The crew was fantastic at helping us get started fishing since we hadn't fished in many years! They were fabulous and helped make this a very fun event! The boat was wonderful and had great food aboard! It was a fabulous experience that we will be sure to do again!

Though we didn't see whales, we did see a couple different dolphin species. The last species of dolphins that we saw were super friendly and came right up to the boat!

TIP: it gets cold out in the waters. Bring a light jacket.

Wonderful trip & well worth the price!

On our ladies getaway this year we decided to take a whale watching tour in California - what a wonderful choice! Our tour guides were informative and helpful and made every effort to ensure we would see something. Although it wasn't technically whale season (Nov 6), we did see a fin whale - awesome. What I liked best though was the school of dolphins they brought us to - that alone was worth it. Rounded out with a sea lion sunning, this trip was fantastic! Even had we not seen any wildlife (how is that possible?), the ride alone would be worth it.

We spent too long looking at the common dolphins. I felt like we should have moved on to find the whales.

Great boating adventure at an affordable price.

We had a wonderful time! The crew was very helpful and gave us all the facts on the wildlife we saw during our Catamaran ride. We didn't see any whales but we did see hundreds of dolphins as they swam along side the boat for quite some time. It was an incredible experience that we will definitely plan to do again the next time we visit Dana Point. I highly recommend this adventure and taking advantage of 1/2 price Tuesday's made it affordable for us to do something out of the ordinary during our stay at the beach.

Great little Getaway
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sun, Sep 30, 12   2:00 PM Lcrowley3 Female 60-69 Local Family Without Children
What a great way to get on the water, enjoy the SoCal sun, and experience nature! The staff are friendly and helpful. The boat is just big enough and not crowded. From the time you leave the dock it is a wonderful and relaxing experience. You never lose sight of land even though you go out about a mile. The contrast of open sea ahead and mountains to the rear makes you realize how amazing California is.

As your eyes scan the horizon for the tell-tale "puff" of a whale you note the deep greens and blue of the water. Suddenly there dolphins breaching just ahead! Take some videos with your phone so you can re-live the motion as well as the action.

2 hours is just enough..and if you don't find whales the company gives half off coupons for the next trip you take, and once you've gone out there will definitely be a next trip!

Grab some food at Turk's either before or after your trip. Great bar with food place, lots of atmosphere that will remind you of days past, and delicious food!

Whale watching trip was great!
Wed, Sep 26, 12   2:00 PM Harryg Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
The captain went out of the standard 7 mile zone to show us the only Blue whale in the area and it was worth it! I have been on whale watching boats on the east coast and Hawaii and this trip was by far the best. I also enjoyed the dolphins cavorting around the boat. I have recommended this trip to others and plan to go another trip when the whales are "in town".

The trip was fantastic. Although we didn't get to see any whales we were able to seals and several dolphins. It was a lot of fun and a great experience.

The captain was very knowledgeable and passed on to us a lot of information about the sealife. It was a smooth ride and was fun when he speeded up to get further out to sea. (8 miles) Weather was beautiful. We only saw dolphins and some sun fish but enjoyed it anyway. It was good customer service to give us 1/2 price passes for the next time we want to go. I greatly recommend this outing.

No whales, but still enjoyed ourselves

This was our first whale watching adventure and we had high hopes to see some blue whales, but unfortunately none were sighted on this trip. It did appear that the staff made every effort to locate them, but no luck. Still, the day was sunny and the staff was friendly. At the end of the trip, our tickets were returned to us so that we could come back at no additional cost and try another whale watching adventure. We look forward to returning. Pleasant way to spend a couple of hours on the ocean.

We had a good time. Did not see whales, but did see a lot of dolphins. Unfortunately the weather was not good - raining lightly - but we enjoyed our trip anyway. Everyone was pleasant and boat was right on time!!

Three of us did this same activity a couple years ago & it was wonderful. There were so many pelicans etc this time that it wasn't nearly as much fun. We probably won't go again because of this.
