Had a wonderful whale watching cruise this morning with Davey’s Locker out of Newport Beach CA.
Davey’s Locker offers some great tours, at great prices.
They have a professional photographer on the boat so if you miss the memorable “perfect shot”, they captured it for you! While he is taking photos, he is telling you all about the specific whales, dolphins etc. that you see along the way. We booked the morning cruise and I was so glad we did because it got super crowded in the afternoon.
We saw seven flukes on our trip and too many dolphins to count, the captain took his time so as not to frighten the majestic creatures and deftly manuevered to make sure everyone on the boat got to see the whales.
When a bunch of dolphins showed up, the captain sped up to show how the dolphins play in the wake…such a wonderful experience I highly recommend Davey’s Locker.
The kids had a great time, although we did tell them we were ‘dolphin watching’ so they wouldn’t be dissociated if no whales were spotted. We also took the Balboa Island ferry across, which was a nice little surprise for the kids. Too see all the photographs we took that day, click here. Any questions or comments, just let us know!
