First, I could not buy a ticket with my PC because, as always, the display indicated that the trip was sold out. How ever, I had no trouble using my IPhone to get tickets. Parking was difficult. The trip and crew were friendly and helpful, but they could 't find fish that would bite. My daughter had a great time.

We saw 2 fin whales and a couple of grey whales, one of which breached several times. We all had a very memorable experience.

A great policy

We were not fortunate enough to see a whale but Dana Wharf has a great policy of issuing a free return visit at your convenience, doesn't expire. Can't do better than that... The boat was clean and comfortable and the crew did everything they could to get us a whale. We would recommend this tour to anyone.

Had an incredible time. Took my wife and two young children out for a 2 hour whale watching trip. We were able to see a large pod of Dolphins as well as two gray whales. The captain and crew were great. Well educated in the sights and wildlife. Food onboard the boat was good. Great experience overall and great memory maker for our kids.

It was a great day. The crew was friendly and enthusiastic. The boat was clean. We saw a whale and followed it for about 35 minutes. Then took off and found a school of dolphins about 500-600 strong. The crew was very professional. My sister was in from Pennsylvania and enjoyed the cruise thoroughly.

Fantastic Experience

We saw 2 magnificent blue whales and a huge sunfish that was sunning himself and did not move away. The crew gave us a lot of information about the animals we were looking at. Even though the water had high waves getting out into the ocean, the captain made the ride very smooth until we were in calmer waters. Also, the hot dogs were delicious.

Being from San Diego, we're used to the idea that Southern Cal whale watching was limited to grey whale migration, so were pleasantly surprised to learn of the blue whales off Dana Point in the summer. The price is reasonable for a two hour ride, the crew knowledgable and congenial, and the catamaran fast and smooth. Though whales had been spotted the day before, we didn't encounter any this trip, but did see three species of dolphin and had a great time. Will definitely do this again.
