exciting to see the fin whales and numerous dolphi

One of the best times my family and I have ever had. Wish it was longer we enjoyed the few fin whales we saw and the tons of dolphins. It was one of the greatest experiences we have ever had and we will do it again next time we visit Dana Point

went out on the 2:00 p.m. tour - ran into a huge pod of dollpins that swam beside the boat. The crew chief did an excellent job explaining the various sea life we were watching. No whales on this trip - but we will return another day and maybe see these creatures!

Mommy n calf.
Sat, May 16  2:00 PM vancarmean Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The boat was large with plenty of room for many people, nice seats n indoor accommodations with refreshments n snacks. We quickly found a mother grey whale with calf. We followed them for 40 minutes. Good video n pics. After that we did not find any more whales or dolphin. Fortunately the weather was beautiful so we enjoyed the rest of the ride. Very important to review on-line how whales recent trips are seeing before going. Do your homework or you could be disappointed.

A Ripoff
Sat, May 16  2:00 PM Leenie60 Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Other
I am a photographer and made the trip specifically for photos. Your website lists any sightings daily, but this day was nothing. We were told they (dolphins, whales, etc.) had all migrated. Well, then, you need to end the tours when they are all gone. I wouldn't have booked during May! A very boring 2 hr boat ride! I wasn't interested in the real estate on shore. Also, we get back and we are told the reason for no activity was that there was no food for the whales! Your fault! You should have brought some! Then we might have seen something! Very disappointed!!!

Nice Experience
Tue, May 12  12:00 PM tclermont Female 30-39 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We saw one humpback whale and one gray whale with a calf. There were also dolphins, seals, and sea lions. We sat on the top of the boat which provided us with a nice view, but only from one side of the boat. The whales happened to be on the other side of the boat and it was hard to see without having to go down to the deck. Wished we could have gotten closer to the whales.

We have wanted to see whales and they delivered! We spent over 30 minutes with four whales nearby. Sometimes they came very close to the boat that we were on.

Best ever
Wed, May 6  12:00 PM richardfpowe Male 70+ Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We were thrilled with the sighting of mothers with their baby's, an uncountable number of dolphins. However we all agreed that the Captains knowledge of these mammals was outstanding, educating and valuable to us. We came away with a far greater understanding and knowledge then we had before the trip/adventure.

Thank you

Mike, Dick and Ruth

You'll come back over and over
Wed, May 6  12:00 PM JanineBar Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
This is the best place to go whale/dolphin/sea lion watching. All crew members are polite and help in any way necessary. Boats are clean and well kept. This is the only Company that I will go with- they even have a drone to spot whales and dolphins. I've been over 50 times with this Company. I moved out of state but when I come back to visit, I always go out with them!!!

Pleasant afternoon
Sun, May 3  5:00 PM Mjackson02 Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Individual
After spending 14 hours either at airport or flying I continued my day going on tour. It was very relaxing trip and rewarded with several whale, dolphin and various wildlife sightings. Highly recommended

About the staff
Tue, Apr 28  10:00 AM LaurieBaker Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
Just wanted to send a note saying how great the entire staff was. The staff on the boat were awesome, helpful and informative. The captain went out of his way to search out dolphin and whale's for us. I felt that if we didn't see any that he would not quit till we did. Enjoyed his narration on how the community of captains helped each other to locate the mammals.

Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Our whale watching day was awesome! Saw sea lions, dolphins and moms and baby whales. We had a visitor from the Midwest and he was very impressed.
