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

My husband and I enjoyed the activity. It was a very relaxing and beautiful ride. The boat was clean and well maintained. It was not overcrowded and the crew was friendly and professional. In my opinion, this trip will be enjoyed most by children 7 and up. The younger children were a little bored and were slightly confused as to where to look, as the dolphins move quickly and are hard to see. I would love to take the trip again at another time of year, as it is well worth the price and I have recommended it to my daughter as a fun place for a date.

Our experience was very nice. We unfortunatley did not see any whales this time but we were issued a voucher for another try at it at our convienience. We did see sea lions and a pod of common dolphins.

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.

Interesting and fun facts about the dolphins. We didn't see whales so they gave us a "whale check" for another trip anytime. Can't wait till we can go again.

An enjoyable day
Sat, Mar 10, 12   8:00 AM Bradyaf Female 70+ Local Family Without Children
We enjoyed our trip very much. The skipper was quite informive, discribing the differant sea life that we encountered along the way, and also, some that normally are in our coatal waters but did not appear. Unfortunately, the Whales were among those that did not appear. We will use Dana Point' Wharf's Whale Watching Tour again; maybe we will have better luck next time.

Lots of dolphins, no whales.
Fri, Mar 9, 12   12:00 PM ThomasBohan Male 70+ Local Family Without Children
Saw several hundred dolphins which was fascinating. Did not see any whales, so the crew issued "whale checks" (good for future trip) which is great for us locals. Captain was informative. Long boarding line formed early with no place to sit, and the boat was quite full, thus many of us had to stand throughout the whole experience which was not good for this senior with back problems. Women's restroom was foul smelling and the toilet was clogged; unacceptable!

For me and my wife really catching a fish would have just been a bonus. We got to see a seal, dolphins. pelicans, which I mite say were a little anoying. But without them it would take away from the experience. Just being on the on the ocean was fun for us. The captian got the anchor stuck and watching the crew try and correct that, was interesting. As for the crew of the boat I dont believe I have seen a more nice and helpful group in a long while. Especially for california. Im from ohio, and that kind of politeness and service is what you see on fishing tours on Lake Erie not off the cost of California. For this reason my wife and I will go back. we got to see some people catch some fish, and that was exciting. Being on the ocean was as equally exciting. my wife liked the kelp she said it was pretty. It was just a fun 5 hrs and I plan to go back in the near future. I will be going on the longer trip though this time. The couple we went with said they go to 100+ft and that is were the wife and I want to go next. So we are looking at the 3/4 day trip.next. andyways this was an enjoyable experience for us we are older couple but had a blast. coodoos to the captian and the crew. we will see you next time...

Handicap assistance zilch
Sat, Mar 3, 12   10:00 AM lois9lane Female 50-59 Local Family Without Children
I emailed the company to ask about wheelchair access prior to purchasing tickets. They responded quickly and were helpful, suggesting specific sailings that would be best to take on the date I selected. The times worked into our schedule. But, upon check in and the entire sailing there was no assistance with boarding, and simple things like where the rest room, where the best location for us to sit was, and getting on and off with grace. The cruise was glorious, even though we didn't see whales, only dolphins. Oh, they didn't give everyone in our party a coupon to return with 50 off either. Only gave it to 3 out of 5. Even after I asked. That sucked.

The trip out included interesting narration on whales and porpus. We pretty quickly found ourselves in a group of about a hundred porpus' and two grey whales. We had an escellent time.

Trip was exactly as advertised. Short time before we saw dolphins and porpoises. Saw a gray whale that was skiddish but the captain did a great job of staying with him. I would highly recommend this trip.
