A Very Nice Excursion

Although the ride was a bit chilly (you may want to add on an extra layer to those you plan on wearing), the crew was very friendly and the scenery was great. We saw a number of gray whales and the boat's pilot did a nice job putting us in a reasonable position to view them. We had a great time.

Captain sounded doubtful at first that we would have any whale sightings. We saw some dolphins but the boat was going too slow to really watch them bow ride. We finally saw some whales breaching, which was fantastic. I just wish the captain didn't keep turning the boat to get the whales only on the right side, when we spotted them on the left side of the boat and that's where we were sitting to get pictures. Good trip overall though.

We went on the valentines day sunset whale watching cruise. It was my husband and I and then my mom and dad. It was the BEST time! We saw 1 whale and hundreds of dolphins. The crew was very nice and friendly. We are already trying to plan our next trip. This is definately worth every penny!

This was our first time whalewatching with Dana Wharf. It was a smaller boat than on previous trips and that was a plus. The boat was clean, the crew was friendly and informative. We didn't have to go to far out before we began to follow a whale. On the return trip we spotted 4-5 more. We all had a good time.

The whole family had a good time on this trip. We had two 4 yr olds so we were a bit worried about how they would do and it all went fine. I think however that about 90 min into the 2 hr trip both girls started to feel some motion sickness. We had brought crackers and juice with us along with other snacks and that seemed to settle their stomachs. We saw two whales and a huge school of dolphins as well as some sea lions. Boat personnel were very nice and it all went well. There are tables and benchs on top of the boat so if you want that, get in line early to get first dibs. Also if you want a good spot at the front of the boat. Set your camera on telephoto and sports speed.

No whales nor dolphins

We saw no whales nor dolphins. We found out there were 5 whales but it was to far to go there. Dolphins garanteed, it was not the case. It is life, we did not get lucky that day. I know they are wild animals and understand that we cannot admire them all the time. It is not your fault. We got 2 ticktes to get back another day, which we will do soon for sure. I hope to see them ! I am crossing my fingers.

All boat personnel were extremely friendly and helpful. Within 45 minutes we spotted three Gray whales and followed them for about another 45. One of the boat staff gave excellent commentary including whale facts. The boat was clean and easy to navigate around.
