    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.
