Why Gift an Experience?

What if you could give something far more memorable, that will make more of a lasting impression, than a pair of snazzy socks or a box of chocolates? Give your loved ones something that science states is far more meaningful than “things”. Studies show that experiences strengthen relationships and also provide more happiness! Read our blog post to learn more.

Give the Most Memorable Gift

Is there anything more memorable than swimming with whales or coming face-to-face with dolphins? Give your family, friends, or even yourself a one-of-a-kind life experience with Capt. Dave’s Dana Point Dolphin and Whale Watching gift cards.

You can easily buy our Dana Point whale watching gift cards online and send them to your recipient by email. Capt. Dave’s online gift cards are available for all of our public cruises, can be used any time during the year, and are redeemable online and over the phone.

Whale or Dolphin Sightings Guaranteed

Dolphins, whales, and other marine wildlife float, freestyle, dive, and dip all day long, every day of the year in Dana Point. It’s common for our guests to see dolphins just five minutes from the Dana Point harbor. Dolphins are excited to see our boats and will come right over to play!

Capt. Dave’s Dana Point safaris locate dolphins and whales 95% of the time throughout the year. Our gift cards guarantee dolphin or whale sightings. If you or the gift’s recipient don’t see any dolphins or whales on the cruise, you/they can come back within a year for a free tour.

Up Close and Personal With Spectacular Marine Mammals

Capt. Dave’s Dana Point whale watching online gift cards can be used for all our public tours. This includes our most popular 2.5-hour Signature Safari, adventurous 2-hour Zodiac Safari, and the annual holiday favorite Dana Point Boat Parade Cruise.

The Signature Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari features our high-tech Manute’a catamaran sailboat. The Manute’a contains underwater eye-to-eye viewing pods. These pods allow guests to swim alongside marine wildlife, without getting wet!

For thrill-seekers that enjoy heart-pumping adventures, Capt. Dave’s gift card recipients can sign up for our Zodiac Safari. This cruise features super-fast boats that allow guests to come face-to-face with the most spectacular marine wildlife in the Pacific Ocean.

Why Gift Experiences Instead of Things

Are you wondering why give your loved one a Dana Point whale watching experience instead of a material gift? Studies have shown that experience gifts produce a stronger emotional response than material items. This makes the recipient happier and improves your relationship.

The awe and excitement of Capt. Dave’s ocean safari triggers intense emotions, making our online gift cards a present your recipient will never forget. Read our “Why Experiences Make the Best Christmas Gifts” blog post to learn why whale watching can be a great gift.
