Very cool way to spend a few hours on a Saturday!

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!

Two seniors with a a ten year old boy...............It was a wonderfu experience. We experienced one whale and a pod of dolphins on a beautiful day. The crew were very informative. Couldn't ask for more.........maybe a $3 hot dog instead of $5. Thanks

From beginning to end, the customer service was excellent. I was running a few minutes late and they were considerate enough to wait for me just a couple of minutes as I made my way through the parking lot, not only that, but as I literally got onto the boat, I had a customer service representative call me to see if I had been able to make it after all! Now that's service! Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and you can tell this is not just a job for him, but his calling in life! I and my friend had a great time, learned a lot, and got to see a fantastic whale and playful dolphins...can't wait to go back again next time!

It was just OK

We were out there for around 2 hours. It was a nice and pleasant day. We only saw one grey whale going by. Seeing a grey whale surface and then dive down showing off its beautiful fluke, was spectacular. But somehow I expected more out of this short trip, I was hoping to see more whales, maybe some species of dolphins but for me , personally, after the 15 minutes of watching the beautiful whale, the trip was kinda flat. Not much else to see but the ocean. I guess its all luck, one day you see everything, the other not so much.

The boat was great with lot's of room to move around. The crew was fabulous. The captain was great with his knowledge of wildlife and the chef made us yummy breakfast sandwiches. Everyone was kind and friendly. We got to see Common dolphins, a Grey whale, and some sea lions. I would recommend this excursion to everyone. Thank you, Stefanie Griffin
