Photos: Sightseeing Laguna Beach by Boat with a Historical Twist
Mixing ocean sightseeing with history and architecture and, perhaps, some whales, has proved to be a fun day activity in Orange County. Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching has partnered with the Laguna Beach Historical Society for thee-hour Saturday catamaran cruises that launch from Dana Point, and quickly heading north to Crystal Cove State Beach, before slowly moving down the coast with discussions about the famous area's film history and architecture.
