Our Gray Whale Safari

December through April

Join us during the winter and spring for an exciting 2 and 1/2 hour fun-filled Gray Whale Safari! Orange County whale watchers see gray whales from December through April. Sometimes gray whales are seen as early as November and as late as May. Gray whales are often spotted within just a mile or so of the Orange County shoreline, where they use Dana Point’s headlands as a landmark on their journey. Our whale watching trip will give you the opportunity to see one or more of these rare, endangered, and magnificent animals. Our ultra stable and very comfortable sailing catamaran "Manute'a" has the two exclusive Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing PODs and it is low to the water which gets you closer to the animals. Our safari includes: underwater camera, hydrophone, experienced naturalist presentation and homemade triple fudge brownies. A magical and memorable adventure!

Fare: $59 per adult, $39 per child 3 to 12. Two and under are free.
