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.

Shortly after leaving the harbor we entered a "superpod" of common dolphins, estimated at 3,000 to 4,000 strong. We stayed with the pod for the next 45 minutes as they darted and leapt around the boat. It was an amazing sight.

I enjoyed the trip but only saw Dalphins and I thought that this was a whale watching trip. I did not like the notice that if you did not see any whales or dolphins then you get a free trip. You will always see dolphins in the ocean as I have talked to others that have taken the trip but we wanted to see whales.

2 Whales from 500 yards away

When I first arrived, I was told I could not board until I paid more money. Huh! We already have a contract/ticket for this price. They said the coupon used was not valid on this voyage. (How convenient!) Your website accepted the coupon and issued the ticket, right? Excuses!--none valid! The only thing to see on this trip was people vomiting(at least 12) And a lot of people pissed that they had to pay extra for no reason. I saw 2 whales(one from 500 yards away, and one from 1000 yards away.) I saw about 10 dolphins and half a dozen sea lions on a buoy. Not worth the price!

We had a great day. We didn't see any whales but our captain followed a pod of dolphins and gave us some great information! We continued the hunt for whales but while there wasn't a single one for us to observe, the ship and crew were great!

Great trip. The kids loved seeing all the dolphins but were a bit disappointed in not seeing any whales. We were told it's not a good time for the whale watching once we were already on the catamaran. I think that disclaimer should be announced before purchase.
