The day we went we did not see any whales and saw 5 dolphins from a distance. Because of this we were given free passes to do another tour any time in the future. The captain was well informed and able to describe the dophins etc. We would do this tour again.

This was the second Dana Wharf outing by family members in the past year, and we were again pleased by the service, scenery and pleasant and helpful crew. We will be back again..!!

I recommend Dana Whatf Sportfishing/Whale Watching. Check in with e-tickets is easy. Boats are crew are great. We had perfect weather (Tue 3/8), saw 2 whales. No breach, only flukes, but a couple good pix, friendly folks on board mid-week and 1/2 price Tuesdays--would do it again.

Did not look for whales!

Although advertised as a whale tour, the captain went after dolphins near shore and made no attempt to look for whales. VERY disappointing.

Very good time. Well worth the price.

We saw two grey whales and a few dolphins. Even without that, however, the boat ride itself was worth the price. The day was beautiful, the scenery from the boat was great, and the crew was very good. My wife and I really enjoyed it.

Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching has an excellent boat, captain, and crew for the best whale watching I have ever attended. I have gone out several times from Newport Harbor but Dana Wharf is definitely the BEST!

This is a great trip to do by yourself or with your family. Spacious boat with a full galley. And if you don't see any whales or dolphin, they will give you a refund for another trip on any given day. Great group of guys run the boat and are very knowledgeable about the sea life and the environment. Janet San Clemente
