For Valentine’s Day, I got Kelvin tickets to Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, CA. We’ve been thinking about going whale watching for awhile, and since it is the gray whale’s migration time, I thought it would be a good time to go.
I had been nervous about a storm coming in on the day we were going to be whale watching, but the day cleared up nicely. Unfortunately, since there had been a storm the day before, the ocean wasn’t clear, and the waters were really rough.
We didn’t end up seeing any whales (boo!), but we saw a pod of common dolphins, pelicans feeding on sardines, and sea lions. I’m hoping Kelvin and I can make it out again in August or September to see the blue whales.
Ready to see some sea life before the boat ride in Dana Point Harbor.
The boat ride ended up being really rocky, and a ton of people on the boat got sick.
But Kelvin felt great!

Sea lions hanging out. They were really loud!
Playing with my grandpa’s old rolleiflex. We’ve taken 2 pictures on it at that point.
We stopped at The Secret Spot in Huntington Beach after “whale watching”.
