General Info
Whale watch with Capt. Dave's Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari in Dana Point on our high-tech sailing catamaran year round, with two Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods. For 20 years Captain Dave's has provided daily trips to see dolphins, up to 10,000 strong, leap and play right off our bow, plus Gray Whales (December through April), Blue Whales (May through November), and year round Humpback Whales, Fin Whales, Minke Whales, and so much more. Go underwater with whales and dolphins without getting wet during your whale watch in our Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods aboard Manute'a. Listen to dolphins during your whale watching safari with our underwater Hydrophone. Celebrity and certified naturalists make this exciting Dana Point whale watching excursion educational and entertaining too. Mrs. Capt. Dave's famous triple-fudge brownies make this a one-of-a-kind dolphin and whale watching adventure unforgettable. We are a real Eco-tourism company providing only sustainable wildlife viewing.

We'd like to talk to you

Hi shelly887,

I just saw your review and was very saddened by it. It also seemed to be somewhat incorrect. We have two fantastic vessels, and both of them receive the highest of reviews from our customers. Both boats (oneis 35-feet and one is 50-feet) are designed to give yo the most intimate experience you can have withthe wild dolphins and whales. On our boats, you can get so close to the animals you can smell their breath! You also didn't mention the equipment we have on board to help you hear these animals talking or our underwater camera. You didn't say what you saw the day you were out with either and I didn't see your email address in our customer reservations, so it's impossible for me to know when you came with us and be able to contact you. You didn't mention our naturalists, who are not only highly experienced, but even famous, for filmmaking and books. And, last buyt not least, you didn;'t mention my homemade brownies we give to everyone...are you sure you came out with us? If someone is looking for a BIG BOAT, then they should go to Dana Wharf or Davey's locker. Both these companies have larger vessels, designed specifically for fishing, which is their main source of business. Sincerely, Gisele Anderson (aka Mrs. Capt. DAve)

Captain Dave's Dolphin Safari

My family went on this trip in December. It was a great experience. We saw tons of Dolphins (lots of baby dolphins too) and Whales. The staff is very friendly. The boat is great. I highly recommend Capt. Dave.

you will def see TONS of dolphins

Great experience for tourists and locals alike. Saw TONS of dolphins and sea lions. Lots of baby dolphins too - so cute! You also get yummy brownies on the way back to shore. I get motion sickness and I was fine on the trip. The staff was very knowledgable, great experience - would reccommend to anyone.
