“Dolphin and whale watching”

Our fleet of high-tech catamarans can get you up close and personal with magnificent blue whales, gray whales, fin whales, humpback whales, minke whales, orca whales and more plus five species of wild dolphins including mega-pods that can number in herds of up to 10,000 for an educational and incredibly exciting dolphin and whale watching experience. Just a few reasons why we’re so different: Our catamaran sailboat “Manute’a” has the world’s only Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods! See dolphins up close underwater and BE one of the pod! Aboard “Manute’a” you can stay dry in our protected and comfortable cockpit area or venture out on our three ‘Eye-Spy Dolphin Nets’ for a really close encounter! Our new power catamaran “Lily, Whale Research/Rescue Safari” offers luxurious accommodations alongside state-of-the-art dolphin and whale research and rescue equipment. You can contribute to whale and dolphin research! While whale watching on “Lily, Whale Research/Rescue Safari” you’ll enjoy a beautifully appointed cabin, climate-controlled pilothouse, shaded upper sundeck, and spacious bow, and all with cushioned seating. The sundeck and bow both feature rails enclosed with Lexan® glass for wind protection. Our catamarans are never crowded with a maximum of 49 passengers. Captain Dave is THE dolphin and whale pro! His award winning film “Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California” and award winning book “Lily, A Gray Whale’s Odyssey” have drawn people worldwide to Dana Point, California. He spends more time with these animals than anyone we know! Captain Dave and his team have been recognized worldwide for their conservation and whale rescue efforts. Did we mention he’s also a really great guy? You’ll hear the unique languages of the dolphins and whales with our research-quality hydrophone. Your friends and family can watch you LIVE on our whale watching boat from our website. We are a real eco-tourism company. We have never offered fishing trips and don’t do whale watching on a fishing boat. And last, but not least, Mrs. Capt. Dave’s famous triple fudge brownies are served as a special treat on the ride back to the harbor!
