Did not spot any whales but totally enjoyed boat trip out in the big blue. Boat/yacht was beautiful, clean with excellent menu selection in the galley. So relaxing and enjoyable. Saw plenty of dolphins which was spectacular. Totally appreciate voucher to experience again. Intuition says we will catch that grey whale next time

The cruise boat was very clean and orderly. Crew was A+. The only thing our group would have recommended would be for the captain to announce a tad more about the grey whales (ie: since Newport Coast is such a fashion hub, it would be interesting to note a fun fact such as "ambergris". It comes from the whales and is historical in the use of a fixative in the perfume industry. The captain was wonderful in announcing whale info, but possibly add 5% of fun details such as this. All in all GREAT EXPERIENCE and would do it again.

Great Activity

We had a great time. The Dana Wharf facility has ample parking, friendly staff and clean boats. The captain's running narrative while we were out in the ocean was entertaining, educational and high energy. We saw at least four whales. Bonus round: a dozen dolphins followed the boat and played in the boat's wake for awhile. The captain glided by the harbour bouy on the return trip and gave us a close look and quick lesson about the seals/sea lion piled up in the float. I would highly recommend Dana Wharf Whale Watching trip.

This was a nice event. We did not see any whales. We did not see many dolphins either. Make sure it is sunny and warm outside.

All of our experience was very positive except that it was sometimes difficult to hear and/or understand what was being said over the speakers depending upon where we were located. Safety information at the beginning was almost unintelligible. Perhaps it could be given before the boat is underway. Crew members answered questions in a professional and friendly way when asked. This was a very enjoyable experience!

My mother, best friend, and myself had a great time on this whale watching excursion. We saw two grey whales, a pod of dolphins, and some adorable seals. Thankfully the crew also handed out 50% off coupons for the next time and I can't wait to use them! Thanks for a great tiem!

The day was wonderful. Unfortunely, the whales were hiding on us, but the dolphins were out to play. The staff was wonderful and very friendly and courteous. Would go again...
