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.

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!

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

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!

Awesome!

This was the best whale watching trip I've been on. We did one last year with this company and enjoyed it so I rebooked with them this year. It was really a great trip. We saw whales and then bottle nosed dolphins. The captain sped up the boat so they would follow and jump in the wake, it was really a good time. They are great!

Glimpse of an Amazing Journey
Tue, Jan 28  2:00 PM fani1139 Unspecified 70+ Combination Group of Friends
Very pleasant 2-hour trip from Dana Wharf with great Captains who are Marine Biologists, qualified to talk about the sea life for which we search. On a beautiful day, we looked to the horizon and were not disappointed. A pair of whales kept us thrilled with their spouting and a few flukes, but mostly just playing side by side through the swells. Near the end of our time we encountered a large pod of Bottle-nosed Dolphin. They love to play in the wake of the boat, swimming right along side us ~ not unlike some kids when you get out the camera. :-) When our Captain cranked up the engine to return to port, the dolphin did not miss the opportunity to show off and enjoy the large wake. They rode those waves and leaped out of the water ~ high into the air ~ much to the thrill of the passengers. This was a repeat trip for me and two of my three guests. Without a doubt, we'll do it again!
