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

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.

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

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.

Rode with a huge school of dolphins. Didn't get to see any whales, but it was amazing. It was a very windy, choppy day so make sure you take lots of things for motion sickness.

I am from Dana Point and had never been Whale Watching. My boys are huge animal lovers and took them on this trip. They had a great time! We saw lots of dolphins, a seal and a mother and baby whale. The crew was great as well. Very nice. Will be back again! Thank you for everything.

We had a group of 5 on the boat "reel fun" I didn't catch anything but still had a fun time with my buddies. this was the 3rd time on this boat and night fishing is a lot of fun and my group will be returning time and time again. this crew was there when the people needed them and let you fish how you wanted to.
