    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.

    California Beach Cities Day Trip

    (6)
    Get a taste of the famously laid-back, Southern California lifestyle on this tour of the West Coast's most famous beachside attractions! First, you'll head to Huntington Beach, the so-called "Surf City" made popular by the Beach Boys. See surfers paddling in the ocean, and take in some beach volleyball action. Wriggle your toes in the sand before heading north to Long Beach.

    In Long Beach, you'll have a behind-the-scenes tour of one of the most famous ships in the world, the British ocean liner RMS Queen Mary. This legendary cruise ship made its last voyage in 1967, and now it serves as a monument to the days of transatlantic pleasure cruises. See the restored sections of the ship such as her bridge, the aft, machine rooms and much more!

    After you've seen the Queen Mary's elegant facilities, you'll travel to one of the most famously eclectic and eccentric stretches of coast in the world, Venice Beach. In Venice, you'll see street performers, bazaar merchants, muscle-bound weightlifters, and skateboarders, all of whom contribute to Venice Beach's signature vibe. After you've seen Venice's wonderful weirdness, you'll head to the Santa Monica Pier, where you can dine, people watch, or ride the thrilling coasters and Ferris wheel at Pacific Park.

    Your trip concludes at the Third Street Promenade, a popular beach-friendly, pedestrian-only boulevard. Dust off the sand and shop to your heart's content before returning to your air-conditioned coach to Los Angeles.
