Overall Experience...
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Nov 6, 10   3:30 PM ChristaR Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
Overall I enjoyed my cruise experience. I LOVED seeing all the dolphins but was a little disappointed I didn't see any whales (I guess that was due to the transition between seasons). And although I liked all the facts and info about the water and sealife, I didn't enjoy how loud the captain was over the loud speaker. It was so loud, it was ear piercing and eventually gave me a headache. I prob would have said something, but I was feeling too sick to walk around.

Lots of dolphins...warm weather...informative. I'm a fisherman and have witnessed dolphin in the wild many times. But in this situation, spending time in the middle of the pod and watching them close up was fantastic and very relaxing.

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises

We went out on the half priced Tuesday catamaran trip. Weather and conditions were perfect. The captain and crew seemed very knowledgable about where to find marine life and provided a very informative narration on the way out. Their concern for the ocean was evident.

We did not see any whales as we were really not at the right time of year for it but we did see a lot of dolphins and seals. The staff approaches the animals with respect and at the same time are able to optimize your experience by getting the dolphins to surf in the boats wake and manuever the boat to ensure everyone on board gets up close views. They explain the animals behavior in detail. We were also lucky to get an unexpected viewing of seals on some of the local rocks.

I would really recommend this trip to anyone considering a whale or dolphin cruise. The price is great for the duration of the trip (2 hours). The boat is clean and well maintained.

I plan on going out again when the grey whales are here and would also take any out of town visitors out for an enjoyable day on the ocean. There are nice little restaurants right by the docks too ...so if your cruise is one that does not include a meal it is nice to be able to have lunch or dinner right there on the water before or after the cruise. Little shops in the area as well ..nice for sourvniers for out of town guests. Dana Point is a pretty area so you can easily make a day of it. You will definitely get some great photographs !

Needed something to break up the typical mid-week day-dates I've allowed us to fall into.

When I saw the 1/2 price whale watching (pronounced: dolphin watching) tour, I knew it was worth a shot. Low and behold, we lucked out and had one of the best days of the year for an ocean boat trip. No whales, but great people on board, and a very friendly crew that truely seems to enjoy thier work!

thanks a million!

pleasant being out

The staff were good and patient-I was irritated with some kids and a parent next too me who left there rods unatttended. The staff did all they could but it sort of soured me on the experience-that and the teenages who though nothing of casting their bait near a bird and hooking it.

I still recommend the trip just because of the beauty of the harbor.

Absolutely Amazing
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

I was hoping to see a few dolphins and enjoy a nice boat ride so I was absolutely amazed to see thousands of dolphins swimming and jumping through the ocean. Watching the sun set on the ocean was an extra bonus - just beautiful. This was one of the best experiences of my life. Thank You!

Worst Captain Ever
Thu, Oct 28, 10   10:00 AM Dcboss Male 50-59 Local Other
The Captain didn't have a clue where he was going. He didn't bother to ask where the boat had been doing great all week. When he did stop, he gave little information about the location. As soon as the anchor hit bottom, he would be at the rail fishing. That was bad enough, but he would squeeze into a good spot and fly line across others. He also would be smoking while fishing. I had to move on two occasions because of the smoke. My daughter was hung up on a rock with the captain right next to her, but he was two busy fishing to help. When she asked for help, he called a deck hand over to assist her. He acted as if this was his private boat and we were just in his way. Stay away from captain Jack.

It was a perfect day and the crew was enthusiastic. Only suggestion is to have real hot chocolate instead of the packets. Other than that, I thought it was a beautiful and fun trip. My neices enjoyed it very much.
