Kids go free on Dana Point whale-watching tours in December

Dana Wharf Sportfishing & Whale Watching based in Dana Point Harbor offers some relief from the holiday stress: free whale-watching  tickets for children with a paying adult.

The offer is good through December when gray whales start to pass along Southern California’s coast during their extraordinary 10,000-mile migration from the Bering Sea to Baja, Mexico, and back.

The deal: The holidays are crowded with parties and events, but whale-watching might make for a nice family break — before or after Christmas. For each adult ticket purchased, two children up to 12 go free.

Adult tickets for a two-hour tour cost $45. With this deal, you save $29 each on children’s tickets. You may book online or by calling.

When: The deal runs through Dec. 31.

Details: One thing about whale-watching: Don’t fixate on whales. Check out the spectacular views as well as sea lions, dolphins and sea birds.
