Great idea for a family vacation
Sun, Mar 13, 11   8:00 AM diazk302 Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
My family was in from out of town, and wanted to go whale watching. I found this boating service and I must say it was great! The price was fantastic, and the crew was very friendly and actually stopped the boat when my mother saw a whale. We were able to see a gray whale, and dolphins. The dolphins were the highlight of the trip for the small kids we had with us, they loved that they were swimming right next to the boat.

Great Family Activity

We took our 6 year old and 9 year old out on the 8:00 boat ride having just arrived from Texas the night before (experiencing a 2 hour time differential and the morning daylight savings took effect)... obviously we did not take that into account when booking! However, despite the very early rise, we loved every second of it. We live on the coast of Texas, but have never had the opportunity to see whales. It was fantastic! The kids loved it and so did we. The boat was spacious, and the staff was great. I would strongly recommend dressing in layers and taking a high speed camera.

It was very fun, we saw a gray whale and a ton of dolphins, but we went on the 8:00 - 10:00 am tour and it was absolutely freezing, so make sure you dress warm.

Our Trip

My husband & I took our boys (ages 12 & 15). We all had a wonderful time. Saw lots of common dolphin & Seal Lions. Unfortunatley we didn't see any grey whales. We were a little sad but we still had a wonderful time & would recommend going.

Not Very Impressed
Sat, Mar 12, 11   1:00 PM syryn7 Female 30-39 Local Family With Children
Saw a few dolphin in the beginning of the tour, other than that we were just taken aimlessly for over an hour around in hopes of catching a whale sighting. Not offered the guarentee of getting a 2nd ride free if no whale sighting. Animals are unpredictable but it seems it would be a better idea for this company to be constantly monitoring so when a tour goes out they head to where "the action is" instead of randomly driving around. (The tour who was right before us had 3 sightings so it's a wonder why we didn't just go straight towards that area).

Day of Fun!

Went on excursion in hopes of seeing whales - there were absolutely NO whales in sight. We did stumble upon a pod of dolphins which were pretty amazing and quite playful.

One whale, lots of dolphins!
Sat, Mar 12, 11   11:00 AM lyzurdia Female 20-29 Local Group of Friends
We only saw one whale, but there were dozens upon dozens of dolphins. Some were even jumping out of the water. I recommend the 2 hour tour; we were getting hungry by the end and I don't think we would have made it through 4 hours!

We were able to see whales, sea lions and many dolphins. The crew was knowledgeable, so we learned quite a bit about all the animals. It was a fun, and educational experience for the whole family.

will definitely recommend dana point
Sat, Mar 12, 11   9:00 AM abpeckich Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Captain Corey was wonderful. Taught us all about the whales. Where they come from and where they go. the difference between the hieight of the fluke and how long they can stay under water. it was great. i felt very safe. all workers on board were kind to guide us carefulle while we went in and as we came off the boat, making sure we did not slip or fall. we didnt see any whales and we were pleasantly surprised to receive a whale ticket.

we did not know that we had a cook on the boat, but the bacon sure smelled good... will absolutely recommend dana point whale watching

So much fun - love the captain and crew, all so friendly and very funny! Glad we got to see whales since we heard the last 5 trips before us they didn't get to see anything! I guess we really got lucky! =)

I loved it. I would definitely do it again. My daughter and husband enjoyed it too and we are definitely going next year. We also invited all of our family members and thought it was a great thing for us to come together and enjoy.
