Now for the first time ever, you can see a side of California that few have ever seen.
Captain Dave Anderson spent five years producing, filming and narrating this award-winning 64-minute film, Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California, while conducting his Dolphin and Whale Safari expeditions from Dana Point, California. Dave filmed these mammals from the air and under the sea within a few miles off shore.
Also included is footage from the Channel Islands, Monterey, Santa Barbara and Baja California. The spectacular "never-before-seen" footage includes:
Dolphin herds numbering in the thousands, including Common Dolphins, Bottlenose,
Risso's, Pacific Whitesided, and the Northern Right Whale Dolphin
The elusive Blue Whale, Killer, Sperm, Grey, Minke, Humpback and Fin Whales.
Southern California hosts the largest dolphin population in the U.S. and more Blue Whales than anywhere in the world.
Whether petting friendly Gray Whales, following alongside 5,000 Common Dolphins or having a 75-foot Blue Whale head directly toward you, learning about these animals has never been more exciting as Captain Dave narrates this unforgettable "best of" safari to the wilds of Southern California.
Wild Dolphins & Whales of Southern California will change your perception of the ocean and its inhabitants forever.
A beautiful, fascinating and informative look at the incredible dolphin and whale life off the Southern California coast." - David Sheehan - Hollywood Close-Ups

"I have sailed with Captain Dave on two previous occasions, and I wanted to take my entire family, kids and grandkids, on a special adventure this summer. As part of my gift to them, I purchased copies of the DVD for each of my families to help them prepare for this trip. It is an amazing film, with views of our friendly sea animals that are not usually seen. I highly recommend it, not only for fun, for a great learning experience. Go Captain Dave!"

"This video provides a unique and fun perspective of whales and dolphins off the coast of Southern California. Few people realize the wealth of amazing wildlife that is in these waters, including the largest of all known animals ever on the earth, the blue whale. Captain Dave's narration shows his love for the animals, and he adds simple scientific facts to help us understand them. I went blue whale watching on his boat after seeing this video, and on the trip we saw five blue whales as well as a pod of countless numbers of dolphins."

"This wonderful DVD shows a greater number and variety of whales than any other video I have ever seen, and sticks to whale-watching without sidebars or cut-aways. It is professionally produced and not hand-held home movies. The video is amazing! It is also more personal and educational than many videos, and I appreciate that the narrative is done while viewing the whales, without cutting away to animation or extended science lessons. Captain Dave and crew clearly love their subject matter, and marvel at them along with us!"
