Upscale Whale Watching Aboard ORCA

Our ORCA charter is a 38-foot luxury motor yacht available for year-round private yacht rentals. She offers all the amenities for a family or small group of friends to enjoy special occasions on the water, such as 4th of July fireworks, Christmas boat parades, birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, drone flying, and more.

This vessel is excellent for a cruise off the beautiful coast of Dana Point, where you’ll have a chance to get within arm’s reach of wild dolphins and magnificent whales. At the same time, knowledgeable naturalists explain how these animals live. Plus, Mrs. Captain Dave’s yummy triple fudge brownies are served as a special treat!

As a private yacht rental, the ORCA charter features a fast cruising speed, a beautiful interior with ample seating, two staterooms, two bathrooms, and a fully appointed galley. Enjoy panoramic views while comfortably seated in the fully enclosed bridge or the refreshing ocean air on the aft deck. Dana Point whale watching season is year-round, so there’s never a wrong time to book an ocean safari!

This Dana Point private yacht rental is also an excellent choice for television and movie productions looking for a fast yacht with experienced wildlife naturalists. We have hosted many productions, including those from Animal Planet, MTV, Condé Nast, various reality shows, and more. In Dana Point, the whale watching season is ongoing, so capturing breathtaking footage is never a problem!

What Guests Think About Their Private Yacht Rental on ORCA

I can’t begin to tell you what a magical trip this was. Captain Jim was knowledgeable, friendly and a valuable part of our experience. We saw a pod of 1,000 dolphin and perhaps more special, we got to interact with a humpback whale for over 40 minutes. This whale was as curious about us as we were of her! It was sheer magic. My 10 year old daughter and I chartered a private trip on the Orca and I highly recommend it. It was a memory which will last a lifetime. So much gratitude to Jim who shared in the wonder and respect of the marine life and was able to read the ocean so well to steer us so close to wild life without compromising it. I would give more stars if possible and we will absolutely be back to do this again.

A nice morning out with Captain Quinn. Lots of sea life including seals, sea lions, sun fish and Dolphins. Was able to see a California grey whale towards the end. Chartered the Orca for a small outing of 5. Great customer focus, nice boat and a great family outing.

If you want an excellent chance to see marine life and get the shots you need, I recommend chartering ORCA. ORCA was the perfect fit for our film crew of 5… our only issue was where to point the camera because there were too many blue whales. Great boat, great captain, Big blues. THANKS DAVE!
