To our Capt. Dave’s Family and Friends,

We consider you part of our family and your safety remains our highest priority. We wanted to reach out and share a few of the steps we are taking for you, our customer.

We are in the business of serving people and in the midst of this coronavirus outbreak it’s important that we give you as much flexibility as possible when planning and enjoying your upcoming Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari.

To that end, here is what we have been doing as part our regular procedures to ensure your health and wellness:

We’re so proud of our Capt. Dave’s team and all that they do to deliver amazing experiences. Trust that they will continue to serve you in health-sustaining ways over the next few weeks as we weather this together.

If you have read this far, thank you! We’d like to share some exciting news with you that is also very encouraging. We have purchased a new vessel! A new zodiac-style boat similar to Fast Cat, only bigger (up to 27 passengers) and faster! We think you will LOVE it, we already do! The name of this vessel is AllSwell… or as I like to call it…’Alls Well’… it reminds me of one of my favorite songs written by Horatio Spafford, “It is Well with My Soul” after he lost his children in a tragic accident, yet his faith in God remained strong. As we walk through difficult times it can be a really wonderful opportunity to press into our faith and ask for grace, God’s Divine help in our time of need.

Upgrade to a Private Charter

Our Dana Point private boat rentals offer affordable prices, are operated by our professional crews, and only the guests selected by you are on board.

Private charters give you the opportunity to experience up-close and personal the whales, dolphins, sea lions, and more that can be seen during our Dana Point whale watching excursions.

Special rates are available for private charters on Fast Cat, ORCA, and DolphinSafari, making it affordable for everyone to enjoy the intimate luxury of a private boat charter.

If you have already booked tickets for a public trip, we will apply the cost of your original purchase to the private charter!
