Delightful Dolphins, Whimsical Whales, and Wonderful Wildlife
With nearly seventy different wildlife species in the Dana Point area, whale watching near Los Angeles gives visitors a chance to say “hello” to at least five different species of dolphins—including long and short-beaked common dolphins, bottlenose, Pacific white-sided, and Risso’s dolphins.
And since Dana Point is the Dolphin and Whale Watching Capital of the World®, one may also encounter over ten different types of whales—including humpback, fin, minke, sperm, pilot, and the famous killer whale (which is technically a dolphin!)
Other local wildlife species sighted on our Dana Point whale watching tours include sea lions, seals, sharks, and a slew of beautiful pelagic birds. No mermaids sighted just yet, although we have heard rumors that a dolphin stampede bears an uncanny resemblance to the elusive sea creatures! You never know what you’ll see!

Things to Bring on Your Whale Watching Cruise
As you get ready for your Dana Point harbor whale watching cruise, it’s important to remember a few sea-worthy must-haves. Even though you’re whale watching near Los Angeles, it can still get chilly on the water. Important items to remember include:
- A Snap-Ready Camera: The wonderful wildlife and spectacular scenery of Dana Point’s coastline will be sure to make you glad that you remembered your camera.
- A Sweater or Jacket: While it may be a beautiful and bright sunny day, out there on the water temperatures can drop about 10 to 15 degrees. This will have you craving the comfort of a sweater and or jacket to layer up with!
- Slip, Slop, Slap: During cooler weather, your Dana Point whale watching excursion may have you bundled up but the sun will still be shining brightly! So make a note to invite your bottle of sunscreen along as we’d hate to have you return looking like a lovely lobster with a red face.
- A Pair of Sea-Worthy Binoculars: Binoculars are also welcome to tag along with you during your excursion, as they may help you spot that spout in the distance.
