Think you missed the great whale watching of 2016? Think again, because Dana Point is offering a special pre-Mother’s Day Afternoon Sail on Saturday, May 7 from 2-4:30. Raise the sails and even help steer the ship while you take in the gorgeous California coastline. Refreshments will be served, and this incredible deal is just $70 for adults and $50 for children. Sea Star members snag an extra 10 percent off, and ticket prices include same-day admission to the Ocean Institute Education Center.
Register early, because Dana Point cruises often sell out. It’s a bit past peak whale watching season, but it’s still possible a few sightings will occur. Bring your sunscreen, camera, and best nautical attire for an intimate getaway that’s a perfect precursor to mom’s weekend.

Visiting the Ocean Institute is a unique way to meet some of the Anaheim area’s most interesting of residents. It’s a learning experience for all, with day camps for the kids and adult-friendly exhibitions. The Tallship Sails adventure cruises operate year-round, but only on May 7 will a special Mother’s Day brunch be served.
No matter how you celebrate the mom(s) in your life, make it really stand out this year by whisking her away on a sunset cruise.
