We had a great time! We didn't see whales but lots of Porpus. They gave us 1/2 off for a future event.

I was disappointed that we didn't see any whales.

I know there isn't a guarantee to see whales, but Dana Point is supposed to be the best at finding whales. Maybe they aren't??? I went on a date & thought it would be perfect. It still was a good date, but would have been much better had we seen whales!

Fun adventure

Everything about the staff and boat was great! A fun trip, and there is a little thrill not knowing what you will see. They do announce immediately that if no whales or dolphins are seen, that they give a voucher for another free trip. Fun two hours and would recommend.

Fun boat ride but no whales.

It was a nice day for a boat ride and saw lots of dolphins but no whales. The boat was nice but no whales. They gave us a ticket to come back but seeing as how they are not seeing whales and I live 2,000 miles away it doesn't seem like a free ticket is all that valuable.

This was a nice event. We did not see any whales. We did not see many dolphins either. Make sure it is sunny and warm outside.

We saw a whale

It is amazing that the migration of the grey whale is taking place in front of our very eyes. The whale watching cruise is a wonderful opportunity to observe the migration of this magnificent animal.

A great way to spend brunch without brunch

We were lucky to track a mom and baby with some other critters, it was a great time, my only complaint was that the captain kept the animals continually to the right of the boat where all the tall men gathered so women and children were forced to look and take pictures under arm pits, maybe you could try to move back and forth

It was a very good two hour tour. Boat was clean and not over crowded although there were quite a few people on board. I am going again with other family members in April.

Nice day out but no whales
Sat, Mar 10, 12   1:30 PM Hikmer Male 40-49 Local Couple on a Date
Didn't think we wouldn't see a whale during the festival of whales, but we didn't...beer was cheap $5. Got a coupon to go again but my friend was from out of town. Otherwise it was a relaxing boat ride...pay the extra $ for the Catermeran...way smoother ride and you have shelter inside from the cold wind.

Wow!....What a GREAT time.

Dana Wharf Whale Watching was the best deal. They were very knowledgeable and professional with the way they handled, presented and explained about the whales/ ocean life. They give you a free trip/ and or a discount if they do not locate any whales or dolphins for you to see. For the price....."the best deal"!

Great time!

We saw and followed a whale and saw it surface 3 or 4 times. About 15 dolphins followed close to the boat on the way back. This was a fun and safe trip. The boat was very stable in the water. There was also a sheltered area on the boat in case you hit cold. Also hamburgers and hotdogs cooked to order on board. You will have fun!
