This was a very entertaining trip. We saw lots of dolphins and enjoyed the trip. We also saw a couple of whales on are trip. This was well worth the time.

Even though we didn't get to see any whales that day, we did see a lot of dolphins and sea lions. The guides were really informative and it was so much fun to see the dolphins in their natural habitat. Since we didn't see any whales, we got our tickets back to come another day. I would highly recommend!

It was okay, but saw no whales!

The boat was nice & clean and safe and the staff were pleasant. However, we did not get to see any whales. I was really disappointed since I live in Florida and see dolphins & pelicans all the time here. I did see some sea lions, which were cool. It was also a littler cooler than I expected and I had to sit inside towards the end of the trip due to the falling temps.

Having never been on a whale watching trip before I wasn't sure what to expect but after going on this one I would go again in an instant! My mom and I went with my three small children(4,3, and 2) and absolutely loved it. I think anyone would be amazed at watching the dolphins in their natural environment interacting with the boat. They swam alongside the boat and were beautiful to watch. My girls loved them and didn't want to get off the boat. The tour is called a whale watching tour and we did see one menke whale but the dolphins were so much more interesting to me! I would recommend the tour to everyone. We loved it!! Jessica Narvaez

So much fun - love the captain and crew, all so friendly and very funny! Glad we got to see whales since we heard the last 5 trips before us they didn't get to see anything! I guess we really got lucky! =)

Never disappointed with Dana Wharf Sportfishing

Spent last Wed (2/21) on the afternoon whale watch with my son and his friend. The crew was TIRELESS in their efforts to find whales, going over the allotted time by almost 45 minutes. Thanks to their patience & know-how, we saw four fin whales--GLORIOUS! That's on top of seeing a pod of dolphins, which are always amazing to see. We go on about two whale watches a year, and we are always so happy with DWS; they also happen to make the best grilled cheese sandwiches in the galley!
