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.

We had a great time and got to see a huge pod of common dolphins! We learned a lot about marine and life, and we were even assisted with some seasickness (thankful that no one fed the fish!). This experience was of great value; it was a beautiful time on the water! Btw, signing up through AirBnB gave us some extra cool benefits!

We went to this tour in a group of 6, the boat was bigger than expected, the host at the boat was extremely friendly and helpful, the boat was super clean and organized, there was a snack and a drink included but they also have an open bar/snack bar if you want to buy more, the experience itself was just incredibly amazing, after sailing for about 40 min. We (literally) saw HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of dolphins swimming around the boat and even miles away around for about 20 minutes, there is also a very knowledgeable tour guide in the boat but with the excitement of the people watching dolphins she could barey be heard when she was explaining about the dolphins, but I saw her very interested in answering any questions about the tour and dolphin lives. I highly recommend this tour, the harbor is located at Dana Point which is a BEAUTIFUL area with a lot to see around (or a short drive) after you end the tour. We really loved the experience. Thank you so much.

Our family enjoyed the trip. The boat was very clean, comfy and safe. You can purchase reasonably priced hotdogs, quedadillas, drinks and snacks on board. Bring a good jacket, it gets a little cold even on a sunny day. We saw hundreds of dolphins. Great experience. Free parking.

This was an amazing experience! We expected to see dolphins but not as many as we did. There had to be up to 50 dolphins swimming alongside our boat. We also got to see a whale which was super exciting. It followed our boat which was great for up-close pictures. Overall an unbeatable experience, 10/10 recommend. Staff was great too.

We had a great time! If you’re on the fence about booking, just go ahead! We saw so many dolphins we lost count. Beautiful scenery and great value for getting out on the water for a bit.
