Nice trip
Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sun, Oct 25, 09   4:00 PM johnclanphea Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
The boat captain was professional, courteous, knowledgable, and dedicated. We did find a whale to look at and that was exciting for someone who has never seen one before. The boat ride alone was a great way to pass the time. So even if we hadn't found a whale, the ride was nice. The price was not out of line. My wife and my son had a good time too. My wife did have one complaint. According to the trip description, brownies were supposed to have been handed out but we didn't get any.

We couldn't have picked a better day. The weather was beautiful and we saw all you can see on an outing like this. We actually saw a young blue whale (about 70' long) feeding in an area for about 1/2 hour. We even saw the fluke when he dove. Also saw seal lions, pelicans and various birds. One of the most exciting moments was the pod of dolphins (it looked like over 100) who were swimming and playing along with and around the catamaran. The staff was pleasant and very informative.

Great sunset cruise

We saw one blue whale...way, way in the distance, and the crew tried really hard to "catch it" before it made a dive, but didn't succeed.

We had a wonderful run with a huge pod of dolphins though...a great experience.

The crew was very jovial and accommodating. I would recommend, even if you don't see a whale!!

The cruise was everything we had hoped for, except someone forgot to tell the whales of our rondavue point., HA! Never the less, it was very enjoyable, & relaxing.

We intend to book another cruise on our next trip.

Delightful afternoon with whales and dolphins
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Sep 29, 09   1:00 PM CynthiaDeM Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We learned of this excursion while guests at the Laguna Surf Resort. We spent a great two hours in search of dolphins and whales. We ended up in the midst of a large pod of common dolphins which were playful and entertaining. On the way back to shore we were lucky to spot a fin whale and observe its activities .

The cruise was comfortable, and the crew friendly and helpful. There was ample room for the passengers, so the visibility was great. I would recommend this cruise at full price; but at half price, it was an exceptionally good deal.

Excellent Catamaran Adventure Cruises trip
Sun, Sep 20, 09   1:00 PM tierramike Male 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
Our 3-generation group (Father, Mother, 2 Daughters and 1 granddaughter) had a terrific time on our whale watching trip on Sunday, Sept. 20, 2009. The weather was perfect, with warm, sunny sky, very light breeze and light, glassy seas. The boat was nice and roomy, and certainly didn't feel crowded with around 29 pasengers and crew of 4. All of the crew were very friendly and helpful. The marine biologist on board, Morgan Ritchie, and her assistant were very knowledgeable and added a lot to the trip. We even bought one of Morgan's excellent photos on the way in. We saw three different blue whales, which are awesome creatures. We also saw a mola mola (ocean sunfish) near the boat and a large marlin that jumped clear out of the water several times, though it was too far away to photograph. And, of course, we saw common dolphins - hundreds of them! Many of the dolphins were accompanied by their young ones, as they swam right next to the boat and jumped around in large areas near the boat. Almost everywhere we looked, there were dolphins. My old digital camera was way too slow on the shutter speed to get the really good shots of the whales venting upon surfacing or having their tails high in the air as they started deep dives, but my daughter got some really great photos. All-in-all, it was a wonderful trip, and I highly recommend it. We'll be back for grey whale season.

hotter than heck but the fish were biting. Everysingle fish I caught had to be thrown back because they were 11 inches. Ilove being on the boat out on the ocean even though I did not bring home anything this time. Everyone is helpful.

Evening whale watch tour...saw thousands of dolphins, then TWO Blue Whales. Spent an hour with the whales...saw them up close, and could hear the sound of their blowing...a sound you will never forget...like a call from some prehistoric past. Too beautiful to describe...you have to do it yourself...highly recommend it.

The Dana Point Whale Watching cruise was the best adventure we have experienced in a long while. The captain and crew were outstanding and they knew where to go to see outstanding sea life. Great adventure for everyone.

This was my grandsons (11) first deep sea fishing trip. He, his other grandmother and I had a great time. The crew was very helpful and the captain tried hard to have us fish at a spot where they were biting.

A passenger Rick, he says he uses your company frequently, was especially helpful for us first timers and fun to talk with.

We would definitely consider your company when doing this again.

Largest Animal on Earth!

This was an excellent whale watching expedition. We also saw a hammerhead shark & a Blue Whale! The 11:00-1:00 time frame was comfortable with not too many people on board or at the dock. The Catamaran was very enjoyable, which allowed us to observe the ocean at various spots on the boat. Observing the Blue Whale as it eats & comes up for air was awesome, a sight to remember. The skipper was knowledgeable & helpful in spotting the whale, which made it a successful trip.

The talk by the naturalist was very helpful. The staff was friendly and helpful. We saw several sightings of blue whale and saw one of them surface repeatedly--it was spectacular! The dolphins were fun as the moms and babies lept out of the water together around the boat. We would do it again!
