Qué harás

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 trip is perfect for adventurous guests ages six and older who seek an intimate look at Dana Point's year-round whales, dolphins, and other mesmerizing marine life.

I'm a licensed dolphin & whale cruise provider in Dana Point, the Dolphin and Whale Watching Capital of the World®, and a certified Whale Heritage Site. You could get within arm’s reach of wildlife such as mega-pods of wild dolphins up to 10,000 strong, blue whales, gray whales, humpback whales, fin whales, sea lions, sharks, and more. Dana Point made famous the dolphin stampede!

My comfortable, upscale zodiacs feature heavily padded seats with seatbacks and a large sunshade. Reaching speeds of 30 knots or faster, you’ll spend less time looking for animals and more time enjoying them.

Your experience may have up to 20 guests onboard.

U.S.C.G. inspected and certified for safety. Have a GoPro? Bring it! You'll be VERY close to the water’s surface!

Join me to take a deeper dive into the lives of whales and dolphins, learn what threats they face, and BE one of the pod!

Important notes:
Due to the fun, but fast and bouncy ride, you should be in good overall health. Be aware of possible ocean spray when bringing electronics or other valuables.

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. I'm a certified Responsible Whale Watching partner with the World Cetacean Alliance. When I’m not on the water showing passengers amazing sea life, I’m actively involved with whale disentanglement. I founded and organized Orange County's first whale rescue group. I'm also an award-winning filmmaker and author who has been featured on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Today Show, CBS This Morning, Good Morning America, Discovery Channel, and National Geographic, and have had my film footage in theatrical films including in the Academy Award nominated film, Racing Extinction.

Dónde estarás

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.

Gary and Jess were AMAZING!! we didn’t see any whales sadly, but we did get to see a pod of dolphins! We had a blast and I will definitely come again when I’m back in Cali. Loved this trip!!!!

Was a beautiful morning out of the ocean! The captain and his assistant did a great job continuing to locate dolphins, whales, etc. After some time (and it was certainly ok as we enjoyed the boat ride out in the ocean, they located a large group of common dolphins! Sooooooo exciting to see and so very close to our boat! And… the baby dolphins were so sweet and the highlight! We also were able to see sea lions as well. Only wish we could have seen whales but I understand that is nature! Would recommend …. GO!!!!

Awesome experience! Captain Marie and Stacy were really awesome and informative. We got to see a couple large pods of Common & Bottlenose dolphins! No whales but nature can be unpredictable! Would definitely recommend and would love to do it again!

AMAZING!!!!!! Unforgettable experience. Saw so many dolphins! You could get on the bow and see the dolphins swimming under the front of the boat 😍😍😍 We saw bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins! Patches is a rare bottlenose and glows under the water ❤️ Ah! Had such a great time! Thank you Capt. Marie and Jenelle!!! They were so nice, informative, and even had brownies for everyone at the end 😄

Great experience. Well executed and in time. Still gave the experience 4 stars as we were expecting it to be a 6-person boat (as mentioned in the Airbnb experience) but it was really a 15 person boat.
