OCean Adventure's fleet of sea-exploring catamarans whisks away maritime explorers on sight-studded excursions along the Dana Point Headlands, Doheny Beach, and the Orange County coastline. During 90-minute Sunset Harbor and Beyond cruises, tour-goers enjoy the eco-friendly catamaran's smooth, quiet ride as they drift by local landscapes. An enclosed cabin provides unrestricted views of ocean waves while flat-screen monitors display any seafloor treasures or seaweed afghans that float by the ship's underwater cameras. As the ship churns along, powered by its salt-water fuel, boat-farers enjoy salt-licked breezes on the vessel's sun bench or can imbibe libations from the full-service bar.
Tours depart from Dana Wharf Fridays and Sundays (and soon Thursdays as well) at 6 p.m. and return to dock at 7:30 p.m. Cruisers must arrive 20 minutes before the trip departs and are free to bring protective items such as sunscreen, sunglasses, and scarves to block cool tailwinds produced by weather patterns and globe-traversing superheroes.

During private charters and public tours, up to 49 people can see the sights from the enclosed cabin or take photos with famous pelicans in open viewing areas. The catamaran is also outfitted with many onboard creature comfort, welcoming guests to peruse a deli-style galley stocked with purchasable snacks and cocktails mixed from a full bar. No matter the occasion for the trip, the vessel leaves waters as clear as it found them; designed for a low impact on the environment, its engine produces less sound and 75% fewer emissions than conventional engines.
