missed the opportunity

UNfortunately my fiancee became ill that morning so we did not go... we were told that there were no refunds or opportunities to re-book... which would be my only complaint.

A good afternoon which delivered as advertised
Sat, Mar 27, 10   3:30 PM rjpatrick Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Individual
We spent about 2.5 hours on the water and saw Sea Lions, Common Dolphins and three Fin Whales.

Inevitably you spend a certain ammount of time waiting for something to happen but it was a nice afternoon so not a problem.

Apart from the Sea Lions they are all hard to photograph though - more of a video camera than a still camera type of activity.

If you lucky you get to see Whales!

We have no luck catching sights of whales migrating athough its supposed to be the season!. The Captain of the Boat was doing his best and has prolonged stay to hopefully get all of us on the Boat to catch glimpses of Whales. At the last few minutes, saw surface of a grey whale briefly, before having to head back to shore - A Singaporean Tourist

This is one of the best values I've ever had! The two hour boat trip is worth the price even without the Seal lions, whales and dolfphins... beautiful views of the coast. The crew is really what made the trip - they are so friendly, enthusiastic and knowlegeable. Tip... we took the last boat of the day and it was much less busy than the noon sailing.

I loved the dolphins, stingrays, sea lions and 2 grey whales. The boat is beautiful and I totally recommend the entire experience. Did I mention that the price was so reasonable? Thanks for a great morning.

We would highly recommend this trip. We saw 3 whales and the captain kept up with them so we could obtain lots of photographs and he provided a lot of factual information. We also saw lots of dolphins and sea lions. Very enjoyable trip and we would certainly go again.

Enjoyable. Did not see any whales, saw dolphins and sea lions. Got a "whale check" to come back for free. Too bad we live out of country, but will try to get back one day, since there is no expiry date on the whale checks.

My friends and I really enjoyed the whale watching trip. We only saw one whale but we were lucky enough to get close. There were lots of dolphins and sea lions and we were really amazed at the sight. The crew was very friendly. I definitely recommend this trip to everyone especially those who love nature.

Did not see any whales

We could not see any whales. The boat driver was just circling around in a small area where dolphins were swimming.

Towards the end he headed home and apologized for not able to spot any whales. He could have gone deeper into the ocean rather than circling in the same area and giving speeches about the lives of dolphins.

Fantastic Experience!
Wed, Dec 23, 09   2:00 PM raynetalia Female Unspecified International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We were in Dana Point for over a week and the ocean mesmerized us. We were so excited to board the boat and head out on the open waters! We saw hundreds of dolphins, what an experience!! We had our 7 year old and 1 year old daughters. Both had a great experience. Unfortunately we did not see any whales on our trip but the other sea life was enough to make this experience memorable. The crew were helpful and had tons of great information.

Enjoyable trip and two hours is just the right length of time. A camera with excellent zoom feature is recommended to get the full effect of your sighting.

A Fantastic Afternoon but All too short
Sat, Oct 3, 09   1:00 PM HMTaylor Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
As Visitors from Scotland watching a Blue whale was just fantastic. The skipper of the boat had to work his socks off to find the whale but the long wait was well worth it, The commentery from the marine biologist was an added feature of the trip.

This was a real highlight of our vacation.

Comfortable boat and good staff.

Well worth the money!!

Great fun

We have really enjoyed the trip. We did see whales and dolphins. The captain was very good with providing information. The 11 am trip was not as busy as the later trip. we had enough space to move around so that we could make pictures and videos.

I would recommend this trip for other people.

Blue Whale and dolphins sighted!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Tue, Sep 1, 09   5:00 PM ctudor Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
Very well organised trip, spacious boat with plenty of seating. 10 dolphins were swimming very close to the boat and we saw a blue whale swimming with its calf .We then sighted another very large blue whale and several sealions. The whole family had a great time and there was sufficient space on the boat for everybody to have a good view.
