Amazing to see magnificent grey whales live!

The captain of our Whale Watching trip has been doing this since 1989. He is extremely knowledgeable and I felt he still was in awe after seeing these magnificent creatures so many times. He know where to go and how to approach the whales. The crowd was wonderful and they don't overcrowd the boat. I thoroughly enjoyed the views of Dana Point and San Clemente as well. I came away with new wonder and appreciation for God's amazing creatures. Worth it!

Fantastic! Great whale watching!
Sun, Aug 11, 13   2:00 PM RonZuber Male 60-69 Local Couple on a Date
This was a very special day for us...we got to see at least 6 massive blue whales and we were able to get so close! The pilot of the boat knew when and where to linger for us to have best views and had great commentary! The boat (the Catamaran) was in great shape, spotless and very comfortable. We live here and are just amazed we had not visited this tour before...we will definitely be back with friends and family.

1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

We saw a gray whale as predicted. The highlight, however, was where we found the school of sardines being fed on by about 4 kinds of sea birds, sea lions, and dolphins, all in a broiling frenzy with sardine scales floating on the water. Lots of great close-up pictures! Beautiful day with fairly calm seas.

boat was waayy overbooked. couldnt fish
Sun, Aug 26, 12   5:30 PM ronschilling Male 50-59 Local Group of Friends
There were twice as many anglers on the boat as would be a comfortable numner. Bad weather and bad catch was secondary because there wasnt enuff room on the boat to move around. every fish i caught was crossed with 1 or 2 other lines.

family summertime fishing
Sat, Jul 26  6:30 AM Ronparedes Male 50-59 Local Family With Children
the captain was very nice and interacted with all of us customers, but the deckhand Justin was not so nice, was not happy, I noticed when customers needed help Justin would help as if he was mad unhook their fish turn and walk back to his buddies and talk about how stupid some customer are!! When Justin unhooked customers fish he dropped it back in the ocean and walk away with out explaining why to the customers and kids .SAD ! when you take your family out and spend 245.00 dollars you expect some friendly help and understanding. w my family and I like Dana wharf but will try to avoid y boat with the deck hand JUSTIN aboard. thank you the Paredes family.

No fish

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.

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.

Dana Point Whale Watching
Sun, Feb 13, 11   12:00 PM roneal Male 40-49 Local Family With Children
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.
