Whale watching

Enjoyable trip to see blue whales, dolphins and sealions - very comfortable and spacious boat with good viewing opportunities. Got extremely close to one diving blue whale as it kindly swam across our bow as it went under.

We had both been out individually on this trip before and seen different wildlife . This time the Blue Whale came so close and we saw detail that we could only have dreamed of. The crew looked after us well and let us know at every stage , what they were doing and why and what expectations we should have.Thank you.

Incredible Life Experience!!!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone! We saw numerous whales, and the captain provided a lot of interesting information about them. He followed them, announced where to look for them, what to look for. We saw blue whales and they spouted water through their blow holes, and got to see their tales as they dove. The captain found out about a large group of dolphins so he took us to that area. There were dolphins everywhere!!! They were jumping, and swimming beside the boat. It was an incredible site to see! Great afternoon, with a clean, friendly staff.

GREAT GREAT - Best Whale Watching EVER

Blue Whale season is the best - the whales are easy to find & see. They put on a great show. Dana Point is gorgeous. The boat is comfortable and the hosts are great. The dolphins are always a fun bonus. Have enjoyed Gray Whale watching & Humpbacks in Hawaii, but Blue Whales are just WOW!

Fun and Informative Day

The captain was full of interesting information. It was all done in a fun way. He worked hard to have us see a whale, even allowed the tour to go overtime. Dolphins and sea lions were also a lot of fun. This was the second time we choose to go and take our visiting relatives.

Saw a majestic gray whale and numerous beautiful dolphins. It was peaceful to be on the water. The captain worked hard to find and follow the whale. Staff was friendly.

Beautiful day in July,1 whale and tons of dolpins!

We only got to see 1 whale and we weren't able to get too close to it because every time it popped up, our boat was too far away. So that was a little dissapointing, but at least we got to see one from far away. The coolest thing were the dolphins!! The first hour we didn't see any and then suddenly there were dozens of them surrounding our boat and so close you could almost reach and touch them! It was awesome! They were very playful and surrounded our boat for a good 20 min or so. Made the whole trip worthwhile!! Found coupons on the internet for $25/ea. Great deal!! If boat leaves at 10:00am, get there at 8:00 and eat at Proud Mary's overlooking the harbor. Nice place.

Great for locals and visitors!
Fri, Jul 12, 13   2:00 PM Needell Female 40-49 Combination Family With Children
Our family from NYC came for a visit and chose to go whale watching over a trip to Sea World. We were all thrilled! We had an incredible time! The captain and crew were teriffic and really engaging. Not only did we all learn a lot, we were lucky enough to observe Blue Whales (up-close) and Common Dolphins in their natural environment. Captivating. Seriously.

The crew was tracking several whales at the same time and extended our cruise by at least 15 minutes (at no charge) so we could all observe a bit longer. I would definitely do it again and highly recommend to locals and visitors.

We saw more than expected!
Fri, Jul 12, 13   2:00 PM jhartman Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We saw more than 20 dolphin right up to and under the boat. We had two whales that surfaces half a dozen times each and our captain was very aware of giving the whales space but positioning the boat for us to see the whales in detail. Great trip and will certainly go again if we have the chance.

mostly bass, but too small to keep. some more skilled folks caught bigger ones with lures. also caught some barracuda which are fun to catch.
