Have been participating in Dana Wharf whale watches for 20+ years and always take visitors. Not too lucky seeing whales and/or dolphins/porpoises but always a nice 2 hours on the water. Commentary is always good and helpful to "first timers".

Worth the trip

I've been on other whale watching cruises and saw only dolphins and sea lions. This cruise was great as two whales were sighted and surfaced several times. I would recommend anyone wishing to take pictures to have a high speed camera as you will have only seconds to point and shoot. The other option is to have a camcorder where you can catch the whale as it surfaces and clip photos from there. An overall GREAT trip!

Delightful day out

We appreciated the Tuesday half-price tickets, the on-time departure and return, the enthusiastic welcome, the many dolphins and the lone whale we saw. It was a beautiful sunny day and it was a stable boat with a happy crowd. We didn't eat on board, but others seemed to like their food. Would recommend this to all ages.

Although we didn't see any whales on this trip, we did see several pods of dolphins. The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We arrived early and were able to switch to the first ship out without any problems. The service people were friendly and very helpful.

The whale watching was a great experience, the Dolphins were an additional bonus and were out of this world to watch. Thanks to the crew, they were very helpful.

We did not see any whales, but did see dolphins and sea lions. The day was beautiful and the trip was a fun two hours in spite of the lack of whales.

We took advantage of the Tuesday offer and had a fun day together. The tour was well run, clean and not overly crowded.

The crew was very friendly. The boat was large and clean with plenty of places to sit and view the water. I would have hoped for a little more information on the marine life via the man on the PA but the relative quiet was nice too. If the boat were smaller, I think it would have been possible to get a little closer to the whales and not disturb them. It was a nice couple hours on the water and the bloody mary was great.

We tracked one whale and the crew did a great job at explaining the tendencies of the whale and got us in good position to see it.
