Unbelievable Experience

My husband and I took relatives and friends who were visiting us from VA, CT and KS. We had the most exciting ride ever. The day was perfect. We saw whales going south and whales going north which is quite unusual we found out. Some of the whales showed off their tails while other jumped clear out of the water. We saw about 8-10 whale jumps. Then as we were returning, a group (there were so many we could not count them) came along side our boat and put on a show for us . They were swimming with us and jumping up and out of the water. It was more that we ever exxpected and the Captain said it was the best trip of the season. I highly reccomend this trip to everyone of all ages.

We had grandma/grandpa with us, as well as children (under 1 up to 5 yrs) and it was a wonderful experience. The crew seemed very knowledgeable, and we were able to see these amazing creatures. I highly recommend this trip and Dana Wharf.

It was my father's 89th birthday, he had never been on the ocean and eager to see Whales and Dolphins. While we did not see a whale, we had the adventure of our lifetime as the captain spotted a large group of dolphin of all ages. They stayed close to our boat for what seemed like and hour. It was an incredible experience for my father as well as my 19th year old son. We had an amazing time!

Even though we didn't see any whales, we did see a very large pod of dolphins out and about.....seemed like thousands of them! It felt great being out on the water and the captain gave a nice narration of all that was going on around us, especially of the type of dolphins we were seeing. We had a great time and it was very relaxing!

While we didn't get lucky enough to see a whale, we did see more dolphins than we could count, along with quite a few baby dolphins. My kids, ages 9 & 5, were thrilled to see the animals in the wild and can't stop talking about the experience. The staff was friendly and informative. We will definitely return.

This is something to share with your family. My kids (6 & 2 yrs) loved watching the dolphins leap in and out the water, see the whales & watching a sea lion swim around. This was our 2nd time to go on Dana Wharf's Tour and it's been great both times. A must see!

The weather was perfect ! It could have been cold and windy. The boat is roomy with plenty of seating if you get in line early. The Captain was informative. We followed 3 whales for about 45 minutes. The captain then took us to see a pod of Dolphins numbering 50+. This was the real show. The adults as well as the children were so excited. It was a great experience!
