Had a great time

The group on the boat was small enough that there was no problem seeing the sea life. We saw whales even though both the grey and blue whales were not running. We saw "minkey" whales. We will return when the blue whales are running.

TOOK MY WIFE, HER MOTHER AND MYSELF ON A WHALE WATCHING RIDE WHILE IN DANA POINT. THE BOAT WAS VERY CLEAN, THE CREW VERY FRIENDLY AND WE DID GET TO SEE A WHALE AND QUITE A FEW DOLPHINS. WOULD RECOMMEND THE TWO HOURS RIDE JUST FOR THE ENJOYMENT OF THE BOAT RIDE.

It was a very well done trip with a very competent crew. I only rated it less than enthusiastically recommended as we were not able to see any whales on our trip.

Best Ever

We knew that we were a little late for whale watching as most had migrated north, but our crew spotted a mama gray whale and her baby. We had dolphins racing our catamaran. The ride alone is worth the trip, it is thrilling and so much fun - catamarans are the best! I would do this trip again and again, maybe a bit earlier. The crew was wonderful! Thank you for a great ride!

Whale Watching was the highlight of our trip!

We were a group composed of three sisters and our husbands' in California for the wedding of our cousin. He recommended an afternoon of whale watching, and we decided to go, even though it was late in the season. To our delight we not only saw dolphins, but a mother whale and her baby. Jr. was quite the showman! His antics had all of us on the catamaran staring with our mouths agape. The youngster provided an outstanding performance that was simply breathtaking. Our pilot kindly extended our cruise in order to allow plenty of time for everyone to be amazed. It was a magical afternoon.. We all decided that this cruise was the highlight of our trip - and that is saying a great deal as the wedding we attended was held at the Chart House in Dana Point, on Saturday, the day of the Flower Moon! Only the sight of one baby whale hamming it up in what was surely pure joy, and who loved showing off could top those two events! None of us will ever forget it.

the weather was great and the boat ride was as well. We saw a mother and little one (whale) and a large pod of dalphins. It was done well with a great deal of info on the animals.

We had visited Southern California before and never spotted any whales. We decided to take the Dana Wharf Whale Watching tour. The Captain and crew were very informed about whales and dolphins and not only gave tips on spotting whales and dolphins but also shared factual information in an interesting way. On the trip we saw several Grey Whales, Sea Lions, and a large group of Common Dolphins. The Captain cruised slowly and turned the boat frequently allowing all passengers to get a good view and take photographs. We took the 2 p.m. cruise after the morning fog lifted. That worked well for visibility. After the cruise, I was able to spot more whales from the shore using the tips I had learned on the cruise. We would definitely go again.

A glorious day, did not matter that we saw whales. A nice surprise that we were given a rain check because no whales were spotted. Just the boat ride, view of the coast, the fresh air, and hints of Catalina made it all worth while.
