Intelligent, comprehensive commentary was much too loud coming out of the speaker on the top deck, abrasive. We saw whales, dolphins, seals, sunshine, ocean and the coastline. Except for the too loud; was a great afternoon..

We are from Washington state....when you go fishing there. You can get. Something you can eat. ....and they don,t

Drop the hook ten minutes. From the dock over a kelp bed...

I was really let down after driving three hours. To get there and spending a.hundread and twenty bucks i wouldn,t reommend this to anybody ..we live in a. RV park and a lot of folks ask about the trip ...i don ,t think you will be hearinh from them

Whales, whales ~~ everywhere whales!

I never saw so many whales in all my life ~~ all at one time. Wow. They were called False Killer Whales and hardly ever seen here at the coastline of Dana Point. Literally hundreds of them.....at least that's what it seemed like. It didn't matter where you looked, there they were, not just one or two, but four, five, eight, ten, swimming together alongside the boat, in front and in back, swimming in unison everywhere! I even saw one "fluke" out of the water. It was fantastic. We had a couple with us from Kitali, Kenya, Africa and they were awe struck. Thank you, Captain Dave.

Salt air and sea breezes

Great outing for grandparents or parents to share with their children. Great hamburgers on board and a great crew. So helpful to the children. And there was a fishing instruction class on board before departure. Advise you to book on line and arrive early. This seems to be a very popular adventure.

'Enjoyed being out on the catamaran...we got to the whales and other marine mammals quickly..

Had spectacular views from the location on the front of the boat...also got to see the "coptercam" put to use that day...I definitely will go out again with Ocean Adventure...

Foggy Day

Unfortunately, it was so foggy that we couldn't see much of anything. Captain Jack was unable to look for animal activity & of course the other boats were in the same situation. He was very sorry & we got rain checks for a better day.

Fun trip! Knowledgeable guides

A wonderful day! The boat was comfortable, and the "guide/pilot" was knowledgeable and very pleasant. We saw three whales, a family of sea lions and a school of dolphins.

Took family on whale watching trip. Saw whales playing and diving, flukes visible. Great trip. Tons of dolphins and sea lions too. Very worthwhile trip. Company has great respect for environment and the animals. Worth a redo.

Glimpse of an Amazing Journey

Very pleasant 2-hour trip from Dana Wharf with great Captains who are Marine Biologists, qualified to talk about the sea life for which we search. On a beautiful day, we looked to the horizon and were not disappointed. A pair of whales kept us thrilled with their spouting and a few flukes, but mostly just playing side by side through the swells. Near the end of our time we encountered a large pod of Bottle-nosed Dolphin. They love to play in the wake of the boat, swimming right along side us ~ not unlike some kids when you get out the camera. :-) When our Captain cranked up the engine to return to port, the dolphin did not miss the opportunity to show off and enjoy the large wake. They rode those waves and leaped out of the water ~ high into the air ~ much to the thrill of the passengers. This was a repeat trip for me and two of my three guests. Without a doubt, we'll do it again!
