whale watch tour
Tue, Apr 15  2:30 PM cnelson72ia Female 40-49 Domestic Tourist(s) Family With Children
while we didn't see anything except 1 whale and a calf, on our way back into dock, we were still given whale cards for a free return excursion which was extremely nice and there is no expiration for them which apparently is what they offer and I didn't know that - awesome customer service. Also bought some hoodies from their store. Can't wait to use them!!! Captain was very knowledgeable and told us many facts throughout the cruise.

The staff was courteous and full of information. Knowledgeable about the sea life around the Dana Point and San Clemente area. We spotted five Gray Whales on the tour and enjoyed the tour very much.

I took my elderly parents out and we had a great experience with dolphins and saw whales. Just the view of the coastline from the water was appreciated by my 90+ year old step-dad from Iowa. Thanks,

We were very lucky to cone into a large pod of Dolphins, despite heading out in fog. We were totally surrounded by hundreds of swimming jumping dolphins - truly an experience of a lifetime. The boat was immaculate. Overall great, but I did find the one staff member was rather curt for no reason. He no longer seemed to be enjoying his job. Overall it was more than we hoped for.

This was our second time visiting the Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching. It is a family favorite. We saw lots of whales this trip and lots of dolphins on the last trip. We always enjoy being out on the boat as well. The prices are so reasonable and the schedule is very accommodating. We love this excursion. Thank you!

took a 2 hour whale watch in mid afternoon. was not too crowded, great day! saw a gray whale with pup, a second gray whale, a number of sea lions out in the ocean and some fin whales! One of the fin whales liked us and played around the boat for some time giving us all a thrill! only suggestion i would make is for them to improve their audio, most of the time we could not hear what they were saying,,,, but that didn't impact what we saw!!

We saw scores of dolphins as well as SeaLions and a gray whale with her calf. Amazing! Take a coat, though...cold out on the water in the wind.

Smooth boating, saw many many dolphins and a Whale and her calf! We were all excited. I was as thrilled as my two grandchildren, 10 and 12 were to see as much as we did. Easy, pleasant and lots of fun! We will definitely do it again, especially when visitors come in to town.

I have been on this trip twice and will be going again next month when I have company again. It is an amazing experience for any age group. The Captains are knowledgeable as are all the staff, but most of all, it is sooo much fun!!!!
