If you’ve ever wanted to peek at the hidden homes — and spectacular views — of the rich and famous who cluster along Laguna Beach’s secluded coves and shoreline, now you can.
Dana Wharf Sportfishing is branching out with a new “Laguna Coastline SightSeaing Cruise” that combines a historic perspective of the coast from Crystal Cove to Three Arch Bay with the possibility of seeing some fun-loving dolphins, and maybe even a whale, along the way.
I took the tour Sunday, and before the historic part started, we had the thrill of being in a pod of an estimated 1,000 common dolphins. The dolphins were chasing along side our catamaran, jumping for joy (or just to show off), and swimming between the pontoons. It was like a dolphin festival. I could hear the dolphins breathe right next to me as they surfaced and dove. What fun! The dolphins apparently just love to swim as fast as they can and to “surf” the waves created by the swooshing of the boat through the water. It was a spectacular start to our three-hour tour.
