The crew were amazing, always on hand to deal with the fish and such. Although we didn't catch a lot of fish we got some, and that's how fishing goes.

Great seeing the dolphins they were very social and fun loving. Wonderful 2 hr boat ride in the clear blue ocean; well maintained boat. Guide did a great job getting us a view of the 1 gray whale that surfaced a few times.

Wonderful day on the ocean, we could see Palos Verdes Penninsula to the north and Catalina was crystal clear! Beautiful scenic trip up to Laguna Beach, spotted one gray whale and pods of "rare" white sided dolphins. The boat was clean, the staff very helpful and the scenic cruise up the coast was wonderful. It was fun to see my childhood beach in Laguna from the "ocean" view. GREAT time had by all and look forward to doing it again ASAP. Thank you all so much!!

The Best!
Fri, Jan 20, 12   2:00 PM moonmarshall Female 30-39 Local Group of Friends
This was my 3rd excursion with these guys and we saw a whale!! Even if we hadn't, it would have been a great day just to be out on the water. The captain stayed with the whale for about an hour of the excursion so there was plenty of opportunity for all to take photos or videos. We've had the same captain every time and he's great! The crew is nice and the boat is clean. We won't go out with any other excursion company. These guys are the best.

Whales must have been at lunch as we saw just small parts of 5 far off and no dolphins. Boat before us got treated to a pod of orcas!

Nowhere to sit or get out of the sun...

Crew was great, had a good time, but the boat has no seats to rest on and its a long trip... Also, there is no indoor galley so you can't get out of the sun on a hot day.

Don't miss this great adventure!

This excursion was WONDERFUL! The captain of the boat worked hard to find us Whales and was very knowledgeable and educational. He maintained a respectable, yet close, distance to the animals. The trip was 2 hours and we were all really sorry to see it end. This is an inexpensive and wonderful way to spend an afternoon and is definitely something I will do again.

The whole trip was great. Weather was great, fishing was even better. Lots of keepers and just as many fun to reel in throw-backs. Captain and deck hand were really terrific as always.

Whale Watching
Sat, Jan 7, 12   10:00 AM karenmiller1 Female 50-59 Local Group of Friends
Although we didn't see any whales I was not disappointed. I saw dolphins playing and jumping in the water. I had never seen them other than Sea World before. They were very close to the boat and I could see the different types of dolphins. It was very exciting. I also saw many sea lions floating in the ocean with their flippers pointed towards the sun. The two hours was the perfect amount of time. It was a wonderful experience I plan on enjoying again.

OMG - Orcas
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

My two friends from Texas and I had the privilege and honor to be on the Dana Wharf whale watching trip that got to experience the pod of Orcas off the coast of Dana Point on January 3, 2012. It is definitely an event that goes in all of our Top Ten Most Exciting Events of our lives. The Captain and staff were outstanding. I wish future watchers the luck that we had to be part of a rare event such as this.

No whale seen ...
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)
Tue, Dec 27, 11   12:00 PM marcdacier Male 40-49 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
The tour is not very long and, therefore, the chances of seeing a whale really are a function of whether whales are in the direct neighborhood or not. They should provide more info up front (I'm sure they knew we would not see anything that day since they do the same ride 3 times a day). It is nice to see dolphins and sealions though but ...
