Great Family Day Outing
Thu, Aug 26, 10   10:00 AM khoffman2 Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
We all had a great time on the boat. The crew was very helpful coming to our aid with fishing rods, jammed reels, lost weights and hooks. It was so nice being out on the water and seeing the coastline. In addition we saw wonderful marine life during our trip. We had a great day.

We enjoyed our whale watching cruise but unfortunately did not see any whales. The person on the microphone commented that not only were there no whales but the wildlife in general seemed especially quiet. As avid whale watchers we appreciated that that's a chance you take when going whale watching but were disappointed nonetheless. We were given our tickets back. We live out of the area so not sure if we'll ever use our tickets but appreciated the gesture.

A Beautiful Evening

Every season since moving to CA., 5 yrs. ago, we've come on a tour. Our first year we saw whales, and every year we see dolphins. Finally this year we got lucky again and saw the Blue whales. Thanks to an awesome captain and crew, who actively sought out the whales, we, and our out of town guests, were blessed with seeing these beautiful creatures. The whales were even nice enough to 'fluke' for us! Highly recommend the cruises

Great day on the water!
1/2 Priced Catamaran Adventure Whale Watch Cruises
Tue, Aug 24, 10   4:00 PM chenwong Female 40-49 Local Family With Children
The weather was perfect (heat wave inland but perfect out on the bay) and the crew was very nice and informative. We were joined by many pods of common dolphins that swam alongside and in front of our boat, saw a few fin whales (the crew said that was an unusual sighting), and saw a few blue whales spouting! Quite a successful day as far as seeing marine life. Two of the kids experienced some seasickness when the boat stopped (to view the whales) but they recovered once we were headed back to shore. Parking was easy and free - boat was clean. Would definitely go again, especially on half-price Tuesdays!

Fabulous & Exciting 2 Hr Tour

I took my mother and daughter for an enjoyable morning cruise. My daughter wanted to ride a boat and we thought this would be a great introduction to boating. Everyone's adventure meter is different, but I had the time of my life. For my 2 yr old, live is always exciting and she had a grin on her face the whole time. What we got was an experience that was out of this world!! Granted, whale sightings are at their best but even if you only saw one whale, the trip was relaxing with great views of the coast line. The day we went, we saw over 15 whales and only had to wait 2-3 minutes between each whale. I was told usually it is 15 minutes because the whales dive deap to eat . This day the Krill was on the surface and the whales didn't have to dive too long. The crew was very courteous and very knowledgable. We took the morning cruise (10am) and the water was calm and there were plenty of young ones on board. They all seemed to enjoy themselves. Especially when the crew brought on board a bucket of Krill for the kids to play with. The boat is nicely supplied with snacks, grub and drinks so if you get the munchies, you will be fine. On the return, we saw a huge pod of dolphins and it was a blast seeing them swimming as fast as they can at the front of the boat. I have lived in Orange County all my life and I don't know why I waited so long to take a whale watching tour. This was the best time and I will definatley do it again and with Dana Wharf. This is truely a gem of Southern California. Enjoy your trip!!

Delightful Experience

We were up close and personal with several HUGE blue whales feeding. Such smooth waters and so much food at the surface, we enjoyed not only terrific blue whale encounters but close contact with several pods of dolphins and a few friendly sea lions. All that I had hoped for and much more.

We were extremely happy with this whale watching tour. The catamaran was clean & roomy. Not a bad seat on the boat! The staff was helpful, courteous, and educational. We were fortunate to view lots of whales, dolphins, and sea lions. Would highly recommend this to everyone. We will definitely go again!

We had a grand time. The catamaran and crew were fabulous. We saw 4 blue whales and a sun fish. Crew answered all our questions and my granddaughter enjoyed a great P&J sandwich. You definitely cannot go wrong in booking this type of trip for your family.
