sort of sucks

sort of sucks, period. It was my Japanese friend's first sportfishing trip. Only 5 SMALL fish were caught by 50 people. She said "I will never go fishing again" after that. Now you can imagine how awful the trip was. Don't waste your money.

Whale watching... minus the whales

Thank god for the dolphins and sea lions! Not to mention the bloody marys! All in all it was worth getting up for! Haven't given up on seeing a whale up close and personal! Until that day, The discovery channel will have to do!

Great Birthday Party!

We went on a morning Whale Watch for my son's birthday party and it was GREAT! All the kids had so much fun! We didn't see any whales, but it didn't matter at all to the kids because we saw LOTS of dolphins and sea lions and they enjoyed just being on the boat! We will definitely be doing this trip again!

Whale Watching

We enjoyed a beautiful two hour trip and followed two California Gray Whales at a respectful distance on their trip down the coast. The narration provided by the captain and others was both educational and enthusiastic. The crew was as delighted as the passengers in observing these beautiful animals. Really enjoyed our outting!

Excellent low-priced outing
1/2 Priced Whale Watch (past event)

An enjoyable trip. The crew was friendly and informative, giving educational info about the wildlife. We saw sea lions and a very large pod of dolphin. Unfortunately the whales eluded us but the dolphin put on a delightful display and our captain maneuvered the boat so that we would get a great show. Weather was great and a group on the boat, about 100 students, along with the group we met who moved to CA from Paris, made it even more enjoyable. Can't beat the deal!

AWESOME

I'm tempted not to write a great review for the simple fact that I don't want the secret to get out! :) The Catamaran is the way to go if you want to get on the water and do some whale watching or sightseeing. I plan on several trips this year, and did several trips last year. It's smooth, it has the capability to move faster if you spot something and want to get there quicker, and the best part? You're not elbow to elbow like you are on the fishing boats. There's a 30-something person max which guarantees you a super comfortable trip! And, the captains are incredibly knowledgeable! If there's something to find that day, you can be sure they will find it. Nothing better than a day on this boat, some groovy reggae tunes, sun, and the big blue ocean!

Truly wonderful whale watching experience!

This is the third Whalewatching adventure i've been on this past month and was by far the BEST! In addition to the excellent weather - we lucked out-- dana wharf's catamaran is a great way to sail! This adventure, being an hour longer than the other tour (which is also great!) gave us more time to get to where we could see the grey whales. The dolphin love swimming in front of the boat and are incredibly fast! I think both tours are excellent but if you can afford the extra expense and extra hour for the catamaran cruise it is quite worthwhile. Hope to go back out again very soon! Thanks!!

Even though the grey whale eluded us, we were honored with the playful antics of a HUGE group of Common Dolphin! We had a wonderful time!

Unbelievable Experience
Sat, Feb 12, 11   12:00 PM Gruenewald Female 60-69 Local Group of Friends
My husband and I took relatives and friends who were visiting us from VA, CT and KS. We had the most exciting ride ever. The day was perfect. We saw whales going south and whales going north which is quite unusual we found out. Some of the whales showed off their tails while other jumped clear out of the water. We saw about 8-10 whale jumps. Then as we were returning, a group (there were so many we could not count them) came along side our boat and put on a show for us . They were swimming with us and jumping up and out of the water. It was more that we ever exxpected and the Captain said it was the best trip of the season. I highly reccomend this trip to everyone of all ages.

It was fun for the most part. The crew was cool; however, it would have been nice to real something in.

fun to get out on the ocean and hope for fish. The crew was very friendly and help full. Would recomend this for any group of friends for a fun day away from the office.

The boat ride was excellent. Not too choppy. I have been on smaller boats and felt nautilus. They did everything in their power to find whales, and provided us with info on the species. We saw two whales and some other sea life. Very fun, especially, for the reasonable price. Our group consisted of graduate students from across the country that are currently going to school in California. We found Dana Point to be a beautiful area worth visiting as well.
