Were those blobs in the distance whales?

Although the tour guides were very enthusiastic about sighting two whales, my husband and I could barely see anything. That was the case although we had the best vantage point at the bow of the boat.. Other passengers had the same problem. They tried to take pictures of the whales spouting but the images were so small they looked like dots or were totally invisible.

Beautiful day on the water!

Another wonderful afternoon spent with the knowledgeable folks of Dana Wharf Whale Watching. Although the "Blues" were napping, we were fortunate to see quite a few Bottlenose Dolphins and a variety of birds.

Took my breath away!

Seeing the blue whales that close was breathtaking. I liked that the crew put us at ease right away, telling us that if we did not see whales we would get a ticket to take the trip again anytime. We did see whales, and I am going again next week for more! I am hooked.

Our Captain made the trip!
Tue, Jul 31, 12   10:00 AM ESJones43 Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Without the Captain's knowledgable, interesting, and witty narrative, this trip would have been fine (we saw whales!). I wish I'd noted his name. This guy was terrific and really helped make this trip special. We are not local but have family in Laguna Beach and see them 2x a year - this is not the first whale trip we've done, but it was the best by far.

Enjoyed seeing the whales very much.

My family was very pleased with the Whale Watching tour. The staff and captain were very nice and knowledgable about the whales and other sealife. We had a great time. Would recommend it to anyone who enjoys being on the water and learning about whales, dolphins and other sea creatures.

Such a great trip. Love boat rides anyway. Saw dolfins, seals and 3 blue whales. They are unforgettable and magnificent! We got to be part of the 18% who have ever seen whales in their natural habitat! Would go again in a heartbeat! My daughters are still talking about it!

Amazing!
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 27, 12   5:00 PM krisco610 Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The trip was amazing. My 2 adult daughters and I went as a girls weekend trip. Crew was very nice and very helpful explaining alot about the blue whales and what to watch for. We saw 6 blue whales - spouts as they came up to breathe, backs and small dorsal fin as they eased their way back under and of course the Tail!! The crew would position the boat so all could see from one side and when we saw a spout - quickly headed the boat to a closer position. We got some awesome pictures! The weather was perfect and the trip was excellent! We would recommend this trip and would definitely come again!!

Two Very Enjoyable Hours on the Water
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Fri, Jul 27, 12   5:00 PM MarleneKande Female 70+ Local Family With Children
This was our second sunset whale-watching cruise. We did it a few years ago, so you know we liked it enough to want to repeat. Our first trip we saw a lot of dolphins who were so cute playing with us right close to the boat. Our recent trip we got to see a whale, and we were very excited. It was amazing. We loved the whole two hours on the sea. It felt just great, and my grandchildren got some wonderful pictures of the whale surfacing and diving. Fantastic!!

A great time on the ocean
Fri, Jul 27, 12   2:00 PM tepearson Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
This was a great activity for families with kids. Seeing the blue whale was the highlight, and we watched it surface, swim, and dive several times. The one suggestion would be to have the driver not always direct the boat directly 'at' the whale - those of us who were not able to crowd up to the front of the boat had to look around and between everyone up front. Luckily the whale came up on the side of the boat once, allowing us a better look.

Crew was pleasant and helpful.

Fantastic Trip
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

The captain of the boat did a wonderful job getting us close to two whales and the naturalist on-board was an added bonus that made the trip fun and educational at the same time. Loved the interaction with the dolphins, too! Will definitely do this again. Thanks to the crew for making our adventure spectacular!

Big family with toddlers
Thu, Jul 26, 12   12:00 PM Gerrma Female 30-39 Combination Family With Children
Super fun. Great staff on deck. Captain is detailed. Crew staff is accommodating. Spacious even for strollers. Comfortable seating. We got to see dolphins and whales with the captain giving us a description of the species with a historical background. Food concession is reasonable and good for both children and adults. I booked a few days before the actual date and got 40% off. Must see, highly recommended!

Very Organized And Enjoyable
Tue, Jul 24, 12   5:00 PM PaulaBailey Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The tour was well organized. The boat was not overly crowded and the tour announcer gave us lots of information. We saw plenty of blue whale, dolphins and sea lions. Very enjoyable trip.
