Best 2 hours I have spent in DP in years

The Captain and crew went beyond duty to make sure you were not only enjoying yourself on the mini excursion but it was incredibly informative. I did not feel like a spectator at Sea World but learning a true appreciation of why we were seeing the whales and dolphins and the immense respect for their trek to and from Alaska to Baja. We were lucky to see a mom and her calf and a few other whales. And we ended up getting a 30 minute show by thousands of dolphins who seemed very happy to see us and showed off their swimming skills. So nice to see these beautiful mammals in the wild. I will go again and definitely recommend it to all my friends and family.

Come fishing!

I have fished up and down the California coast for over 50 years. There are a lot of good ports, and a lot of good boats. But none can beat the Dana Wharf for clean boats, good scenery, and friendly, helpful crews. I fish on the Dana Wharf boats a lot- nearly every week. I hope to meet you when you come out fishing.

Took family on whale watching trip. Saw whales playing and diving, flukes visible. Great trip. Tons of dolphins and sea lions too. Very worthwhile trip. Company has great respect for environment and the animals. Worth a redo.

It was a beautiful day for whale watching! It was my first time, since I was a kid, and I will never forget it. We saw a whale breaching 4 times and it was simply amazing! I will definitely be coming back!!!

Fun and informative

My wife and I were visiting her sister in Orange Co. and she suggested this activity as something new to do while there. While we had seen whales in Hawaii , it was from a distance(hiway overlook), so it was pretty cool being close and on the water with them this time.There were 4 whales total sighted and followed. It's also always fun to have dolphins playing along side the boat. I would recommend for anyone who can handle a few large swells on occasion while on the water.

I have a two year old and a three year old both loved it. We were lucky enough to see hundreds or dolphins playing and jumping. We even ran into a gray whale. The kids cant wait to do it again.

Very enjoyable and educational outing. The captains explanations and additional commentary were well worth it. I would like to point out for future customers that there are many discount deals available, including free trips on your birthday and 40% off if you use them to go to Catalina prevously.
