saw some great whales, information was great ! If you did not get a spot in front it was very difficult to see the whales and take pictures. I unfortunately did not get a good view. I did manage to get a couple of pictures but missed most because the front was PaCKED!!! it would be nice if the captain would turn the boat a bit so people on the side could see too! Overall a great time.

We particullarly appreciated all the information about the whales that was given during our excursion. It was

very informative and fascinating. We did see at least 4 blue whales that day. The marine specialists who were also on board could have mingled and been available for questions.

We looked for a specific whale, saw it twice, and saw another once. Didn't see dophins at all. I assumed we'd see more animals, but it might have been the time of the day (5pm.) All in all at least we saw something, and the boat was nice.

AMAZING and UNFORGETABLE!!!!

I highly recommend this whale watching adventure. We saw about a dozen whales up close and personal. The staff are extremely helpful, knowledgable and pleasant. It was SO much fun that I purchased their CD "7 Miles from Dana Point" (although the whales are SO close we only had to go 3 miles out) to support their efforts. Everyone on board had a jaw-dropping wonderful time! The catamaran was very comfortable, low to the water with higher standing platforms. It was just perfect! I plan on going again very soon! What an amazing and unforgetable trip of a lifetime!

Not too long, not too short - perfect for young children. You might want bring a strong lens if you plan to take good pictures. It was in the middle of summer which was great because it tends to be about 15 degrees cooler on the water. Get your cameras ready because there were quite a few that made appearances.

The captain only knew the basics about the whales we were out to find. When we got to a location, he said there were 3 whales in the area but we only followed one that could be identified -- Lefty. It would have been nice to have a naturalist or someone more in the know there to answer questions.

Whales, Whales Everywhere!

The skipper on our catamaran couldn't have been more right on in his sighting spots. There were whales all around us, and at a time close enough that you could reach over the rails and pat a Blue! There was also a very knowledgeable representative from the Institute of Cetacean Research who answered any and all questions, and provided additional information on the whales and their habits. Perfect trip!

we were out for 5 hours. i understand that some may not catch fish but my wife won the jack pot w a 12 inch red snapper she caught 3 of the 9 fish caught that day. a boat full of 42 people which half were sick and puking all over the place and the other half including me spent the 5 hours pissed there was not even a bite. it was only made okay because my wife won the jack pot which should of never happened. the boat food was okay nothing special and the weather was perfect . I love deep sea fishing and i will be going again im just going to go further south to San Diego

We went out to find blue whales and found 3 of them with full view of them up close. Loved it. The boat and crew were super nice too. Just being out on the water on a comfortable boat made for a beautifully relaxing day.
