Well worth it

Whales are right off shore so no long trek out to sea. Boat commodious. Bloody Mary's available for those with children (and food for kids as well). Very persistent crew in finding and tracking whales. Good commentary

The 1/2 price whale watch was well worth the money. We did see a pod of 6 whales, some dolphins, and seals. The boat was in good condition and staff was friendly and informative.

We saw Fin Whales, Grey Whales, Dolphins, and Sea Lions!!! To top off the whole trip, we saw a whale breach and another whale's fluke as we were returning to the harbor. I would reccommend this to anyone.

This was a great memorable family adventure. This is for the kids and the adults too. The staff at Dana Wharf Sport Fishing & Whale Watching are very professional and knowledgable. Without a doubt' I would (and have) recommended them to many family and friends. I wish we could have seen more whales, but we have no control over nature. We look forward to another adventure with Dana Wharf.

Great family activity

We had a great time on our trip. If I had a choice to do this again, I would try to go during the week. There was a lot of boat traffic in the water on Sunday afternoon, as one might expect and the other boats did not understand the unofficial rules of whale watching. Our captain did all he could to educate them and encourage them to be responsible and respectful to both the whales and all the rest of us who were trying to enjoy this wonderful experience. Overall, we still had a terrific time and did have success in seeing gray whales, dolphins, and sea lions. I would definitely recommend this for anyone!

I have always wanted to go whale watching, glad I did. Even if we hadn't seen the whales it would of been an awesome trip. The Captain was very informative and we will be going again next season :)

Whale Watching and Fog Don't Mix
Thu, Mar 14, 13   2:00 PM booksmorris Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
The chances of sighting a whale in the fog are slim to none. Unfortunately that was the case on our 2-hour cruise. No luck, but no one to blame either. Just one of those "rain or shine or no-sunshine" events. We did receive complementary tickets for a future whale watching expedition. We did see multiple sea lions.

Like being on a cruise. We got a little more time since it was the last trip of the day. Started out foggy but cleared up at 3:00. Saw a gray whale which the captain was able to follow for a while. Saw the whale breached several times. After that we followed a school of dolphins. They came alongside the boat. On the way back, the captain stopped at a buoy where seals were resting. He explained why they were resting. They hunt at night and rest during the day. Enjoyed the trip with my daughter. Will do again next year.

whale and fishing
Sun, Mar 10, 13   4:00 PM TAITWILCOX Male 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
We came back after doing a fishing trip two years prior. This trip we took two whale watching trips one regular and one on the catemaran. We loved it and received plenty of info as the captians were knowledgeble and shared it with us. The next day was fishing five hour tour. We had fun and caught a few fish. since we have been there on two different family vacations with no bad experinces we highly recommend it to others as well.

We saw 1 grey whale but many, many dolphins. The explanations from the Captain were excellent. We learned a lot about these creatures. When we are in the area again, we will make another whale watch excursion. Thanks !!

We went out on the first tour at 8am and were back right on time at 10am. The captain was very knowledgeable and he found three or four whales, a couple quite close to our boat. The swells and troughs were pretty intense and but the boat kept chasing whales so the no one in our group got ill. We had seats on the top deck, which I highly recommend. Just a beautiful day. Thanks!
