No whales seen but tried hard

the captain did his best to find us a whale but no luck this day. He did put us in several dolphin pods with many baby dolphins to watch. Sunfish, anchovies, sunshine and good smooth ride still made it a good day to be on the water. and they made a good grilled cheese sandwich too!

This is one of the worst experiences that I had. The customer service received at this place was by far one of the most horrid situations. I got passed from person to person and each time had to retell a story and then got accused and blamed myself for a mistake on their end that they refused to acknowledge. The sad part is that I had proof in my hands, had an extensive call record with details, but there was still a lack of wanting to even look at this. Bringing a group of eager students from a university, this was an exciting trip and we had to buy tickets ahead of time. Because of mistakes on the company's end, we are now out several hundred dollars and they still refuse to acknowledge their mistake and work with us. Now I'm in the process of trying to work through legal means to get our money back and try to move on from one of the worst situations of customer service and organization that I have ever seen!!!

Just Plain AWESOME

If you've never gone then what are you waiting for. Beautiful day out on the ocean looking for Dolphin and Whales. Came across hundreds of Dolphin and two blue whales. Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour out of Dana Point is awesome. The crew is very friendly and knowledgable and the catamaran is the way to go. Very comfortable, clean and has a nice kitchen/galley area. Would do this over and over.

Whale Watching / Dolphins
Tue, Mar 24, 09   4:00 PM tschenk Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We are from Wisconsin and purchased tickets in advance. This worked very well.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to cancel our 1200 reservation, but were able to quickly reschedule to the 1600 time slot by going online.

The cruise was very nice, even though we did not see any whales. We were given the replacement tickets for a later date. (I'm not sure when we would use them.)

Overall, still worth the trip!

Thanks!!!

Loved the dolphins!

On our whale watching tour (Aug. 16) we saw two blue whales and a pod of dolphins. My grandchildren loved the dolphins! They were less impressed by the whales--but I think that was because they didn't quite comprehend the size of what they were seeing. The tour guide's commentary was informative. We had a great time.

A bad day for fishing but a great time on Ocean!
Sun, Apr 3, 11   12:45 PM TroyTerBest Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The fish didn't bite much at all, but the crew was energetic to help get you baited in the water to try. The day was beautiful and the food on board was fabulous. Still a great time. Time seemed long but that was because we didn't get many fish on the whole boat (about 6 or 7). Was really hoping to have the kids catch something. Maybe next time. For some reason when we checked in early 2 1/2 hrs we were overcharged (kids rods were free) and did not receive the boarding tickets. So after we stood in line to get a good rail spot we were last on board after I went back to the office for the tickets. They remembered me because of the refund of the 2 kids rentals. The crew wanted fish for us too and helped out whenever needed. Would definitely try again.

Great whale watching experience
Sat, Mar 8, 14   11:30 AM TroyFerreira Male 40-49 Local Couple on a Date
I have never been whale watching before. I didn't think that we would see much. Maybe some dolphins and sea lions and possibly a whale's tail in the distance. I was totally amazed by how much we saw. We saw several whales. One even jumped completely out of the water in front of the boat and breached a couple more times. The boat captain was very respectful of the whales. He got us close enough to see, but not too close so we wouldn't put stress on them. We also saw a huge pod of dolphins. There must have been a thousand of them. We got great footage of them surfing in the wake of the boat. Overall a great experience.
