Whales, Dolphins. Sea Lions
Tue, Mar 18  10:00 AM scerswell Female 60-69 Local Family With Children
My 4 year old grandson and I enjoyed the voyage enormously. It was great to see whales so close, and watching the dolphins play along the boat was enjoyable. And who can forget the sea lions sunning themselves on the buoy. It just was a great trip. We will definitely return. Thank you!

Fun but too many people
Sun, Mar 16  12:45 PM brian1y Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
It was fun. But there were so many people, and so little space that lines were tangled every few minutes, and there wasn't a chance to cast or do anything other than just drop the hook straight down.

Mother Nature keeps us waiting...

I loved that getting our tickets was so simple. Everyone was nice. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to see any whales but we did have a lovely afternoon out and we have a "whale check" to return for another adventure. You can't beat this policy! You cannot predict Mother Nature so just enjoy the ride and maybe you'll get lucky.

Whales, whales ~~ everywhere whales!
Wed, Mar 12  12:00 PM JamesPeeler Male 70+ Local Group of Friends
I never saw so many whales in all my life ~~ all at one time. Wow. They were called False Killer Whales and hardly ever seen here at the coastline of Dana Point. Literally hundreds of them.....at least that's what it seemed like. It didn't matter where you looked, there they were, not just one or two, but four, five, eight, ten, swimming together alongside the boat, in front and in back, swimming in unison everywhere! I even saw one "fluke" out of the water. It was fantastic. We had a couple with us from Kitali, Kenya, Africa and they were awe struck. Thank you, Captain Dave.

Had a great time on the boat with my husband children. Unfortunately we didn't see any whales or dolphins, but they were so kind enough to give us a raincheck to come back! Will definately be going back and telling my family and friends about it!!

Fantastic experience and loads of fun
Sun, Mar 9  1:00 PM Dsmith0049 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
This is my 2nd go with Whale watching. The weather was beautiful, and the reservation was a snap. Parking was a bit challenging but they offered us another time frame if we were not able to park in time to make the trip. Arrive at least 2 hours prior to your departure as this is whale watching season and especially if its on the weekend. The captain was knowledgeable and respectful and we saw whales and lots of dolphins. Fun for any age group. The water was calm and so pretty. You must experience this as it is just unique. Bring your camera! Looking forward to another one soon!

Weve gone out with Dana Wharf several times in the past. It's always a good time. The crew and staff are always helpful and informative. This year the weather and nature complied perfectly and it was a stellar day!
