This was the best thing we did our entire vacation. We went with our 2 sons (16 & 15) and they weren't as excited as I was to do this as I was, but by the end of the tour they agreed that it was the coolest thing we had done. We took an 8am cruise and it was gorgeous.... 更多
The boat ride was fun, educational, with the staff very polite and attentive. Saw 4 whales, but from a distance, so as not to disturb the migrating whales. Overall, highly recommended. Special price on Wednesdays.
Hi Brooke, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your dolphin and whale watching... 更多
Boat came in late because they went further to see wildlife for that group. Meant we got to see grey whales as soon as we left the harbour. Soon after we were in a pod of about 100 dolphins. Interesting to note Dolphins love to see young children and like the colour pink. Later we saw a young humpback whale.... 更多
We saw 6 whales and school of dolphins. It was very exciting riding along with the dolphins. Just riding along on the boat was wonderful and well worth the price. Our two teenagers were also on board and loved the experience. Will definitely return for another safari in the future.
Sadly no whales this time, but lots and lots of dolphins, including a very small and active baby dolphin, probably not the correct term for a juvenile porpoise but hey ho, baby dolphin is good for me. Great trip and you could tell the crew were desperate to find whales but that's the joy of going into the natural habitat,... 更多
During my second safari with this company, I didn't get to see as many whales as on my first time. However, it wasn't for lack of trying on their part. The staff are extremely hospitable, professional, and safety-conscious and the catamaran was in great condition. The parking is plentiful and convenient to the shop and boat. Over two and a... 更多
I had a fantastic experience with Capt. Dave's. They took us out, and as hoped for, we were able to see a fin whale, as well as some gray whales. In addition, we found a pod of dolphins, which began to swim underneath our catamaran, and stayed with us for quite a while. It was an exhilarating adventure! I'd do... 更多
This was at least our third trip with Capt. Dave's Dolphin & Whale Watching Safari. We love this company because of their catamaran boats and crews. Today we went out with Capt Peter and First Mate Mark who are veterans with incredible knowledge and fun natures. We went out on the smaller boat today which turned out to be fabulous... 更多
I drove over from Arizona to spend a few days in Dana Point during the Festival of Whales. I was completely impressed with Captain Dave's from the time I booked my trips. They were helpful with directions, hotel recommendations, restaurant suggestions, and with further information about the Festival of Whales. When booking, what to expect on various boats was thoroughly... 更多
My husband and I went on the 10:00 a.m. trip on Tuesday, March 31st. After looking at all of the whale watching options for our vacation to Dana Point, we chose to go with Capt. Dave's even though another company offers 50% off on Tuesdays. This was definitely the right choice even though it was the most expensive of the... 更多

Our family went on the Dophin and Whale Safari today with Capt. Dave and his crew. We had a wonderful trip, sunny, not too breezy and so much to see! The two who navigated and told us about the area, the wildlife in the area were very professional and totally interested in fun and safety. We saw three grey whales!... 更多
I can't say enough positive things about Capt. Dave's. When I booked our tickets I mentioned that we were there celebrating my boyfriends birthday and when we showed up there was a sign wishing him a happy birthday which I thought was a sweet touch. Once on the boat, we met our captains who were friendly and extremely knowledgable and... 更多
After a friend's recommendation we my family decided to book this tour for our spring break. It was the absolute highlight of our trip! It was a beautiful southern California day on the ocean and we saw gray whales and a pod of about 400 dolphins. The dolphins were leaping out of the water all around us, and swimming with... 更多
