We safely and respectfully followed a whale and her calf,dolphins and harbor seals. Capt. Chad was very informative, and his love for the sea and its inhabitants made the trip even more enjoyable. The boat was very clean, well maintained and handled beautifully even in windy and choppy sea conditions. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

A thoroughly relaxing and delightful time

If you can enjoy 2 hours on the open sea, then you can't go wrong on this trip. We did see dolphins, and even a grey whale, but we delighted in the journey. They are honest about what you might see that day, so ask.

Good time, no whales

We saw two types of dolphins, which would be especially cool for those who have never seen dolphins, but we were really hoping for whales. Since we didn't see any, we got a voucher for half off if we go again. Was there in mid-Feb, and it was a nice time out on the ocean. Boat was nice and clean, and the crew seemed to be searching pretty hard. We'll give it another shot.

Fortunately I was able find the right motion sickness med. Sunny day, 2 spy hops, couple of flukes, lots of dolphins close to the boat. Captain had hick-ups the whole time. Quality entertainment. Nothin' bad to say!

Always enjoy the whale-watching trip

We usually try to take a whale-watching trip whenever we visit the area, usually once or twice a year. We don't always see whales, but are never disappointed. We saw gray whales this trip. The dolphins are always around and very entertaining. Also, if the weather is good (and it usually is) the trip on the water and the fabulous view of the coastline make the trip worthwhile. The crew is always friendly and very informative.

I live in a beautiful Victoria, BC which has it's own fleet of whale watching boats/etc. -- but to be out on the sunny coast of southern California in a lovely boat with a great crew was fantastic. I, my sister, niece and two cousins from the East Coast had a fabulous time as we watched two greys and tons of dolphins play and feed in the blue water during the very relaxing 2 hours on the Dana Wharf boat. The crew is well informed, friendly and reliable -- very organized and professional. If you don't take the time to go out with the Dana Wharf crew, you've missed a wonderful time!

The captain and staff were excellent. They knew where the whales were and followed them with great precision. It was unbelivealbe to my wife and myself how they could predict where and when they would surface. My wife got a great picture of the whales tail. A unusual and unique experience.

Our captain and his spotter took us to the path of 3 whales migrating to Baja within 20 minutes of the start of the trip. Great job!

Would go again at twice the price!

Awe inspiring! Breathtaking! I smiled the whole time. I was happy just seeing all the dolphins play but to actually spot a whale and see it's tail while hearing a live informative narrative was awesome. I was there with my niece because it was on our bucket list but I would highly recommend it for a date. There's food, a bar and even the NFL on the tv during the trip and it's the smoothest ride.

Try it. You will love it.

In addition to the beauty of the ocean and the ocean mammals, the captain and his commentary were impressive and entertaining. His knowledge of the mammals and the sea is extraordinary. Our little group highly recommends this experience and Dana Wharf Whale Watching.

Exciting Trip
Sat, Jan 14, 12   10:00 AM jsolson Female 60-69 Combination Family Without Children
We often take visitors to special things in the area, and whale watching is one of the true highlights. This trip we found and followed a grey whale for about 20 minutes, getting his rhythm, seeing the deep dive with tail flop a number of times. Really exciting. I love it because this is where the whales live; it's not SeaWorld. The boat trip up and down the coast is also very beautiful. I'll be back, alone or with visitors, many times again.

Great trip, crew really knew what they were doing

The crew tried very hard to find whales and did find one. However they found 50 dolphins that wanted to run with the boat. Very cool.
