Great day, great crew!
Thu, Mar 27  12:00 PM Pattieb1 Female 60-69 Combination Group of Friends
We had a great day. We didn't see any whales but our captain followed a pod of dolphins and gave us some great information! We continued the hunt for whales but while there wasn't a single one for us to observe, the ship and crew were great!

No whales..but fun day at sea
Thu, Mar 27  12:00 PM FranDawson Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
No whales on our whale watch but captain kept us entertained while we kept looking. We came across dolphins, more dolphins than I have ever seen at one time..certainly made up for no whales. The weather was sunny but a choppy sea kept us from doing much moving around on the boat. Check in was easy. Recommend you get there a bit early and line up if you have a particular spot you would like to sit.

Whales AND dolphins

Fantastic experiences. We saw a whale right off the dock and later we were surrounded by happy dolphins. Highly recommend, it's a very special experience that anybody should have.

Good Trip

Intelligent, comprehensive commentary was much too loud coming out of the speaker on the top deck, abrasive. We saw whales, dolphins, seals, sunshine, ocean and the coastline. Except for the too loud; was a great afternoon..

Fun but too many people
Sun, Mar 16  12:45 PM brian1y Male 30-39 Local Group of Friends
It was fun. But there were so many people, and so little space that lines were tangled every few minutes, and there wasn't a chance to cast or do anything other than just drop the hook straight down.

Whales, whales ~~ everywhere whales!
Wed, Mar 12  12:00 PM JamesPeeler Male 70+ Local Group of Friends
I never saw so many whales in all my life ~~ all at one time. Wow. They were called False Killer Whales and hardly ever seen here at the coastline of Dana Point. Literally hundreds of them.....at least that's what it seemed like. It didn't matter where you looked, there they were, not just one or two, but four, five, eight, ten, swimming together alongside the boat, in front and in back, swimming in unison everywhere! I even saw one "fluke" out of the water. It was fantastic. We had a couple with us from Kitali, Kenya, Africa and they were awe struck. Thank you, Captain Dave.

Fantastic experience and loads of fun
Sun, Mar 9  1:00 PM Dsmith0049 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
This is my 2nd go with Whale watching. The weather was beautiful, and the reservation was a snap. Parking was a bit challenging but they offered us another time frame if we were not able to park in time to make the trip. Arrive at least 2 hours prior to your departure as this is whale watching season and especially if its on the weekend. The captain was knowledgeable and respectful and we saw whales and lots of dolphins. Fun for any age group. The water was calm and so pretty. You must experience this as it is just unique. Bring your camera! Looking forward to another one soon!

Weve gone out with Dana Wharf several times in the past. It's always a good time. The crew and staff are always helpful and informative. This year the weather and nature complied perfectly and it was a stellar day!
