This was better than expected. First, the logistics were easy, including parking and ticket pick up. The boat was in great condition; the crew were professional and friendly.

They also seemed to know just what to do, as they found a pod of...continued

We were very lucky. We didn't see any dolphins, but we saw a grey whale that waved bye to us 3 times w/ his tail!

No whales just now, they are late coming down from Alaska! We saw lots of dolphins. The captain was very good about pointing out things of interest to us.

We had a fantastic time. Once we got out into open water, the captain informed us that another boat had a whale out at San Onofre. So, we flew out there and spent the next hour following a 4-5 year old grey whale. It was pretty amazing. The...continued

This was a lovely boat ride. Personnel were informative and accommodating. Ship was very comfortable. We saw a huge pod of dolphins of a variety I had not seen before and it was great being surrounded by them! We even saw an albino dolphin! ...continued

3.5 stars; recommended. We saw a LOT of playful dolphins, and very close up. A nice day out on the water, too. They made sure we were comfortable and there was plenty of educational materials to read (and play with!) for all.

Very organized and easy process to find and board boat. Staff are very knowledgeable and did a great job on giving information about whales. We saw five on our trip and it was a great tour.

Beautiful day to be out on the ocean looking for whales. We were fortunate enough to find and escort a grey whale as he surfaced and dove his way south along the beautiful Orange County coast. There were several sightings of dolphins and seals...continued

We saw lots of bottlenose dolphins and seal lions, but NO WHALES IN SIGHT. I guess you are better off going to Sea World, at least, they are guaranteed.

Although we didn't see any whales we saw a 'mega-pod' of dolphins which was amazing. I have been to Hawaii, Mexico, British Columbia, and the Caribbean and seen dolphins and whales many times, but I have never seen so many at one time! There...continued

WE took our granddaughter and she love it. It was her first boat ride. We got to follow alongside a huge adult grey whale, for a mile or so. He just kept coming up all along the route and "fluked" many times. And, to top the trip off, we circle a...continued

The boat was getting ready to turn around and return to the dock, when we finally sighted a blue whale and later on 3 dolphins!
I am glad we got to see something because we had with us our 7 year old grandson and he was beginning to get very...continued
