMoore Female 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
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.

We had a wonderful time. The staff was both knowledgeable and accommodating. The boat was well maintained and comfortable. We followed a grey whale and were able to get some amazing photos. We will definitely do this again.

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

Great trip, good employees, nice boat
Sat, Jan 25, 14   12:00 PM sdlauretz Female 70+ Local Family With Children
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.

A Pleasant Nature Jaunt
Wed, Jan 22, 14   12:00 PM Suegrim Female 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
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.

Very Good For Families
Mon, Jan 20, 14   10:00 AM mikejmc66 Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
Took my 12 and 11 year old sons. We had never fished before. Crew was very helpful. Front office staff was as well. We knew NOTHING so when we started out I slipped one of the crew $20 and he helped us run the line, tie the hooks use the reels etc etc. The extra tipo was appreciated but not requireed---he gave us the stra help before he knew I was tipping. Not a ton of fish caught----44 people caught maybe 30 fish of which maybe 5 were keepers but it was still fun. I would recommend highly.

Awesome/unforgettable experience

We saw so much on our whale catamaran. So worth the money! We saw sea lions, two different types of dolphins (each pod was 60 or more dolphins together) including babies, and pregnant female gray whale! Plus an amazing and gorgeous sunset. So much fun! My kids loved it too!

What an awesome trip!
Sun, Jan 19, 14   12:00 PM mkhensley Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
I would highly recommend booking this trip if you're interesting in seeing whales and dolphins really up-close within a couple of miles off our coast. We were very lucky to see some gray whales on their migration south to Mexico. We followed one for about 30 to 40 minutes, keeping a respectful distance, watching as she spouted. We saw several tail flips and she even breached four or five times and splashed back down. The whole deck erupted in applause! Don't forget your camera and binoculars! The captain and crew were very informative and shared lots of information on these magnificent animals. He was also communicating with other boats to find out where the best viewing areas were. As the trip was drawing to a close, the captain spotted a pod of dolphins cruising and soaring out of the water. There were hundreds! He cruised right into the middle of the pod, explaining that they knew exactly where we were and that they were not in any danger. You could almost reach out and touch them as they jumped and played just out of reach. We were on the catamaran which was very roomy with plenty of space on deck for everyone. Also, I must say the boat was spotless. There is lots of seating both on the front and rear deck and if you get a little chilly, the snack bar are is fully enclosed with clear plastic all around for a full view. As this was out first trip, we took many pictures and brought home lots of memories. We'll definitely be back! Thanks to the front office, captain and crew for a fantastic day!
