We didn't get to see any whales but... it was fun to ride out on a beautiful day. Nice to pick from all those times and we got tickets for a free ride again! So my next guest will have a great day too!

Our family consisted of young adults and seniors. We thoroughly enjoyed the outing and recommend it highly to anyone in the area. In addition to the whale watching we enjoyed the information given to us while we searched for whales and dolphins around us.

Did not see any whales this trip out but have seen lots of whales in the past. Good thing is they give you a whale check so you can come back again so it's guaranteed.

This was an excellent experience. The crew understand how to take care of customers with a smile and were very helpful. I would definitely go back and recommend others book a fishing day with this crew.

We saw lots of wildlife!

We went on a sunday at 10am. The ocean was calm and we saw dolphins, sea lions, and whales. The boat staff was very helpful and did all they could to get us close to the wildlife. I would recommend this trip!

Well worth the time and money invested

We happened to pick a beautiful SoCal Saturday afternoon. Even though the day's previous groups had apparently not seen any whales, we figured we'd enjoy the cruise. To our joy, we had a whale spotted within 10 minutes (a rather camera-shy whale, but it apparently had other things on its agenda). The guide did a great job of narrating what we might expect, as well as giving interesting information on the actual spotting.

The captain and guide also decided about midway that we should change our route to try for more sightings, and we were pleased to cruise into a group of dolphins, who added to the "success" of the cruise by swimming along with our boat for awhile.

All in all, I would very much recommend this activity, though I would have to say that, on a day such as that, the cruise would have been pleasurable even without having seen any whales.

Check in was fast. Parking was free and staff very friendly. The crew was very friendly and educated us about the whales and sea life. We will be back.

All 3 members of crew were very outgoing & very knowledgable of area & sea life. Had a great time even though we didn't see any whales on this trip. We were able to see plenty of dolphins & sea lions. Had a great time.

Worth it at half-price
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Apr 3, 12   12:00 PM misaac Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We enjoyed the boat ride, the waves and sunshine, and a couple of pods of dolphins. The time spent on lookout for a grey whale some fisherman had spotted in the area was exciting, though it was never spotted. We were happy with the parking, the staff, and the options for lunch afterwards. At half price, it was worth it. Back at the dock we were handed half-off coupons to try again, but decided it had been fun enough.

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Apr 3, 12   12:00 PM peterthijs Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Nice trip on a neat ship.

We have seen lots of dolphins, but no whales (but you can't force nature I guess), 50% coupons were provided because of the absence of the whales. (can't use the coupons while we are on a short holiday but the gesture is very nice)

If you want to here a downside: we were in a line for almost an hour. We were 35 mins ahead of schedule as advised, and embarkment was 15 mins behind schedule.

No whales on the first trip so we went out a second time on the company. Very informative and fun commentary.

We got more than we bargained for when we had a glimpse of the Finback whale...what a treat! The crew was knowledgeable and courteous to say the least and I would recommended this adventure for anyone young or old....

It was a very nice day off of Dana Point and the captain was very informative knowing that 2 whales were spotted heading our way. He made sure we were able to see them. The dolphins, 2 unfortunately, swam under the boat each time I tried to snap a shot of them. All in all a great day!

Highly recommend going out of Dana Point.

If we would have caught fish it would have been a perfect day! The skipper did his very best to get us "hooked up" and we got our "pool money" back. The fish just were not cooperating.
