I loved this boat trip.

I loved this boat trip. It was a very nice celebration of the equinox with the dolphins, great people, friends and music. The captain took us straight to the dolphins and made our experience very magical.

The captain was very knowledgeable and passed on to us a lot of information about the sealife. It was a smooth ride and was fun when he speeded up to get further out to sea. (8 miles) Weather was beautiful. We only saw dolphins and some sun fish but enjoyed it anyway. It was good customer service to give us 1/2 price passes for the next time we want to go. I greatly recommend this outing.

We had a good time. Bummer that we didn't see any whales, but we saw a TONNN of dolphins, and they up close too! And they even gave us a pass to come back for FREE, to try and see whales again.

I thought the Boat, Crew, Food, and the Ice Cold Beer were Great! As far as catching fish it didn't happen. However, I am not a fisherman. I smoked cigars, and brought a flask of Jameson. I had a Hoot!

We always enjoy our boat ride through Dana Harbor. The captain and the skipper are entertaining. The boat is comfortable and they make sure it doesn't get too crowded.

Enjoyable afternoon on the water

Southern California summertime, on the ocean, beautfiul day, who could ask for more? Even though we didn't see any whales (spent quite a while trailing a pod of dolphins and we did get a "whale check" for another trip, it was a great excursion. The glass of wine at Wind and Sea capped off an enjoyable afternoon

Fantastic cruise

Wonderful, informative cruise. Watching the blue whales was well worth the cost of the cruise. The Captain's running comnmentary on the lives and activities of the blue whales made the whales even more impressive. Would take the cruise again anytime.

Buyer Beware

We purchased whale watching tix as the company guarantees whale sightings or a return ticket free of charge. Most whale watchers are from out-of-town but we're local so we thought we'd take a chance. Of course, the animals are wild and we weren't able to find any even though the crew tried diligently. We ended up seeing only one pod of dolphins so, when we returned, we requested the return tix. We were told no way, because we saw dolphins, and dolphins are whales! Did you know that? If you don't, you're probably smart enough not to be lulled into the gamble in the first place! As a side note, Zerve couldn't be nicer. I had a problem with the order and they cheerfully fixed it right away.

An A+ Adventure on the High Seas at Dana Point
Tue, Sep 4, 12   2:00 PM Martim1 Female 50-59 Local Family With Children
Permission to come aboard was granted and as Captain and crew greeted their eager passengers, no one anticipated what would happen next. Indeed, the Dana Wharf Whale Watching activity proved more than all aboard expected. Greeted soon after departure with sightings of two Blue Whales and a hammerhead shark, this activity is definitely well worth the time and investment for those looking to see these beautiful creatures in their native environment. As an author who writes fiction based on sea adventure, I was delighted to be treated to such an amazing experience - witnessing the rare Blue Whale at such close proximity. This is definitely a "must" for those visiting Dana Point with Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching as the host company to provide the experience. Fair Winds ~ Marti Melville
