It was a fun time watching whales. The captain stayed with the 3 whales he spotted the whole cruise. Very enjoyable-we will return.

Fun, informative and exhilarating day

So relaxing and invigorating to to experience the whale and dolphin watching tour. Just a couple of hours and a short trip out to sea really centers me and changes my perspective. Wonderful to leave the hustle bustle of life and experience the wonder of these magnificent creatures. The brisk sea air was so refreshing and awakened my senses.

Whale watching from Dana Point

We took the 2pm whale watching tour. We saw 4 grey whales and 1 dolphin. Nice day on the water, spent a great deal of time chasing after the whales.

Our time on board was exciting. We saw so many whales that we stopped counting them. Our Captain was very well informed regarding these mammals and provided us with insights and valuable information. We saw two whales breach at the end of our tour . What a wonderful and educational experience.

One of the most fantastic things I've done
Sun, Mar 8  10:00 AM RebeccaHerna Female 50-59 Local Individual
Had such a grand time that after my two hour cruise I went back to the office and asked how soon I could get back on. Gave her my discount ticket I had just received. Within minutes was on a different boat and enjoyed it even more. Try to get a spot in front. We saw dolphins playing. Spotted a dozen whales at different times. On both trips. I want to go again and take my grandkids. I have another discount ticket, so i will be going again myself. It's relaxing

First Time Whale Watchers!
Sun, Mar 8  10:00 AM AmGirl Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were worried we wouldn't see whales and this would be a wasted trip BUT we saw many whales and dolphins! After the 20 minute ride out to deep water, we were seeing spouts from the whales and there was a pod coming up for air every 3-5 minutes! It was exciting for a Midwesterner! We also saw dolphins with their young and some daring dolphins playing in and out from under the boat! We had a great time and would definitely go again. We went on the 10am tour. It was the perfect time for us.

I was able to obtain multiple photos on my trip whale watching. It was an exciting experience. I would recommend the experience to anyone interested in close observation of the ocean/life/views of Dana Point Harbor. Thank you for the experience and I am planning my next trip whale watching.

Customer service via Telephone is the Worst!!!!!!
Sat, Mar 7  12:00 PM pekenia2629 Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
I recently bought tickets and have been trying to book a date for my son and I and the people on the phone have been very rude! This is my first time wanting to go on a fishing trip for my son's birthday and last Saturday was the day we wanted to go and I called a week in advance and was told nothing was available. I was put on a waiting list and to this date have not received a call back. I personally have not been there, have not met the crew, but over the phone was the worst experience ever. I will loose my tickets and book elsewhere because of that simple fact. UPSET MOTHER!!!!

Lecture and whale watching
Sat, Mar 7  11:30 AM Lindacordero Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
This trip was our first time using this company and we will recommend it to everyone! The lecture was just the right length, although I would recommend that if people attend the lecture, they get priority boarding on the catamaran. We were at the end of the line because of the time to walk from the restaurant. The catamaran was comfortable and We thoroughly enjoyed the excursion.

Enjoyable and educational 2 hour tour
Sat, Mar 7  8:00 AM BethHufford Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The whale watching tour was a great way to start the day, and participate in the Festival of the Whales. The crew was efficient (starting and ending on time), the boat was not too crowded, and we saw whales just a few minutes after leaving the harbor!
