Whale and Dolphin Watching Adventure Tour

Our experience was great!! We saw many dolphins, although we would have loved to have seen some whales. But this is something my kids and I will never forget.

Fantastic

Captain Larry did a wonderful job and with enthusiasm. You can tell that he loves what he does, so he does it well... It was a lot of fun and we saw thousands of dolphins happy to see us while they were playing all around our boat. They even practiced jumping the waves at the back of the boat. It was exciting!

I loved this activity from start to finish. Even without seeing any whales as this was off season and I was warned of that, the boat ride up the coast was so enjoyable. We did end up tracking into several PODS of dolphins. Being from Florida and an avid boater- Still that was the most dolphins I have ever seen in my life. What FUN! Crew and office folks were very knowledgable and helpful. The boat ride alone was worth the money at a very reasonable price. THANKS !

Took my husband, 4 year old son and 7 year old daughter on this trip spontaneously and had a great time! We got to see a grey whale with a calf, and the captain navigated us through a large hunting pod of dolphins...over 100 dolphins! The kids were talking about this trip for days!

So i went on the same boat last summer and it was great. Caught lots of fish and even had god food, but this timeit was a different story. ther didnt even take us to a good spot didnt chum the water out of the 30 people on the boat 10 fish were caught the food took a good 30 minutes to get to you and the crew was horrible. DONT GO ON THIS TRIP!!!!! I may be young but i am an experienced fisherman and i think this was a waist of money. Pick another company to give your monry to.

Well, we had an amazing but maybe not typical experience. The trip we were on wasn't too crowded which was really nice. Then we got to follow a mama gray whale with her baby. The baby actually breached, and I caught it on video. We really enjoyed our trip. I got some food from the galley, too. The grilled cheese was delicious.

No whale...no refund
Sat, Apr 23, 11   4:00 PM minamu1 Male 20-29 Local Couple on a Date
The boat ride was nice and not over-crowded; the crew were friendly. Unfortunately, we did not see any whales on our trip. They offered a "whale check" ticket to everyone to return in the future for a free trip. The ticket has no expiration. However, given that we were out-of-towners, that did not help us much. We'd have to be back in LA to benefit from this. They refused to give us a refund either. One of their staff suggested we "give the tickets to some stranger".... how weird. Nice boat ride though... for $30 a pop.

Fishing the local spots

We always enjoy the Dana Wharf fishing trips. They know the local spots and put you right on the fish. Wheter its the long range, catalina or local hot spots. You will catch 'em.

My husband and I had our 2 nephews in town from Chicago (ages 14 & 17); since it was too cold for the beach, yet we wanted to get them near the ocean, we thought this would be a great way - affordable and on the water. We didn't know what to expect as far as the wildlife, but we hit the jackpot - whale, pod of 100's of dolphins, sea lions and then a mother whale w/calf - the experience was amazing and the pictures incredible - they look like something you'd see on TV. On the flip side, my sister was in with her family (3 boys, ages 8-11) a month ago, and they did this. Unfortunately, they didn't see any marine life. However, they did get 2 hours out on the ocean and got their money back (just as it was promised ). While the experiences were on the both ends of the spectrum in regards to the marine life seen, the experiences were both great. I have already recommended it to some friends @ work and I will be doing this again!
