    Panda Hot Air Balloon Sunset Flight for 2 (Del Mar)

    (10)
    Fond of getting your head in the clouds? Treat yourself to a true flight of fancy during a sunset balloon trip over Del Mar, California! You'll enjoy incredible sky-high looks at this affluent beach town, replete with shimmering coastline and million-dollar estates! Adding the scenery, polo fields and canyons abound, along with wildlife such as jackrabbits and deer, forming the backdrop to a journey that you'll find both surreal and inspiring. Taking off near sunset, this romantic voyage is the perfect way to celebrate another successful turning of the Earth, especially as the lights beneath you flick on with the onset of night. You'll be riding in comfort from the intimate confines of a two-passenger basket hoisted in the air by a 7-foot "panda" balloon, making it the perfect experience to share with a significant other. Mid and post-flight champagne toasts are included, and because hot air balloons operate by being lighter than the air around them, you can expect a smooth, gentle flight with no bumps and bounces to spoil the mood! This is one experience that won't let you down!

    Dolphin & Whale Signature Safari (2.5 Hr)

    Feel like you need a little more porpoise in your life? If you answered "No, I want to see whales and dolphins," then this is the sea-faring safari for you! You'll set sail on high-tech catamarans, in search of some of the year-round dolphins and whales famous for populating the waters off of Dana Point. What could you see? December through May the annual migration of Gray Whales between the waters off Alaska and the lagoons of Baja, CA takes place. In the months between May and November Blue Whales, the largest animal on earth, can be seen. And throughout the year Fin Whales, Minke Whales, Humpback Whales, and occasionally Orcas visit. Rare whales that could be seen at any time include Bryde's Whales, Sei Whales, Sperm Whales, Pilot Whales, and False Killer Whales. And playful dolphins, some in mega-pods of up to 10,000, are seen off Dana Point all year round too! Only aboard the catamaran Manute'a can you see dolphins underwater, without getting wet, in our Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods. Capt. Dave's original catamaran DolphinSafari is so close to the water that it's like viewing dolphins and whales from a kayak. Both boats feature our Eye-Spy Dolphin Nets to give you a really up close encounter! Lily, our luxury power catamaran, features cushioned bow seating, upper deck with wind and sun protection, and a beautifully appointed interior. Mrs. Captain Dave's yummy triple fudge brownies are served as a special treat on all trips. Along the way, naturalists will treat you with insights about how these amazing creatures live and play. It's going to be a whale of a good time!

Prior to setting out, you'll be geared up and walked through the basics, making this experience a great way for inexperienced paddlers of all ages to get their feet wet.

Fish, birds, harbor seals, sea lions, and sea turtles will be spotted.
