Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Such a great trip. Love boat rides anyway. Saw dolfins, seals and 3 blue whales. They are unforgettable and magnificent! We got to be part of the 18% who have ever seen whales in their natural habitat! Would go again in a heartbeat! My daughters are still talking about it!

FUN ACTIVITY FOR THE FAMILY
Sat, Jul 28, 12   12:00 PM mikereed9703 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Even though we know late July is not an ideal whale watching time of the year, but we thought a nice day out on the water would be nice. Our captain went out of his way looking for whales and with his electronic fish finder or sonar he eventually found one. He also found a very entertaining pod of dolphins and they made the trip worthwhile so the whale was actually a bonus. We will do this again at a more appropriate time of year for whale migration.

Amazing!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 27, 12   5:00 PM krisco610 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The trip was amazing. My 2 adult daughters and I went as a girls weekend trip. Crew was very nice and very helpful explaining alot about the blue whales and what to watch for. We saw 6 blue whales - spouts as they came up to breathe, backs and small dorsal fin as they eased their way back under and of course the Tail!! The crew would position the boat so all could see from one side and when we saw a spout - quickly headed the boat to a closer position. We got some awesome pictures! The weather was perfect and the trip was excellent! We would recommend this trip and would definitely come again!!

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

The captain of the boat did a wonderful job getting us close to two whales and the naturalist on-board was an added bonus that made the trip fun and educational at the same time. Loved the interaction with the dolphins, too! Will definitely do this again. Thanks to the crew for making our adventure spectacular!

The tour was well organized. The boat was not overly crowded and the tour announcer gave us lots of information. We saw plenty of blue whale, dolphins and sea lions. Very enjoyable trip.

1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Jul 24, 12   4:00 PM BobDietz Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
I'd gone Whale-watching about a month ago, out of Newport. It was awful. Wet, smelly boat. No whales sighted... not one! A few dolphins, some sea lions... no biggie. So when my friends suggested we try it again, I was less than enthusiastic. But they said they'd heard that Dana Point was having sightings, so I agreed. Lemme tell ya folks, I was NOT disappointed!!!!! We saw bunches of whales... Blue whales!!! A truly fascinating experience, loved every minute of it!!! I would HIGHLY recommend the Dana Point whale-watching to ANYONE!!! The Catamaran was especially nice, not too crowded... allowed everyone a great view of these magnificent creatures!!! The crew was nice, and very informative... unlike the experience at Newport. I can't wait to go again, and my friends all feel the same!!! FIVE stars... without hesitation!!!

When on the whale watching tour from Dana Point CA saw two blue whales and had a great time. The captain was very knowledgeable and informative. Would go again if I had the chance. Kids loved it also.

We had fun. Wish there were more fish. It was good just to get out on the boat and fish.

Captain and crew were very accomodating.

1/2 Day on Sum Fun
Sat, Jul 21, 12   12:00 PM sbay0307 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
This was my second trip on Sum Fun, and each time with limited results - in fact, we only caught one fish between 3 of us. Both times the boat did not have anchovies for bait. Other boats that I've taken out had anchovies, and we were successful. The boat was overcrowded - 56 anglers. Not only was the boat overcrowded for fishing, there was a sign on the boat that read "27 adult life vests". Interesting. I will never take Sum Fun out again.

Whale of a time!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 20, 12   5:00 PM donsong Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
Really enjoyed the trip. Saw a large school of dolphin before we saw the blue whales. The crew did a great job of "chasing" the whale spouts, so we could get some great pictures of the whales.

My only recommendation is to down sweep the speakers, as they were very hard to hear! Overall though, great trip, thanks.
