Whales routinely migrate along the coast of California, and Dana Point is one of the great places to head out and get a glimpse of the various species making their way along the coastline. December through April is the best time to see the whales, although May through November provides views of Blue Whales. Guests will also spot dolphins, seals and sharks. Captain Dave’s charters take up to 49 people on seasonal adventures aboard a catamaran. Tours are 2.5 hours in length. The boat offers sandwiches, snacks and beverages. Children of all ages are welcome, although the staff finds children under 3 to become more restless and bored on the tours.
