Truly Amazing! Can Not Wait To Do This Again!

My sons and I loved it! We saw dolphin sign right away, several swam with the ship and I got some fabulous photos. We also saw two Gray Whales and traveled with them for several minutes. The bonus was when we slowed to the outer sea buoy that was packed with seals, a seal pup came up to the ship and checked us all out - he was so adorable. The Captain was extremely knowledgeable and provided the perfect amount of information. The crew was very friendly and my sons had a very tasty lunch from the galley. Dress very warmly - a sweatshirt is not enough for an excursion in open water!

Unique Experience

The whale watching adventure was a unique experience. We saw sea lions, many dolphins and a blue whale. It is incredible to see these anminals in their natural habitat. Way better than the zoo. The boat was clean and comfortable, and the ride was enjoyable. The staff was very friendly. We went on Tuesday which is half off, a great value! I would definitely recommend this adventure.

My husband and I and our group of friends had a great time! We saw 5 whales and a 300 hundred pod of dolphins! What more could you ask for! The catamaran was comfortable, in great shape and the staff was awesome! Will definitly recomend this to all our friends! Who knew this was all in our back yard!

Thanks for the great adventure!

Rode with a huge school of dolphins. Didn't get to see any whales, but it was amazing. It was a very windy, choppy day so make sure you take lots of things for motion sickness.

I am from Dana Point and had never been Whale Watching. My boys are huge animal lovers and took them on this trip. They had a great time! We saw lots of dolphins, a seal and a mother and baby whale. The crew was great as well. Very nice. Will be back again! Thank you for everything.

We had a group of 5 on the boat "reel fun" I didn't catch anything but still had a fun time with my buddies.

this was the 3rd time on this boat and night fishing is a lot of fun and my group will be returning time and time again.

this crew was there when the people needed them and let you fish how you wanted to.

We had a great time & the staff was excellent

Great experience for us non fisherman. The staff was right there to help us when we caught a fish as we had no equipment.

It was the deep sea fishing experience I was hoping to have for our family with 3 kids, 10, 15, & 17.

Turk's for dinner afterwards was excellent too!

Did not see ANY Whales

We were both very disapointed that we didn't get to see a Whale on the day (3/12) . They did not offer another trip out or anything. We will not be using this tour boat again.

Great time for my family

My two year old loved being on the boat. There were not a lot of people on the boat, since we went early in the season. I am not sure that my daughter would have enjoyed it if it was peak whale watching season with 150 people on the boat. But, the captain did find us a whale and her calf to watch. The trip was very educational, too.

We had a fantastic trip off Dana Point. My husband and I were vacationing in So. California. A happy retreat from N.Y. This was a real highlight for us. We had the opportunity to see courting among 3 gray whales, literally right next to The Dana Pride. Extraordinary. Worth every penny!

Good trip

The crew is very friendly and informative. The boat was nice and not too crowded so we were able to get a good view of all the sealife. It was something that we will keep on our list to take all of our out of town visitors on to see the wildlife of CA.
