We saw a mother and baby gray whales. The baby must have been very happy -- it broke the surface (breeched) repeatedly. We also got to see lots of dolphins and sea lions

Fun time
Sat, Mar 26  10:00 AM nelsonsmith Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
This is fun, but I love going out on any boat. The only thing my husband and I did not care for was the speakers are much too loud and irritating. Also I think the price is a little high. There was an art class or something that got to board before anyone else so they got the good seats. That was not well accepted by a lot of people.

Just about perfect day on the water! Would have been even better if sea life had cooperated, but we saw some whales, and that was very cool. Crew was great, even gave my visiting in-laws their tickets back for souvenir.

We law lots of dolphins and one humpback whale, but we saw her 4 times. The crew is very knowledgeable and knows where to go to find the animals. They shared lots of good information during the trip. Nice boat as well.

My brother and I thoroughly enjoyed our whale watching experience. We saw at least a dozen whales, and many breached the water for us! I got great photos and video. The captain gave an excellent narrative, indicating where to look and educating us on gray whales, sea lions, gulls and more!

Unbelievable sights!
Tue, Mar 15  12:00 PM DonnaBieschk Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Our first glimpse at sea was the sea lions basking in the sun on a the rocky breakwater, then in the distance, between the bow and starboard side of the boat, we saw gray whales swimming from Baha to Alaska. None of them breached the water though, but that was OK. Just seeing them exhale steam from, their bodies and have their backs skim the water was a neat sight. Not to be outshone, we drifted through a pod of about 500 common dolphin, who darted alongside and underneath and back out from the boat. They were speedy little creatures and a delightful sight for sure! On our way back, we saw some sea lions perched on two different buoys and I saw one closer to shore doing the back float, minding his own business. The crew members were friendly and informative, too. We hope to take the tour whenever we visit Southern California again.

Great for relaxing fishing time!

If you don't care about catching keeper fish to take home, then this is for you! You catch lots of fish, but they usually are too small to keep. Of course, the fish you can keep are pretty decent size and taste delicious. This trip is fun and great for beginners! The crew was super friendly as usual, and the food is great! We had fun and that's all that matters!

Best part of our trip to California
Sat, Mar 5  2:00 PM bramsay404 Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family Without Children
I would recommend this to anyone visiting the Dana Point area during the whale migration. We saw humpback and grey whales and dozens of dolphins that loved to swim right in front of the boat.

The staff were excellent and one gave a little concert on the way back to the dock....very nice touch
