We had a great time!

Took my grandson (19 yrs. of age) and the weather was a bit cloudy at the start, but the sun came out in the early afternoon. Fishing wasn't great, but most everyone caught fish. We met some nice people from Egypt and helped them with their fishing tackle as they had no saltwater fishing experience. The crew were all extremely helpful and patient with everyone. It was an enjoyable day on the water.

Great Show Put on by Hundreds of Dolphins
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

Although there were no whales in sight, the show that the hundreds of dolphins provided was great. The weather couldn't have been better and the information provided by the crew was most interesting. They were very patient with all of our questions. I never would have known that so many dolphins would be in a pod. Also the interesting way the birds gave the signal to the dolphins as to where the fish were was something I wouldn't have imagined. Great trip and I will be back hopefully to see a blue whale!

HI, We made this a family outing. Grandpa, grandma, three mommies, two daddies, nine kids from 3 to 15. It was the first time for many of the kids and they were excited to ride on the big boat. We saw lots of dolphins -- no whales this time -- and the weather was perfect. The crew members were courteous and helpful and friendly. The boat was neat and clean and in good repair. All in all, a fun experience for everyone. Thank you.

We didn't see any whales on this trip, but did see over a hundred dolphins feeding and surfing very near the boat. The weather was good, and the ocean was beautiful. We enjoyed the marvelous South Orange County coastline. The narrator was very interesting and informative. A whale sighting would have been even better, but not necessary for a great trip. Will definitely do it again.

Six of us, three generations -- ranging in age from 79 to 22 took the tour, and everyone of us enjoyed it very much. This is the third time we have taken this tour, and each one seems to be more fun than the last. The weather was perfect, the tour guides very knowledgeable and helpful, and we saw lots of activity in the water. I didn't see a whale myself, but we saw several the last two years we were here. More fun than the whales are the hundreds of dolphin that we saw this time. They chase the wake, and surround the boat. We also saw hundreds of pelican feeding and diving for fish. It was just a very enjoyable, fun and delightful experience for all six of us.

My companion and I enjoyed the experience very much and our guides found a whale and gave us the opportunity of viewing it for several minutes before encountering a large pod of dolphins . The crew of the vessel were very professional and were very conversant in the habits and behaviour of the animals which made our experience more enjoyable . We highly recommend the Dana Wharf organization to others who want to enjoy the experience we had .

I've been on the boat many times. People who run it are knowledgeable, good communicators, know where to go to play with our whale and dolsphine friends. They love their work and I never tire of the joy of being out on the water, experiencing the peace and connection with all the elements and the sentient Beings of the sea. Last trip was a rare day when we didn't see any, and it was a great day anyway......and we get a rain check. How good is that!. MzB.
