Fun and Educational!

The crew was great-very knowledgeable about ocean life not only in this particular area, but also knew migration habits of whales from Alaska to Mexico. Dolphin pod was fun to watch, especially the babies jumping out of the water. They're so cute!

Will do this again the next time we are in Dana Point.

Although advertised as a whale tour, the captain went after dolphins near shore and made no attempt to look for whales. VERY disappointing.

Very good time. Well worth the price.

We saw two grey whales and a few dolphins. Even without that, however, the boat ride itself was worth the price. The day was beautiful, the scenery from the boat was great, and the crew was very good. My wife and I really enjoyed it.

Fun trip out to sea!

This was an enjoyable trip, we got to see part of a whale who was being stubborn but overall I enjoyed the trip out to sea. I liked the fact that the tour company wants to ensure your satisfaction and provided passes for a future whale watching trip, although we wont be in Orange County again in the near future we will definitely consider this company for next time.

I can't say enough about how much fun we had on this trip. It was an opportunity to really put my DSLR Nikon to the test. I got some amazing shots of dolphins swimming next to the boat, body surfing and flying in midair. We went on a Tuesday, for half price, can't beat that deal! Our relatives from Indiana really enjoyed it, but so did we.

Great fishing, lots of fish caught, the weather was warm, clear, seas were calm and blue skys. We also were able to see whales and dalphins, along with sea birds and sea lions. Just a fantastic trip and well worth doing often.

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful day out on the ocean seeing not only whales, but many, many dolphins. The crew was helpful and informative. This trip was truly a delight - I'd do it all over again! :-)

We didn't see any whales but we did see two different dolphin pods (common and Rizzo). Staff were extremely knowledgable about marine life which made the trip very enjoyable and interesting. We ended up staying out nearly 30 minutes longer as we found the pod of Rizzo's later in the trip which was very much appreciated. Beautiful day to be out on the ocean!!!

Me and my wife had a blast watching a gray whale and all the dolphins. The captain of the boat was very knowledgeable and very nice to talk to. I highly recommend this to any and everyone! We will definitely come again.

We saw whales!!
Sun, Jan 23, 11   10:00 AM azbryants Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
..and dolphins! A great ride, the captain and crew were entertaining and very knowledgeable. Word to the motion-sickness prone: don't go down to the galley to sit. Stay up top, where you get plenty of air, and are up higher! Besides, you can see forever up top!

We enjoyed our trip. We did not see any whales but the dolphins were spectacular. The staff made every effort to see that we had a great trip. Highly recommend!

PS- even on the warmest day, it's chilly on the water, so layer up!
