The crew was fantastic, informative, professional, experienced, zealous of what they do. They managed the trip exceptionally. We were fortunate to track a whale for an hour, see sea lions, blue shark and best of all, the Dana Point sighting of the Orcas. The crew did a great job in making this a better experience than I ever imagined.

My two friends from Texas and I had the privilege and honor to be on the Dana Wharf whale watching trip that got to experience the pod of Orcas off the coast of Dana Point on January 3, 2012. It is definitely an event that goes in all of our Top Ten Most Exciting Events of our lives. The Captain and staff were outstanding. I wish future watchers the luck that we had to be part of a rare event such as this.

We spotted a gray whale on the surface just as we were leaving the harbor, then locked on two two grays who were on the surface off the bow for more than an hour. Great views of flukes. When the dolphins came to play, one of the whales surfaced and rolled over. Really a great show.

My 7 year old granddaughter said it was best week of her life (then she added - "in November') We saw thousands of dolphins. Very exciting - no whales but no complaints!

We were very fortunate to see two blue whales almost immediately after clearing the jetties. The captain tagged along with them for over an hour, allowing for many sitings. On the way back to the harbor, we came across some Risso's dolphins...a first for me. The crew did a wonderful job making sure everyone knew where to look and when as well as provide lots of interesting facts on what we were seeing. My grandchildren and I had a wonderful time.

Smooth Sailing

The ride was great. The fog was not their fault. Would recomend the Catamaran to anyone. The crew was very helpfull. I learned a lot about local sea life. I live in San Clemente and now ask my self why it took so long to discover how smooth a ride the Catamaran provides. No whales on this trip but plenty of other life forms. On deck and in the ocean.

We were warned that at season end, there might not be whales; and, although we did not see blue whales, we found 2 small minkies which was fantastic. Also there were many herds of dolphins who swam up close/under our boat and demonstrated their perfect synchronized leaping, including mothers and babies. I had been out of Dana Point 2 other times on regular vessels (ie Dana Pride), but this catamaran trip is superior with less people and a smoother ride. You can talk with the crew, see more and it's worth the extra $10 per ticket.

We left right on schedule. Guides were courteous, knowledgable, and friendly. Sealife was explained very well. I'd recommend this trip and hope to go again.
