Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

We had a fantastic adventure watching the blue whales and dolphins. The skipper was great and so forthcoming with lots of facts about all of sealife we saw. The crew was very friendly as were the other people on the trip. There were so many blue whales we couldn't even count them all. What a treat for my daughter's 40th birthday!!

My friend and I were overjoyed with the adventure. We saw much more than we expected - many, many blue whales in one area and then later hundreds of dolphins lined up on both sides of our catamaran making sort of v on both sides of the boat - some leading, some following and some criss-crossing and jumping in front of us. They were having as much or more fun than we were. DON'T MISS IT - IT WAS AN ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME I'LL NEVER FORGET!!! I'm so glad I finally took the time to go and enjoy

Our captain certainly had us on his agenda as he ran that boat everywhere searching for whales. He found over a DOZEN for us to watch!! My young cousins and I were thrilled with this cruise!

Lived here locally for over 15 years, and have put this off until now. Really glad I went. And, the sightings were Blue Whales at that. Got 50 photos - mother & calf together, flukes, etc. in 2 hours. Also, tour conducted very well to minimize disturbance to the whales.

We had a wonderful time. The crew on the boat were very nice and helpful. We saw Whales and were excited about everything on the trip. This was the first Whale Watching trip for my daughter and grandson and it was a great success. Thank you. I like the fact that the parking was close and free and the trip to the open water was short, that was a good incentive to come to Dana Point rather another site.

We went out on the Dana Pride which is a well maintained vessel in excellent condition and provides plenty of space for passengers with good views on all sides. As it was the midday sailing we ordered cheeseburgers and cold drinks on board and enjoyed a delicious lunch while seated on the upper deck. Not far out of the harbor we were treated to marvellous close sightings of dolphins and blue whates in great numbers. The Captain's commentary was excellent and he is clearly very knowledgable about the undersea geography and the marine mammals in the area. This is an outing we will repeat,

Blue Whale Sighted!

Everything went well on this tour. We saw many dophin pods swimming and jumping up out of the water.

Then suddently - a blue whale surfaced - did her spouting several times - arched her back, and down she went. My granddaughter and I will never forget the beauty of seeing the largest animal on earth. Our captain was an expert at handling the boat, and narrating - keeping us imformed the entire tour.

Amazing whales!

The boat ride was so delightful, we would have been happy without even seeing whales. But wow did we ever see whales! Up close and personal as they circled the boat and performed in front of us. The guide was terrific and enthusiastic about finding whales. The entire boat cheered him. We will definitely go again!

Educational and Exciting for the Kids

The kids were so excited and enthusiastically peered thru their binoculars at each appearance of a whale. They were especially entrigued at the whale's ability to spray water up several feet. This wildlife experience provided them with an educational and unforgettable experience. The adults in our group enjoyed it too as well as the fresh air, cool breeze and sunshine which was so uplifting.

Father & Son Day Trip
Mon, Aug 13, 12   10:00 AM bradbecker Male 60-69 Local Family With Children
My son (15) and I took a 1/2 trip on the Reel Fun Boat. We had a blast! The entire crew was extremely helpful. If you're a novice at fishing (like us) be sure to grab this boat. The captain kept us moving to find the fish, the cheeseburgers were hot and delicious and the beer/coke were ice cold, not to mention reasonably priced. Ir you're looking for a great way to spend a little quality time with your son or daughter, go out with these guys.
