Duration: 2 hours 30 minutes
Safety measures applied
Do this because
  • Hop aboard a catamaran and keep a lookout for whales, dolphins, and other sea creatures
  • Enjoy engaging commentary from knowledgeable marine naturalists along with your safari

What to expect

Experience an up-close and personal connection with huge herds of wild dolphins, whales, sea lions, and much more aboard a memorable whale-watching excursion!

Meet your group at Dana Point Harbor, at the location next to Baby Beach and the OC Sailing and Event Center. Board one of three catamarans - either Manute’a, DolphinSafari, or Lily - and get ready to spot sea lions, marine birds, dolphins, whales, and sometimes sharks. Some whales you might see on your journey include Blue Whales, Gray Whales, Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Minke Whales, and occasionally Orcas (Killer Whales). Also, keep in mind there are five species of wild dolphins that might cross your path, too. As you cruise, enjoy commentary from a naturalist who fills you in on the sea creatures, their lifestyles, their natural habitats, and what’s being done to protect them. If you’d like, you can head down to the underwater viewing pods on your catamaran to catch sight of ocean life from an underwater vantage point.

After your adventure, your boat docks back at the harbor and you’re sent on your way with a complimentary triple-fudge brownie.
