I was disappointed that we didn't see any whales.

I know there isn't a guarantee to see whales, but Dana Point is supposed to be the best at finding whales. Maybe they aren't??? I went on a date & thought it would be perfect. It still was a good date, but would have been much better had we seen whales!

My husband and I took the 2 o'clock excursion to look for whales and dolphins. The view from the boat was phenomenal. The boat crew was very good at giving us information about the dolphins and the whales. We only saw a few whales but we saw lots of dolphins. We also got some really good pictures. I would recommend bringing binoculars to get the best view of the whales. The boat is very comfortable and a good size.

I live in a beautiful Victoria, BC which has it's own fleet of whale watching boats/etc. -- but to be out on the sunny coast of southern California in a lovely boat with a great crew was fantastic. I, my sister, niece and two cousins from the East Coast had a fabulous time as we watched two greys and tons of dolphins play and feed in the blue water during the very relaxing 2 hours on the Dana Wharf boat. The crew is well informed, friendly and reliable -- very organized and professional. If you don't take the time to go out with the Dana Wharf crew, you've missed a wonderful time!

Fun & informative outing

We had a great time, the crew is young and very informative and respectful of the sea-life! As the captain saw the different dolphins (common, bottle nose & rizzos) he told us a lot of information of the different species that was very interesting. We also saw a whale and her calf, we really liked how respectful the crew was of the whale "mom" and calf and kept their distance . Wonderful outing and the crew was great!

My trip was a once in a lifetime

I was blessed enough to observe one gray whale on my trip, on 1/3/12 After we viewed the gray fro a while, we went to see what else we might find, and I was blessed, fortunate enough to be on the Dana Pride noon ride, and we found the pod of 10 orcas. This was my first trip since a kid on a field trip in 3rd grade. Only downside, was the dude "narrating" the trip never stopped. So for essentially 2 hours, some dude on a loud PA system, was just yackin, and yackin, and..... it was really a downer. Otherwise would have been a 5-star trip.

No whale seen ...

The tour is not very long and, therefore, the chances of seeing a whale really are a function of whether whales are in the direct neighborhood or not. They should provide more info up front (I'm sure they knew we would not see anything that day since they do the same ride 3 times a day). It is nice to see dolphins and sealions though but ...

Always good to be on a boat

Did not see any Whales or Dolphins. Still good to get on boat. They did give a voucher for future boat trip.
