Disappointing
Sun, May 9, 10   2:00 PM Bondgrrrl Female 40-49 Local Family Without Children
I went on the Spirit of Dana Point site and thought I was buying tickets for that and found out it was for a much different boat thru Dana Wharf. I specifically wanted Spirit of Dana Point. Somehow I got redirected to your site unknowingly, we arrived at the dock and were very disappointed.

Also, Mother's Day at 2pm the sea was extremely choppy and the sky was stormy, we all felt sea sick even after taking Dramamine, and couldn't wait to get back to shore. It was a very long 2 hours, and we've sailed before and were never disappointed.

Wish we could get a credit or refund somehow, both for the stormy day and the wrong boat.

Thank you,

Marlena

Boat was clean. The crew was on top of things and answered all my questions. They worked hard and earned a good tip.

I highly recommend them.

Thanks for a great day.

We didn't see any whales (which we were warned we might not because it was in between seasons) but we did see a ton of dolphins and it was a really nice day on the water.

The whale watching experience was very enjoyable. We didn't see any whales that day. But the weather was perfect, a beautiful day to be out on the ocean. We did see hundreds of dolphins. It was very exciting to see so many of them. The captain was very knowledge about the dolphins. I had a great time, I would do the trip again.

Really enjoyed the boat ride. We didn't get to see any whales, but we did see lots of dolphins, sea lions and interesting ocean birds. Captain Jack provided lots of information about the dolphins and sea lions we saw. A very enjoyable 2-hour trip!

Slow Fishing and Crowded
Sun, Apr 18, 10   12:45 PM rynousa Male 30-39 Local Family Without Children
Fishing was slow and lots of people on the boat. Too many kids. Parents just let their kids run wild. I have done this trip many times in the past with great success, but this time was probably the worst.

We loved the cruise
Thu, Apr 15, 10   12:00 PM lindam1228 Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
We had a blast. The captain was very good at getting the views of the sea life, dolphins-two types, and of course the mother whale and calf. The information he supplied was informative. The crew was great with the information and safety tips given. He had us all laughing. A thoroughly enjoyable trip.

The trip was a little over two hours and we got to see about thirty common dolphins and a half a dozen sea lions. It was a lot of fun and the staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. I would definitely do this again if I didn't get sea sick!!

It was out of your control if there are no whales, you did try to find some for us and we will be back to look for some again soon... Loved seeing the other wildlife and the overall trip and experience. Just can not give you the 5 STARS without seeing the whales.

Thank you !! We DO RECOMMEND this trip to everyone !!!!!!

Dolphins at a Discount
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

Went on the Whale/Dolphin watch cruise Tuesday 4/13. It greatly exceeded our expectations. While we did not see any whales, we did see and enjoy 600-800 dolphins jumping and playing for an extended amount of time. We were on the 12:00 cruise and were delighted with the accomodations and crew. The crew could not have been more knowledgeable and entertaining. The cruise, alone, was worth the money. The added plus of seeing so many dolphins and listening to the crew members was a bonus. When we are in California again, this is a must attraction for us.
