To be on the water on a beautiful September day is all I need, but the icing on the cake is being in the middle of hundreds of happy, playful dolphins miles out in the ocean. The tour guide is terrific and the customer service of OC Adventures is top notch. If you don't see any sea life on your trip they give you a re-ride ticket for another adventure. Couldn't ask for more.

I recommend this trip for people who want to see hundreds of dolphins swimming around the ship. You feel the wonderful energy. We also saw an ocean sun fish. So wonderful!

I was drenched head to toe, got up and my seat was taken by someone else. I was stumbling all over the ship until someone finally offered me there spot. I was given an overpriced orange juice with no lid that spilled out of my cup. My phone was completely destroyed and when I pointed out my concerns, all I got was the bill for my drinks. Now I had to pay for a new phone and wasted money on a bad ocean experience, with no whales at all by the way

Me and my friend Arlene are from Las Cruces, NM. We booked our vacation in Oceanside and San Diego. The Whale Watching Tour was the highlight of our vacation. We really appreciated the friendliness and professionalism of the staff from JESSICA, CHRIS, KAETLYN. and KERA, all great people and our new friends. Thank you to all of you
