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...

Absolutely AWESOME! Don't change a thing!!! Not only did we see a ton of whales, we saw and road along a huge school of dolphins, which was soo much fun. We highly recommend this trip and will definitely be back to take it again.

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.

Dana Point/Dana Wharf Whale Watching
Tue, Sep 27, 11   5:00 PM Captainjim Male 50-59 Local Family Without Children
Dana Point is a Gem on the Southern Cal coast. The Dana Point Harbor is a great place to visit, shop and dine, less crowded than our neighbors to the North (Laguna, Newport and Huntington). The people at Dana Wharf, the Captain and Crew are all very professional and knowledgeable. There is nothing more spectacular than being on the ocean and experiencing the amazing sight and sound of a Blue or Gray Whale as it breaks the surface, or the Dolphins putting on a show next to the boat! A must if you have a chance!

Wonderful Trip - well worth the cost

We are local but took family from midwest with the hopes of seeing a Blue Whale. The Captain was tremendously informative and, best of all, had the skill and experience to take us to the exact spot where one of those natural wonders of the world surfaced four times. We got some great photos, including one tail shot. To top it off, our trip back to port was accompanied by a large group of dolphins that seemed to enjoy frolicking with the boat. All in all, one of our best experiences in a long time. Will highly recommend it to others.

Surprise $2 fee to clean each squid. Couldn't take home whole. Didn't find out about fee until near end of trip with 16 squid in sack. Great trip otherwise.

I was with my fiancee' on a date and we both love the water. We were definitely hoping to see some whales, but we didn't. We did, however, see dozens and dozens of dolphins that were very active and fun to photograph and watch play. We would definitely do this again and recommmend this to anyone.

fishing trip from Dana Point
Rating: 4
We had quite the experience

We went out hoping to find yellow tail, bass and others. The first thing we ran into were squid, not just squid but tens of thousands of them. None of us had caught squid prior to this trip, it turn out to be hilarious, fun, wild and then some. The first thing they do is blast you with their propelled ocean water, then ink the heck out of you next...it went flying right into our unsuspecting fishing cohorts. We laughed so hard at the expression of our unsuspecting family member who got it full boar into his face. We were covered with ocean water and ink from head to toe. The boat was great! Food good. Only wish we could have caught more.. meaning yellow tail, etc. We did get a couple small bass. One member packed up thirty pounds of squid to bring home.. caught far more but one can only take so much on a plane. The crew work their rears off, excellent crew on board.. clean boat can't ask for more. We plan to go out of Dana Point Wharf again.. it's the best. Really a great ride, and experience. The sea life alone can keep you more then entertained. Spectacular!
