NOTE: The whale watching vessel cruises in the open ocean. Our yacht is the most comfortable yacht in Orange County, due to stabilizers that greatly reduce the yacht's motion. Still, if seasickness is a concern, getting fresh air on the sun deck or taking over-the-counter anti-seasickness medicine prior to your cruise might help. Click here for FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
