Little hard to find a good observation spot due to crowds. It's a fair deal for another free adventure as no whale was observed. Will come with children again.

I thought the crew was very nice and the boat was well equipped. People never moved so it was a bit hard to move to better viewing areas if you didn't start there. We only saw briefly one small whale, so it was pretty disappointing since we saw on the news there were a lot of whale sightings this year and that is why we booked.

Great Whale and Dolphin Watching Trip

Our trip was exciting as we saw both a humpback whale and a blue whale. The Captain spent extra time following the blue whale and id a great job of telling us about the characteristics of the different whales we were seeing.

It was a beautiful day. The weather couldn't have been better. We saw a humpback and a smaller whale. We also saw common dolphins playing in our wake. I have done this trip before and each time it has been an awesome experience.

Purchased tickets while on vacation. Since not able to print the tickets we were able to take a photo of the receipt screen showing the ticket information and present to the vendor. Worked great!

Great activity except for an equipment malfunction

About an hour into the boat ride my wife was sitting on a raised portion of the boat was sliding off to touch the deck...she is 5' so her legs were a couple of inches from touching the deck. As she slid off a piece of the ship that was tied to this "box area" came loose and she went with it onto the deck, bruised and pretty shaken up. A deck hand came over and secured the portion that came loose and asked her if she was OK, she said I think so. I was with her at this point. We went down in the galley to purchase a drink and told the bartender what had happened and he was pretty excited to go fix it but as soon as we told him it had been secured he lost interest,,,didn't even ask if she was ok. No customer service or concerns to the right persons I guess.

It was nice we did see 1 blue whale even tho you cannot get very close to even see. All our 2 hours were spent on just seeing the one whale (which we were happy to see), but no time was left to see any dolphins or sea lions. We had 3 grandchildren with us plus our grown children for a birthday celebration day. It could have been made a little more exciting with seeing different things...too much time spent on waiting for the whale to surface again...little children would have enjoyed the dolphins & sea lions too...a little disappointing

Dana Point Whale Watching Catamaran
Sat, Aug 30, 14   10:00 AM mkametani Male 60-69 Local Family Without Children
We tried to book the catamaran online but none were scheduled.

However when we arrive for the reservation, our tour was on the catamaran.

We've been on several of the other DP boats but this was different and we enjoyed the ride.

Did not see as many whales as in the past so the ride made up for it.

Would definely return with friends and more family.
