We're satisfied with the activity because we watched lots of dolphins. However we couldn't see whales at all. If we had seen whales,I would have given five stars on this review.

Best Whale watching in So Cal!!!

I live in Carlsbad and usually take visitors on whale watching out of San Diego. They were not offering whale watching on Saturday 11/26, so I found one in Dana Point. It was AWESOME! The harbor is much smaller, so parking is easier, We were on the open ocean in 5 minutes and spotted a grey whale 10 minutes after leaving the dock! They later brought the boat right in the middle of a school of about 20 dolphins with babies! The guides were extremely knowledgable about the whales, dolphins and local birds. HIGHLY recommend Dana Wharf tour!!

Between whale watching season......
Fri, Nov 25, 11   2:00 PM ReggieF Male 50-59 Domestic Tourist(s) Family Without Children
Went whale watching between seasons so expectations for seeing a whale were not high so of course did not see a whale. The captain of the boat spotted a large pod of dolphins and did a good job keeping the group entertained by traveling with the pod for about 45 minutes. Captain provided good commentary as we "mingled" with the dolphins. Will go back during season to see whales.

It's getting late in the season, so I didn't have my hopes up on spotting whales. It seemed the crew had that attitude as well. The weather was great, the catamaran handled the chop well and it was a good day on the ocean, even if we didn't spot anything. We'll be back to try again, thanks to the guarantee and free return offer.

Whale watch was wxcellent.

We thoroughly enjoyed the whale watch. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather, smooth seas and multiple viewings of wild life (20+ whales, sea lions and a large pod of dolphins). Probably conditions are not always as favorable as we experienced. The boat was comfortable and the crew was very accommodating.

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.

Plenty of Dolphins, no whales.
Sat, Oct 15, 11   12:00 PM dpingree Male 40-49 Local Family Without Children
Boat was great, not crouded. Captains seemed bored and beer was expensive. Nice weather...ALLOT of Dolphins...but no whales. Oh, and a bouie covered in lounging sealions on the way in all for the low low price of 220$. Nice trip out but I'll make sure to call in for whale sightings before reserving again...or at least bring a fishing pole and my own beer with me next time.

We lucked out and saw many blue whales, fin whales and three types of dolphin. We had perfect weather. The captain was informative and enthusiastic. He stayed out past our 2 hour time because we were having such a special experience. We were very pleased!

had family in town from the mid-west. it was a really great time and we saw a large number of whales. the captain was excellent at getting to the best viewing spots. the only bummer of the day was the parking ticket i received after parking where your employee told me to park and did not give me a permit. they say they will reimburse me for it and i believe them...

Great Activity! We got a free do over because of not seeing any whales on our first trip. We went back on Friday and enjoyed seeing 7 - 10 Blue Whales. Will do again on next trip to Southern California. The coastline is a awesome view.
