We had such a great time on our tour. It was a lot of fun and look forward to doing this again. We will be visiting the Southern California area again in the Spring with our children and grandchildren, we will be booking this tour again, I know the kids will love it. Even though we did not see any whales on our tour, we did see plenty of dolphins and sea lions. It was great to be out on the ocean on such a beautiful day. I can't say enough good about our experience.

Enjoyable boat trip

The kids enjoyed seeing the dolphins and searching for the young whale which we saw, sadly, right at the end. The crew were great though, and ran over time to get us a sighting. If we were staying in CA longer we'd have rebooked for the 50% off offer in the hope of seeing whales another day.

Whale watching tour worthwhile
Sat, Oct 25  10:00 AM aboerner Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
The crew and support staff are very friendly and helpful. The captain was very knowledgeable and made a big effort to find the animals. This is very challenging because they are wild animals and show up only if they want to. So we saw a huge pod of dolphins but only one whale. It was a beautiful day and with calm ocean conditions it was very enjoyable to be out on the water. The group offers a ticket for a 50% off of the next trip if you don't see a whale.

A great policy

We were not fortunate enough to see a whale but Dana Wharf has a great policy of issuing a free return visit at your convenience, doesn't expire. Can't do better than that... The boat was clean and comfortable and the crew did everything they could to get us a whale. We would recommend this tour to anyone.

We brought our granddaughters whale watching and they talked about it for days afterwards. They were so excited to see the whale and the dolphins.

I had fun. Wish you could be told when is the best time to see the whales. They say there isn't but I know there is. These tours are everyday 3 times or more a day. I'm fairly certain you can get an idea of when the whales are out and jumping around. That's my only complaint. Other than that, I had fun and would do it again.

Fun trip but the fish were not cooperating this day. It's to be expected that some days it just isn't happening.

Saw many whales of different types and a school of dolphin that played in the wake of the boat and swam along side. Great time. Perfect weather. Wonderful boat and crew. Great time overall!

Fantastic time with Family

We had a great time with the Dolphins and saw a couple of whales too. The skipper did a great job! This was a lot of fun! The Dolphins were swimming right along the boat. As we came back to the marina the sunset was wonderful!

We did the afternoon tour and it was amazing! So worth the money. Watching the sunset into he ocean was so beautiful . We were not expecting to see any whale and we did! It was very exciting and so much fun! We normally go deep sea fishing so we did not know what to expect. Very happy with our tour and would do it again in a heart beat!

Awesome trip! Beautiful views! Put us on the fish!

I was a little skeptical to book a trip on the pacific coast on a bigger boat with 20+ other strangers. Past experiences on other large fishing boats have been very disappointing. After talking to some locals, they assured me this was different and they were so right! The price was extremely reasonable, the captain & mates very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and everyone caught fish! I highly recommend fishing with them and if I get back to the Orange County area, I will certainly book again!

It was a beautiful day. The weather couldn't have been better. We saw a humpback and a smaller whale. We also saw common dolphins playing in our wake. I have done this trip before and each time it has been an awesome experience.
