Every thing was good. Got good discount 40% used it too book smoothly on line. Saved 100$ on 5 tickets. The check in was simple. Parking available. The voyage was very nice. Saw dolphins and 5 whales. It was not crowded and the crew did their best to follow them. We really enjoyed it. Coming from central Saudi Arabia their was a lot to savior. Really worth the trip and good value fir money.

This was a short excursion on our way from San Jose to Tucson to take my youngest daughter to college, UA. We were joined by my other daughter, age 21. I cannot tell you how refreshing and exciting this was for all of us. Thank you for a lovely tour.

A sea worthy experience!

Hubby and I decided to do this for our 40th anniversary after visiting nearby San Clemente. The check in staff were very helpful, even holding my flowers for us while we were on the catamaran. The crew was honest telling us that they would look for whales, but that nature prevailed and we may not see then, We knew that before hand. Getting to see the dolphins swim along side us and jumping around us was cool. The staff pointed out the 2 type of dolphins we saw. We stayed at the front of the catamaran the whole time enjoying the scene and ocean spray. We hope to go again in the future.

Great Experience at Dana Whart

Loved everything about this whale watching adventure. The captain and crew do a great job of both educating and entertaining as you sail about the area. We were fortunate enough to see a Blue Whale- the rarest to see and biggest on earth! The ship was clean, lots of room to view and great snack/drink service on board. Highly recommend this adventure!

Best day of my Vacation

My daughter and I took this sea jaunt to see dolphins. The ride was very relaxing, even without the addition of the dolphins and sea-lions , this was a very enjoyable tour for me. I would recommend it to any of my friends visiting San Clemente/ San Diego area.

My wife and I took this trip and really enjoyed it. It was not the time of year for whales but the crew was determined to find a pod of dolphins and did. We had a wonderful 30 minutes or so making passes through the fairly large group of dolphins.

The crew was friendly, explained things to us and kept us informed as we went out looking. I'd go again juts for the wonderful afternoon on the water.

Nice boat and crew

Did not see any whales but plenty of dolphins, if staying at the Dana Point Marriot, it's a five minute walk to the Dana Point Wharf, highly recommend that you go there, plenty of restaurants and must eat at RJ Cafe

This was our third time whale watching. We did not see any whales and not as many dolphin as usual BUT they gave us our ticket back to come another time which I thought was great. Staff was wonderful and the boat ride was worth it too.

poor attempt at finding wahles
Sat, Aug 2, 14   12:00 PM DanielGladys Male 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
They didn't try to find whales outside of the standard, routine route; deck hand acted as if he was doing us a favor for selling us beverages. Been on other whale watching tours that went out of the way to find whale for us to see; we were lucky if we saw 20 dolphins on this tour and the Captain kept circling the same dolphin pod. Unfortunately, everyone wanted to see whales - not dolphins. It was if the Captain expected the whales to come to us. This was not a good outing. definitely will not recommend it to anyone.

Blue Whales!

The boat was clean, the trip to the whales enjoyable... the whales, stunning. All in all, it was a great trip, if only I could have reached out and touched the whales that we saw.
