We saw lots of dolphins and a blue whale up close when it "mugged" our boat! Thrilling!

Slow fishing
Sat, Jul 27, 13   6:30 AM ANNA92688 Female 20-29 Local Family Without Children
It was slow fishing this time. Lots of bites, but that's it. The crew did try hard to help us catch fish, but I guess there wasn't any in there. Good luck to future fishermen, hope you have better luck.

We had both been out individually on this trip before and seen different wildlife . This time the Blue Whale came so close and we saw detail that we could only have dreamed of. The crew looked after us well and let us know at every stage , what they were doing and why and what expectations we should have.Thank you.

Super Fun, but have lunch before

The galley didn't have very many options (not like on the fishing boats at dana warf) and it is way over priced. Other than that, boat is smooth even on rough windy day and lots of room.

Incredible Life Experience!!!
Tue, Jul 23, 13   2:00 PM evancarterty Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I highly recommend this tour to anyone! We saw numerous whales, and the captain provided a lot of interesting information about them. He followed them, announced where to look for them, what to look for. We saw blue whales and they spouted water through their blow holes, and got to see their tales as they dove. The captain found out about a large group of dolphins so he took us to that area. There were dolphins everywhere!!! They were jumping, and swimming beside the boat. It was an incredible site to see! Great afternoon, with a clean, friendly staff.

A great day on the water!
Mon, Jul 22, 13   2:00 PM bookends26 Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
My parents were visiting from the East Coast, so we wanted to take advantage of the chance to see blue whales. We enjoyed a great couple of hours out on the Ocean Adventure, a fast, clean boat with a nice and knowledgeable captain. We caught sight of two blues, including a great show of one's tail--well worth the trip! One note: The parking was very full that day at the Dana Wharf location, but if you go into the whale watch office, you can obtain a day pass to park in a separate lot.

It was amazing all the dolphins and whales we saw. The crew were fantastic and helpful. I grew up in So. California but never did this adventure. We were visiting family and were looking for something different to do and this was it. Would highly recommend!

Fun and Informative Day
Tue, Jul 16, 13   2:00 PM Dollfinn Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The captain was full of interesting information. It was all done in a fun way. He worked hard to have us see a whale, even allowed the tour to go overtime. Dolphins and sea lions were also a lot of fun. This was the second time we choose to go and take our visiting relatives.

Best Pick of my Vacation!
Tue, Jul 16, 13   2:00 PM LindaBrenkus Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
I was a little leery about getting motion sickness. Took my dramamine and had a fantastic time. The captain did an awesome job explaining everything in detail and went out of his way to make sure we saw a blue whale. There were no words to explain the unbelievable view of the whale and dolphins. I highly recommend the trip and would do it again. Dana Point was beautiful. Thank you again to the crew for a fantastic memory.

Captain was fabulous
Tue, Jul 16, 13   12:00 PM JanT13 Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
My 7 year old granddaughter and went out on a 12:00 PM sail. The previous sail had seen two blue whales that were familiar to the Captain and crew. The Captain took us to the location where he thought we'd get to see two other whales heading south. They did not show, BUT we got to see a whale new to the area thanks to the Captain's determination. The information about the whale was very informative. Getting to see the largest mammal on earth is something we will never forget!
