Awesome time!!

We went out on the 6:30 am trip. To our surprise, this trip had 5 professional deep sea fishing instructors from "Owner" hooks. They gave two fishing classes on board as we got underway. When we were on the fishing beds, these Guys gave awesome advise, tips, and tricks everything, bait size, baiting techniques, casting, even reeling in the "big one"!!!

We didn't see a blue whale, but did see a blow from a distance. Witnessed many bottlenose and short-beaked common dolphins with the help of an awesome cetacean naturalist, David Beeninga Great time!!

Spectacular

As if bragging rights to seeing the blue whale in all its glory (or at least about 40 percent of it as it submerged and emerged from a deep dive) weren't enough, we were treated to a totally unprompted, enthusiastic show put up by the hundreds of dolphins racing our boat! What a treat for adults and kids alike...and so much better than paying exorbitant Seaworld ticket prices. There is nothing like seeing the animals wild and free, and oh so happy in the deep blue ocean where they belong. Our captain was determined to make the whale watching happen, even after we sighted one very briefly and it dived back in. We kept looking, and patiently waiting (in the meanwhile being treated to the amazing dolphins), and then received the ultimate reward: the blue whale. Absolutely amazing.

We saw it all!

Our hope for this trip was to spend some time on the water and maybe catch a glimpse of a dolphin or two. Wow! We saw, quite possibly, a hundred dolphins splashing and playing around. On top of that, we saw several whales and one even breached, giving us the spectacular fin shot. I couldn't believe it! It was a great trip, and the crew did a fantastic job. Highly, highly recommended.

I would highly recommend this tour if you're in Dana Point! The crew was friendly and knowledgeable, the boat was beautiful, and we saw plenty of ocean life on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon.

Fantastic Experience

We saw 2 magnificent blue whales and a huge sunfish that was sunning himself and did not move away. The crew gave us a lot of information about the animals we were looking at. Even though the water had high waves getting out into the ocean, the captain made the ride very smooth until we were in calmer waters. Also, the hot dogs were delicious.

Great crew made the trip

This was a last minute decision to take a whale watching trip while visiting the Dana Point area. The ship was a Catamaran style hull which made the trip very comfortable. The captain and crew were very professional and full of local sea knowledge. The ship was well equipped and clean. Although the captain's ultimate goal of finding whales did not pan out and he informed us of that before we set sail, he was aware of a pod of dolphins which he found for us and we got a great show watching them in their habitat. Overall I would highly recommend this ship and crew. We had a great time.

Great captain and mate, but poor scheduling
Fri, Aug 22, 14   2:00 PM mlajr1 Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The captain and mate were dedicated to finding exciting wildlife during the tour. It was amazing. I wish the scheduling company had done a better job with our charter however, as we were put on a boat with a group that had charter the trip for a private party. We felt as if we were intruding.

Great tour, not worth full price
Tue, Aug 19, 14   12:00 PM lgrisafi Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
We took advantage of the half-price Tuesday deal and we had a great time! The scenery is beautiful and we were lucky enough to see two blue whales and a heard of dolphins, which is very rare. Our guides were great and very knowledgeable about marine life. Don't think I would pay the full price for this tour, but take advantage of the discount if you can!

A cool evening

Our group was from AZ so anything out on the ocean was wonderful.The cool breeze, the chance to see whales, or sharks, or dolphins was enough to please us. It was a beautiful two hours out on the ocean.

A fun afternoon on the Pacific!
Tue, Aug 12, 14   5:00 PM Jferdinand Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
My family (husband, son 9 and daughter 7) had a fun afternoon out on the Pacific. The crew was fabulous - committed to making sure we got to see a whale (which we did - do to their persistence and expertise), many, many dolphin and a few seals. We learned a lot and our kids were thrilled with the experience. The boat was clean, comfortable and safe.
