No Whales

We did not see any whales which was disappointing but lots of dolphins and sea lions. It was rough waters but fun. Next time we will bring blankets - the four year old with us did enjoy it but said it was too long. I guess two hours can be long for a little guy. We all had fun and the crew was great. Departures and arrivals were timely.

George and the rest of the crew are fantastic! This was our second whale watching with your company, and both times were perfect. We saw grey whales this time, and last time we saw blue whales and hundreds of dolphins. I love the respect that your crew shows for nature. We also bought the video, and love it. Thanks! We will be back to take another trip.

We enjoyed our trip tremendously, treated from start to finish as if we were part of there family. Given a complete narrative of our surroundings and marine life.They were as enthusiastic as we were upon whale sightings. I would recommend this trip highly.

The Dophins were out of this world...unfortunately we missed the Whales but the Dolphins more than made up for the missing Whales............

Beautiful Views, Excellent Crew

While we were disappointed that there had been no whale sightings that day, we were impressed with the effort the crew made to give us a delightful and entertaining ride. They scanned the waters and contacted other boats to locate a pod of dolphins. They were such fun to watch playing in the water. Our boat paused in the area to give us excellent photo-opts. The children loved seeing the baby dolphin. As a grandma, I loved the views of the coastline. It was a cool day but the sunshine made it perfect. Thank you for a wonderful time!

No Whale Sighting But Excursion Sensational!

The crew was most accommodating and knowledgeable. The excursion was educational with a lot of history and information provided.. While we did not see a whale, we saw several sea lions and hundreds of dolphin. The weather was picture perfect, and the passengers were friendly. I bought a DVD filmed by one of the crew that showed many whales, so I feel fulfilled.

Not reccomended should have gone to Long Beach
Wed, Mar 9, 11   12:00 PM JanCortez Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
After having time to think about the trip I feel we were deceived. The whole time we were in the boat we never really left the local port, in fact we could see Dana Harbor the whole time. Seeing the Dolphins was a nice sight to see, but if the captain had taken us further out the chances of seeing a whale would have been greater. Seeing as the next trip was in 2 hours, I feel what happened was a standard practice of the excursion. Looking at the paper the next morning Long Beach sighted a whole pod of whales. Now that's whale watching. I don't like to say negative comments, but it was a waste of our money as we can see Dolphins any day by mearly walking the beach.

RE: What a Day!

My Second Great Adventure with Dana Wharf whale watching this season. My Out of Town guests didn't know what to expect but will never forget the boat surrounded by Dolpins leaping from every direction to feed on huge school of bait fish and Pelicans dive bombing by the hundreds... Better than any National Geographic special... and just a couple minutes out of the Harbor in deal calm seas! Crew was terrific explaining what was happening and enthusiam for the day as well... A great bargain for anyone visiting The OC ...
