Great times had on a boat!!

I am i fairly weathered fishermen who goes out on 10 to 15 boats a year. Most of my outings are small 4 person boats but 3 to 5 times a year I get friends together for a party boat and we always head out of Dana Point. They crew are always accommodating and very knowledgeable. I would grab your gear and head out on their next available trip.

Children's First Boat Ride

My 5 year old twin boys had the day off from school, so I wanted to plan a wholesome activity for the day. The weather was beautiful, so I decided a whale watching tour would be a great experience.

We went on a Friday at noon, which proved to be a great time since the boat was not crowded. Although we didn't see any whales, we saw pleanty of seals, dolphins and fish. The Captain and staff were friendly and were patient with my kids.

I would recommend this excursion for anyone, even with young children. We had a great time and look forward to our next whale watching trip.

Wonderful Whale Watching Experience

It was wonderful to see the Blue Whales and pod of dolphins on this trip. The boat crew was friendly with a lot of information to share on the Blue Whales and Dolphins. I like the fact they explained where we were traveling to in the boat and why it was great location to view marine mammals. This was my first time doing a 5 hour whale trip. I loved it! Many thanks to the boat crew for amazing day! Thank you!

Nice surprise

Funny how I never thought of going whale watching since I'm local. We did not see any whales but the massive pod of dolphins made the trip very pleasant.

The sole crew member was very friendly.

I will definitely book again and hope to see whales next time.

I went out with my Parents that are both 82 years young! We totally enjoyed the boat ride! We didn't see any whales, but, we did encounter a huge pod of Common Dolphins! When we arrived at the pier afterwards, we were given a Whale Check ticket so that we can try to see whales again!

An incredible trip! For the amount of time we were out on the boat I felt like we did great on all the different things we saw. The boat ride was smooth and the captain was very knowledgeable about all the animals we were looking for. We will definitely be back!

They do their best to locate and bring you up close to the sea animals. The boat has lots of seating, and the people at Dana Wharf are friendly.

While we didn't see any whales, we did see a lot of dolphins and that was quite an experience in itself. The crew and the staff were extremely helpful and made the trip extremely pleasurable. Hopefully next time we'll be able to see some whales.

Fun, fabulous day!

We love the new cat, goes so fast and can get around the water with ease to find whales. We saw a beautiful blue and a hump back whale. I have been going out for 15 years and was my first hump back, so I was excited. I feel like a kid on these trips, always enjoy . Jason was always around to assist , give info, or just entertain. The captain gave great animal info. Was just more than whale watching, it was an experience, a fun day!
