Whale Watching Anaheim

Did you know that Captain Dave’s Whale Watching offers whale watching tours for Anaheim residents and visitors? America’s favorite mouse with a cheerful song and a smile isn’t the only friendly face you’ll see when visiting Anaheim. That is right! Whale watching near Anaheim means having the opportunity of seeing smiling dolphins ride at the bow of our boats, looking up at passengers with their sweet, built-in smiles. Swimming at top speeds as if racing our boats they are in a race is a humbling sight to see! Being splashed by a dolphin is considered lucky, and with hundreds of dolphins showing off in front of the boat, some may say that you should skip the lines at the city’s top attractions because whale watching Anaheim is the most exhilarating ride in town.
