Awesome/unforgettable experience

We saw so much on our whale catamaran. So worth the money! We saw sea lions, two different types of dolphins (each pod was 60 or more dolphins together) including babies, and pregnant female gray whale! Plus an amazing and gorgeous sunset. So much fun! My kids loved it too!

Very Relaxing

The ride was calming and very smooth. We saw two blue whales and tracked their activity for about one hour. The guides were full of knowledge and did their best to ensure that the whales could be seen from different angles. We were able to capture great pictures.

'thar she blows!'

We had a good time during this short cruise. I didn't expect to see any whales as it's not the high season for whale watching. We were able to follow two blue whales and enjoyed the captain's exclamations of 'thar she blows!'. we also so 10+ dolphins and were delighted when they would ride up along side the boat. Overall a good trip.

awesome customer service in lue of bad weather.
Wed, Dec 23, 09   10:00 AM TKRiexinger Female 40-49 Unspecified Family Without Children
Our trip was postponed 1 day due to bad weather. Gale force winds etc. (thank you for not taking a chance on the ocean with our life's :) ). The next morning we went out but it was still a rough ocean and we saw only sea lions around a bouy but enjoyed a beautiful view of the coast. We received a voucher to return any time for another 2 hour whale watch excursion. I asked when it expired and the reply was NEVER. That is rare and we appreciate it especially because DanaWharf has no control over the weather! Great customer service and damage control in the face of bad weather. We are from NIagara Falls NY and may never make it back to beautiful California but if we can, we'll be back to Dana Wharf! Thank you K & T Riexinger

A MUST HAVE
Tue, Aug 7, 12   10:00 AM tk0001 Male 30-39 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
Klasse Sache! Es ging pünktlich los und pünktlich zurück. Getränke an Bord zu fairen Preisen. Die Crew war hilfsbereit und stets zu Scherzen aufgelegt. Wo auch immer die Chance auf einen Wal oder Deplphin war - wir fuhren hin und wurden belohnt. Würde ich wieder machen und daher auch weiterempfehlen.

purchased whale watching tickets and saw whale....

What a nice 'value' experience, the boat hands were decent, the guy working the grill on-board 'yes' grill (really decent food) was friendly, and congenial. The captain, knew what he was talking about with regards to whales but didn't talk too much....all in all well worth the $29 per person.

We had a great time. It was so neat to see all the sea lions, dolphins, and whales. The crew was so nice and very knowledgeable. Worth every penny and made lifetime memories.

We love the whale watching experience and try to book a sea venture out at least once a month during the whale watching season. This last trip I was lucky enough to get a wonderful whale-tail shot and numerous shots of dancing dolphins. It was magnificient!

We got to see a dozen dolphins swimming around our bite and even got to see 4 whales! Our captain was awesome, very informative and kept us out there for an extra half an hour just to experience the whales. Thanks for the great experience!

Truly Amazing! Can Not Wait To Do This Again!
Sat, Apr 5  2:30 PM TINATIMMONS Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
My sons and I loved it! We saw dolphin sign right away, several swam with the ship and I got some fabulous photos. We also saw two Gray Whales and traveled with them for several minutes. The bonus was when we slowed to the outer sea buoy that was packed with seals, a seal pup came up to the ship and checked us all out - he was so adorable. The Captain was extremely knowledgeable and provided the perfect amount of information. The crew was very friendly and my sons had a very tasty lunch from the galley. Dress very warmly - a sweatshirt is not enough for an excursion in open water!

Unique Experience
Tue, Aug 18, 09   1:00 PM tinarae Female 20-29 Domestic Tourist(s) Couple on a Date
The whale watching adventure was a unique experience. We saw sea lions, many dolphins and a blue whale. It is incredible to see these anminals in their natural habitat. Way better than the zoo. The boat was clean and comfortable, and the ride was enjoyable. The staff was very friendly. We went on Tuesday which is half off, a great value! I would definitely recommend this adventure.
