Great lot of fun

Dana Point is a beautiful area, the wharf is interesting and fun, and the Wind and Sea restaurant on the wharf had yummy soup and fresh calamari to warm us up after the trip. We had a great time and will certainly do it again, and recommend it to friends and out-of-town visitors.

Enjoyable cruise

We watched about 100 dolphins swim in and out of our wake. Crew was friendly and kept the passengers informed with interesting information. It was a very cool day on the water and since we were unable to spot any whales, the crew gave us free tickets to come back out again, which was respectable. I would recommend the trip to anyone, it was definitely worth it.

I got this trip as a gift from my sons for Christmas and we decided to use it for a Twilight Giant Squid fishing trip. We had an incredible time!! The Dana Warf staff, boat captain & deckhands all were top-notch and I would HIGHLY reccommend this trip AND location!

Experience of a lifetime

Took our 8 year old grand daughter and her dad out (curious to see what a "giant squid" was all about). Sea was rough. It was windy and cold. Everything was against our adventure, but it was a resounding success. Captain and crew were gracious hosts. People were friendly and helpful (we obviously were new to squid fishing). We had a wonderful time despite all that was working against us. Planning on taking other grand kids out as opportunities arise from year to year. Enjoyed the squid fillets the next night for dinner. Affordable family experience.

Took my 15 year old son to fish for giant squid as he'd seen an article on a yahoo news page. It was freezing and windy, several people threw up, but we had a wonderful time!! Can't say enough nice things about the crew. All guys were patient with our inexperience, very helpful and enthusiastic. Definitely recommend.

We had rough seas and cold weather but captain and crew made sure everyone caught squid and had a great time. Awesome experience and a great value on the price.

My husband and I took our 3 children ages 8, 5 and 1 on this whale watching cruise. Everyone had a great time. The boat captain was very knowledgable about the sea life we saw; my kids really enjoyed listening to the facts about the whales and their migration. We saw a mother whale with her newborn calf, and several seals. No dolphins though! :(

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Jan 8, 13   12:00 PM gerina1 Female 30-39 Local Individual
The Captain and crew were excellent. They were respectful to the life in the ocean and shared a lot of information about the wildlife we were fortunate to see (birds and marine life). I will definitely go again. We encountered several dolphin, sea otters and a few shy whales during our time out in the ocean. The Captain took him time let us take it all in.

Great first-time whale watching experience!

We were very fortunate to have good weather and we were able to observe two grey whales. Crew was friendly and very informative and our guide made sure that we had the chance to watch these whales do what whales do :) Definitely plan to take this tour again to observe blue whales in the spring!
