So Much fun‼️

We had a magical day. No whales, wrong season, but countless dolphins both common and bottlenose. They surfed the wake and launched themselves like 10 feet in the air. Who needs Seaworld⁉️

Loved the whole experience of Dana point whale watching! The staff that handled our tickets as well as the staff on the boat were friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was a good size and there was a section for food and drinks to buy. We saw an amazing amount of dolphins. They were beautiful. We also saw ocean sunfish, and sea lions. I wish we had seen a whale but we didn’t. But overall good fun!

From booking to arrival to finish a great experience I highly recommended booking a trip. We were fortunate to see the magnificent Blue Whale, which of course, made it extra extraordinary. Chase was an efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly captain, clearly passionate about his job, and the Naturalist on board was expertise in her knowledge and enthusiasm! Thank you for a day of a lifetime. We will cherish it.
