O que você fará

I offer a safe, fast, and fun, dolphin & whale watching experience on rigid hull inflatable (zodiac-style) boats with me or one of my team. This smile-plastered-to-your-face tour is perfect for adventurous visitors seeking an intimate look at Dana Point's year-round whales, dolphins, and other mesmerizing marine life.

I'm an official dolphin & whale cruise provider in Dana Point, the Dolphin and Whale Watching Capital of the World®! You can get incredibly close and within arm’s reach of mega-pods of wild dolphins up to 10,000 strong, Blue Whales, (May - Oct), Gray Whales (Nov – May), plus year-round Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Minke Whales, sea lions, sharks, and more. Rare sightings include orcas, pilot whales, and more. Reaching speeds of 30 knots or faster, you’ll spend less time looking for animals and more time enjoying them! Additionally, you'll enjoy Dana Point's scenic coastline, described as “the most romantic spot on the California coast.”

My upscale zodiacs are comfortable with features like heavily padded seats with seatbacks and a large sunshade. The boat’s very low center of gravity offers passengers a higher level of stability. Boats are U.S. Coast Guard inspected and certified for safety. Have a GoPro? Bring it! The boat is VERY close to the water’s surface and is perfect for capturing that Instagram-worthy underwater shot. Join me, and BE one of the pod!
Other things to note
Due to the fun but fast & bumpy ride, you should be in good overall health for this trip. You can bring a GoPro or camera, but be aware of possible ocean spray. Stuff to bring: sunblock, hat, jacket.

I am a Coast Guard licensed captain, and for over 20 years I've had the privilege of taking passengers out to see the magnificent whales and huge pods of dolphins that live year-round off the coast of Southern California. When I’m not on the water showing passengers amazing sea life, I’m actively involved with whale disentanglement. I'm also an award winning filmmaker and author.

Onde você estará

We depart from beautiful Dana Point Harbor, a small marina with quick access to the open ocean. Dana Point is conveniently located mid-way between Los Angeles and San Diego, just a few minutes from Laguna Beach, and only 33 miles from Disneyland. It's not uncommon to see playful dolphins or jumping whales right outside the harbor! The direction we go will depend upon the wildlife. Usually, we only need to go 3 to 5 miles offshore.

The Zodiac Crazy Cat experience is NOT for anyone with neck or back issues or disabilities. The fast speed and constant hitting the surf was painful and hard at the high speeds. We were in the front of the craft and quite miserable. Take the bigger boat to see if the experience is easier.

This experience was amazing. We saw 12 whales and hundreds of dolphins. It was something like I have never experienced, we were extremely lucky. Everyone was so nice and knowledgable.

My husband and I really enjoyed the experience. It was cool how our captain had constant communication with other counterparts out at see helping to share locations of whales and dolphins.

Great experience. Fantastic scenery and Marie was very knowledgeable. Went out of her way and stayed out at sea for longer than out allotted time to find a whale, which we spotted in addition to dolphins and sea lions.

Great on a weekday to avoid large groups and lets you press the reset button and escape normal stresses that life brings. The experience is still great even if you go by yourself

It was such a wonderful experience. I never saw that many Daphnes before. It is really amazing. Dave’s team was great, they know what they are doing, they even has photographer on board and I bought a great picture from them. Highly recommend.
