I was expecting to see some dolphins, and if we were lucky, a blue whale. Instead, we saw no dolphins, and THREE blue whales!!! This trip was well worth the money. I took my fiance and we had a great time. Make sure you bring a camcorder!

We saw two whales, a school of dolphins and some sea lions during this cruise. The staff was friendly and tries their best to let us have the best views. Wonderful experience and highly recommend if you are looking for something to do in OC.

We had a wonderful evening--Fate smiled on us in more than one way: lovely warm weather AND (according to the captain) one of the best two days of the year for dolphin sightings. We say LITERALLY thousands of common dolphins, often as far as the...continued

We had a GREAT time. We saw two separate huge pads of dolpins who swam on both sides of the boat. The people running the ship were very helpful and knowledgeable.

Best whale watching trip I've been on! Narration was very informative and the whales were close. Just wish seating options had been better on the Clemente.

Best time ever! Saw amazing number of blue whales up close. And dolphins. The 2 hours flew by. The boat was very clean and there was room enough to spread out a bit even though we had lots of passengers.

I love going whale watching through Dana Wharf. I have been on other tours in San Diego and they just don't seem to have the professionalism or the wildlife that they do in Dana Point. The staff is always great and Dana Point is just beautiful....continued
