What is so special about Dana Point and dolphins?

You can see five different species of wild dolphins during our dolphin and whale watching safaris. Dolphins off the California Coast comprise some of the largest dolphin herds in the world, including mega-pods of up to 10,000! We have more wild dolphins in our area than anywhere else in the world!

Whales and dolphins are related!

Dolphin belongs to the group of marine mammals that includes whales, dolphins and porpoises. Together, they are called cetaceans (cet– AY– shuns). The bottlenose dolphin for example is a small, toothed whale that belongs to the Delphinidae family. There are at least 31 species in this family. Among the other toothed whales of the Delphinidae family are pilot whales, common dolphins, spotted dolphins, and orcas, also known as killer whales. Killer whales are the largest dolphin!
