The Captain was very knowledgable about sea life and kept the passengers informed on where we were going and the things we might see. We went out on a foggy day but the sea life was plentiful. The sea lions, the dolphins and the wales were a wonderful site!!!

The crew was really informative about the animals we were seeing. The boat was clean and very comfortable. We saw 1 grey whale, quite a few common dolphins as well as sea lions.

We enjoyed our experience with this tour group even though we saw no whales. We had a great experience with the dolphins and the feeding birds. The crew was helpful, without intruding.

THE CAPITAN OF OUR SHIP WAS UNBELIVEABLY KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THE WHALES, PORPOISES THE SEA AND WHAT LIVES IN IT. EVEN IF WE HAD NOT SEEN A WHALE, WHICH WAS HARD BECAUSE OF THE MARINE LAYER, THE NARRATION WAS WORTH THE TRIP. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Great time and did not see much for over one hour, then captain announced he spotted two humpback whales and we sped to the area, Oblerves two humpbacks traveling together.. Later observed minke whale and some sea lions, Also captain oblerved grey whale, but it was near the end of our time and had to return. Great time, and would redcommend to anyone, If you do not see something, you can return for free!!

Big bang for your buck

We go whale watching several times a year and always out of Dana Point. The tours are enjoyable and educational as the crew is very knowledgeable about the local marine life. Every possible effort is made to view a whale but of course, that is not always going to happen so the captain is always on the lookout for dolphins, sea lions, etc. No matter what you see, a day spent on the water is a good day.

We had visited Southern California before and never spotted any whales. We decided to take the Dana Wharf Whale Watching tour. The Captain and crew were very informed about whales and dolphins and not only gave tips on spotting whales and dolphins but also shared factual information in an interesting way. On the trip we saw several Grey Whales, Sea Lions, and a large group of Common Dolphins. The Captain cruised slowly and turned the boat frequently allowing all passengers to get a good view and take photographs. We took the 2 p.m. cruise after the morning fog lifted. That worked well for visibility. After the cruise, I was able to spot more whales from the shore using the tips I had learned on the cruise. We would definitely go again.
