Dana Point and the surrounding coastline is home to over 100,000 common dolphin more than anywhere on earth , our area is also knows for the famous Dolphin Stampede. Whales flock to our coast , we see Grays Whales, Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Minke Whales , Blue Whales and also chance encounters with Orca and sharks.

Hey so this was a great experience !! Seen a load of dolphins and the so cal area is beautiful. Theres a place on the boat to purchase snacks and drinks. The price beats all the others in the area, and its a bigger boat, so if u get sea sick easily, this is easier on your stomach, and its more comfortable because there is space, and you can socially distance.. i would recommend this to anyone!

Amazing experience. We had an extra windy day so only stayed out for an hour, which they compensated us with tickets to come back, but it was still worth more than we paid! Awesome staff and so much fun.

We had such a great time! We decided to take our son whale watching for his birthday as he LOVES ocean animals. We saw Gray and Humpback whales, as well as dolphins, seals and sea lions! The staff was so amazing! They were very knowledgeable about the animals and spoiled our son after they heard it was his birthday. We hope to come back again!

It was our anniversary and we had an amazing time as it was our first time watching dolphins in their natural habitat. They were literally playing and racing with the cruise. We saw around 1000s of dolphins jumping around. Made our day.
