I fished the October of 2011 and had a good time. The staff was courteous and efficient. Food was even good. I took the 5 hour pm trip and would due it again.

Bad weather and fog
Mon, Oct 17, 11   12:00 PM DebraKmak Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Group of Friends
It is hard to give any kind of a review since the fog and the weather didn't allow us to see any whales. At least we were able to see some dolphins and sea lions which helped. The cruise lines can't be blamed for the weather.

good value

This was a good value for the whale watching tour. However, we didn't get to see any whales and we were so looking forward to actually seeing the blue whale. We did see dolphins and we did enjoy them. The crew were friendly and apologized for not being able to provide that unique experience of seeing a whale (especially a blue whale) up close; or as close as we can get. That would have been a highlight in my book. I would book again and use the 1/2 off tickets.

Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour
Sat, Oct 8, 11   4:00 PM gwen2468 Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
We lucked out and saw many blue whales, fin whales and three types of dolphin. We had perfect weather. The captain was informative and enthusiastic. He stayed out past our 2 hour time because we were having such a special experience. We were very pleased!

had family in town from the mid-west. it was a really great time and we saw a large number of whales. the captain was excellent at getting to the best viewing spots. the only bummer of the day was the parking ticket i received after parking where your employee told me to park and did not give me a permit. they say they will reimburse me for it and i believe them...

Dana Point/Dana Wharf Whale Watching
Tue, Sep 27, 11   5:00 PM Captainjim Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
Dana Point is a Gem on the Southern Cal coast. The Dana Point Harbor is a great place to visit, shop and dine, less crowded than our neighbors to the North (Laguna, Newport and Huntington). The people at Dana Wharf, the Captain and Crew are all very professional and knowledgeable. There is nothing more spectacular than being on the ocean and experiencing the amazing sight and sound of a Blue or Gray Whale as it breaks the surface, or the Dolphins putting on a show next to the boat! A must if you have a chance!

It was very nice. I would have loved to see a whale and was disappointed that we didn't. The dolphins were out in full force.

Great trip
Sun, Sep 25, 11   12:00 PM Debn99 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
We saw a whale. We followed it for about 3 dives. We also saw california black and white dolphins as well as the normal dolphin. The captain was very knowledgable and was enjoyable. The only down side was the know it all next to me that would not shut up and let me enjoy the ocean.

Fun experience
Sat, Sep 24, 11   12:00 PM kcampmail Female 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
We saw two different types of dolphins and a blue whale. The captain was very knowledgeable and gave us great information about each type of animal that we encountered (habits, natural predators, size, diet, travel range, etc). The boat is very clean and the crew was friendly. Parking appeared to be plentiful and was free. We had a fun trip!

Fantastic fishing and nature experiense
Sat, Sep 24, 11   6:30 AM MarieAsker Female 50-59 International Tourist(s) Individual
Had an magnificient early morning trip. Went out with Dana Wharf sportsfishing & Whale watching last summer also, so I knew that it would be good . Catching squid was real fun and exiting as I've never done that before, they tasted really good also. The crew members are very nice & helpfull. It's also a great way to see wildlife at sea & you are really in it, even to see land from the water is amazing. As fishing is one of my great hobbies I wanted to do it even if I this year was on my own & I had no problems at all taking part of this trip as a lonely female & it felt as we all were a group of freinds out fishing. I highly recomend this activity.
