Fantastic Excursion with Lots to See

We were very fortunate to have a great whale-watching outing! We saw a huge pack of dolphins -- probably over 50 -- playing together in the water and then saw several whales. The captain and naturalist did a great job spotting the animals. It was an amazing excursion!

This was a very special trip for my husband and I. We had never been whale watching and this did not disappoint! We were very fortunate to enjoy many sightings of the massive Blue Whale in all their glory. The crewman estimated it at about 80-90 feet long and the boat was 60 feet so you had some perspective of the size. At one point we even saw three of them in extremely close to proximity to one another but not too close to the boat. One of the crewmen said we were experiencing something very special and we all quieted down our level of excitement in order to hear them breathe.

The boat, on board refreshment-availability, crew, and the amazing sightings all exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!

This was a great experience. The crew were knowledgable and friendly - they worked diligently to ensure that everyone had a great experience. We saw 3 blue whales and many dolphins on our tour. I highly recommend this tour.

This was our first time doing the whale watching and it was such a great experience that we want to go again and bring the kids and the family and friends. We saw 3 whales and a lot of dolphin. It was so amazing. The 3 guys that were on the boat with us were very helpful and very happy and wonderful to be around. We are looking forward to going again soon. Thank you so much for a wonderful memory.

Little bit disappointed

I was take 2 hours Whale watching adventure tour this afternoon at 2:00pm, unfortunately There are no much to see, I am trying to experience it and will introduce to my future groups, I used to take them to Universal, Disnerland etc. I think will be cool to take them to the sea and watching whale, since you are the experts you know when and where whale will come out, please avoid afternoon 2:00pm schedule departure, since there is only one or two whale around, I wondering if I should arrange it for my groups or not? Today I was little bit disappointed by the experience.

Had a lovely time, did not see any whales but a lot of dolphin. I could have spent all day just watching them play around the boat.

Good time

Crew was very helpful especially detangling us! A little hard to cast with so many people for an inexperienced fisherman. Wish we had caught something but one guy on the boat caught a 20-25 lb yellowfin. It was beautiful to see up close. Will go again but try the 3/4 day for better odds at catching something to bring home.

This trip is a great family activity not only did we see tons of dolphins we even spotted a hammerhead shark!

The crew is super friendly and made the trip so enjoyable. Even though we didn't see a whale (off season) it was a great boat ride along the coast and totally kept my kids (12&5) entertained. We will definitely do this again next time we are in Dana Point.
