Beautiful day on the ocean!

We had a great time! We brought sack lunches and sat at the tables on the top deck...thought we'd have a great view of the whales and dolphins, but the captain always kept the ship pointed at them, so we had to strain to see through the captain's windows. I'd recommend getting a spot in the front of the boat if you want the best views. I heard several people down there complain that they couldn't see over everyone else, so be sure to secure a spot on the railing. We saw 4 grey whales and a huge pod of dolphins. The captain was able to entice the dolphins to play, and they surfed in the ship's wake...sailing through the air, jumping and flopping on their sides. It was definitely the highlight of the afternoon!

I have lived in Orange County for more than two years, and I wish that I had done this before. My cousin and grandmother came to visit from out of state, and I booked the the tour/cruise for the three of us. The weather was beautiful, the view of Dana Point from the ocean looked like a painting, and the dolphins and whales did not disappoint. We saw 4-6 gray whales and a huge pod of common dolphins. The crew/staff were very friendly and knowledgable. Also, the cruise does not interfere with the animals travel patterns or harass nature just for a photo-op.

Great Southern California Experience ! ! ! ! ! !

I've lived in So Cal all my life and have never gone on a Whale Watching cruise before. My boyfriend's parents were visiting from Indiana and have always wanted to go.

What a great and fun experience. It was the perfect length of time (2 hours) and a great bargin to boot.

My favorite part was encountering a school of dophins that swam right up to the boat.

I highly recommend this trip to locals and visitors alike.

don't forget the dramamine!

we followed 2 whales, which was really cool. and we saw a bunch of dolphins. i didn't like how the boat was right on top of the dolphins, literally. they claim it doesn't hurt them, but it didn't seem right to do it. other than that, the crew was professional. my only problem was i didn't take dramamine early enough and got seriously sea sick! anyone prone to motion sickness, be sure to take something well before hand. my husband had a great time while i was nauseous for 2 hours!!

Slow fishing day

We could not find any fish in that big blue ocean. The fish were not biting for us. We tried several spot according to the captian's fish finder but to no avail.

Good Cruise no whales
Tue, Mar 18, 08   2:00 PM JSROBERTTHIB Female 60-69 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We enjoyed the cruise as it was a beautiful day. We were disappointed that we

did not see any whales but we did see seals and dolphins. We feel we might have

been better to take a morning cruise rather than the 2 p.m. cruise. The company was

very generous in allowing people to stay on board for a second cruise to see if that

cruise would see any whales. Earlier cruises that day saw whales.

Our group consisted of my parents and my aunt, from San Antonio, TX, and I, I currently live in Mission Viejo, CA. We were hoping to see a whale. Were very excited because we saw several whales and I got a great picture of one whale tail flipping out of the water. We have raved to everyone.

We really enjoyed the day. We saw at least two whales; one of them multiple times. We did not see much of the whale, just his back as he occasionally rolled out of the water, but this is normal from what I have heard. Other families on the boat indicated they had seen far fewer whales on similar trips. The captain giving the voice over was entertaining and the crew was friendly.
