This was a fun tour even though we didn't see any whales. We did see a few different species of dolphin as well as sea lions!

We didn't see any whales for almost 1.5 hours. At that point we saw many, and so they actually extended the tour so we could view them longer. That was unexpected and appreciated. The lower area of the boat where the snack bar is could be upgraded a little. It's not a very nice area. I'm sure most people stand outside, but if you want a place to sit for a while it should be a little nicer.

It was a very nice day off of Dana Point and the captain was very informative knowing that 2 whales were spotted heading our way. He made sure we were able to see them. The dolphins, 2 unfortunately, swam under the boat each time I tried to snap a shot of them. All in all a great day! Highly recommend going out of Dana Point.

A great place to take an out of town visitor

This is a gem of a place to take an out of town visitor. On our trip, we were able to see a whale (a part of it at least), and many many dolphins. The ship was nice, the crew were laid back, and they were eager to find the whales---and get us close to view them. The experience was amazing---and we'll definitely be back when other people come visit us.

We had a great time on our tour. The captain was very helpful in describing the types of dolphins and whales that we were able to see. He also went out of his way to ensure that we saw as much of the whales as possible. I am looking forward to doing this again.

The boat was very nice and not crowded. We encountered bottlenose dolphins but no whales. We could've spent more time watching the dolphins.

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.
