The trip was wonderful. We had whales all around us. We saw at least 7 blue whales coming up and going under several times. We saw 2 schools of dolphins. They were knowledgeable and informative.

2 hour boat ride along the coast past san onofre. we saw seal lions and 2 types of dolphins, no whales. like others stated, they were informative. would be more inclined to recommend this to families, rather than a date.

Although we didn't see any whales (which seems to always be the case with the whale watching tours), the crew went out of their way to make sure we saw other wildlife such as dolphins, sea lions and pelicans.

I went whale watching twice before and never saw anything on other whale watching excursions, at Dana Pointe we saw many whales and dolphins. The experience was amazing. Overall it was a nice relaxing day.

This was BETTER than I anticipated. I thought it was a typical harbor cruise. It turned out to be a whale watching cruise. We saw dolphins, seals and 2 blue whales. It was breathtaking. I LOVED the cruise and intend to go again, soon.

Unfortunately it was a very foggy day and we did not see anything. HOWEVER, they were very gracious to offer everyone on board a raincheck to come back another day. I was impressed by this as they certainly did not have to do that! The staff...continued
