Captain Dave’s Dana Point Dolphin Watching Tour has been mesmerizing people for decades, and DolphinSafari is the boat that started it all. Our 35-foot sailing catamaran is the original pride of our fleet and remains a favorite among our crew and passengers.
This prized safari catamaran whale watching vessel was the first in Southern California to offer year-round dolphin watching. It was also aboard this catamaran that Captain Dave filmed his award-winning documentary, “Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California.”

Book Our Catamaran Whale Watching Tours for an Intimate Whale Watching Experience
With a comfortable capacity of about 20 passengers, DolphinSafari makes our whale and dolphin watching tours an intimate experience for the whole family, while still providing plenty of room for everyone.
Her specially designed bow with eye-spy dolphin nets is so close to the water that you’ll feel as though you can touch the animals! You’ll even be close enough to hear the dolphins vocalize as they swim right under your feet. It’s almost like being in a kayak! This boat has comfortable seating in the enclosed cockpit and a restroom.
Please note: DolphinSafari is not equipped with Eye-to-Eye Underwater Viewing Pods. That feature is only available on Capt. Dave’s Dolphin Safari flagship vessel, Manute’a.
