Cruise the “California Riviera” on Orange County’s Most Luxurious Whale Watching Boat

We’ll depart Dana Point Harbor aboard our 65-foot luxury power catamaran Lily and cruise northward along scenic coastlines of Laguna and Newport. Along the “California Riviera” you’ll have views of pristine beaches, unique architecture, and hidden coves, some of which can only be seen by boat. Upon arrival at Newport we’ll give you a brief tour of the harbor. This is a great time to enjoy your delicious lunch! After leaving Newport Harbor we’ll cruise back down the coast, again looking for more dolphins, whales, and other marine life.
